Here’s the ten bargains which caught our eye this week…
First up this week we have Will Smith almost getting out-acted by a dog while wandering round a post apocalypse New York in I Am Legend . This premium edition Blu-ray comes with a digital copy and is available from Amazon for just £10 .
We’re heading over to Mother’s Basement for our next find. This lovely Superman “Lightening” T-shirt will cost you a super £9.99 . Up, up and save away…
Our big DVD/Blu-ray box-set bargain pick this week is the complete Heroes collection. You can pick up all four seasons of the show from Sendit for just £29.99 . Amazon has the Bu-ray version of the set for the lower price of £28 . Whichever format you pick that’s less than a tenner per season. Although if you’d prefer you can just grab season one alone on DVD for the George Lucas-pleasing price of £11.38 . It’s the best of the lot after all.
Everyone loves a big mug. And Play has a great big 900ml sized Doctor Who -themed one on sale. The mug, featuring a classic Who logo, is available here and will cost you a mere £3.89 . Perfect for your morning coffee. Or tea. Or custard.
Our pre-order bargain of the week is Canada’s big new time travel show Continuum . The show’s promising first season is available to buy from Monday the 28th of January and can be ordered from Zavvi for £14.95 . There’s no sign of a UK Blu-ray release as of yet though.
Ever wondered where Boba Fett, the Star Wars universe’s most fearsome bounty hunter, kept all the cash he got from chasing down the scum of the galaxy? He kept it all in this lovely Slave 1-shaped money bank. And you can too. It’s available from Forbidden Planet for £9.99 .
Retro sci-fi disco shenanigans next with season one of Buck Rogers In The 25th Century . You can catch up with Twiki, Buck and the jumpsuit-clad Wilma Deering for £10.95 . The box-set, featuring 24 episodes, can be found on the Zavvi website. You can also find the show’s not quite as good season 2 for just £8.45 if you like.
Supernatural goings on in Russia next with Timur Bekmambetov’s big screen adaptations of Sergei Lukyanenko’s “Watch” fantasy books. Both Night Watch and Day Watch are available in a Blu-ray combo from Amazon for £9.50 . That’s not bad at all. Thanks to forumer Silverfox 67 for this suggestion.
You can be just like your favourite Doctor with this range of costume-themed Doctor Who T-shirts. All 11 incarnations of the errant Time Lord are represented and the shirts will cost you between £15.99 and £16.99 each. Head over to Forbidden Planet and check them all out.
It’s back to Amazon and steelbooks for our last pick this week. The Blade Runner premier steelbook is available for £11 . The set includes both a Blu-ray and digital copy of Ridley Scott’s 2007 “Final Cut” of his iconic film. You can find it on Amazon here .
