wow, that's pretty pricey for a goodwill. though I will have to say compared to what they might have cost retail, you got a steal.

congrats. Glad to see others enjoying the rewards of LD's.

pawn shops have plenty of LD's I've found and can be found for good deals.

flea markets are also great places to search. if located in L.A. there is a couple of big used music stores that have a wide selection of very hard to find LD's.

Damm, nothing much to find in the RI/MA area, I cannot even seem to find much online for cheap LD's other than Ebay, but not that cheap there.

I watched a couple of these discs last night. It was so cool to be able to watch a full length Road Runner cartoon.
Yes I thought it was pricey for Goodwill but still worth the expense. I left behind two James Bond boxsets for 10.00 each and the deluxe Snow White set for 20.00.
Finding Laserdiscs in Ohio is getting to be a chore. I think most of them end on Ebay and the others are thrown away.

That's for sure. I pretty much use eBay exclusively now for buying LDs.

I've gotten old ones for as little as 40 cents each at Goodwill- they'd be thrown in with the LP's and that's what they thought they were. Got a few music LDs a few weeks ago for a buck each, including the 8-inch "We Are The World" disc.

Damn, even better than my Criterion Salo LD find a few years ago. Also passed up an LD of Hearts of Darkness.

I did nab the Ren & Stimpy essential collection though.

Ohio, you say? Very good deal; hope the boxes were in good condition. Reminds me of a deal I found at a local store a couple years ago where I got about $3,000+ worth of LD's for just under $400 (including the extraordinarily rare Lubitsch Touch box set for $19.99).

Only one box was damaged. The Looney Tunes Vol 1 the lid looks like it has been stepped on because the corners are busted out.
