Random_Hobbit brought this bit of news into Barliman’s a short while ago: “My dad and I just went to Best Buy, and as we were walking in, there was an announcement that LOTR had just sold out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” “…some guy had JUST bought the last copy in front of us.” Upon further query to the distraught hobbit, it seems that their local store had indeed sold out of all copies of the extended edition, both regular and collector’s versions! So if you are in the Los Angeles area, you may have to do a bit of hunting for a copy. Good Luck!
