For those that don't want to double dip - the 9 titles available on Blu-ray "for the first time ever:" (Goldeneye, Octopussy, The Spy Who Loved Me, You Only Live Twice, The Living Daylights, Tomorrow Never Dies, Diamonds are Forever, A View to a Kill and On Her Majesty's Secret Service) are now online as WalMart exclusives for a little under $10 each.

Update: The follow-up post notes that the remaining titles have been split as exclusives between WalMart, Target and Best Buy. Thanks to the poster for clarifying that.

That's not true. Only Goldeneye, Octopussy and Diamonds Are Forever are listed on the WalMart site as exclusive individual releases. A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights, and Tomorrow Never Dies are slated to be Target exclusives, while the remaining 3 (On Her Majesty's Secret Service, You Only Live Twice, and The Spy Who Loved Me) will be available at Best Buy. Not sure if these will be later on and not 10/2 like the WalMart titles.

If that's the case, who did Target tick off to get all of the duds out of the remaining discs? Not that I don't like all of the movies in their own way, but of all of the James Bond films, those listed as Target exclusives would have to be at the bottom of my list of most wanted.

What a stupid way of releasing blu-rays. Good thing I just got the collection so I don't need to deal with going to multiple stores just to get the movies I would want.

I agree it does make it difficult to say that there are no marketing tactics thrown in here, with the 11 (or 13) of the blu-rays that were previously available being re-released everywhere, with NEW card wraps, and the 9 that were NOT ever out on blu being split into 3s, exclusive to three separate retailers. Plus, all coming out a week after the Bond 50 box.

Nonetheless, I am happy myself to have the box with everything in one place.

Walmart actually started selling their three early. They're $9.96 each.
Target started on Oct. 2 and A View to a Kill and Tomorrow Never Dies are $9.99, while Living Daylights for some reason is $14.99
Although some reports say Best Buy is also selling their three, apparently they are not going going to sell theirs until the 23rd and I understand the price will be $14.99 each

I was just on Walmart's site and only Diamonds Are Forever is there and it's out of stock online. I can't even locate Goldeneye or Octopussy.

I ordered all three online last week and received them Tuesday 10/2.

Robert Sean Mcphail's comments about the Best Buy trio is a good example of how there are so many diverse opinions in the world. "The Spy Who Loved Me" is widely considered Roger Moore's best Bond movie. Not that many people warmed to George Lazenby in "OHMSS", but as for the movie itself it is considered one of the best ones in the series and Diana Rigg as Tracy is arguably the best female lead character in all of the Bond films. "You Only Live Twice" certainly will not make the top five of greatest Bond films, but it's a lot of fun.

I'd argue that of the three sets of three "exclusives", Best Buy got the pick of the lot.

See? It takes all kinds to make a world....

I'm having a hard time finding Octopussy (Walmart exclusive) as well as Living Daylights, Tomorrow Never Dies and A View to a Kill (all 3 Target exclusive). The ones I do not have (down to 4) are not listed on the websites and amazon and eBay both have them listed way above an acceptable price. Any word on re release dates??

I picked up each movie on day of release and most of the stores ran out of the exclusives with in a couple of days. I am sure they will get a restock but the stores in my area had no info but maybe when Skyfall hits theaters they will be restocked. The exclusive deal is only for a limited time. Most likely when Skyfall hits blu-ray the others will be readily available everywhere as well. Its a shame when stores don't stock exclusives better.
