Saul writes from Australia:
I live near a Westfield mall, so I got to compare the prices at quite a few shops/stores. Several had it out on the 5th, but I ended up picking it up on the 6th. The winners were Sanity and Target, who had it at $29.95, other stores ranged up to $34.95.

I went shopping the other day and saw the DVD “on special” for $29.84 at my local Woolworths – Dem.

The DVDs are now all over stores in Singapore. Sales are brisk according to the sales people I talked to. DVDs are listed at $49.90, although most stores like CD Rama, Music Junction and Sembawang Music Centre are selling at $$44.90. Comes with a “Win a Trip to New Zealand Contest” and Music Junction is also giving away a large FOTR movie poster with each DVD. Also found out that there are FOTR VCD available! I only knew that there are VHS and DVD, didn’t hear anything about VCDs… although maybe that’s just me. VCDs are listed $19.90, most places selling for $16.90. Comes with FOTR and TTT trailers. Much cheaper but none of the featurettes in the DVD edition of course. I’m still waiting for November…!
