In 2014, the folks at Warner Home Video released DVDs of Mayberry R.F.D. - The Complete 1st Season
into stores, priced at $29.99 SRP. It eventually went out of print, though, and now used copies can easily go for over $100 each...while "new, still wrapped" copies can easily go for 3 times that much (or more!). It's rare, and in high demand. But now you don't have to pay through the nose for it any more.
Today the Warner Archive Collection announced that it will re-release the title as an MOD (manufacture on demand) item this coming February 27th
. It's expected to be identical in terms of on-disc contents, and it even has the same package art (see an image of the cover, below). This is the first of three seasons, and if it sells well enough then perhaps the Warner Archive will see their way clear to release MOD sets of the second and third season, too? We're not sure, but the possibility is always there!
Price for the new MOD release of The Complete 1st Season
is $34.99 SRP, which is five dollars more than the original in-store release. Inflation? We don't know. But it's sure a better price than the current after-market costs, right? You can pre-order your copy right away from the WBshop.com online studio store, using this button link:
