Thanks for the info, I went ahead and ordered it from annyoung.com as well. I don't really expect DVDAsian to get any in stock.

I've scoured the web, looking for a review, but have come up short...

I am getting it. If it is no good, I will trade it or ebay it. No big deal. Since it is so limited, I will probably make money should I decide to do it.

By that logic, I should buy every single LE released, in the hopes of making bundles on ebay. As a student, I do not have the resources for such things...

First of all, who cares if you are a student? It has absolutely nothing to do with this thread or the subject. Are you trying to get sympathy for being a student and not having money?

Second of all, where did I say that I was buying the DVD to make money? I want to see the movie, and I would rather the LE than the regular edition. If I don't like it, I know that I can get my money back so I have no reason not to buy it. If I am not interested in a movie that is released in LE, I won't buy it. No big deal. But if I did want to buy every LE available and ebay them, that is my right as well.

Can you follow that "logic"?

Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man. I wasn't accusing you of anything...

I don't tell people what they can and can't buy or what they can and can't do with what they buy.

I couldnt imagine buying any dvds if I were a student! how the hell would you pay for things like that?! I couldnt when I was a stundent thats for sure, unless you have a job as well.

Now I have a job I buy many, and I do invest in multiples of Special dvds I think will get me cash from them to pay for the copy I keep, it does work most the time, but its a big risk and buying 4 Alien Heads does cost shitloads and payed off in the end..

same goes for this Fighter in the Wind dvd, if I can get hold of 10 coopies of this L.E I will, it will cost me up front, but in the long run I know for certain I will be able to flog them for more than I paid, better than putting your cash in the bank thats for sure.


and as I am off topic, dont bite at me! you can say whatever you want as far as I can tell on this forum! and good on it too!

You should change your user name to Romero$$$

Didn't you get hit with a shitload of custom charges on those Alien heads?

By the way....if you're planning your retirement on "Fighter" sales, you might want to do it ASAP. Just in case the Korean studio that produced this film, decides to spit out a few more of these puppies to meet the insane demand.

Customs suck, especially here in Canada. For anything outside of Canada, I get hit with 15% of the Canadian dollar value, plus $5. That can certainly add up.

For those of you that purchased it from annyoung.com, keep us up to date with your orders. If they come through, I will add them to the list of places from where I will look for international orders.

Are you referring to items received from etailers or those from other traders?

Both really. For gifts, in Canada, we have the aforementioned taxes on anything over $60 Canadian. For merchandise, it is over $20. Most of my trades get by without getting hit, but most of my purchases outside of Canadian get nailed.

Why not just tell the truth, that they can't get enough to fill orders, instead of saying it's a "licensee problem"?
