Warner’s animated Justice Society: World War II had a couple. Best Buy offered the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition with a pack-in Flash figurine for $33.99. Meanwhile, with the direct-to-video movie being widely released on Blu-ray and 4K formats, Walmart was the only retailer with the DVD edition, at $14.96.

Best Buy offered Steelbooks of three catalog titles arriving on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.

One was a Steelbook of Universal’s Shrek: 20th Anniversary Edition, at $22.99.
