I know I may get some backlash from this comment but I really think it is time for Best Buy Canada to start putting a limit of 2-3 per person for exclusive items. While this do the trick probably not individuals will probably use different email addresses and accounts but they need to do something.
    And how many won’t be dented or slashed lol!

    For one, it doesn't matter if you put a limit or not unfortunately, hoarders, scalpers, whatever term you want to use will get around it.
    Some smaller boutique labels like Vinegar Syndrome, Ronin Flix, Mondo Macabro, etc... have a staff of 2 or 3 people to handle everything and even though they put limits, there's still hoarders listing multiples for sale.

    In this case, I'm fairly sure that Best Buy simply put a small quantity available up for grabs, take into consideration individuals who order 3 or 4 each because of the high level of probability for damaged goods, and it doesn't take long to deplete inventory.

    My guess is that more will show up at some point, so keep an eye out.

    Amen to that @jacques1400 seeing how the same thing happened to the steelbooks Thor 1 & 2 and Iron Man 1-3 while they did sell out in two days instead of one day. I think we all will be keeping an eye out; because the same thing happened before were we saw more stock being offered for online preorder when the release day for these steelbooks came closer. But on another note I guess we can also expect the same to occur when they start offering the last five movies from the Disney Pixar 4K UHD Combo Steelbook Re-releases. So everybody keep your eyes out and post it as soon as possible!!!

    Thanks. They are currently all showing Sold Out - did you see Back-order or Pre-order availability when you posted? I'm hoping to pick up GotG as this is the only non-steelbook I have of this bunch.

    @Wavey Dave

    If you read the rest of the thread, you'll see that they were sold out by the time they showed up.
    BB US has plenty to go around if that's any comfort.

    @Vecna,

    Unfortunately, it seems like quite a few people missed out myself included. I don't want to sound repetitive but Best Buy Canada must of only of got 50 in stock and scalpers must of got those.

    Can anybody confirm this but I was looking through Hi-def Ninja just now and someone known Shadow of Light states he was able to obtain 3 copies each of Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange. I am happy for them but this leaves me wondering what the devil is going on at Best Buy Canada; it figures the time that I leave the house is the time they put this online and again with limited supplies.

    Phantom stock. No dice I give up. They don’t really want my $100 for GOTG & Antman.

    No phantom stock @leprekon I was lucky enough to get an online order through and there is a charge on my credit card; the question is will they cancel it at the last moment. I am not going to celebrate till I actually get them in my hands.

    I was trying when it was posted on HDN but wasn’t working. No biggie.
