    I've just popped down in my lunch break and come back with a few things that fit gaps in my collection:

    Bubba-ho-tep £5.99
    Spiderman 2 £5.99
    Independance Day £2.99
    2046 £5.99
    Box set of 3 Zatoichi films £5.99

    LOL - and I've just this second realised that the Zatoichi set didn't go through the till - so I got it all for £20.96

    Pleased with that, then.

    I went in. Found Bad Girls season 6 for £9.99 (usually about £35.)

    Also saw someone pick up the complete Planet Of The Apes TV Series for £7.99 (usually £25) but couldn't find any other copies

    Didn't see much else I didn't already have, but was worthwhile going in.

    Cheers.

    I was rather disapointed with the selection

    The only decent thing that they had was Alias season 2 for £14.99

    Edit: Let me rephrase that - the only decent thing they had that i wanted or didnt already have.... :D

    Apparently they had a ton of CDs and DVDs for £1.99 each, my friend who happened to be in the right place at the right time got a shed load of stuff including box sets... the feeding frenzy was soon over though and there's nothing too stellar left...PJ :(

    MVC was the only place I ever came across a Jackie Chan box set, they had a series of 4 of them, each had 3 films. They didn't really have a name, just the "Jackie Chan collection" I think. Sort of yellow and black colour scheme (not like Kill Bill though). The first 2 sets had a picture of Jackie's face split across the spines of the boxes, the 3rd and 4th didn't I think. (Strangely.)

    Anyway, I bought the first 2 sets ages ago but don't have the 3rd and 4th... SO if you're in an MVC and you see them I'm very interested...!
