My friend have a relative in France. He imported a lot of stuff to sell in Thailand. I didn't ask where specifically in France did his relatives bought it, but that's how I got this and Avaitor. I bought it for 10,500 Baht.

But yes, it is also available on eBay as well.

Well usually I buy Premium Box because I like the film so much or the box looks to nice to resist. Usually I have watched another copy of the movie like I saw Schindler's List from the Korean Digipak but never open the disc inside the R1 Gift Set...

But for other cases, I've watched over 80% of all my dvds, and keep going because there would be waste if I don't watch it eh. Sometimes it's weird that you buy imported dvd as much as dvd in your country crazy...?!?!

Btw, it's very hard to stop once you start, I'm getting the Spider-Man Wooden box from France the end of this month...waste of money eh, but hey it's surely nice 'Wink
BoBoi..i just wonder..how many of all the great sets you have Happy, you have actually watched ????

Where the discs come out..if you understood what I meant.

I use a cutter to cut the plastic wrap.

This way I prevent the outer box from destroying therefore preserving the carton
Don't worry, I've watched them all! lol

edit: like this:

nice idea..i asked couse I read somewhere here that some people buy 2 sets..one they open and watch and the second one they just put on display..which is sick if you ask me....
But I have to start using your idea of cuting just the fron to ge the discks out.

Just found a "hack" on the internet. Quite easy actually, I've changed it to region-0 so now I can play anything!

And to think, I was going to get rid of this DVD player for a newer Toshiba.. pfft!

Now I can buy whatever the hell I want!
Weird, I was just searching region-free players and I think I alraedy have one! Philips DVP 642/37. Not sure if it is region-free though - I've never tried it!

Is there a site I can pick this stuff up at? Maybe I'd need a region-free DVD player???

Here, it's harder to find a non multi-region player 'Wink

Well, that's probably says it all...


1st image - The Matrix Attaché case, The Phantom of the Opera L/E (R3) and Dances with Wolves, Korean version.
2nd image - Fantastic 4(R3), Stargate (movie)(R2), Ray(R1), Alexander (R3) Highlander - Immortal Edition (R1), The Aviator (R3)
3rd image - Cinderella, Aladdin, The Lion King, and a complete Walt Disney Treasures set.

You need a region-free DVD player, you can get them from lots of places such as Amazon.

To order the DVDs, well there's lots of retailers. You need to decide which country you want to order from then find out the retailer. For example, South Korean titles can be purchased from http://www.dvdfromkorea.com and others.

£ukasz D calm down lol...

My stuff are mixed of R1 US; R2 UK, UK;R3 Thai, Hong Kong and Korea...

You'll be surprise how beautiful thaidvds are...no thai letters on the cover, how patriotic is that haha!!

But Premium stuff comes from elsewhere eh, like i, Robot from UK, Hero from Japan, Neo Bust from US etc etc...

To answer your question, I bought all this stuff because of both great editions (awesome package) and for some I do like that movie as well...

The problems are most of the movie that I like, they don't make great package out of them...I guess no one is gonna do a premium box set of al pacino's character in Scent Of A Woman...I'm waiting for the Japanese to do something with Almost Famous...my fav of all time...and still waiting haha

ofcourse there's some guy I know call jub, he has x50 collectable dvds than me...i'll link you to his website next time...that guy is simply has a dvd library...too awesome!!!
wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....in the name of all that is holly !!!!...what a great set you have Happy.
U are one big DVD freak Happy.....and I have to say I realy realy am jealous.....beautiful collection.....
here in Poland we don't get such great Limited Editions..in fact I can't recall any Limited Edition DVD issued in Poland..we just get "garbage" Editions....for ex. the 2 Disk SE of Wlak The Line..in R1 great Edition in digi-pack real collectros stuff for $20..the same edition in Poland is availible in bull-s**t amaray with no booklet just 2 disk in s**ti package for $27..we didn't get booklet for Gladiator 3Disk SE although all other countrys got it.............so you understand my frustration......but non the less..great stuff you have....i just wonder:>..do you buy all that stuff just for the great Editions (as a collector) or  you realy like those movies  that much ????
P.S. I would love to chat or ask you soem questions so, if I can ask pleas give me your mail so I could contact u..Happy greatings Happy

next up, a lot of japanese premium set like WOTW are coming, also my friends found me the rare-Shawshank Memorial Box Set
I thinking of getting Walk the Line as well, I already have the 2 Disc Collector's Edition R1. Jewel box? Is that like a digipak?
Not too many oft hose are limited though. Got my R3 Walk the Line set today. Really nice fold out jewel case with a booklet in the middle. Fits into a sort of guitar-shaped slipcase. Well nice.

Forgot my other limited editions. Total Recall tin, which isn't very practical. Also got the Hellraiser puzzle box, which is terrible. That's what put me off of Anchor Bay's Phantasm sphere (just in case it was as bad). You almost have to break the discs to get them off of the holders. Very much a case of 'looks nice in pictures'.

Argh.  I just checked both the Silence and Robocop Criterion discs used and they're not that expensive... I could've sworn they were astronomical in terms of price... must've been thinking of another title.

Commentary from Jonathan Demme, Anthony Hopkins, Jodie Foster, Ted Tally and FBI Agent John Douglas. Only downside is that it's non-anamorphic.

Um, I nearly ordered the R3 Batman Ltd Edition, but in the end I went for the normal two-discer. I own the ltd, numbered Manhunter set from Anchor Bay, just ordered the limited R3 release of Walk the Line and V for Vendetta (although I doubt they;re really that limited). Also have the two-disc Korean Sympathy for Lady V, but that is still on general sale even though it was meant to be limited.

I have the Criterion Silence of the Lambs and RoboCop, both of which are OOP so limited. Got the Korean three-discer of Shaolin Soccer. A lot of stuff purports to be limited, but isn't...
I want SCARFACE!!! It is so NICE!!! :D
