    Same, I hope they last until lunchtime, as that's the fastest I'll be able to get to a blockbuster,

    A very poor auction -- no description and it looks at first like you're paying $1000 for a DVD + $100 shipping!

    Thanks, John. Anyone pick one up yet? There's more than one per store, correct? I think I'll have to go stop by my local Blockbuster...

    I had to go to two stores--each store got three, but all three arrived broken at the first store I went to. The second store had all three. Sir Boomme said the Blockbuster in his area got six. You have to buy the movie to get the globe. I bought the movie, but then discovered that I bought the single-disc version. I'm going back tomorrow to see if I can swap it out for the two-disc edition.

    Thanks again, John. If only I can corral my kids into the car (it's their spring break)... It's like herding cats these days.

    The Blockbuster I was at only had the single-disc edition, and that's all they carried. He said it would be the same for the other stores in the area as they all buy the same stuff. I'm not sure I believe him, but I bought it anyway.

    There were four globes at my location, and mine was fine.

    Congratulations, Geoff.

    I'll let you all know tomorrow if I was successful in getting a two-disc version.

    I picked up two.
    My Blockbuster received 4 globes, but only the single disc versions.

    For once, the time delay of being on the West Coast actually helped. Just after 10am, I was only the second customer and the first to buy The Mist. They only had the single disc version - based on comments in this thread, I'm thinking the two-disc set has not yet been released.

    Our local store had 4 globes. I bought 3 movies, each with a snowglobe.

    Our real camera is not here, so here are lousy cellphone versions:

    So are the non-U.S. collectors here getting any of these globes anywhere?

    Brice, you're a collector of all things King promo. Did you pick one up today?

    I'll be going to work this afternoon, so I'll be in a different town in a couple hours. I can stop by that city's Blockbuster to see if they have any globes, if anyone who doesn't have access already is interested.

    well... i got one movie/1 globe... though they had all six still.
    the movie is the single disc.... that's all blockbuster has for sell. the 2 disc version with the stephen king interview is out.... but it is only available for rental at this time, i'm sure that ove a period of time as the rentals go down, the surplus rental tapes will be offered for sell as "previously previewed" (aka. used) versions

    BTW....my opinion... the globes are a bit cheesy. not really worth the 23.00 movie price unless you were going to buy the movie anyways.
    after opening the box i was a bit disappointed in the quality....seems they could have found a better artist to do the interior globe "sculpture" and i use that term with reservations. ( i know i could have done a hell of a lot better.)

    I'm not even in this loop! I didnt know that this was happening, I love
    snow globes, and wanted to buy this film anyway, I wonder if I could get to
    Gainesville, I should call the Blockbuster first....oh boy I tell the truth, I am
    just not with it when it comes to "being in the know". Oh well, maybe its not too late. I hope I can get one. *goes to make the call*

    Ahhhhh the funny thing about collecting is that everyone's tastes run differently. I read through this thread and say to myself "they paid good money for THAT?" Promo items generally just don't float my boat, but for you all that just means is one less competitor.

    Glad you all are excited about your items. THAT FEELING I can relate to!

    Make that two less competitors out there!

    While promtional items do indeed float my boat, I am only interested in US BOOK promotional items.

    I too can relate to feeling excited about a new purchase, so congrats and enjoy!

    I agree. I usually only go after book promotional items too, but these globes just "struck my fancy" so I had to have one. The only other movie promos I have is that I have all four colors of dreamcatchers sent out for the movie of Dreamcatcher.
