I've been to a few places and I've noticed that several stores are selling Cars at different pricepoints, and different gifts. I'll also give you a quick review of the Cars DVD...
Incentive: Cars Tin free with purchase
Extra: Cars Blockbuster Giftcard
Explanation: The Cars Tin looks great. It looks like it has a candy paint coat which is similar to the teaser posters that came out way back when. The tin is big enough to hold the DVD, but you could also use it to store other things as well. Here are a few pictures..
Incentive: Free 3-D Lenticular Cars Poster
Extra: Cars Gift Set DVD $29.99 (includes 4 Die-Cast metal cars from the movie)
This is what the 3-D Lenticular Poster looks like. (Actual size unknown)
Incentive: Free Bonus DVD Disc
Extra: Regular Cars WS/FS $14.99
Explanation: If you buy Cars from Wal-Mart, you'll get a Bonus Disc of Special Features that mostly deals with Rascal Flatts...
- Making of Life Is A Highway
- Life Is A Highway Music Video
- Cars: The Making of the Music
- Under the Hood TV Episode (as seen on ABC Family)
Incentive: Free Download of Susie, The Little Blue Coupe (the short that inspired the Cars movie)
Those are all the places I've checked so far, if you know of any other places, feel free to add to the list! Here's what I think of the DVD...
Review of Cars DVD
Disappointing. The lack of bonus features really mars this DVD. Each Pixar DVD release has been an improvement on the last, and each had cool interactive menus and unique extras (virtual aquarium on Finding Nemo DVD's, Hero Profiles on the Incredibles DVD, etc.), the Cars DVD has NOTHING of the sort. No commentary, no production notes, no character portraits or stills...
If all you want is the movie, then go ahead and purchase it, but if you like the extras that Pixar usually releases, I say rent the copy to see the new Mater short, and then wait for a 2-Disc release.
