Nice. I have the Boomstick edition DVD too, and I kept those discs with the BD. Don't have the autograph though, that's awesome.

I also have the Grinhouse BB steelbooks with both the DVDs and BDs inside.

It's not. I see it all the time. It's also the only version of Superman II released on blu-ray. It would be like saying Fly Away Home is rare because I never see that available at the store but it's readily available online. Ditto for something like Pyscho Beach Party on dvd.

I have a rare (not valuable mind you but still) complete CBS collector's set of the original Star Trek series (39 VHS). And if you don't think it's rare, how many sets do you know of also happen to have all 39 accompanying sell sheets to go with them?

None of my blu's are rare. I suppose on dvd I have an OOP Barbarella copy.

Probably the hardest movie to come by in my collection is Memento, I happened to come across one copy in Best Buy, a movie even Amazon didn't have. Of course I found out a week later they were re-releasing it...

The Third Man Criterion (Digipak and the extra Criterion clearcase/insert)
Pierrot Le Fou Criterion
OOP apparently but I'm sure not too rare -- Criterion The Man Who Fell to Earth

DVD:
Little Shop of Horrors original DVD with the B&W alternative ending -- I didn't realize until recently how rare this one was.

Evil Dead Limited Edition, Akira with slipbox and booklet, Sleeping Beauty Platinum Edition, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre with metallic cover art. The Twilight Zone seasons aren't available in a lot of B&M stores either if that counts. I've also got the Trick R Treat BD+DC combo pack with the slipcover. I have a few rare DVD releases as well, mostly animated.
