Region 1 DVDs


Active Member

Is there still a market for region 1 DVDs? I have a box full, but with some nice pieces.

Ideally I'd like to sell in bulk but don't think they worth much. I've attached a pic of some of them.

Is anyone interested in a bulk sale in the midlands, they are in Newark upon Trent for location.

Or would it be advised to eBay them?

I’ve got the same issue. Also have that copy of Halloween too!! Pretty much worthless and the masses probably don’t understand what a multi region DVD player is now.

Worthless unfortunately. You can't even give them away these days.

I literally travelled to the US a couple years ago with all my luggage allowance with Region 1 DVD's. A couple hundred discs, think I made around $150 and that was as store credit. A very dark day.

That said, I do remember dreaming about getting that Nightmare on Elm Street box set (no pun intended) back in the day!

Those titles are mainstream & pretty common, as well as only in SD.
Anyone willing to part with good money for a good physical title would probably already own these in HD/4K as well.

I usually do surprisingly well selling my unwanted discs on eBay. Admittedly most are Blu-ray now. The only caveat unless they are a rare special edition or lean toward the more independent, cult or arty section of the market they are worthless. I tried selling Ghostbusters once. In the end I gave up and threw it away. Same with Nolan's Batman trilogy. Everyone has these movies, multiple times.

Wow that is sad indeed, I don't want to think how much I spent on them. How times have changed. Might be worth a shot at eBay or buy a multi region player and keep them.

It’s very sad but they are probably only good for coasters. It’s the downside of collecting. Apart from a window in steelbooks there’s never been a resale value in physical media. For R1 it’s zero I’d guess, especially for a DVD
