T2 unaligned tin - worth anything?

Okay Talkers, don't bash me for asking this question. It just happen that I saw a special on US coins that were minted incorrectly and their value went up.

The Tin of T2 : E that I saw had the imprint of the cyborg that was not line up with the color. It's like seeing 2 cyborg head overlapping each other.

So is there a market for such mistake (I pick up the correct cover by the way)?

Hmmm.... probably not. That's more of a manufacturing defect ... and (in my experience) the things that tend to be more "rare" or "collectible" are errors. Like... if it'd say TERNIMATOR-2 on the cover of the first print batch and a few leaked out before it was corrected. THAT would be worth something.

The only T2 tin worth anything is the one which works perfectly
& doesn't screw up the case inside.

Those are the rarest and are certainly climbing in value as we speak.

It's worth as much as a collector would be willing to pay for it. I think most of the people here are collectors to some degree, and I doubt anyone here would pay a premium for something like that.
The only time I've ever seen a DVD worth more than the original retail price is when something goes OOP.

You could put it up on ebay with a high reserve and promote it as a rare item. The gullibility of the average ebay user will be on your side.

I should put mine up for $80 BIN on ebay then-- oddly enough after reading all the post about the metal ripping the case- mine was perfect. Not that I'll ever put it back in the metal case though hehe.

I just came back from Tower and there were about a half dozen or so (just that I saw) that were misaligned. I'd say these were worth less than MSRP, IMHO.

I saw a sh?t load of T2:Extreme at Costco and they all have the misaligned imprint. A perfectly aligned imprint would probably worth more, if at all.

I would have to go with this thinking.
