Official blu-ray images are available already for download, containing
the full set of released software in Debian, both for stable releases
and once every week (testing releases). However, to save on disk and
bandwidth we don't make the ISO images available for http
download. Instead, you'll need to use jigdo to get them [1].

I don't know of many people selling BD editions of Debian yet - have
you checked the vendor list [2] for people near you?
