I can't figure out what you're trying to say here.

Are these "discs you can never find a copy of at less than a ridiculous price"? Or is it "discs you will never buy, no matter how cheap, or how many copies you encounter"?
Because, seriously, "The Venus Wars" is neither rare nor expensive.

Problem with LDs is that once you have a basic collection I mean most common titles at reasonable prices it turns hard and harder to create a wider selected collection cause almost every damn ld out of there in 2017 is becoming skizophrenic pricey or unavailable pushing me to the Vhs side

I agree to a point, Late JP releases etc, but Criterion editions?

I find Criterions all the time, a few I've found for a dollar or less.

Some jap boxsets are just impossible by price or availability....

Not all criterion and a lot of titles that look like missed forever like Lensman regular and special edition (jap).....etc...

If you’re interested in things like The Cell then clearly what you want isn’t content but “rare LDs” as a thing itself in which case you have no right to complain about the price.

Quality LDs overall are very cheap and easy to find. You want hype, and hype by its nature costs money.

I honestly think the US LD of "Lensman" is harder to get than the Japanese one. I haven't so far succeeded in laying my hands on either, but I haven't searched as assiduously as I might have.

I have a US Lensman. I bought it because Camelot Music stocked it.

Or...I may have gotten it when Lumivision had a blowout sale. That's how I got Songs for Drella, which is way better than the CD version IMO.

Video quality is good. Like all Streamline stuff audio quality on the dub is terrible but the JP track is clear. Its also on the Digital, unlike Pioneer LDCA stuff was. Lumavison, from what I've seen, did a really good job. I think they used 3M.

I don't have the JP ones. I have seen them for sale over the years before though. I can think of way harder stuff to find than anything he mentions.

I sold a Japanese Lensman a few months ago for 30 or 35.
While it is hard to find you can buy one for 30-35 bucks.

If its hard for you to spend 30-35 bucks on a title then you should possibly stay away from LD and also The Cell. :lol:

Recent YAJ of Lensman: LD Special (1984) [PCLP-00074] went easily above $80. It's still in demand.

There's none available right now.

Yes, that box set is rare as it has some TV episodes and the making of for the film.
Lensman regular is just the movie and that's what I had and sold in the past.

Are you looking for the special edition or the film?? That box set has no film.
