The tin is OOP I'm afraid. I think its an awesome film, gets better with each viewing. I've got the tin myself and I think its worth a puchase if you can get it. A nice piece to add to the collection.

i have the tin too; however, i think they issued another dvd with a new transfer of the film. the tin comes with the soundtrack, but i wouldn't spend too much on it, personally.

It has been OOP for probably 5 years. I sold mine a long time ago. There is a new release with a better transfer from what I have read, that would be the cheaper, better option IMHO.

The soundtrack is pretty great, but you can readily buy that seperately on DVD.

There is a cool booklet in the tin, but overall the newer release is better, extras and picture wise.

I've seen a few at Amoeba in LA for around $40-50. Not too bad, considering. It's a great addition to any cult fan's collection.

The soundtrack CD is the only way in which the Tin was better than the most recent Universal re-release; the newest version has better picture quality and all the extras from the Tin, along with three new ones: a fairly insane interview with Harry Dean Stanton, a bizarre Deleted Scenes section involving the real-life inventor of the Neutron Bomb, and another documetary about the locations they filmed. All three of these are worth seeing.

Unless you're a collector, it's better (and cheaper) to buy the new version, and then buy the soundtrack separately if you want it.

I used to own the non-tin AB release,but sold it to get the new SE which is far better in my opinion. Not only do you have all the extras(which i thought werre worth seeing),but also the original mono mix...and the 5.1 mix for those that want it.

A friend of mine owns the tin and I never thought it was worth it. The comic that came with it was impossible to read. Since the text was so small,you had to squint to make out words, and even then everything blurred together. It didn't look like that good of a comic anyway.

The soundtrack cd which I own can easily be found if you look. I found mine new in Cheapo Discs.

Yeah, seriously, don't bother with the tin. It's an admittedly creative design, but that's about it. Like others have said, the Universal reissue has far better picture quality, plus all the AB extras and some worthwhile new ones, and it's a lot cheaper. Check the comparison here:

I sent my tin into DVD Planet for store credit awhile back; don't regret it at all. But then again, I'm not into collectibles.

Considering the better transfer of the new release, I think I'll settle for this. Still the Tin looks so irresistable!

There are several sellers on the amazon marketplace selling the tin in the twenty dollar range.
