    WTF???

    Who opens a dvd like that to steal the comic? That's big time bad Karma there.

      "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

        Just picked up the DVD from Best Buy with no comic inside. Before I go back to the store to complain about that though I wanted to check here if the DVD is supposed to be blank, as in there's no art printed on the disc, it's just white.

          The dvd has a Babylon 5: The Lost Tales logo on it and has a picture of the station on it, though no insert. Sounds like you got a strange copy.

            Nope. I got it from "make_it_so_marketing". Very nice guys, at least so it seems. By the way, for anyone who might be interested: At the moment, there are a couple of copies of the comic offered on ebay, at reasonable prices. So if you're interested, you might want to take a look.

              No, my copy has the B5 logo and a picture of the Station. As for the comic, note that not all of the DVDs are even supposed to have the bonus comic. Amy posted this tip over on the moderated newsgroup:

              To those hoping to find the bonus comic being given away with _some_ copies
              of TLT at Best Buy, be aware that the only distinguishing mark is an itty
              bitty, teeny tiny red sticker with the Best Buy logo that says "EXCLUSIVE
              COMIC BOOK INSIDE." It is _very_ small. Also, the price marked on the
              item's sticker is $22.99, but it rings up at $17.99 when you get up to the
              register.
              That's a big help.

                I didn't even notice the sticker on mine until I unwrapped it while driving on the interstate

                The comic was a nice little surprise.

                  Never mind my last post on the spoiler thread...I ended up breaking down and bought the dvd anyways. Being the fact that the Folsom Best Buy only had 8 copies ordered in and only were about 4 left when I went into the store plus the limited number of special Comics that were issued at best buy. I decided to give up a couple days of food to get this once in a lifetime special tribute to Andreas and Richard comic. I know that's sad I'm giving up some food for Babylon 5 but I figured next week when I get paid I can get the soundtrack and food that I do want. So anyways my review of the dvd will be coming soon..btw, how's the soundtracks as well?

                    Mine did have the red sticker. I'm thinking I may just save this one and go buy another. Would add to the sales and could have people sign the blank one.

                      That gives me hope.

                      I think I'll have a look during my lunchbreak.

                        For those who may not be able to get this but who are interested in the tribute to Rick/Franklin and Andreas/G'Kar, I've written a fairly detailed description/synopsis and I'll be happy to send it to anybody who PMs me. Remember, it's not a 'story' per se, it simply expands on what's said about them on the DVD.

                          I think we need to write to WB

                          Thanks Jan..he's not the only one that's made that mistake due to my first two initials.

                          I called BB back later in the afternoon and the flunkie I talked to said they only got 4 copies and were sold out!! I explained that I got in there first thing in the morning and the guy that morning said they got 44 copies but they hadn't come in yet!
                          After dealing with Walmart and my eyeglass fiasco, this is getting to be looking more like a Shadow conspiracy more and more. (see my LJ for details)

                          What the hell kind of marketing is this that A) Best Buy gets the special edition, and B) the stores only get less than 10 copies!? I'm not the only one, someone else somewhere reported their store only got 6 copies. I can understand 'limited edition' but this is rediculous!
                          I have a rain check (which is another near fiasco had I not been paying attention) in any case and can only hope that it's not the regular copy and has the comic. Otherwise, this middle age B5 fan is going to be getting very Minbari all over someone in charge of distribution.

                          (I told my daugher in a nutshell what the comic story was and she told me 'Now I know why you cried! I thought it was just because it had them in it.')


                          So, haven't yet to see it or get my hands on a copy. At least the numbers will look good to WB. Well yah! If you produce a smaller amount and they all sell out, it looks good to any number cruncher! Idiots.

                            I don't have this week's Best Buy ad in front of me at the moment, but I'm fairly sure it advertised a minimum of six per store, so if a particular store said they only got four, they would be guilty of false advertising.

                              Well then that just tears it.... and proves that the guy in the morning lied to me to cover his butt. 6 copies per store!?!
                              We are starting a campaign folks. That is not smart marketing and says that the distributors and possibly WB was being way too cautious and underestimating the demand.

                              Anyone else agree with me on this? More ticked off than you can possibly imagine.

                                It did state that, Joe. I've heard of a few places that quite a few of the specially marked DVDs though, so there may have been a certain ratio sent depending on how many a store stocked? Dunno, I'm not a retailer.
