Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope Lands on DVD

You know you all want a Joss Whedon action figure.

by RL Shaffer

June 13, 2012

Just ahead of this year's San Diego Comic-Con, the Morgan Spurlock documentary, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope, will arrive on DVD July 10, 2012.

The film will be released in three versions -- a standard DVD and two special edition sets featuring one-of-a-kind figurines, including a Joss Whedon action figure! Suggested retail for the standard DVD is $19.99. The two special edition sets will have a suggested retail price of $29.99.

From the official press release, "The two Collector's Editions will contain the DVD alongside action figures of Stan Lee and Harry Knowles or Joss Whedon and Spurlock. This is the first time mega-director Whedon has been immortalized into action figure status... which will no doubt delight fans everywhere. The Whedon/Spurlock special editions will be sold exclusively at Toys "R" Us stores nationwide. The products are part of a unique retail opportunity with Toys "R" Us and will be sold alongside other action items dedicated to Comic-Con 2012. The Lee/Knowles editions will be available at select stores and at online retailers. A third combo-pack from HeroClix with all four figures and the DVD will also be available in July at game stores nationwide ($29.99 SRP)."

The DVD will feature a widescreen presentation with 5.1 Dolby Digital audio. Extras include: Behind-the-Scenes Featurette, Deleted Scenes, Talent Interviews and Trailer. Fans will also be able to purchase the DVD and Collector's Editions at Comic-Con International in San Diego (July 12-15). The film is not yet available for pre-order on Amazon, but you can rent the film for $5.99 through Amazon Instant Video.

Look for a review of Comic-Con Episode IV in July. We'll keep you updated on any news or additional specs for this release as usual.
