WD Treasures R1 and R2 collection?

I was thinking about starting to collect the WD Treasures, when I found out that some of the R1 versions are quite expensive and rare.

Could I create a collection including both R1 and R2 (UK) releases?
I know that the releases are the same, but how about the tin boxes, are they identical?

As long as the content is the same, and the boxes look more or less identical, I think I'm going to go for a combination of the different releases. It'll be less stressful and cheaper.

The tins are exclusive to R1. R2 has some uncut (some say uncensored) scenes (esp. in Silly Symphonies).

I did not think the REgion 1's were expensive. $20 - 25 at Costco is not expensive.

Oh, I thought the UK releases had tin boxes too.

Well, I guess I'll just have to start spending money on the R1 versions then.

I have no one, so some of the first WD Treasures are OOP and hard to find.

Thanks for the help guys!

You should reread the OP original post. he was clearly not talking about just the recent wave.
