Seems to me the guy at BB read it wrong, probably isn't the starter kit, sounds like the single rechargeable price and they will have four single pairs in stock tomorrow? Come on 199.99, 2 pairs of ASG and includes Avatar? I'm saying mistake unless this is part of the December 1st release plan? Unless Panasonic leaked the starter kits early on purpose considering the BB by me until this past Saturday had three sets "For Sale" for at least the last two and a half weeks, people buy them up with Panasonic knowing they would pop up on eBay almost immediately and at a ridiculously crazy price. so now they come from behind sneak attack style @199.99 this may just work on Panasonic's behalf if the price is actually 199.99 for the Set and if that is your plan?

Here in Canada the msrp for panasonics new glasses is $99, so it makes sense the bundle would be double that. I picked up 4 pairs, 1 small and 3 mediums for $88 each. Overall a much better feel than the original glasses but still they need work.

Sounds like a mistake to me. Just a pair of glasses alone costs more than $200.

No he brought the box out and scanned it and I was right there.


Hoping it's not a mistake because I will gladly fork over $200 and sell those glasses easy on Amazon

Here's the link at Best Buy:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Panasoni...&skuId=1534391



It's live for sale at Amazon now. At least you save sales tax.

http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-TY-E...d=PMOF39IPMI3O


Given the idiotic exclusivity length, what's to stop customers from buying the kit at BB, watching the movie, and then returning the kit? Sounds like a free rental to me. Of course, then BB's inventory will be out in the hands of renters rather than true buyers of the kit.


This kind'a backfires on Cameron and Panasonic.

I'm sure the disc is wrapped separately from the glasses in the kit. So if the shrink wrap on the disc is opened, BB won't accept it back.

My question about this kit is regarding the glasses. Are they the large or medium glasses. I have seen it listed as both.

Yup $399 today.


Like I said yesterday the item was not listed as being available to sell yesterday so obviously the system was not showing the correct price when he scanned it.
