Hmmm..... what do you consider your most treasured DVDs (or for that fact, video tapes) in your collection?

On the DVD side, they are:

1. Independence Day - This two DVD-set, besides being out of print (OOP), has the autographs of the two special effects people on the cover. AFAIK, only about a dozen of these DVDs exist, and they were a giveaway at another DVD site.

2. Spirit Of Wonder-Miss China's Ring - This was a limited run by AnimEigo. Another out-of-print DVD, only a few thousand were produced, and AnimEigo has since lost the video rights.

VHS side:

1. Dilbert: Pilot Episode - This was a screener tape that was sent out to UPN affiliates about a month prior to the show premiering. It's a work-in-progress tape.

2. Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - Autographed and personalized by Trace Beaulieu, who was Dr. Clayton Forester and the voice of Crow T. Robot. I also own the DVD of the movie (one of the first in my collection) which is now OOP.

3. Star Trek: The Motion Picture - Autographed by Stephen Collins on June 7, 1998.

My most treasured DVD was Crimson Tide. After watching Beauty and the Beast and the special features, it is now the one.

I also have Pocahontas that my brother got for me in Korea, so it has a Korean and English track. All of the menus are written in Korean, so my daughter thinks it is the absolute coolest.

That's more than what I paid for it from Animeigo.

Animeigo has basically lost the rights to this film, so it was a limited run. Half.com is someone else selling the DVD.

You should see the prices at Amazon marketplace for DVDs such as MST3K: The Movie, This Island Earth, Fahrenheit 451, and Quantum Leap: Pilot Movie. Due to a dispute with Universal, who owns the films, and Image Entertainment, who obtained the license to release those films for a limited time on DVD, those films have been OOP for at least two years now.

Mine are Die Hard- The Five Star Collectors Edition and We Were Soldiars. That will change as if I can ever find it for an affirtable price (less the $50, which seems to be the going rate on Ebay), I'm going to get Robocop - Criterion Collection, which includes the X rated scences that had be cut out.

I just wanted to point out that if someone was interested, they can find a copy for sale.

Possibly. I do loan out my DVDs to good friends, but they have to be easily replacable. Spirit Of Wonder: Miss China's Ring and some other DVDs in my collection are not easily replacable. Another DVD that I have is the first DVD from "Total Movie" magazine. That DVD has the Star Wars spoof TROOPS. That is one of the most sought-after DVDs, and again, one of the rarest.

E-bay and half.com do not qualify as easily replacable. :( However, I found two copies of the 2-disc Abyss at a local Best Buy, which will end up being Christmas presents. That DVD set is, once again, OOP, and replaced with one-disc editions.

Unfortunately Lucas has already said that the "original" will never be on DVD, only the Special Edition. So hold onto those LD versions since they and the VHS are all that remain of the better version of Star Wars...
