The LEGO Movie Released Today

Today is June 17th which is release day for The LEGO Movie on disc format. It’s been available digitally for a while now, but us LEGO nerds are only in it for the minifigs, am I right? Despite the self-imposed pre-order embargo by Amazon, they are now shipping and selling The Everything Is Awesome edition. If you haven’t pre-ordered, the current asking price for is $34.99. This should be the same price at Walmart but at the time of this writing, their site wasn’t functioning preventing me from verifying the priceEdit: Looks like Walmart is selling for $34.96, and the movie is available for Pick-Up-Today at participating locations -Nick.

Target.com also has the movie in stock along with a deal: buy The LEGO Movie and a LEGO videogame or toy and get $10 off. The deal online doesn’t state this, but the discount will only be applied if you select 70802 Bad Cop’s Pursuit, 70805 Trash Chomper, or 70804 Ice Cream Machine or The LEGO Movie videogame for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U or 3DS. This deal is also good in stores.

Amazon Plays Hardball With Warner

sad-amazon

Soon after I had posted information on the release of The LEGO Movie: Everything Is Awesome Edition Blu-Ray/DVD/Ultraviolet combo pack from Amazon, they removed the ability for a customer to preorder the movie. I had thought they sold through their allocation from the distributor but now it seems that they are doing this for other Warner titles as well as a negotiating tactic. According to this New York Times article (via Gawker), this is an attempt by Amazon to gain leverage with suppliers. Warner isn’t the only one affected by this strategy as Hachette Book Group, which is slated to release J.K. Rowling newest book, is also under the gun. This strategy seems a bit puzzling as Amazon risks losing sales and potentially customers to other venders.

If you haven’t been able to pre-order The LEGO Move: Everything Is Awesome Edition with exclusive Vitruvius minifig from Amazon or Target (they seem to be sold out as well; either that or Amazon was their distributor), Walmart still has the movie available. Other places to pre-order include Best Buy ($34.99), Barnes&Noble ($41.99), and Kmart.

The LEGO Movie is scheduled to be released on disc on June 17th. It is also available digitally right now.
