“Stranger Things” Season 1 Getting VHS-Style Blu-ray Release at Target!

Yes, the rumors have been officially confirmed.

Last week, the above photos began circulating around the net, suggesting that Netflix was finally going to be bringing the first season of “Stranger Things” to DVD/Blu-ray… in retro-style, VHS-inspired packaging! We were holding off on reporting until we got official word, which we’ve just received tonight.

With Season 2 arriving on October 27, Target and Netflix have partnered for a line of fun and exclusive products. With exclusive apparel, accessories and housewares inspired by the show coming to Target on October 15, these products kick off a unique partnership to create epic, exclusive items inspired by Netflix-original shows.

In addition to lounge-wear, mugs, glass tumblers and toys, Target will exclusively carry a Blu Ray/DVD set of Season 1 on October 17, including retro-inspired packaging.

Just seems right, doesn’t it?

    yo is that a demogorgon costume ? cus if so I’m so fuckin buying that shit.

    • Pretty sure its an action figure 🙂

      • zombie84_41

        ya i seen that after the fact. Oh well guess i gotta figure out how to make my own.

    “what would barb do” seriously? I do not get the Barb obsession people seem to have. She is a tragic, yet entirely forgettable character that really did nothing in her limited screen time.

    • The Night King

      It’s almost as bad as all the guys who dressed up as Eleven and Winona Ryder last Halloween.

    • Jay Bennett

      Literally 3 scenes with 2 minutes screentime and died. Like damn shes gone let it die lol

    • Not that forgettable it would seem!

    • Travis_Bickle

      That’s the joke….

      Barb was awesome. she was a sweet, likable character who was a very good friend (to Nancy who was only interested in fucking Steve). she was also i think very relatable to most people (hence her popularity). we all knew a Barb (or we were a Barb) growing up.

    • Sky Commander

      “What would barb do?” Easy, she’d die.

    • Yep, so forgettable that she easily became one of the most iconic characters in the series. She’s popular because of the tragedy of her character and because of how relatable she is. Many people feel like Barb. And clearly the creators placed importance on her, as her death had clear impact on the plot.

        HopelessSavage, exactly! well said! 🙂

    the blu-ray isn’t listed on Target’s site yet. i’m very curious to know what bonus features (if any) will be included in the release.

  • MadCows

    Finally confirmed!

  • jsmoltz29

    I have to have those mugs!

  • Sodding Target. We don’t have a Target over here ;_;

  • Ronny Svang

    It’s pronounced Tarjay.

  • Alanmac

    That’s a pretty damn cool packaging idea. Love how the edges are worn.

  • Josh Evans

    Oh man do I want this so hard!

  • Tony Harley

    but are there any specials features and commentaries?

  • American Atheist

    I wonder if the discs actually click into something. I don’t like sliding discs in and out of a cardboard sleeve.

  • Nia Snacks

    Okay that’s actually pretty dope.

  • Kat Alex

    Oh shit, that’s actually amazing.

  • Jeans Wilder

    Laser disk would be more appropriate. I feel like someone is as likely to have one of those players as they would a vhs player. Very cool though

    • Tan Shearer

      Not really. VHS was way more popular than Laserdisc ever was. VHS was pretty much the standard home and renting format. Laserdisc was high end only serious film lovers and rich people had those back then. Plus most people had square TVs and didn’t like Laserdisc doing widescreen because of the black bars.

      • Jeans Wilder

        True, just wishful thinking on my part as a collector

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    Stranger Things is always doing the coolest stuff. Too bad the show itself isn’t half as interesting as the promotional work they do.

    • Pikachu

      I think season2 will be better now that they got the intro out of the way and there will probably be less winking at the 80s

  • Connor Salvatore

    let me guess, only Region 1 blu ray. would love to own it too, but i am from Europe which means Region 2. Hate that stupid region lock.

  • Richard Canipe

    looks so cool!
