Mr. Brown, worth money...

For those who might care to know, or who own the Mr. Brown cover of the Reservoir Dogs spec ed DVD, as I do, will want to hear this:

The other day, I went down to the local used movie/music store called Orbit.  I was browsing through their selection of used DVD's and I happen to notice they had Reservoir Dogs in that section.  It was the copy I had, the Mr. Brown cover as I stated previously, so just for kicks, I checked out the price.  To my shock it was $84.99!!!  :shock:
I thought to myself "this must be some sort of mistake, a typo or something", so I decided to call it to their attention.  I didn't want to deny some poor shmuck the pleasure of owning the Mr. Brown cover.  So I went up to one of the employees with the DVD in my hand, and I asked him what the deal with high price was.  He said "oh, that's some rare copy of the movie, I think it's out of print".  My response was of confused jubilation.  I just laughed and said "cool", then put the DVD back.

I was thinking about selling them my copy and then buying the Mr. Pink cover or something, and getting like $30 extra.   I kind of want to keep it, though.  Understandably so.  I also have the now OOP Criterion DVD of Straw Dogs.  That went out of print on the first of Jan.  
So, apparently, I ROCK.  8)

Rock on, Sydney!  
Although, oddly enough, the Mr. Brown DVD isn't worth shit on Ebay, the most expensive one I saw was like $25.  But it'll go up, and we can just laugh in the face of those who waited to buy their Res Dogs DVD and got stuck with Mr. Pink (which is a cool cover, but is the only one I ever see).
Bwahahahaha!

this just in. it's not only mr. brown that's out of print. all of them are. all future editions that are printed will be done so without the slip covers featuring the different characters. so, i'm NOT a fuckin' idiot! hooray! we all got special limited editions!

the mister brown at the hmv megastore in canada was the only version they had left in stock.  it was going for like 15 bucks (that's ten of your dollars) so i don't know what is going on over there.  you could always order from here if you want.

I didn't know they all were only limited time!  That's cool then, suddenly mine doesn't seem so special.... :(

Who the hell would pay over 80 dollars for basically just a cover? I bought the Mr. White cover just because 1) he's my favourite character, 2) the others' colours looked stupid IMO, and 3) I didn't realize they were slip covers at first so I thought I'd be stuck with the one I got so I wanted the one most appealing to the eye. I think it's stupid, anyway. There's a cheap little booklet with some pictures and quotes, and some stats and very obvious facts about the character. Blah. If somebody's buying these for top dollar just show me where to sign up!

I feel like the only guy who bought Mr. Orange. Mr pink is everywhere I look, I didn't want Orange to feel bad. Plus, it's a great tint of orange.

I have Mr. Blonde.

Does anyone else think the actual DVD cover (the actual slip) looks really awful?
