I couldn't buy them when they were 12 GBP, because I didn't know they were available (and I was not collecting steelbooks than, started 3 weeks ago).

And I'm still looking for another Thor copy and I'll probably buy another one for 60 GBP. FOR MYSELF.

I don't see how I'm going to make a profit on that one, do you? No, probably not...

F.e. I have also 3 copies of Gran Torino, 2 Chronicle + 1 coming and 2 of J. Edgar (French release).

And I do that only with movies I really like, that are the only ones I have double.

And I have pre-ordered 2 to trade. F.e. against FS exclusives.
Brilliant. Except this makes no sense. You've pre-ordered seven steelbooks of Iron Man. From the original seller. Taking away from genuine sales of people who only want one copy. I don't care if you bought Thor three times over on eBay. The point is no matter how you spin it, you have detracted from people who wanted to buy a copy of this. You say you don't see how your making a profit because your spending your money of Blu-rays...they ARE your profit. Your trading them for other Blu-rays. You are gaining something out of them. Ordering two to sell or trade is stopping people who wanted to buy a copy for themselves from doing so, as is having two spares. How is this hard to understand

(P.S. In the last week, I ordered ONE copy of Thor for £25 (Amazon Marketplace), ONE copy of Cap for £25 (eBay), ONE copy of Incredible Hulk, ONE copy of Predator, and then pre-ordered ONE copy of Iron Man, ONE copy of Iron Man 2 and ONE copy of Terminator. Why the hell do you need seven copies of Iron Man, then?)

'friends' is an abreviation for:

'its going to go on ebay with a fixed price of £80 or in an auction with a minimum reserve of £80

much easier just to say 'friends'

I like steelbooks, but they have to be around the same price as the standard release for me to be interested. I could never see myself tracking them down at £20+

I pre-ordered the Serenity steelbook at £10, standard release is around £8. £2 premium isn't so bad, for a film I like in a nice "collectors" style packaging. If it had been an HMV steelbook at £15-£18, I wouldn't be interested.

And I'm sure 90% of you guys here, telling me I'm doing a bad thing by ordering multiple copies, have bought multiple copies for themselves.

I am sure you will deny this, just to 'save your face' as the 'honest collector's', but we both know that is not true. Especially the steelbooks collector's, realizing this steelbook is almost similar to the FS one, which sells/sold for hundreds of dollars.

Unlike you, I'm telling the truth.

I was like that until the thought of having the Marvel Cinematic Universe in steelbook form seemed great. Luckily after rather expensive Thor and Cap copies, the rest are £10-£12 including Avengers

I only ordered one for my own collection, and I'm telling the truth. It's like having your morality cake and eating it.

Well, I can't stop you from thinking that. But I will tell you one thing: you are not the smartest guy if you think selling 2 blu-ray's will make me rich (I won't sell them, I will offer them for trade only, and you'll see that when the time comes).

You still ordered 7 of them so opinion of you doesn't change. I think you're greedy, regardless of whether you're gonna get 'rich' off of them or not. Don't need to be smart to come up with that.

Well, that's your opinion. I am still paying for them, I am not stealing them.
I bet you're also calling people who earn a lot of money, or receiving a high bonus, 'greedy'?

And I've never double bought. Don't see any point in doing so. I mean I was even struggling whether to go Blu Ray when I had all the Pixar DVDs. I got them eventually

1) No one said you'd get "rich" off them.
2) If you trade an Iron Man steelbook for something else, the item you get in return is still you profiting of the steelbook rather than someone who would buy it to add to their collection.
3) You bought seven copies. S E V E N COPIES. How is that not being greedy? You've stated you'll trade two so you clearly don't even want those ones that bad. Two for your "friends", if we believe they exist for now, you could let slide. Three for yourself in case of damage? Greed once again.
