    Can any one recomend me some decent limited editions for my collection. id prefer some proper limited editions such as numbered versions from japan etc. quite into sci fi and action.
    Thinking of ordering kill bill japan region 2 box. is this worth the extra cost over the normal version of this film?

    "Brotherhood" that Pioneer mentions is listed on most R3 sites as Taegukgi.

    On Yesasia there are 5 different DVD versions available. I've got this one. Yesasia is a little more expensive in certain cases than some other R3 e-tailers, but you don't get collared by customs charges, or at least out of all of the orders that I've placed with them I have yet to be captured.

    You could also add:

    The Returner R2 - Japanese Sci Fi film
    Oldboy Copper tin box SE - R3 Korean
    Ku Fu Hustle SE - R3 Chinese
    House of kung Fu SE - R3 Chinese
    Ghost in the Shell SE - R2 Japanese (if you like Anime)

    missed these out on my last post as had to walk across to the collection and have a look:)

    Also, anyone know why when I post a URL the address is always blanked out by *****?

    Cheers
