Note that this is the first slimmed down version they are releasing, Director's Cut, etc. will probably follow shortly

And then the non-rated extended box set with special edition commentary by the cast...then of course there will be the 3d release in a few years...I don't care what they are saying....they don't want people to think a 3d release is coming so they buy what is released now.....I like movies, but I'm really getting bitter about the MPAA and the Movie Studios.

I don't get why they don't release in 3D? They could charge $150 a copy since people are buying 3D equipment with nothing to watch....

The "deluxe" version will be released in November. At that same time, there will be a theatrical re-release that includes about 15-20 minutes of additional footage. You can then count on a BR/DVD release with that version in the Spring. The 3D version doesn't have a release date yet but I wouldn't be in such a rush for it. 3D TV still has to play out with consumer adoption and there's no set standard for it yet. I would rather wait. Until then, all you'll get will be a scaled-down version of the 3D film that will be a pale imitation of the theatrical version. Home-based 3D viewing just isn't there.

So it comes down to this: if you care about the extras and have the patience, wait until November. If you don't care or don't mind buying two versions, get this one now. Or you can do what I'm planning on doing which is to buy this version now, then gifting it when the extended version comes out.

Those humans should have gave the Na'vi some beads for the rocks they were after. Its worked before. Would have saved us some movie time.

I can't wait until people realize buying 3D tv's for home is the worst purchase they ever made.

@daveyoung: If I am not mistaken 3-d tvs also make non 3-d movies and tv shows 3-d. The quality is just poorer than it is with a real 3-d movie.

@highone: I don't see why it would be the worst purchase ever? I think the worst would have to be that popcorn machine people buy and just let sit in the corner because no one eats that much pop corn or wants to wait that long.

The big stand kind like youd see at a carnival.

thanks for this! Saves me a trip to the store

Don't forget the $2.99 shipping. Plus local sales tax because odds are there is a local Target store in your community.

Combined with their advertised sale in-store for $22 and you pay sales tax, that makes this pretty much the exact same deal as in-store.

But if it saves you a trip (doesn't save the delivery guy a trip to your mailbox/house, so the eco-friendliness of that choice is a wash), then go for it.

@dravack: 3D TVs do not "upscale" standard 2D video into 3D. There is technology to do that (a client of mine produces the hardware that is used) but it is part of the post-production process and not in the TV unit itself. Besides, you have several years before 3D TV becomes mainstream to really warrant waiting for that possible release. It hasn't even been decided yet if the 3D Blu-ray release is going to support 3D TVs or if it'll just be the more traditional polarized version that requires the cheap glasses. For now, you can pretty much count on getting the same level of 3D-"ness" as Hanna Montana in Concert and Shark Boy and Lava Girl.

As for quality, there's also the question of whether a 3D Blu-Ray release will fit on a standard BR disc and whether a 3D "capable" player will be required.

@highone: Really, I got a 50 inch Plasma 1080P 3D a blue Ray player3D and the glasses kit for $2100.
IF you buy a good 1080p and Blue Ray player it will cost almost that much, so I do not see where it is NOT WORTH IT!!!
Sorry you don't have the money to buy the next generation TV,Blue Ray yet but maybe someday buddy!!!!

Amazon has it for the same price and you don't pay tax on Amazon.
Also if you buy $25 from "THEM", then it's also free shipping.

@daveyoung: ummm I'm pretty sure they do.. not to aruge with you since you seem to know what yourtalking about.. I might just misunderstand what your saying but check this out. And I quote "Plus, you can convert much of the 2D content you currently watch into 3D." First paragraph here last sentence. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Electronics+Promotions/regularCat:pcmcat205100050005/pcmcat205100050005.c?id=pcmcat205100050005

@phantomcanes Good to see.. I swore when I posted this deal amazon was still at 22$ like everyone else. Because I was looking to buy it and yeah.. I dunno though.

@mike808 it might not be super eco friendly but better one man making a trip to 100 houses instead of 100 people making a trip to one store.. and in some cases like mine closest target is over 70 miles away. But I'm just price matching it to best buy and getting shipped for free ^^ gotta love BB

@dravack: two more things.. first I would like to state I am in no way an expert on tvs nor do I know anything really about 3-d tvs apart from what I've seen on webpages like what I just posted.. secondly it use to be 25$ at amazon they just dropped the price. I assume to stay competitive with target. Or maybe the price from the studio or whatever just dropped no clue.

@phantomcanes: What are you worried about tax for? You just blew $2100 to upgrade your home theater for literally no reason.

@donkeykongjr: I don't know depending on what he had before he might of had a reason... Even if he had a 1080p lcd or plasma or whatever tv... My mother has a LED one with 240 Hz refresh rate and the picture is beautiful.. Mind you it's not 3-d ready but it costs near to what he paid. I'd upgrade if I wasn't trying to be frugal till I graduate.

Edit:
But I agree no need to worry about $1.40 or whatever taxes on 20$ would be in your state when you've spent so much for a tv and surround system.

@devs429: Ment to post this ages ago but forgot after reading everyone's comments.. I'm sorry. But your welcome! I'm just glad i could be of assistance to someone. Anywho have a great time with a good movie. Allons-y!

@da5id said, "@phantomcanes: Relax."

He can't. If he lies down he can't watch his 3D TV, ya know.

If you had to sit up straight and be centered in front of the TV all the time, you'd be uptight too. ;-P

@anotherhiggins: thats a really good point i never thought of... but they dont have to always be in 3-d mode do they? so i guess if I got one in a few years i could still relax sometimes? lol

Amazon also dropped their price down to the same & shipping is free if you add to the order to push it over $25.

@phantomcanes: You hit the nail on the head there "buddy". I'd rather have a GOOD 1080p tv and a GOOD blu ray player than poor 3D tv and player. Anyone else wondering? Read the C-net reviews on the Samsung 3D products, I guarantee my 52" Sammy LCD 240hz and PS3 KILLS 3D quality for at least another full year if not longer. It'll be good one day, just not this day. Spend your money a nice 2D Samsung LED folks if you're upgrading or if you just have to have it you can pick up a slim 65" 3D Mitsu DLP for about 1200 or with the player and glasses kit for 1500.
