The REALLY BIG list of limited editions

Here is a fairly comprehensive list of limited edition dvds that I made by scouring stores and online resources, although I am sure there are titles that I missed. If you know of any, please let me know. I have not included any anime titles, as I have a list of those in the forum at www.animeondvd.com . Also, I didn't include any region free or multi-region discs that originated outside of the USA or Canada. I am not sure if some box sets with exclusive content are limited or not, and some are listed, while others might be missing. For the most part, this list doesn't include titles where the only limited part is a slipcover or exclusive item (especially at Best Buy) as there are other lists showing those.

(Last updated on June 05th, 2005)

Anchor Bay:

Yes, it was a Best Buy exclusive limited to 5,000 copies I believe.


Thanks for compiling such a list

Right off the top of my head I can think another music title that you don't have listed: Tool - Salival.

It is a collection of music videos and also includes a CD. This is one that I was always upset I didn't pick up when it was available.

I will post more if I think of or find any others.

Not sure if the following would include anything not already listed but perhaps it might be useful.

Michael's Movie Mayhem Search Results

One probably could do similar search using things like DVDAf, Amazon, DVD Price Search to browse for any missing titles to include.

Thanks for the list.

Ahh, that has a lot of titles I don't have... I did a search at DVDAf and DVD Price Search, and some at Amazon.

Do you have this title? Was this an actual film cell, or was it the 3-d motion cover? I have a copy that I picked up at Borders, which was just the theatrical version, but it included a 3-d motion cover. I am not sure if it was a Borders Exclusive, or not. Borders and Waldenbooks have a similar cover that is exclusive, for Inu Yasha: The Movie.

I have the 3-d cover and the limited edition film cell. The 3-D cover was available for a run and the film cell was a Best Buy only exclusive. It's the extended cut and the film cell is in a plastic holder shrink wrapped to the DVD.

Thanks for the Halloween info, Beritolam!


I made a huge update after searching Michaels Movie Mayhem and Amazon, I will try searching DVD Profiler and Guzzlefish soon to see if there is anything else I have missed.

I tried searching DVD Price Search for CD, and it pulled up quite a few music CD/DVD combos, but I have no way of knowing what is limited, beyond what is already listed.

You might want to check out www.ultimatedisney.com. I guess you could call some of the 2-Disc OOP titles like Tarzan "Limited".

Since you went to all the trouble of making the list, it oughta have the Disney stuff to; I made the effort for you:

Platinum Editions:
- Beauty and the Beast
- Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
[does anybody know the date when 'The Lion King' will be OOP?]

Boxes: [I believe all permutations of these titles are OOP now]
- The Fantasia Anthology
- Toy Story: The Ultimate Toy Box

Misc:
- Peter Pan (Special Edition) [note: you should update your list, it's not available anymore]
- Sleeping Beauty (Special)
- Tarzan (Ultimate Edition)
- Tarzan (regular one-disc edition)

Or you could just link this: http://www.ultimatedisney.com/OOP.htm

Not sure when the last time they updated was, as I would've sworn that the "Ultimate Groove" edition of 'The Emporer's New Groove' was OOP.

I wasn't really sure about putting the Disney titles, as just about every Disney title will eventually go OOP. This thread was more for titles that were billed as limited editions, but then, most of the Disney titles ARE advertised as "available for a short time only, before they go back in the vault."

What does everyone think about adding all of the OOP Disney titles?
EDIT: They might be better off in the OOP thread that has been running recently, although I am not sure if the original poster was wanting to add them to his list, either.

I think it's safe to say everything from Disney is a limited edition.

Great list BTW.

How do people like the Creative Design Arts boxsets? Are they worth it?

Criterion's "Straw Dogs" was announced as a limited edition (it even had a little silver "LIMITED EDITION" sticker on the wrapper) as they knew their licence window was brief.

Also, the Fox Studio Classics "Sunrise" was a limited edition (and says so instead of a spine number).

I have added everything mentioned in the thread so far, with the exception of the Disney titles that are placed on moratorium.

I also tweaked the list just a bit.

Please keep submitting titles that would be considered limited edition.

No DVD has any long term value. The format will be dead within a decade as a higher resolution format takes its place.

May as well crack whatever you have open and enjoy it now. Are any laserdisc LEs still worth anything? Not really. The same will be true of DVDs.

DVD isn't a very solid long term investment choice. Better to go with a no-load mutual fund.

No one said this is about cashing them in one day, and becoming a millionaire...

DVDS go OOP all the time, and if they are labeled Limited Edition, then they will probably vanish even quicker.

Even with a new format coming, there is no guarantee that many of the older titles will be re-released... People are still waiting for favorites from VHS and Laserdisc, that haven't seen the light of day on DVD.

Very true....it's kind of sad really, as they change formats each time a few more movies will get lost along the way..I'm not getting rid of anything unitil I see it on the next format. There are at least 50 titles I want from the VHS days and I know they all wont' make it out.. It's more about the attachment to certain movies then anything.

I have added quite a few titles, but I am running out of places to search. If anyone has any Limited Edition titles that aren't listed here, please post them.
