I likely won't compile anything more than the basics tonight, but I'm not sure if all the discs will go away at 3am ET or is the last available number will remain static for a couple days.[...]
Stay up until 3:01am, David, just in case there’s a new surprise. Who knows? Maybe they’ll post an announcement for a misplaced quad of New Releases. ;)

Meanwhile, farewell to Twilight Time.
We are going to miss you big time.
Thank you, adieu and may peace be with you all. :thumbs-up-smiley:

Well, it's after midnight everywhere. Even though I've already done my shopping, I just pulled up Twilight Time's website out of curiosity to see what it looks like now.

The listings for each title are still present, but they have a note on each page that says: "We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles." The add to cart button is, of course, gone. Oddly enough the "add to wish list" function is still there, even though that would seem to serve no purpose if you can't buy anything off of it anymore. It does appear that they automatically switched off all shopping cart and checkout functions at 3am ET.

Thank you for your service to film collectors everywhere, Twilight Time.

Again a big big sales day at TTM with close to 2150 units being sold, but in perspective TTM sold 40000 units the first 36 hrs of the Clearance Sale. A very late rush almost to the point of frenzy to get discs in under the wire. As best as I can tell 600+ units sold between 2am and 3am ET

Over the course of the entire 4 month sale approx 90000 units sold through TTM. The 2 month Clearance sale accounted for about 66000 units. I'll get the more detailed numbers out in a day or two. If there is something in the numbers you'd like to see, let me know and I'll see if I can extract it from my sheets.

Those numbers are great. Thanks David. I'm so glad TT's final sale went so well for them.

Out of curiosity, does this count the multiple orders of this title that were cancelled when TT realized they accepted a new shipment into inventory twice and were short on copies? A bunch of people ended up with their orders of this particular title cancelled and refunded, although I'm not sure how you could track the number of people who were affected by this.

I'm glad I got mine before all of that happened.

I'm just going by the inventory counts on the site. It's likely not going to (un)count listed as sold but refunded.

It might also double count some of the items that were put back from cancelled order though many of the 5 units and under 'returns' just got hidden in the daily numbers anyway. TTM did't really make a way to discover which items fro returns/cancellations and which were new units.

Overall this is relatively a small number of units sold and probably well within my initially rounded off inventory numbers from early March anyway. I had a ballpark starting number but narrowed most of those 500+ title down to the nearest 25 or 50

I would love to have the exact numbers, but I'm not sure TTM has a superclean handle to the overall totals
My numbers I'd say assume a 5-10% range of error on though bigger counts and the sales just give a relative ranking
