**Update** "Twilight Forever": Special edition of complete saga coming to Blu-ray in November -- EXCLUSIVE

**Update 8.23.2013**

You can now pre-order the complete Twilight Forever box set at Amazon.com or Walmart.com!
(Get ready I am not in a very SPARKLY mood about this though. Read on...)
That's right TwiPeeps, get your credit cards, debit cards and first, second and possibly your third born child ready to hand over to Summit Entertainment or Lions Gate or whoever...  

If you detect a hint of sarcasm you are correct. 
(Oh and my blog my rant by the way! #Justsayin)

So yeah here's the thing....
When I saw what Walmart wants for the Blu-Ray set, I just about fell out of my chair.  Almost spilled my glass of wine even, and let me tell you I do NOT like to waste my sparkly juice at all!

Anyhoooo, I know some of you would say, "Well no one is forcing you to buy a thing."  And I get that my SPARKLY friends, but here's the thing.  I am in love with the Twilight Saga!  Hook, line and sinker, and I always will be!  Twilight is my drug, sooooo its NOT easy to just say no to this SPARKLY, SHINY, and FANGTASTIC Twilight Treasure!  I am sure Summit knows all this as well.  I mean its not like us Twilighters keep our love for Twilight and Edward Cullen a secret! lol 

However that is the beauty of this country.  No, no one is forcing me to buy or do anything.  We can choose to buy what we want, when we want.  However, Summit or whoever can also choose to jack the price up even higher on us as well, (Gosh lets hope NOT). But they can simply because they know we are captivated, mesmerized and lets face it OBSESSED with The Twilight Saga.  Personally I like to say I am a very, VERY dedicated collector of SPARKLY treasurers, but whatever you get my point!  LOL 

All I am saying, is it would be so nice if "they" would thrown us a bone with this Saga, and not have us pay through our fangs on an item I am sure we all own and then some. (I am only talking about the movies here ok. Don't get me started on the other merchandise they've tossed our way over the years).  

Yes, I know there is going to be SOME extra footage we have not seen before, but that's really beside the point.  Is there going to a hundred bucks worth of extra material? Probably not! 

I mean $107.98 is a bit much dontcha think? Well I feel it is, and I bet I am not alone on this one to some degree. (However, it is cheaper then the Harry Potter collectors set, but lets NOT go there either allll right! I mean I saw a HP set at Costco for around $300.00! UGH!!) 

Anywhoo, with that being said I guess my point to this rant is...--well it is... Ummm urr, well I am not really sure of my point other then I just feel they have over priced this item, and I am tired of being milked of my cash, but whatever!  
Just use your buying powers wisely, and make sure you not only have enough Cullen cash on hand to purchase your Twilight treasures, but you check all your options out as well.  Just in case a better deal is out there to be had! 
Cause lets face it I bet Alice didn't see this one coming! :D

So far I have only found two sites taking pre-orders for the Blu-Ray set; 
Amazon: $52.49 with Free Shipping. (check the details on the free shipping)

Or
Pre-order the DVD set for;
Amazon: $64.99 with free shipping. (again check the details b/c I find it odd that the Blu-Ray set is cheaper)
Happy TwiHunting Peeps!  :)

  2. Mandi29 I think there will be some never before scenes from Twilight as well, but you will have to check the details more as the date draws closer to be sure.. I know I have multiples of the movies as well,so I am hoping for something new too.. :)
