Sci-Fi Bargains Of The Week
Ladies and Gentlemen… It’s The SFX Friday bargains round-up. It’s time to find the bargains. It’s time to quote the price. It’s time to meet the bargains on the bargains round-up tonight. It’s time get you wallets. It’s time to grab that purse. It’s time to raise the curtain on the bargains round-up tonight.
Hmmm. That didn’t really scan… On with the bargains…
First up we have an offer from Play, which has a two Blu-rays for £14 deal running. We spotted Twelve Monkeys, Tremors and 9 amongst others. Why not check it out for yourself…
Hard to believe that the fantastic but short-lived Joss Whedon show Firefly is almost ten years old… For those that still don’t own a copy, Amazon have it on DVD for £11.97.
A blast from the past next with Gerry Anderson’s nightmare-inducing ‘80s puppet show Terrahawks. You can get the complete series, that’s all 39 episodes, on DVD for the bargaintastic price of £12.97, if you don’t mind the sleepless nights.
How about some remake shenanigans with the 2009 rehash (or possibly just hash) of the The Prisoner? You can pick it up on Blu-ray for just £8.97. If you’d prefer your shenanigans to be of the original ’60s psychedelic variety then that can be yours on DVD for £21.97.
Staying with freaky TV, David Lynch’s bat’s-arse crazy TV show Twin Peaks is available on a Definitive Gold Box Edition DVD boxed set for £19.99 from Play. Watch while drinking a damned fine cup of coffee.
Avengers Assemble might not be out to buy until September but Amazon is already advertising a big Avengers boxed set including the Avengers Assemble film and all the previous set-up films in one bumper set. You can pre-order the box on DVD for £29.97 or alternatively the Blu-ray can be yours for £38.97.
The third film in The Mummy series, Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor ,was spotted in Amazon’s “Deals Of The Week” for the cheap-as-chips price of £2.97 on DVD. You can also grab the film on Blu-ray for £5.87 if you fancy.
MTV’s cult animated series Æon Flux is available on DVD for £9.97, or if you’d prefer the Charlize Theron starring live action effort, it’s on DVD for just £3.67. Strangely enough if you buy the film along with Lara Croft: Tomb Raider in this two-DVD set it’s actually cheaper at only £2.99. Go figure.
John C Reilly stars in the live-action adaptation of Darren Shan’s vampire saga Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, which can be yours on Blu-ray for £6.97. The film is also on DVD for £4.20.
We have a Doctor Who adventure next: “The Dæmons”, from the Pertwee era, is on DVD for just £9.99.
In this week’s Play “Deals Of The Week” we found four seasons of the classic sci-fi anthology show The Twilight Zone. They had season one for £19.19, season two for £19.99, season three for £17.99 and season four for £9.09. All on Blu-ray.
A quick wander round Asda this week turned up a selection of bargs. We spotted The Wolfman, The Corpse Bride, Contact, Mars Attacks and Interview With The Vampire all on Blu-ray and all for £5 each. On the DVD front Asda still has Iron Sky, Darkest Hour and Chronicle all for £10 each. We also saw Ghost Rider 2 for £11 and for anyone that wants to catch up on Nolan’s past Batman films before the new one comes out there’s a DVD box with Batman Begins and The Dark Knight for just £9.
Morrison’s had an array of DVDs for £7 each, including Thor, Conan the Barbarian, Captain America, X-Men – First Class, Cowboys versus Aliens and Super 8.
From the forum this week Midnighter told us Tesco has a selection of DVDs on offer for £5 each or on a buy one get one free. There’s a full list of available titles here, go check it out. Midnighter also spotted Pegg and Frost’s alien road trip movie Paul down to £3 on DVD in Asda.
To start off this week’s random suggestions we have a True Blood T-shirt from Firebox. This Bottle Logo tee can be yours for £8.49 in large or the slightly more expensive £9.34 for medium.
Next we have something for the Harry Potter fans, or rather the Hermione fans. This Hermione Granger artefact box, packed with prop replicas and keepsakes from the film, is selling for £23.99.
A random suggestion from the forum’s Lee Grice next; Lee told us that Alt.Home is having a sale on items including movie monster coasters and a range of pillowcases. Click through here to take a peek at what’s on offer.
Something for the Doctor Who chefs out there. This Dalek apron is available from Play for £14.99.
We have a superhero with a difference next with Souper. He’s a hero and he’s a spoon. Make soup night a little more bizarre with this spoon headed action figure. He’s yours for £5.84.
Finally for this week we have a mug for you. This lovely R2D2 themed Star Wars mug is available from Play for £7.99.
As ever, if you find anything from this week’s selection cheaper anywhere else please mention it in the comments section below. We want as many bargains ideas for our readers as we can get. And remember; if anyone out there spots a sci-fi bargain they want to share over the coming week then please click on over to the forum and mention it in the relevant thread. This thread is for bargain films and this one is for TV bargains and finally this thread is for any random bargain you might find. Keep your eyes peeled for great offers for your fellow geek and maybe your find will be in the bargain list next time.
