Wow, that Mummy Trilogy slip looks kinda nice, but I like having all 3 separate. Well, I still need #3 with slip haha.

As far as Best Buy goes, they've lost a lot of my respect. I have four stores in my zone. One store is 3mi away, then 25mi, 40mi, and 50mi.

The three closest stores are considered 'small' stores and most BDs are listed as 'not carried by location'. Top Gun is one of these and it's not evena niche title! No store near me carries Criterion, FUNi, and a ton of others. Again, the closest Best Buy who carries really any BDs is 50mi away, per way.
Most of the BBs around me show having both Top Gun and Good Will Hunting, but a few that show having Top Gun don't have Good Will Hunting and vice versa.

Sorry, I am confused again. There is a "FAKE" version of GWH somewhere?

No, here is your ShinseiRomeo survival guide to slipcovers glossary....
  • Dirty - Used
  • Real - First Press Release, Combo pack w Slipcover and Stickers
  • Fake/Fake-Ray - A BD release lacking either slipcover, DVD or digital copy. This only apply to lesser versions. If it only comes naked, then it's real

This is all you need to know to understand the odd creature otherwise known as ShinseiRomeo aka loverboy

I like it! You forgot a few I including fake-ray!

And fake BDs only apply to lesser versions. If it only comes naked, then it's real.

That is weird. I went to walmart earlier and they had the "Real" version. I wonder if I should call back and double check. Maybe I made a mistake.

EDIT: Wait a minute. It had less features? I thought it was suppose to be missing just the DC.

Is the only difference a digital copy? I am looking at the box now and it lists all of this:

Van Sant audio commentary
11 Deleted scenes with commentary
Behind the scenes featurette
Academy Award Best Picture Montage
Miss Misery Music Video
Additional behind the scenes footage
Theatrical Trailer

Awful lot of extras for a fake version.

Ooh that may make me buy it day one. Their exclusive slips have typically for preorders only and are quite rare.

Aa far as I know, yes, besides the cover different on the front and back. I don't own the lesser version though so I can't confirm. I'm just surprised to see a lesser version offered. I find it repulsive to see 'walmart versions' of BDs which always have less features, such as numerous digibooks like Seven that shipped in a standard case.

It doesn't bother me a bit. I make my own digital copies and they don't involve a starved couple GB file that is tied down by DRM.

I agree about Seven and other digibooks, but some people don't care for the digibook packaging. I know Green Mile, Papillion, and Outlaw Josey Wales are still unavailable in standard cases.

You forgot to note that Fake-ray also applies to BDs that come in DVD sized cases.

Like I said earlier. It must be some walmarts that have that version or at least not all walmarts have them in the same location. When I went there, they had the DC version in the new release section.

But Ill call to double check. I took a picture of it w/ price. So I could have Best buy to price match it. After getting home and finding out there is another version. I looked at my phone and sure enough I can not see the top of the case. It cuts off, half way up the walmart sticker.

I'm with ya 1,000% HD. I own a good 100 digital copies. How many have I used? Zero

As a collector, I dot want any gimped version in my collection when there's one with more features available. Even if it's a DVD or DC, I'll still pay more for it and never use it. Only exception is 3D.

This makes no sense. I am a serious collector and always have been, but if I can get a BD only version for cheaper than the BD/DVD/DC version I'll go for it especially if it still comes with a slipcover. I know that I will never use the DVD or DC so it just makes logical sense. Unfortunately, this rarely happens in store or online. The BD only is often times MORE expensive than the BD/DVD/DC version. I'd sure like to know why.

I wouldn't call a missing DC making a release "gimped", especially not if it means there wont be a Blu-ray + Digital copy on the cover (if it's in the Blu-ray border it's OK).
