Star Wars: The Padawan Menace DVD/Blu-Ray

Posted by ,
The Padawan Menace

This 21 minute cartoon has been released in Europe today. I can't comment on the cartoon yet, although I am looking forward to watching it, but I can tell you that the Blu-Ray version includes an exclusive Young Han Solo minifig.

In the UK this is exclusively available from Tesco, priced at £8. You can order it from Tesco Entertainment, although I suspect it'll also be available in larger stores.

I know this is old news if you're in the USA, where it's been out a while and is a Wal-Mart exclusive. (thanks for the correction)

Actually I've found it at Wal-Mart, as well. And I really enjoyed it when I saw it. But here in America, they have it priced really high! They have it at around $25!

Great marketing idea. Stick the biggest spoiler of all to the front of the packaging.
Coming soon, the special edition of 'The Sixth Sense' with free glow-in-the-dark Bruce Willis Ghost and the official 'Planet of the Apes' Statue of Liberty playset...

The animation is hilarious, though it's a lot to pay for a short like this.

I saw the dvd version in the shelves at Intertoys here in The Netherlands last saturday. It's going for € 9,99.

Edit: the dvd version didn't have the Han Solo minifig.

I think it's a Walmart exclusive, Huw, but I don't know, seeing that I don't live in the U.S.

Have seen it in Devizes, Wiltshire, Tesco today. #1 in their DVD chart at £5 for the non blu-ray version. Then I looked at the running time and saw 21 minutes, and thought whoa, that is short!!!

This would suggest it is going to be in a lot of Tesco stores....

got my copy in the post today, just finished watching it, very funny, the extras are excellent too, minifigure is a nice touch and almost makes it worth £8 (but not quite)

was on a kids tv channel on sky in uk bout 10 days ago, funny but wouldnt pay for it even with the limited edition stubby figure

The video may only be ~21 minutes, but it also collects a number of other extras on the disc so I think it's worth the price.

They've got it in Tesco Clearwater, Finglas, Dublin 11. Both the Bluray and the DVD.

I watched it on CN then got this as a present. Extremely funny and creative. The extras include other Lego.com shorts and comics. The minifig is a nice addition but be warned, it is the cheaper CM type plastic.

I got it at walmart and I dont know why, but they had priced it at 13$!!!!!! I bought it and was able to get the han solo figure which is very nice. The dvd also came with "the fastest, funniest, story" 1 and 2. It was one of those "Walmart" moments.

It is a great video, but the figure is a bit lacklustre in my opinion, it is pretty much just a rehash of other figure parts. It is worth purchasing though I think. I know they have it in Tesco Extra Eastbourne, if anyone is interested.

I think they now have it in all Tescos, even my puny little branch had both DVD and BD, at number 1 in their chart.

OOO! I saw this at wal-mart for $13.00US Pretty good deal i thought. It includes Blu-ray and DVD

By in Poland,

I think this news is about UK and not about Europe in general. I bought my DVD exactly one month ago in a Tesco in Poland. There was no BD unfortunately...

By in New Zealand,

@Huw: It's in NZ, but I don't think the minifigure is included. :O(

By in Ireland,

I'm so happy that this is available in Ireland, just picked up the blu-ray+figure in my local Tesco for €10. :)

By in United States,

$25USD.......FOR A 21 MINUTE MOVIE?!?!!?!? I bought a new Blu-Ray Movie that was 2.5+ hours long for $10 at Wal-mart!

....Granted it was "2001: A Space Odyssey" :P

^That's crazy. So the minifig is like $20, then?

By in Netherlands,

I was in Poland last week and they just sell the DVD including the minifigure for 29.95 Polish Zloty. That is only € 6.85. I found DVDs both at Tesco and Empic. Although the DVD is just 21 minutes it is worth while especially if you also consider the bonus materials.
