Default Kung Fu Panda 3 - Best Buy Exclusive - June 28th



Kung Fu Panda 3 3D is coming on June 28th, 2016 but only to Best Buy in the USA. Will still include the regular BD, Dvd and Digital HD.

Alternately, Amazon Canada has a listing as well:

Not sure if this is Dreamworks' attempt to shun away from 3D releases but Kung Fu Panda 3 3D is going to be a Best Buy exclusive for the USA.
What this means for you?
Supply problems, lack of promoting, higher prices due to lack of competition and the inevitable studio stopping 3D for the home market because lower sales, despite the reason will translate to lack of interest.

And since it's the 3D version and an exclusive all in one, why waste money on the dvd pack-in?
If I had access to a Canadian IP address I would purchase that one as even with shipping it would come out less than the Best Buy USA version (Canadian IP to activate the UV copy.) I don't think I could find a 1 cent filler item to get Free Shipping but even so, sales tax puts it over the imported one.

As my nearest Best Buy is like 30 miles from me I often times make enough excuses to go to the city. I have delayed my trip a week so I can pick this up. I often times then go to Sam's Club, Target and Red Robin while there. A few other stores as well sometimes.

Costco, Barnes and Noble, Target, and Red Robin is the usual plan when my wife and I go to Best Buy to pick up the latest 3D movie. Like you...too far a trip just to go for one thing. Once were there...we make a day of it,lol

With the B&N Criterion Sale coming up it's almost a waste to go on Tuesday, unless the sale starts by then as well. Guess if anything interests me B&N wish I might have to .com it. It's nice holding it in my hands but to make another trip to the city a week later for a B&N sale... meh.

Listed at $27.99 in this week's ad.
That's the average running price for a 3D combo, I almost take back one of my comments, almost.
