I'm going with Best Buy for the movie mode, and since I preordered I will get a free Minion doll. Looking forward to getting this tomorrow.

You should have gotten the free minion at the time of preorder.

I made a small error. I said Best Buy's exclusive was the "3 New Mini-Movies" but that is in fact at Target and other places too.

Best Buy's exclusive is, as mentioned, the Movie Mode. I'm guessing that's a specially-manufactured disc only for Best Buy? (maybe a commentary mode where the Minions speak in English)

Im taking the Target ad to Best Buy and getting a price match for the 3D version so I can get the English speaking minions thing. I got the minion doll when I preordered to the poster above btw.

Sure didn't. Well that is some bullshit. I will have to refund my $5 and give Target my business if that is the case. Unless they still have some left over.

Bought mine from Amazon. My wife actually scored a stuffed minion doll from the theater lobby claw machine before we went to see it. My dog uses him as a toy

Why isn't Amazon price-matching target on that 4-disc (with 3D) version? C'Mon Amazon, make a guy happy!
