Proposition was a BRILLIANT movie, Immortal was "eh, ok" but then again, I am not a big Japanese anime style story fan. Havent seen Sarah Connor Chronicles yet, prolly gonna get around to watching it this weekend.

I caught the end of Breed one night on TC (maybe the Sci-fi channel, i can't remember...didn't look too good.)

Brings my total to 26 steelbooks.
Couldn't resist that cheap steel, huh, dizzy? I know what you mean. I wasn't planning on picking up any of these except The Proposition, but getting a new release steelbook for the price of a used, possibly banged up one is just too tempting. That cover for Terminator pretty much dared me not to buy it.

And, I never said she was nekkid, I just said there would probably be some showing of skin here and there. I have no idea, but for $10 and some change, I'll check it out and let you know.

if I buy ANYTHING off ebay, I ask the seller to email me a pic with a white slip of paper with that day's date on it so I can see what I am getting, if they won't do it, I bid on it/buy it.

I had a kickass week of steelbooks nearly doubled my collection

Saturday I was just browsing with friends at Saturday Matinee and they had 1 Beowulf steelbook left so I sprang for it, saw it it theaters and it wasn't bad

Tuesday I blind bought the Terminator Sarah Connor Chronic from Best Buy watched the first few episodes and it's not terrible

Friday I got The Proposition which is a great movie & Immortal blind buy they were only $10 at Target so a very good deal I'd say

And just this morning I ordered The Omen used from Spun.com for $10 fingers crossed it's not fucked up

Once The Omen gets here I'll post a picture of all 11 steelbooks I own

I am interested in the following steelbooks:

Indianna Jones Collection, FF4, Batman Begins, V for Vendetta, Superman Returns, Ong-Bak, Scarey Movie Quadrilogy, Oceans 13, Spicerman 3.... if any of these are not R1, please let me know, shoot me a PM with a price and maybe we can work something out. I don't expect you're selling them dirt cheap, but I'm not really looking for high Ebay style prices tho. If you are looking to get rid of them, and are willing to cut a deal on buying a bunch of them, I am def interestd.

I keep an eye out for them. I usually on there often. Just trying to old off on some wants due to lack of funds haha. Ive seen a bunch on ebay so I'll most likely get it from there once I can afford it (its sad when I can't afford something for $30)

Never mind on the currency thing. I was going to order that Smokin Aces steelbook but the shipping brought it up to around 40 bucks so I couldn't bring myself to....especially since it would only be for the case and not the disc inside.

the problem is the steelbooks I'd kill for no matter how much patience I have will never go lower because they just don't come up that often. I'd love and X3 and a V for Vendetta.

hows this for a story to make you cringe and have night terrors:

I play WoW (World of Warcraft). A guildie of mine worked at Futureshop at the time and told me "theres this kick ass V for Vendetta case out now, want me to grab ya one?" I said no, not knowing she was talkin about a steelbook. I kick myself in the ass every time I see one on ebay now, just thinkin I coulda had one at cost.

yeah the futureshop v will never get low... i "settled" for the korean v steelbook... i rather like the korean language on there... looks interesting... much moreso than the french on the futureshop edition... and i think i prefer the simple red v on black background to the busy cover on the canadian... mine came with poster cards inside, did the futureshop version come with them too?

in other words your fellow schmoes weren't willing to pay the rape prices you wanted for them and you weren't willing to be reasonable with other collectors, so instead you are going to be a pock mark on ebay instead.

While your at it presell an iron man steelbook for $40 with the wrong cover art and over inflated shipping because honestly ebay just doesn't have enough leeches and vultures***

***disclaimer for the most part this is sarcasm but not all. Honestly if you can make a buck and sell to fellow collectors instead of trying to milk every last penny out of the situation why wouldn't you. With a few exceptions like V for Vendetta most of your collection doesn't fetch too far over retail and I am sure the schmoes here weren't sending you insulting offers, like me for example I would have offered you $30 for Bee Movie I doubt you will get much more than that on ebay.

30 is a little offensive for V for Vendetta much less 13 I mean cmon what idiot thinks they are going to get V for $13, I would have offered you at least $50 for V. Not sure on Saw and Smoking Aces since they are non Region 1's, I know my Clerks X Region 2 cost me $30 simply because the dollar is worthless right now and I lost almost all of that money in the pound to dollar conversion as it was like only 15 pounds. Indy collection doesn't seem to bad but then again I think they retail for more than $30 so maybe it is bad.
