You might remember that a week ago yesterday we passed along word
that Stranger Things - Season 1: Collector's Edition
is coming out as a Blu-ray Disc/DVD Combo Set, exclusively at Target stores, this coming Tuesday, October 17th
While neither Netflix (who owns the show's DVD and BD rights, unlike most other programs shown on the streaming service) nor Target have issued any sort of press release about it, Target's weekly circular for this coming Sunday has leaked out in advance, and an ad inside that circular verifies that Stranger Things - Season 1: Collector's Edition
is indeed coming out on that date, and for the price we reported: $24.99 (note that prices can vary on merchandise from location to location within the Target chain; your store's price may possibly vary!).
What's even more interesting about that ad withing Target's circular for next week is that it shows an image of the "VHS case" found inside the outer packaging...a case which holds the 4 discs (two Blu-ray and two DVD) and sits inside the outer cover that's marked "VHS hi-fi." This inner package is a bit of nostalgia for older home video enthusiasts, like myself. There's even a golden circular sticker with text that read, "please be kind & rewind"! That's cool.
The title is not listed at Target.com as of this writing, and we're not certain if it's going to be...this may be an in-store exclusive, for all we know. If you need to have a Target employee look up the item, the UPC code for this is 191764203360, and Target's DPCI code (their internal inventory number) for it is 058-23-1746. Here's a look at those images of the ad in next week's Target weekly circular, and a closer look at the "beauty shot" of the package, inside and out:
