I have bought hundreds of cds, dvds, books and other stuff from Amazon and never gotten something that was not legit. And Amazon has the best return department in the world. So if you have a problem they will solve it.

3D Blu-rays sold on Amazon.com Marketplace are likely imported from another country or another store and marked up in price - same as ebay. I track down the source and buy direct.

Bestbuy used to have exclusives where amazon was not able to sell the disc for a period of time. Amazon may not have bothered to stock it later or they sold out.

If you get a burnt disc from Amazon Marketplace, my guess is a complaint to amazon would shut down that seller.

I usually use Amazon.co.uk for imports but in this rare instance there was a better price in the US, and I have actually had trouble with my last several orders from amazon uk. Shipments damaged, lost, wrong item sent. One order went wrong 3 times in a row, took over a month to get a broken product in hand (case shattered) and because it had already been replaced, I only had the option to return it. Return shipping costs more than both the item and the allowable shipping limit.

Amazon Canada has the option of printing a return label that is paid for by Amazon. I've never had to return to the UK. Is that not an option? What was their limit?

First-Class Mail International Retail Large Envelopes (Flats) price group 3 (UK). Blu-ray and cardboard envelope is about 5 oz. so $6.04 USD (4.83 GBP).

They only offer self-shipping with refunded charges, up to an allowance. I reused an Amazon disk mailer, which they considered a package, so the cost was $14.25. Amazon would cover a little under $11 in postage. The item cost about the same.

Another uk delivery today, 3 discs released from spindles in shipping. processed return for the most egregious already. They send them wrapped in paper, essentially, instead of sturdy containers. it starts out as cardboard, but all the corrugations are crushed in transit.

edit: 4 out of 8 had loose discs. 2 were the 3d discs, of course.

Local Big Lots! (Sterling, VA) had a lot of 3D blurays in the $5 bin this weekend. Unfortunately I had already gotten some of them from Amazon UK, but I still found 3 I needed and had a $5 off $15 purchase coupon in my email.

I didn't write down a list, but I remember these:

Sponge Bob Square Pants
Mega Mind
Kung Fu Panda
Star Trek Into Darkness
Hercules (Dwanye Johnson version)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Megan Fox version)
World War Z
Terminator Genisys

more I am probably forgetting

Briefly played a few chapters, and it is region free although listed as region B. Looks really good with pop outs and depth !! Will watch with family this weekend.

I want to order this, but the info under it:
"This will not play on most Blu-ray players sold in North America" slows me down.
What makes you think it will play on a Panasonic UB420?
Thanks in advance

From what I can tell, no one (first person) has actually tried it. Mostly hearsay. If I order them, I'll post back with test results. If anyone else does so, please post back as well.

Covid-19 effect on bluray sales?

I recently bought a refurbished Sony BDP S5200 region free player ($125 on Ebay, sold by 220 Electronics) so I've begun shopping for region B 3D blurays at Amazon.uk.

These tend to be cheaper than the region free discs. I bought a couple recently, but later, looking for more, I suddenly started seeing a whole lot of "currently unavailable" 3d bluray listings. I saw the same at the German Amazon site.

I'm thinking maybe some sellers in Europe using Amazon's sites have stopped selling used blurays because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is bad enough that the movie theaters have all closed, and now this!

I just checked since I recently started buying 3D blu rays that aren't available here in the states (which pretty much is all of them). You are correct. So many unavailable now. I couldn't get some of them anyway "sorry this title not available for international shipping" Was thinking the studios were cracking down. Which might be a dumb thought because a sale is a sale why would they care who bought it and where. But we are talking corporations here. Probably take forever to arrive anyway with everything grinding to a halt. Ordered some clothes a while ago that ended up on back order and just shipped out yesterday and it's going to take a week to arrive.

I noticed that back in February 23 on quite a few titles when I placed my first UK order for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. I was luckily able to get at the time as well the 15 disk Hobbit extended edition 3D box set. The Europeans are lucky as hell since the industry still considers 3D very popular over there but not here in the states. I was quite shocked they released Alita Battle Angel in 3D with the 4K disk (they dumped the DVD) here in the states. I picked up the steel book and the regular box to support that.

I've been checking the Amazon UK site periodically, and it looks like things are slowly starting to get back to normal. I don't know if they are now shipping stuff to the states, but 3D movies like "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker," that were listed as "currently unavailable" a couple of weeks ago, are now available again.

Got an email from amazonUK today stating: Enjoy the full Amazon experience again basically saying they are back to normal on things being available and being able to ship out in a normal time period.

Good to hear. I do like shopping at AmazonUK, a good source of 3D blurays. I have been feeling symptoms of withdrawal for the past couple of months.
