-->> ..Thanks to m'boss man Mikey for holdin' the fort together while the Con tied me up in wierd n' wonderful circles. The tuff' but fun trip to C-con '07 left me offline sadly and a double whammy of a dry spell on big TMNT news..wasn't til' i got back that the Shell-brains started to pick up steam again durin' the final month of Summer !! Least back to school'll be cool cuz Today's the big day ((for those who havn't gotten the Discs early )) the TMNT's fourth movie hits the discs in multi-formats.. here's your news Round-up and some specs on the various versions you'll find around town stateside ..((special thanks to my friends at T-drome and C.A.G. ..))::



TMNT- Full Frame, Widescreen ::Standard DVD SRP $28.98

TMNT- Widescreen ::BLUE-ray SRP $34.99

TMNT- Widescreen ::HD DVD/DVD hybrid Comco ((both Hi-def and standard versions are on this special dual disc !! ~tOkK)) SRP $39.99


Courtesy of Roseangelo::



*Exclusive 2-disc Deluxe Edition DVD for $22.99. ((Prolly the most practical version to get at this time for the most content ..the version tOkKster will get first.~t !!))

Regular Edition DVD for $16.99.

-Circuit City

*DVD for $16.99 + free action figure (the free action figure looks to be one of the mini figures that were available at Toys R Us earlier this year).


*I thought I had read WalMart would have the movie packaged with the PC game for $19.99, but now I can't find confirmation on this. ((**THIS IS CONFIRMED**~tOkK))


*DVD for $16.99, no special bonus.
Based on this information, it would seem that Target is the place to go for the "Deluxe Edition."

**Don't forget that Season 5 of the original cartoon and Volume 2 of Fast Forward are also available on the same day. There are reports that some stores have already put these on the shelf, so you might get lucky and find them early if you look."

BOTTOM LINE:: looks like 'TARGET' and their 2-disc special version is the best bet if you want the most bonus content regarding the movie least in the U.S. ..!!

TMNT - 'Wal-mart' palette 4 A.M.

- BEST BUY, Kmart , FYE ,Suncoast,ect. seem to offer just the standard DVD,HDVD/DVD,and Blu-ray versions ..with no bonus promo premium exclusives ((like the Turtle mini-figures.))


Kmart however will be offering $7 discount on TMNT - Original Series S.5 thru Aug 11.


- Cicuit City are also be offering TMNT- TOS Volumes 3 & 4 at the deep discount of $3.99 each this week !!
