The Guild season 3 DVD available to buy on Amazon. Also includes the "Do You Want To Date My Avatar" music video (which has 7.7 million views on Youtube, btw). Somebody give this girl a TV show deal, already.

Weird, it's not on Amazon.ca yet. Nor Amazon.co.uk, but the Season 1 & 2 set shows up on both. Someone's probably already done this, but I'll e-mail Felicia just in case. Them's untapped markets.

The Amazon.co.uk search wasn't completely fruitless, aside from the first Guild set it brought up Athletic Model Guild-Revisited [VHS]...hmmm...Nah, 24.99 pounds plus shipping from the UK to Canada is a little much, even for vintage porn, and especially if it's on tape.

I'm trying to be no-disc/no-waste for entertainment lately (aside from, y'know, the electricity required), but I bought the Season 1/2 set at Xmas and I'll buy this 'cause it's easier to lend/share/gently evangelize. And I wanna watch Season 3 and the music video on a TV finally (too lazy to get the hook-ups for PC-to-television viewing and the Wii's internet doesn't always stream video all that well, or at least it used to not).
Hmm, it looks like this is a general-release version too. It's from the New Video people. I was expecting an Amazon exclusive first.

Yay! Maybe I'll try HMV tomorrow.
Good plan, HMV sometimes has stuff at their cheapest during initial release week.
Can't answer for Felicia, but I think it's USA only at the moment, and only online. Pretty obviously I can imagine that changin' over time.

I'm torn between just getting this now and waiting for the retail release (which according to their website is slated for later in the spring). I probably won't wait.

But FYI, the Amazon release is a (region free) two disc DVD-R set. The retail release will be one disc with the same content.

No! No TV deal! I want her as a regular on The Big Bang Theory... :D
Yeah, they have more details on the roll-out plans on the Knights of the Guild podcast. This initial Amazon release is done through Amazon's DVD-on-demand service, CreateSpace. The full retail version (through New Video) will come out late spring.

If seasons 1 & 2 are an indication, I believe it's the full retail version that typically gets stocked in the non-US Amazon sites.

They also have a review of the special features. They sounds pretty cool.
I prefer Felicia not being on TV to her being on a crappy TV show that I would feel compelled to watch because she is on it. Pumped for S3 on DVD. BTW, if anyone is interested in getting their friends into the Guild, seasons 1 and 2 are available on instant view on Netflix. It is how I got into it and then my friends.
I just got a friend into it by forcing him to Insta-Netflix it. I still need to buy seasons 1 and 2...

(Off-topic: I just got Final Fantasy Origins! Now I have every main series Final Fantasy game.)
I'd rather she not get a TV deal, but get the next season of the Guild renewed with a higher budget so we can have longer episodes :)
Thanks for the info, RayHill. Just as an addition, they wrote me back with the following:

"Thanks for writing - we're working on a UK release and the Canadian release should be in May or thereabouts.

-The Guild management"
