Wonder if CostCo will have it?
According to my "Costco Connection" magazine, yes, they will. Didn't say what the price would be, though.

And I'm getting both the 2-disc DVD and the Blu-Ray. Mr_Whatsit and I are talking about treating ourselves to a Blu-Ray player instead of exchanging Christmas gifts this year, so I want to be ready. But for now, we only have a regular DVD player.

I wouldn't expect a great price from Costco. They aren't caught up in the Amazon/Walmart/Target/Best Buy price war.

Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

I'm probably going to get the 2 disk dvd. unless i decide last second just to get the single disk. I think it sucks that none of the goodies come with the regular dvd. Why should people that cant afford blue ray players and high def tvs suffer. Its just not cool. Id like to have the insignia set or even the Enterprise model.

Yeah, that's kind of strange. Guess they rely more on sale of bulk foods and clothing and such.

Oh well, guess I'll shop around then. But who am I kidding? An old Trek nerd like me will likely purchase the super-duper bells and whistles Blu-Ray extravaganza.

Since I need both arms and legs and can't afford to offer them on the black market for blu-ray capability, I'll be going with the two disk version.
I just bought a spare BD player for $90 a couple weeks ago, so they aren't that expensive.
Yes, but it's the HDTV that'll get ya.

I'd like to have all the features of a BMW, but for now I will be happy with my Monte Carlo, and that it is drivable.

I got a 26" 720p lcd- at 26" there's no BIG difference between what I bought & a 1080. A good dvd on my upconvert player looks great. The newest release of Voyage Home absolutely blew me away. My TV, HDMI cable & player came in at under $355.
Near HD on a budget.

If I EVER should get a 32" or bigger, THEN I'd have to go BD, I conjure.

Your arrogant display of self-satisfied superiority is most unbecoming.

Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

I was getting the Amazon exclusive with the Enterprise statue, but $100 was too pricey this month, so I'm getting the Target exclusive with the plastic Enterprise model instead.

It looks like Amazon may have sold out of all 5,000 copies of it now.

Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

Are y'all sure that there will be a one-disc Blu-Ray of this film in the US? I am only aware of the 3-disc one.

EDIT: Yeah...I think that there's only the 3-disc BR, in the US anyway. I can't find any other version on any online site.

No matter, as I'll be buying that version anyway.
