    I don't usually pay over the odds for my dvd collection often waiting till titles appear in the bargain bins. The most I've spent is on the collectors editions of both tlotr titles(around £35).
    The most valuable titles in my collection are not necessarily the most valued though as some of the most classic films can be picked up for very little money these days:)

    Along with with perhaps Halloween 2 Disc R1, and the very limited edition Anchor Bay Army Of Darkness!!!

    Mine has to be Red Dwarf Series 1 DVD, it is signed by the 4 Main Cast Members :D

    Second would be my copy of Star Wars Episode 1 because Ray Park (Darth Maul) has signed Disc 1 in Gold Pen.

    I have a few deleted discs which seem to be worth money now (well, on ebay at least!).
    Killer-Criterion-cost about £25. Genuine copies on ebay seem to be going for over £100, crazy.
    Hard Boiled-Criterion
    Spinal Tap-Criterion
    Little Shop of Horror (recalled version with alternate ending)
    I have a copy Of Dead and Buried signed by Robert Englund (I would imagine it's worth much though)
    Wouldn't think of parting with them though.
    Don't even get me started about laserdiscs. The amount of money I spent on them.:mad:

    I reckon for most times watched the James Bond boxed set is the most expensive (£135) but best value for money (£6.50) per dvd I own. Hours of good old yarns!!

    What price an R1 fight club signed by Pitt, Norton and Bonham Carter? Girlfriend won it some time ago. Love the film and the signatures are a nice addition. Also have a copy of Wild Things signed by Denise Richards. Every DVD itself however is ordinary stuff.

    Akira tin ?

    I did have that Queen disc that only shipped with the first panasonic players but swapped it for another disc ( think it goes for about £80 on ebay these days)
