Universal's Classic Sci-Fi Ultimate Collection
With little or no fanfare, Universal released the second volume of their three-disc, sci-fi classics collection on September 11th, and just like Volume One it is a Best Buy exclusive. The set includes: Dr. Cyclops, Cult of the Cobra, The Land Unknown, The Deadly Mantis, and The Leech Woman.

Volume One was made in a limited run and now sells on sites such as eBay and Amazon for over four times the origianl $19.99 price, and Volume Two looks to have been manufactured in the same quantities.

Like the previous set, Volume Two is worth the price for those that like classic sc-fi from the 50s and 60s, and with Halloween right around the corner it makes for a prefect night of movie watching. Just wanted to let everyone know it was released before it's sold out.

I bought Vol. 1 directly from Amazon last Feb, almost a month after it's initial release. I really want this release but there isn't a Best Buy anywhere near me and I don't know if Amazon will sell this one, like they did with the first one. It's also difficult to find on BB's website but it is on there, I might get a Gift Card and buy it from there on Monday. I wish Universal would drop these Best Buy exclusive releases for their classic Sci-Fi movies.

There are resellers selling it on Amazon for $10 or more over the actual retail price. And I agree, it is difficult to find on Best Buy's site; their search function is dreadful.

I can't buy from the resellers because I usually pay by money order and Amazon says you can't buy things from resellers without a credit card or gift certificate.  I won't order anything online with a credit card and I have used a gift certificate twice on Amazon but didn't realize I cxould purchase from the resells until now with those and the coin star machine keeps breaking down. I'll just get this set from Best Buy's website with a gift card.

Why not just use a credit card? Makes life so much easier.

Yeah, why the hell won't you use a credit card?

I'm waiting for the "oh I don't trust the internet with my details" comment.

Unless you just don't have a credit card then fair enough

He said he 'wouldn't' order anything, which to me says that he has a card and won't use it.

I bought it last week at Best Buy. Dr. Cyclops is an early SF favorite of mine

Probably one of those "the government will steal my hair and toenails if I used a credit card online"

I don't have a credit card, don't want one and won't use one. Yes, it is a trust issue but it's me I don't trust with one, I overspend on DVDs every month as it is and I can see myself getting into trouble, if I used a card to order online. At least with gift cards and money orders, I can limit the amount I spend. I have my Best Buy gift card, I'm going to order this collection tonight and enjoy the movies when they arrive. Happy
