    Play.com Playtrade

    Listed as new. Must be the most expensive HD-DVD I've bought but there's something strangely attractive about it. Not just the fact I love the film.

    Be quick.

    I think that seller has a store so he's got more than 1 (dunno if it would show as more than 1 though on Play's system).

    No harm in trying! [​IMG]

    One on Amazon UK now for less than £25

    That's the cheapest I've seen it there I think I've seen it fetch much more on eBay.co.uk Always worth checking Amazon.fr (one there for 16 euro). Review of the French disc here I've seen the French disc go for much cheaper. Also check out Priceminister Also check the other Amazons/eBays as I've seen German, Belgian (over-labelled) and Dutch releases. One here on eBay.

    As I said, that guy who had it for £9.14 looks like some sort of store so it's worth keeping an eye on that link.

    I'm sure VivendiUniversal have the Bluray ready to go in all territories this summer anyway.

    I got my UK disc from Play. Looking at the return address looks like it came from a wholesaler as it was new and sealed. Return address was Reading, RG6 9EL.

    I've scanned the sleeve and uploaded it. See my post here

    Couple of other sleeves there too. If you have any other country's sleeve it would be cool to see them too.

    wait and see. I do not get why it could not be worth hundreds. Be patient and wait 40 to 50 years. even Christie might be interested to trade them, lol:thumbsup:.

    I also ordered this from play last week and it didn't arrive, it has been showing as packing since I made the order and they have also took my money, anyone else having this problem? I sent of an email after showing as packing for days and had no reply.

    Same for me, packing. I should have not been so explicit in making some declarations about this particular hd dvd before receiving it. If they know about this thread they are now thinking to keep all the copies they can and make themself millionairs in the near future.:devil:
