I hate when people do that. In some cases, okay, but these are so limited, y'know? Which makes me wonder why Disney didn't think enough to increase this years Wave amount instead of decreasing! There's certainly an audience. If something lesser know as Dr. Syn can sell out almost instantly, certainly Zorro could do the same. Ugh.

Depends on where you live... I doubt they'll sell out that fast in Ohio-land at $45 a pop --- even at Best Buy which is the only place I've seen these sets.

(Nonetheless, I stuck to my guns and got anime instead... It was cheaper this week! I felt the really big release video release of the week was North By Northwest on Blu ray. Yet another title I can't afford to pick up now...)

Okay, Dann-o.

You broke me!

I'll buy 'em this week!

It's not as if there are other Hispanic superheroes that I can really enjoy! :lol:

(C in my name IS Hispanic so I can crack this joke. Darn political correctness.)

I could care less if Guy Williams (Zorro in the Disney series) wasn't Mexican or Latino, period. He was Italian -- close enough! :D

(He was a good Zorro and certainly the most memorable TV Zorro and among the best of the bunch. I liked the sense of humor he had and he very good at fencing on the show.)



Nah, Zorro's cool... Without him, there wouldn't have been Batman and I doubt Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. would have been as memorable in another role.

Wow, talk about a fast turnaround! ;)

For fun, I just checked Best Buy's website and one of the seasons is sold out at my local store, and two locations further from me are sold out of both. Don't underestimate the man with a black mask! 8)

Only the inner case, to allow space for the pin. The tins are the same as usual, only black, thus making them only the second and third volumes of the WDT line to alter from the standard "film can" silver. :)

Oswald's freebie wasn't that fortunate! ;)

6 DVDs have always been able to fit into that small a space.

It's not until recently with the premium being placed on shelf space that companies have bothered to package them this way.

I've picked up my share of re-releases of anime series that came packaged like (the inner) Zorro packaging.

It's long past time this was done.

I've seen recent reprints of older TV series like Buffy and Angel being repackaged into older "twin DVD set" cases, too. Of course, there are at least 3-4 DVDs in those so-called "twin sets."

***********

So, now that the Disney Treasures line is more or less officially dead, what's up next? When is Disney finally going to release the single-shot theatrical shorts like "Lorenzo" and the "Destino" special on home video?

Lots of people have been waiting on Destino for years.

Lorenzo's another short that deserves more exposure than it got.

I wouldn't be surprised if next year's Fantasia sets contained more than just the two main features. ;)
