Cars 2 on Blu-ray/DVD Release Details

Cars 2 Five-disc Combo

Update: I added the Toys’R’Us retailer exclusive below.

Cars 2 will be released in less than a week on Tuesday November 1. And since its the norm lately to offer highly anticipated releases in multiple formats, I thought I’d make a post on the different options available to you.

Amazon Price Matches Toys’R’Us

Amazon marked down a few LEGO Star Wars sets to price match against Toys’R’Us current Cyberweek deals. However, they don’t offer a free MINI Vulture Droid or a tankless Astronaught glued magnet, but they do offer free shipping and no tax to most states.

In addition to the above deals, Amazon has a pretty good price on 4184 The Black Pearl as well, $84.99 down from MSRP $99.99.

The People vs. George Lucas DVD Released Today

There’s a lot of reasons to hate George Lucas. He gave us Jar Jar Binks, tweaks to the Star Wars movies, midichlorians, etc. The problem is, we keep throwing money at him. At its core, it’s a love-hate thing really and there’s a DVD being released today exploring and maybe even celebrating that twisted relationship we have with Mr. Lucas. Below is the filmmakers’ excerpt about the documentary:

They gave him their love, their money and their online parodies. He gave them…the prequels. The passion the original STAR WARS trilogy inspires in its fans is unparalleled; but when it comes to George Lucas himself, many have found their ardor has cooled into a complicated love-hate relationship. This hilarious, heartfelt documentary delves deep into Lucas’s cultural legacy. Utilizing interviews taken from over 600 hours of footage, and peppered with extraordinary STAR WARS and INDIANA JONES re-creations lovingly immortalized in song, needlepoint, Lego, claymation, puppets and papier-mâché, above all this film asks the question: who truly owns that galaxy far, far away—the man who created it, or the fans who worship it?

The DVD also has some notable extras such as an interview with Gary Kurtz, producer of Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back, and another feature called The People vs. Star Wars 3D. You can learn more about the film from the website:

The current price for the DVD is going for $20.99. If the extras don’t interest you, you can purchase a digital copy from Amazon for $9.99, or a 24 hour rental for $2.99. iTunes also has the movie with a myriad of purchasing options as well, including HD.

4184 Black Pearl More Widely Available

In all the excitement of the 2012 pictures, this one pretty much flew under the radar. But in addition to 4184 Black Pearl being available at Target stores, (linked above) also has this set for sale. Priced at $99.97, you get free shipping and no tax to most states. LEGO Shop@Home also has this in their inventory for $99.99. You pay for shipping, but since October is double VIP points, you’ll get 199 points credited to your account. There is also a report of this set showing up at Costco at a discounted price of $79.99. Lots of buying options if you’re hankering for the ship from the first movie which also happens to be the best Pirates movie.

Jack Sparrow Minifigure Alarm Clock

Continuing with their minifigure-styled clocks, LEGO introduces a new character in the line up: Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. It’s available for pre-order over at Firebox. According to this Eurobricks post, lists a Barbossa clock as well, but no pictures of said item are on the site.

On a side note, I saw the Ninjago minifigure clock at K-mart the other day, flaming sword accessory and all. Amazon lists him for $24.99.

The Clone Wars: The Complete Season Three DVD and Blu-ray Preorder Available from Amazon

Amazon is currently taking preorders for Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Complete Season Three [Blu-ray]. Currently, they’re offering the Blu-ray version for $39.99, down from $59.99, and the DVD version for $29.99, down from $44.98, so now’s the time to get them. Remember, this season contains the episodes “Clone Cadets” and “ARC Troopers” which form the backstory and follow up to the Season 1 episode “Rookies,” generally considered one of the best episodes of the series. Along with the Nightsisters, Guardians of Mortis, Citadel Rescue, and Trandoshan arcs, this season proved to be an exciting addition to the series.
