You on March 22nd:
awesome! right after i just bought the standard blu ray bc i thought this wasn’t happening………….
Oh, I was really hoping for a set like the original series RV Walker Head or something, bummer to hear it’s only special features but absolutely still showing support and getting this (I LOVE special features after all) but maybe we can start getting box sets for season 2 and on.
The Walking Dead home releases have been pissing me off lately. Expensive limited edition Season 5 guaranteed to be a double dip, because it was released months after the basic set hit the shelves and now this separate release of FTWD. Double dip much?
Did you know about the LEs for previous seasons? If so, you knew one for S5 was coming. Although the release date was stretched out, the image & the price weren’t, allowing ample time for people to decide on what they wanted to buy. However, the high price of it is a worthy complaint.
