HOME MEDIA: Best Buy Exclusive Batman Dark Knight Returns Part 1 Blu-ray Figure

I'm not the biggest Best Buy fan in the world, too many instances of bad customer service has driven me to become a card carrying Amazon Prime member. However, every now and then I am suckered back into the store by gimmicks like the exclusives that are occasionally offered on Blu-ray. This past Tuesday was one of said occasions.

I picked up Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1 at Best Buy, because it came with an exclusive Batman figure. I know, it sounds pretty lame written like that, but I'm sure there are some of you reading this saying "yep, I was there at 10am to get mine." Which you really have to; these things sell out quick partially due to demand,...and Best Buy seems to only stock less than a dozen per location.

Anyway, the figure is about two inches tall and, while pretty cool looking (check out the picture), just kinda stands there. Literally, this could be mistaken for something that comes with a Happy Meal. But, I'm pretty pleased with this purchase.

Funny. That this 2 inch piece of plastic has gotten me to not only step foot back into a Best Buy, but actually spend money. Bravo, Best Buy. Ya got my loot once again.

Did you buy into this? Why? Leave a comment.
