    surely this is taking the mickey. These are now selling on Ebay for around £30-£60. Are people that desperate for a tin.:D

    I cant complain cos I got one for nothing from a mate who owns a DVD shop opposite us.;)

    Groundy,

    I just visited the website shown, and I have to say, the cases look amazing. One question, however: what are they made of? Plastic, wood, metal, cardboard, or what?

    I can't see anything on the site, that actually states what they are made of, and the price leads me to think that they may look gorgeous, but aren't too sturdy. Maybe you can confirm or deny this for me, please?

    Thanks, in advance,

    Pooch

    Groundy,

    How old is this guy?

    I clicked your link and on the opening page it says:

    How can he make those cases so well when he's only 4 years old? :confused:

    On the contrary, the cases are extremely sturdy. Thetop and bottom is made of polished aluminum, the sides are made of plastic - about 3-4mm thick. The plastic is covered with a thin sheet of laser engraved metal that makes up the pictures. You would never know it was plastic though as the whole thing looks and feels metallic.

    The guy is very nice to deal with but only makes orders when asked, i.e., doesn't hold much stock. You might have to wait two or three weeks for delivery. I got the Die Hard and Alien cases and had them with two weeks. Payment via PayPal.
