This week AMC’s The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season is available on Blu-ray Disc in a 5-Disc set from Anchor Bay, as well as a 5-Disc DVD set. But along with the common Blu-ray and DVD editions, several retailers are offering exclusive limited editions of the Blu-ray release, including Best Buy and Walmart. Below, we break them down for you to help you decide which version to buy.
The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season 5-Disc Blu-ray Set
The common Blu-ray edition of The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season comes with five Blu-ray Discs formatted in 1080p with Dolby Digital TrueHD 7.1 channel surround sound, Digital HD copies via UltraViolet, and optional audio commentaries. There’s also one Blu-ray Disc (formatted in 1080i) with deleted scenes and several featurette collections such as “The Making of The Walking Dead” and “Inside The Walking Dead.” The edition retails for $79.99 but is currently available for $29.99 from Amazon. The DVD edition (list priced at $69.99) is available for $24.99.
The Walking Dead: Season 4 Limited Edition with Tree Walker Case
This limited edition of The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season comes with a “tree walker” case from McFarlane Toys. What makes the case even more intriguing is that the head and arm move when you insert or remove the Blu-ray Discs from the case. The 5-Disc set is the same Blu-ray common edition we told you about above, only with the added bonus of a true collector’s special packaging. The limited edition carries a list price of $129, but Amazon and Walmart are selling it for $79.99, while Target is selling the set for $84.99.
Walmart Exclusive: The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season w/Prison Key
Walmart has got their own exclusive The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season that features an Alex Ross illustration on the slip cover, with an embedded West Georgia Correctional Facility Prison Key. The “Prison Key” exclusive includes the 5-Disc Blu-ray set mentioned above, along with extra bonus material on the fifth disc and Digital HD copies via UltraViolet. The Exclusive Walmart edition of The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season is list-priced at $89.99, but Walmart is currently selling it for $49.96. The “Prison Key Edition” is also available on DVD (for $39.96).
Best Buy: The Walking Dead: Season 4 w/Lenticular package
Best Buy is doing its usual exclusive packaging, this time with a special Lenticular slip cover featuring Rick Grimes, giving the 5-Disc set a different look than the Blu-ray package seen above. Best Buy’s list price for the Blu-ray edition of The Walking Dead: Season 4 is $54.99, but they have it on sale for $29.99.
Target Exclusive: The Walking Dead Season 4 Steelbook Blu-ray
Target has their own exclusive edition of the The Walking Dead: Season 4 on Blu-ray Disc that is only available in-stor. The edition comes in a special Steelbook package with 5 Blu-ray Discs included. The edition is list-priced at $34.99 but is on sale for $29.99. Thanks for the update Josh!
Note: When doing a search on
Amazon or Best Buy search for “The Walking Dead: Season 4” not “The Walking Dead: The Complete Fourth Season” as this search string does not seem to pull up the correct results. This may also be true for other retailers, some have titled the release differently from the actual package art. Prices indicated are as of article publish date.
Thanks Josh for that! We’ll update the article.
Target also has a steel book for $34.99….
