The only way I would buy THAT box is if it had the print of The Shining inside it!

It also looks very like the transit cases we used in BT for sending computer magnetic tapes through the post (Datapost). Those were black though very similar otherwise.

Gawd some of these things.

That Blu Ray etc collection for $1m, when you divide 1M by the 17356 odd you get $57.61 each for 2nd hand dvds and blu rays etc.

Its just nuts, but that empty film box is a cracker !!! too.

Best Mark.

Look at this bargain from a 'great' seller. His feedback says it all really.

I wonder what this lot will sell for?
The ad says "I DONT HAVE TIME TO CHECK THESE SO SELLING IN A JOBLOT AS IS "

How hard is it to look quickly for a leader with title, or even to mount this up to see title? Something is odd here...

People asking ridiculous prices above for middle-ranking 35mm titles and then Bond on 35mm at a very sensible price:

And how much would that be on super 8? or even 16?
[Confused]

In fact, compare that James bond 35mm to this rather sad 400ft cut down on super 8 at £100 [Eek!]

That auction above this will cost me to send to New Zealand ...
age: £25.50 Expedited Delivery to New Zealand | See details

Item location:
Ashford, Kent, United Kingdom.

Not that I’m going to bid but there has to be a cheaper postage to N.Z. for such a low starting price!

This is what has been stopping me bidding on things recently!

--------------------
Cheers from me in New Zealand :-)

seems many have gone this route clinton! The reason I also have immensely slowed down purchasing and am careful as well in purchases....Shipping kills it everytime it seems!
