Our friends over at ComicMix posted this bit of info and with all the work getting the show together, we’re only now able to get to it. In an unprecedented move, Fox Home Video is releasing a special advanced limited edition DVD or Blu-Ray of the first season of Dollhouse. The odd part, and the main reason we’re bringing this info to you, is that the DVD is a Comic-Con exclusive.
They are only making 5000 of these limited editions (2500 of each format) with each featuring a personal letter to fans from Whedon, exclusive Comic-Con packaging, and a first look at the mysterious unaired episode “Epitaph One”. The DVD is available for pre-order at the Fox website right now through July 20 — or until they sell out. Although, a recent check of the site shows there’s over 2000 copies of each version still available, so I think you’ll be okay.
A limited quantity will also be available for purchase during Comic-Con at the Fox Booth (#1429). In person pick-up for pre-ordered copies will begin at the Fox Booth on Wednesday, July 22 during Comic-Con “Preview Night.” Photo ID is required or purchasers must designate at checkout someone who will pick-up the DVD on their behalf.
The Dollhouse Season One Comic-Con Blu-ray Disc will run you $69.99 and the DVD costs $49.98. Regular versions of Dollhouse Season One on Blu-ray and DVD will be available everywhere July 28.
Confused? Well don’t worry because after the jump, Joss Whedon himself will explain it all to you.
In a studio first, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is offering fans of Joss Whedon’s mysterious cult series Dollhouse a chance to purchase a special advanced limited edition Blu-ray or DVD of the first season, exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con International.
Here’s an introductory video from Joss, spelling it all out:
