The honest answer is that I don't know, and it's going to be quite hard to judge even from things like sales of Hammer volume 5 (the first region-locked Hammer box), because if it ultimately sells fewer copies than volume 4, there may be other reasons for this besides region-locking - with the best will in the world, not even the most rabidly uncritical Hammer fan is going to be able to pretend with a straight face that Visa to Canton and The Brigand of Kandahar are in the same class as Revenge of Frankenstein, Taste of Fear or The Damned.

But I can certainly confirm that the Columbia vaults will be fuelling more Indicator box sets.
