Roll up, roll up - get your cut-price SF goodies right here...
Welcome to the weekly SFX bargain hunt! Once again we’ve wandered the interweb looking for all manner of sci-fi bargains for you to blow all your hard-earned cash on.
Next up, Thunderbirds are go with this DVD Collection of the classic puppet series featuring all 32 episodes of the show. Yours for only £14.99 from Play.
Last week we brought you An American Werewolf In London at a bargain price £3.99 from Amazon and this week we’re bringing you another chance to see the gorgeous Jenny Agutter in action, which is never a bad thing. Miss Agutter and the release of In Time in cinemas this week gives us the perfect opportunity to mention another film in a similar dying-young vein: the excellent sci-fi classic Logan’s Run , available from Amazon for just £4.29 .
Still hankering for scares even after Halloween? How about some classic horror? This Hammer Horror Collection could be just the thing. The set features 21 sci-fi and horror classics from the '60s and '70s for £26.69 from Play. That’s, like, £1.20 a film or something. Bargain!
Last week we brought you a Batman Begins/The Dark Knight double pack on Blu-ray and this week we’re evening the balance for the DVD dinosaurs out there with news that Asda are selling the same (less the shiny Blu-ray bits of course) Nolan Batman double-pack on DVD for £7 in store. Also to be grabbed at yoru local Asda is season one of The Vampire Dairies for £14, if you like that sort of thing.
HMV also have a big sale on, with over 1300 DVDs from £2.99 and over 1000 Blu-rays from £7.49, so there’s bound to be something for the sci-fi fan in that lot. HMV also have a load of box sets from £9.99 included in this sale. With over 2000 items on sale we haven’t had time to hunt through and find specific things but we’ll endeavour to highlight some sci-fi bargains hidden among the rom-coms and pointless remakes over the next few weeks for you.
Random bargain of the week this week is this shiny Millennium Falcon Haynes Manual for half the RRP at £7.50 . With over 120 pages of full colour cut-aways and technical diagrams this is just the thing for the spice smugglers out there wanting to keep their ships running smoothly.
As ever, if anyone out there spots a sci-fi bargain they want to share then please pop over to the forum and mention it in the relevant thread. This thread is for bargain films and this one is for TV bargains. Keep your eyes peeled for great offers for your fellow geek and maybe your find will be in the bargain list next time...
