    I think Candy also came in a collectible round tin if I'm not mistaken.

    Does the wooden box for The Wicker Man count for you at all?

    Like David say, you should really include all the "limited edition" packages from AB. This would include the AOD LE, the Suspiria LE ane the Wicker Man wood box.

    Candy came in two tin variations, so you'd need both of those.

    Also, Heathers is a tin, as is The Beyond.

    If you are doing limited editions you'd need Stuntman, Supergirl, Manhunter...

    There is also the 3 argento limited boxes. (non tin)

    Inferno/phenomena

    demons/demons II

    Deep red/tenebre

    Each limited to 5000.

    Also Opera is a limited edition.

    How is the other Candy tin ? I only got this annoying round box ? Is there a square one also ?

    Regards Michael Eriksen.

    There's also a SUSPIRIA 3-disc ltd. ed.

    CANDY was issued in two different tins. One is a solid pink color simulating a candy box and the other (and rarer) simulates a birth control pill dispenser.

    Both Candys are round, just with different artwork. I got both, cause I'm a freak.

    Still don't have the Maniac tin. I hate half these flicks...a sucker for special packaging...

    Well I do already have the Wooden box of Wicker Man, and I do have Suspira, Opera, Dario Argento Collection 1-3, Bad Taste SE. I don't have either of the two Candy tins. I was mainly asking about the big elongated tin sets like the ones listed.
    I am also a freak for special packaging Jeff, but I also care for whats in the packaging [​IMG]
    I for one can not wait until the Evil Dead: Book of the Dead version comes out! That will be a prize in itself!
