The Seventh Curse 88 films limited edition OOP… Not everywhere!

Almost every sight has this really nice limited edition of 88 films Deluxe set OOS , But again Orbit dvd has a few copies listed as “damaged”- pics shown $29.99. I have ordered quite a few “ damaged” titles from them and the pics do not do them justice as the ones I have received,(Thriller a cruel…, Babadook most recently), and all of them have looked essentially brand new for anyone interested before they sell out!

Already have this, but this looks like the only option for those who want it at this point. The damage does seem extensive though, on nearly all sides of the box. I’d imagine all the stuff inside is reasonably intact. Nice that Orbit includes pics; Diabolik recently had a batch of damaged TIGER CAGE I-III sets, but instead of posting a pic or two, they posted a warning box on the listing, essentially saying that if you’re sensitive to damage these sets aren’t for you, or something close to that. Much better to show people exactly what they’re getting in these instances.

Again my experience is that the pics they show are of multiple different copies. Wish I could show the titles I mentioned I received from them, cause they just dont exhibit the damage that was shown! Both the Babadook set and Thriller set look Undamaged vs. what little damage I saw in the pics when I ordered them. The pics Orbit shows seem over emphasize the very mnute damage ,IF ANY, I have seen in the sets I ordered. I have ordered “ broken cases” of BR they sell,(Basic Instinct for one), that looked exactly like the pics they show, and I just replace the case as contents are pristine in my experiences with them.Not sure what you were looking at BUT to me HARDLY look like “Extensive” damage you are seeing??

It looked extensive because I thought the pics were all from the same case. I don't think they specified that each pic was from a different box. Obviously that changes things. And had I missed out on this title, I probably would've jumped on one of these regardless, and from the sounds of it I would've been pleasantly surprised. I've had the same experience with Diabolik. As noted above, they don't post pics – which sucks – and instead post vague descriptions along the lines of "you probably won't like this" and yet, I've ordered a couple of "damaged" items in the past and have found them to be in 'like new' condition when I received them, with the 'damage' barely visible. I much prefer Orbit's method, but they either need to clarify that the pics come from different items – because collectively they absolutely DO look like extensive damage all over the case – or I somehow missed that.
