Hello good day and welcome to this week’s SFX Friday bargains round-up.
First off we have an item which we saw in every shop and on every website we visited this week. The Raimi Spider-Man trilogy Blu-ray box-set. Amazon has it for £8.97 , but it can also be found at Asda, Zavvi , Morrison’s and Tesco and they all have it on sale for under a tenner. We think they all may have ordered a few too many copies.
Next we have a few things from Amazon’s “Deals Of The Week.” First a limited edition steel box-set of Doctor Who series five which Amazon are selling for £19.97 on DVD .
Over on Play.com we found Kate Beckinsale in all her PVC glory with the Underworld Quadrilogy DVD boxed set which is available for £17.99 .
Our own Ian Berriman found season two of Heroes on Blu-ray for just £6.99 from Sendit.
Next up we have a few of Brian Fuller’s quirky American TV shows for you. First is season one of the grim reaper comedy drama Dead Like Me which is available on DVD for £10.59 .
On our trip round the supermarkets we managed to take in Asda, Morrison’s and Tesco this week. In Tesco we found The Iron Giant, Inception, Sucker Punch and an Ultimate Avengers animated collection for £5 each on DVD and Demolition Man and Sphere on DVD for £3 each.
In Morrison’s we spotted Mars Attacks, Zombieland, Daredevil, The Terminator and the Nick Cage starring Wicker Man remake on DVD for £3 each. We also found The Matrix and the two-disc Blade Runner Final Cut set on DVD for £5 each.
Over in Asda there was Ghostbusters one and two in a DVD set for £5 , Jumanji and Despicable Me for £3 each and The Incredibles for £5 . We also found Hugo and Dream House for £7 each. On the TV DVD front we spotted Teen Wolf season one for £16.97 . Although if the original comedy movie is more to your taste, Amazon has a double DVD featuring both films for £4.55 .
In Asda’s Blu-ray aisle we saw Battle LA for £5 and Super 8 and Superman Returns for £8 each. You can still pick up Batman Begins/The Dark Knight two-set from Asda as well. The sets are £10 for the DVD and £14.97 for the Triple play Blu-ray, which is cheaper then we saw them anywhere else.
From the forum this week we had Wyngarde telling us about the Doctor Who Revisitations boxed sets. Amazon have volume one , volume two and volume three all selling for £18.97 each. Wyngarde also spotted Speed Racer on Blu-Ray for £3.95 , if you like that sort of thing.

Meanwhile Kevinj, Quinny and Nighttrain were all talking about the range of cheap comic character T-shirts available from Asda. The range includes Batman, Spider Man, Captain America and Captain Britain T-Shirts all for between £7 and £4 each. Pop in and check ’em out.
A little something for those Chinese take-away nights next, as long as the items in question don’t put you off your food first. Play have a selection of Alien themed chopsticks. We spotted Xenomorph , Chestburster and Facehugger designs for just £8.99 each.
Something for the younger sci-fi fan next; this Yoda bath robe is on sale at £11.99 from Firebox. Perfect for the Padawan in your life.
