Animation and Film DVD’s I’m trying to get rid of

Jun

Right, this is a long list of DVDs I have that might interest some of you..

Any offers accepted.. the rare ones usually £15-£10 but will negotiate down as I see fit and run of the mill ones £3 or so… so take you pick and email me at with a list of the DVDs you want and I’ll send payment request via paypal to that email address and check them off the list. First come first served…email me and I’ll strike off what’s been taken as quickly as I can.

Payment by paypal, once payment is confirmed and a small contribution towards postage has been added. standard: usually £1.20. I’ll ship it off to you a.s.a.p. Failing that I’ll drop a load off at the Atrium for those who are close by to pick them up from Animation Dept… 🙂

Note: some of these DVD’s are NTSC region 1.. if you have a multiregion or Region free DVD player you should be fine.
