It was, someone correct me if I'm wrong, the biggest victime in the Arrow stock destroyed in the riots last year in England, and there are far fewer copies floating around. I don't think they had the rights to do much more than release it and sell that stock, it was never going to stay in print forever with Arrow, and the riots really destroyed the stock they did have. I'd love to knw how many survivnf copies there are.

I got mine on Amazon not that long ago, and there were quite a few on the Marketplace, but as you say the only one there now is 70 quid. My advice would be keep hecking that link, there may be someone selling it at some stage who doesn't know its scarcity. And f course, ebay is always worth checking.

Arrow no longer have the rights for this film so no more copies will be pressed unfortunately.

Is it true though that plenty of stock was damaged in the riot's last year?

I see. Well you learn something new every day!! Though i do wish Arrow would tell us of roughly rare something is/how many they were allowed to print/if its an unlimited run. Would be nice to know, and then can also prioritize buying!

True and some high street retailers may still have copies lingering about on the shelves too imo. HMV for one maybe or you could try perusing the likes of CEX for a used copy.

It's quite surprising how quickly Arrow's SS went OOP and thank God i purchased two copies!
