Anyone know where Amazon has stopped taking preorders on this? I've never seen a Blu-ray go "out of stock" before releasing...

Best Buy has it for $44, but yeah I think it sold out on here :(
Right before I was going to buy it. Hopefully it comes by before it's release!

I seriously doubt that it's sold out. This happens frequently on Amazon. I don't know why, but at some point after beng announced for preorder, titles are then made unavailable for ordering. Then, usually, about ten days prior to the actual release date, the title becomes available again. I strongly suspect that on, or around, June 1st the BD and the DVD will again be set up for preorders.

I suspect that it has something to do with HBO also selling the title on their own website.

Bad news...The allocation for Amazon has indeed been sold out via preorders. I was told this directly by a supervisor in customer service. I just ordered a copy from Walmart for $39.95 with free shipping. It will arrive 3 to 6 days after the release date, but it will arrive. I had to do the same thing for the Falling Skies: Season 3 Blu-Ray...which was only $24.95. It's not huge savings, but it is small comfort.

WB distributes some of the HBO shows and movies and WB is currently in contract negotiations with Amazon. As soon as they are finalized, you should see pre-orders available again (provided the contract(s) are finalized before the release date).

I pre-ordered this as soon as it was announced and my order is still active. So it does appear that they've sold out their allotment and are working on getting more.

It seems to me that Amazon is trying to push people to adopt buying the Digital version for 14.99 instead of allowing you to pre-order the physical copy.

I had pre-ordered but cancelled it this morning as soon as I saw the Target Store flyer in Sunday's paper listing the Blu-Ray set for $29.99.

Funny thing is that Amazon's listing now says "Sign up to be notified when released"!

Thanks for the tip on Target's add Yellowsub. I'll have to wait for Target to open on Tuesday morning so I can get one.

That just dropped the price to 29.99 to match Target as well.

Looks like the price drop is not for those who pre-ordered the set months ago, mine has shipped at $39.96 and no sign of any credit

Call Amazon customer service within the next seven days and you can get that ten bucks back! Same with any purchase from Amazon (as in sold by Amazon not a third party or just shipped by Amazon). I saw that it dropped by ten today and was annoyed too so I called because hey ya never know... and that's how I found out about this policy.
