sharkboy -> Empire DVD swap shop is open! (26/2/2006 1:37:16 PM)

We've had Disc Club, we've had Mix Club.  Now what about a swap club?

I'm sure everyone has a disc in their collection that they'd be glad to see the back of.  And if EBay's taught me anything its that one man's meat is another man's poison (and vice versa).  So without further ado, welcome to the Empire DVD Swap Shop!

First up, here's how it works:
  1. If you've got a disc that you want to get rid of, you announce the fact in this thread. Give as many details of the release as possible (e.g. Region, Special edition, no. of discs etc)
  2. Anyone who want's the disc can offer one from their own collection.  If you see anything you like, then contact the person making the offer by PM to swap details.
  3. Once a swap has been agreed, post in the thread to let the others know that the disc is no longer available.

Of course, there'll have to be some ground rules.  So I'd suggest that the swap is restricted to those with 100+ posts only.  It goes without saying that the DVDs should be originals and in good condition.  People abusing the rules will be named and shamed and barred from any future swapping.  I'm not going to suggest that the disc offered should be similar to the original disc - if the person offering 24 Season 1 is happy to accept Love Actually in return, that's up to them.

REMEMBER FOLKS - 100 POSTS NEEDED TO PARTICIPATE!

Disclaimer - this swap shop is not organised by Empire or its affiliates.  Participants are responsible for getting the recipient's details and posting the DVD once a swap has been agreed. 

Happy swapping!

Yeah, I'd be up for that.

Could be interesting. Count me in.

Count me in




sharkboy -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (26/2/2006 7:12:52 PM)

Nice one people - a few more signing up and let swapping commence!




Amie -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (26/2/2006 7:33:14 PM)

I'll be in in a little while when I have enough posts.

Incidentally, I think you should have another rule - no laughing at the dvds people are offering and obviously spent good money on.  I know I've got a few that I wouldn't want people knowing about unless I was promised a no-laughing amnesty!




Timon -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (26/2/2006 7:44:41 PM)

Yeah sure. Count me in. Ok....here are two i'm keen to swap something for. I can't get much for them on Amazon marketplace

sharkboy -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (26/2/2006 8:02:22 PM)

Well, since we've about 15 expressions of interest and Timon has offered a couple of swaps, let's start the ball rolling!

So, anyone want to offer a DVD for either of these 2?  Get your offers and new swaps in!




sharkboy -> Empire DVD swap shop - now open!! (26/2/2006 8:17:11 PM)

Here's my first item I wish to swap:

[image]http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P/B0000AISI3.02.LZZZZZZZ.jpg[/image]

This is a R2 4-DVD box set which, in addition to the 3 movies above, also includes several of Polanski's short features.  Box set is in excellent condition, with a retail price at the time of around 40.




Helium Hunchback -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (26/2/2006 8:20:15 PM)

Good idea sharkboy. I'd like to swap these if anyone is interested. I don't have 100 posts but I've been here ages, honest.

sharkboy -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (26/2/2006 8:24:26 PM)

No probs HH - I think it's safe to put you down as an established poster in the circumstances!

In fact, anyone not yet at the 100 post level can petition to be included.  If you can get an established poster to 2nd your application, you're in!




Amie -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (26/2/2006 8:30:26 PM)

Please will someone second me?




Lebowski -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (26/2/2006 9:01:49 PM)

I think the whole point is that it's someone who knows you.  Helium was around for ages in the old forum.




Amie -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (26/2/2006 9:14:48 PM)

Well, yes, I realised that but thought I'd try being subtle rather than saying specific names and putting people on the spot.

My apologies - I was talking shit. It's not two discs - I just thought it was because of all the extra features. Call me a spastic if you want.

Amie - just get posting!  12 more and you make your ton (just try to avoid spam!)  May I direct you to the Off Topic element of the forum, where 12 posts may be made in 5 minutes? [:D]




Mycroft -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (27/2/2006 12:12:30 AM)

I have 2 beauties up for grabs:

See what all the Terrence Mallick fuss is about in one of his best works. No special features unless you count interactive menus like Fox does. Oh and some Melanesian songs
[image]http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/285/49479copy8bh.jpg[/image]

Or how about this tale of business, greed and murder? "Its about the restaurant business", as the tagline goes. Warning: not very good, also a poor transfer. It does have Lachy Hulme in it though, one of the top candidates for The Joker in Batman Begins 2

cakeordeath -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (27/2/2006 12:46:31 AM)

Anyone interested in scream 2?[:D]




Deadly_Little_Miho -> RE: Empire DVD swap shop - any interest? (27/2/2006 5:00:51 PM)

I've got a copy of Almost Famous (R2, 1 disc theatrical version), and R2 Leon if anyone wants them. There just taking up space, and I have other versions of both so almost any offer will be accepted - assuming I don't have it. Also have 'Swimming Pool' up for grabs.

I'd be interested in Leon if any of mine take your fancy.
