Actually yes, it's quite absurd don't you think? I guess you would have to know how many DVDs I own that I haven't even watched yet to appreciate it.

Just sold my copy on Amazon for $85, as well. It sold within 24 hours of listing, so I assume the market price is even higher. Very nice to get so much for an unwanted disc - it helps ease the blow from the recent B&N Criterion sale. Thanks for the heads up OP.

Tough decision but I think it's time for one more viewing and sell.

I have two copies of the 2-disc version. I might as well put it up for sale on Amazon too.

I remember watching the teleportion scene when Siskel & Ebert reviewed this film. Even though it is an animated sequence I think it still looks great.

My favorite part of the film -- the light cycle design still looks great.

LOL I just sold my new copy for $125. I've never seen the movie, so will just pick up the BD later.

If it goes up to $150 then I will be forced to part with my sole copy.

Re: Tron: where in the world can I find it?

I had no idea of the crazy eBay prices until I stumbled on this thread. So I googled Tron Blu-Ray and stumbled on this semi-recent article.

http://www.collider.com/2010/10/28/s...ay-remastered/

This is good enough for me, and my copy is being thrown up on eBay tonight. I don't think this perfect storm is going to last much longer, so it's either now or never.

I found mine at FYE for 9.99. Im not sure about now due to the fact the new one is almost here. Ive heard that the original is going for 10x that. Good luck.

Hopefully I didn't miss the chance to ride high on the wave of selling. I put mine up on eBay and we'll see what happens...

Re: Tron: where in the world can I find it?

I've sold a few of these at $100+ over the past few weeks. It's always funny to me that the most profitable OOP dvds are always the ones that are temporarily mothballed to set up a duel release a couple of months down the road. The last time this happened it was Batman just prior to The Dark Knight coming out. But I have no problem parting fools from their money.

For anyone who wants one, your best bet is the FYE/Saturday Matinee/etc. chain. But they have recently raised their price on the double disc from 14.99 to 29.99, so if you're looking to flip them it's not quite as nice anymore.

I sold my scarred-up copy (not quite sure what happened to it, as I usually take really good care of my discs) for $56 on Sunday. I almost felt guilty.. Still, I'm sure that this is going to be out on blu-ray sooner rather than later, and this is certainly the kind of movie that I'd rather have on that format.

Re: Tron: where in the world can I find it?

Mine sold yesterday evening for $68. I don't think I've ever sold a DVD for that much. I'm always one to hang onto my DVD's, but if I can make that much of a profit of a disc that's forthcoming, I'll do it. I just hope they don't royally screw up the Blu-ray with DNR or something. Even if they do, I'll probably be able to buy the DVD back at a fraction of what I just sold it for.

Sold mine for $85 a few days ago. I still have one more that I'm going to hang onto for the time being.
