dollhouse s1 dvd Exclusive Comic Con Dollhouse DVD [Updated]

If you’re both a Dollhouse fan and find yourself headed to Comic-Con, you might be able to take advantage of an interesting offer.

5,000 special order DVD packages have been set aside for Comic-Con attendees.

Each DVD package comes with a letter that is individually numbered from the man himself, Joss Whedon.

This season 1 DVD package has every episode that aired plus 2 episodes that you didn’t see on TV.

That would be the original pilot and an extra episode entitled “Epitath One.”

Here’s the trick:  You can preorder your Comic-Con edition Dollhouse season 1 DVD package from www.foxstore.com/dollhousecomiccon, and then when you arrive at the San Diego International Comic-Con 2009, all you will need is picture ID OR you can indicate at order checkout who will be designated to pick up your DVD package for you.

The going price over on the Comic-Con special order site is DVD: $49.98, Blu-ray: $69.99.

Have at gang!

Oh!  PS:  Don’t forget that the episode, “Epitath One” will be shown at Comic-Con on Friday the 24th in Ballroom 20.  The panel is a 2 hour panel that starts at 4 p.m..  Oh lord, just look for the tent in the middle of the ballroom, I’m going to be there all day long I think!


UPDATE 7/8/09:  Our readers have alerted us to an issue with the foxstore link for the DVD.

People are reporting that the connection to order the DVD’s is not a secure connection, but rather an open connection to the ordering site over the web.

Neither does the phone number provided at the link above allow you to call in and order the product.

This leads us to believe that the information you provide for the order goes over the open web in an unsecure fashion, possibly leaving your information vulnerable to outside sources.

Personally, I would never provide my information to a website that does not provide a secure SSL connection.

We thought you should be aware and if we hear differently, we will apprise you of it.

Thanks goes out to Screen Rant reader scififan for alerting us to the situation.

  1. too bad I can’t afford to go to san diego just for that… and before you ask, I’m originally from Australia.

  2. Why would you tell me this? I can’t possibly make it to Comic-Con.

    Actually… Would who ever is going, from Screen Rant, be willing to buy it on my behalf? I’ll pay you back. :P


  4. The foxstore site the you order the DVD/Blu-Ray from is not secure! It doesn’t use SSL (https) and there is no way to order via phone or Fax. Any credit card information you send is completely in the clear and wide open for interception. Tech support seems to be unconcerned. You may want to avoid until/if they come to their senses and implement this most basic security feature.

  5. BUT GANG, they do indicate if you know someone who is going, you can designate them…

    ( no, i’m not offering, just saying.)

    scififan – I thought I saw a phone number somewhere thereabouts on the site… dig around a little…

    So this number is useless for ordering?:

    “Ordering Problems? Call 888-223-4369, we are actively addressing all issues.”

    If it’s not a secure site, I’d definitely have issues with it… good observation scififan.

  6. I called the number and they said they could not accept orders via the phone or via fax. I asked to speak to a supervisor and I did get a call back within half an hour. However, she said that her network techs told her that they were using SSL on their backend servers. Of course, they HAVE to use SSL to communicate with the credit card processing companies to verify your credit card information. They are still not securing the submission of information from the client (us) and their (fox) web site. Here is a link regarding the difference between http and https


  7. I got another call from Fox. They said that the site would go to https when you submit. I therefore entered correct looking, but fictitious data. It validated the credit card number as declined, but the URL never changed to https. I think the lady I have been speaking to has been fed a line by the network staff that is not true. Does anyone else think this is a good place to submit your full name, email, postal address, credit card number, expiration date, credit card security code, and phone number?

  8. If you go to their foxstore.com and try to buy anything else on their site, you get a normal add to basket and then proceed to checkout which gives a URL like this:


    Compare that to this


    which is the page you enter all of your credit card information on!

    I think the network people just got lazy and didn’t set this up properly, after all it’s only 5000 copies….

  9. Is there any content difference between this SE and the one your pre-order from amazon? shiny numbered packaging isn’t much of a selling point to me.

  10. @Bruce

    No, that sounded like an offer to me. ;)

    I’m a nerd, I don’t have any friends. lol

  11. Psyko: Stop it!

    Aren’t we all?

  12. Latest update:

    I continue to correspond with foxshop@mailca.custhelp.com with no luck so far. I’m getting the standard reply that their website is secure. I notice that since yesterday afternoon that they have only sold 4 DVD sets and no Blu-Ray sets. Current available count DVD – 2073 and Blu-Ray – 2214.

  13. Have you tried explaining to them how different folks are having way different results than their expectations?

    I’m presuming you have valiantly tried to make them see that light. They are poorly programmed dolls!

    Awesome update Sciffan. Thanks.

  14. Haha, I’m just playing around.

    Are you actually going to Comic Con? Color me jealous, if you are.

  15. Psyko,
    Yep. Start coloring!

  16. Darn. I thought we were just joking around here. Have fun!

    Now, where did I put those green markers…
