They're just showing us the exact thing they ordered.

I got THIS. Figure the SF will all be online eventually anyway, I can wait for them.
I got the same thing essentially, but ordered the items from Amazon. Came out a little cheaper.

I had already seen it several posts up. You know, in the one that was quoted.

I needed to visit Walmart anyway so I timed my visit to coincide with today. My heart leapt when I didn't see that package on the doorway display - I thought it sold out already but the video dept. had a rack of them. Phew!

Why don't you send Jarod a PM and ask him whether he'd be willing to fix it?

Or, you know, use the button --->

Because I don't think it's against the rules, so no report post and I generally disdain running to mama and papa, and sending a message to a single person does not inform a community on shared concerns.

For informing a community on shared concerns, you want the Questions, Suggestions & Feedback forum, which is provided for just such a purpose. For purposes of an ongoing thread in this forum, your recommended options are the ones I suggested in my previous post.

Any other comments you might have on this issue should be taken to PM; please do not further disrupt the discussion.

Paramount is doing it again. Tomorrow Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit is coming out on blu-ray and it has a exclusive to Target bonus disc with 25 minutes of extras. I hope that they don't pull this crap again with the Star Trek 3 blu-ray...

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray Problem

Paramount will do it again and more, especially since there's so many Trekkies that will buy anything with the Star Trek brand. They know exactly who they're selling these products to.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray Problem

Has there been any word from Paramount on this issue? Actual word from them about their intentions with retailer exclusives going forward would be nice.

I imagine they'll be going forward with it. They know there's a market for these kind of releases and that Trekkies being the big fans they are will happily purchase 5 copies of the same movie. Profit is ultimately what matters at the end of the day.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray Problem

Very nice of them. I'm almost tempted to buy the set just for the special features (despite not liking the flicks, I'm still fascinated over the production of any film). Here's hoping they soon deliver a better set of the original TOS films with better picture quality.

There's a thread about that over here, plus the TrekToday thread about it here.

Closing this one.
