FOX 75TH POSTER: ALIEN

FOX is selling some repackaged dvds to celebrate their 75th Anniversary. When you buy, you get a free poster like this ALIEN one. I'm tempted to get it cause I'm a freak like that... but the dvd bundle is $17 for Alien, Aliens & Abyss.... on regular dvd (non-bluray). Do I really need ANOTHER copy of Alien and Aliens?... I have like 6 already what with various previous kickass packaging releases. I suppose I could just buy the dvds, keep the free poster and ditch the dvds.... and then put the rolled up poster in storage, cause I doubt I'd actually hang it..... ah the tormented lifestyle of an Alien Fanatic.

They are releasing them on Blu Ray, so maybe the poster will become available then as well.

Or maybe buy the DVD's, get the poster, then try to sell the DVD's on eBay. And chalk up any loss you take on the price you sell the DVD's for as the price you paid for the poster.

Yeah, it kills me now that so many of my uber favs are coming out on Blu-Ray. I have the Quadrilogy and the LOTRs box set. I was just at Best Buy and saw LOTRs on Blu-Ray...ARRRGGGGG!

The poster is pretty ugly Jim, don't waste yer moneh!

Coming from a guy who has like 17 copies of the same book. What's another DVD copy of Alien?

Craig's got a point there, Jimbo!

I understand the collecting mentality. This is my site, and it was a 15 year addiction that sapped me of much time and money.

Collecting is a sickness. :)

Hahaha, yes....
however over the years I have GREATLY reduced the amount of stuff I collect and have even thinned out my collections. With Alien stuff I primarily now just collect stuff related to ALIENS, or original vintage 1979 ALIEN stuff (like the old Kenner products). There's always exceptions, of course. But that's the general idea. As with the mulitple copies of ALIENS NOVELS (39 copies so far!), that is my single INSANE collection. I cann't afford (nor can my marriage afford) another insane collection like that. So I really can't buy anymore dvd copies..... in fact, this weekend I'm taking several copies of ALIEN, ALIENS and ALIEN3 to Good Will. I won't be buying this poster.... although a friend said they might be able to score one for me... I will accept that!
