It's not particularly easy to find. Amazon's got it for $100+ and there's only two listings on eBay currently, both are pretty expensive.

I think the combination of it being a relatively unknown film and not a widespread release (Disc was made by Discotek as opposed to Media Blasters) made it so expensive on the aftermarket.

lol Wow. I hope it is not bad like Orochi/Yamato Takeru then. I only say that because that movie is worth like $80, I paid $1.50 for it, and I want my $1.50 back.

You should be careful, the original pressing of War in Space had awful frame jutter issues. Discotek released a replacement disc sometime later. I sent away for mine.

Seeing as how I bought it directly from their table, I'm sure it is a fixed version.

The Showa era ends not with a bang, but a whimper.

I found some episodes of the Hanna Barbera series on DVD for like five bucks. I haven't watched them yet, but I'm just stoked to own it.

I just found Prism's VHS release of GTTHM at an antique store. A release apparently so rare that it isn't even in TK's VHS article.

Pre-ordered Skull Isalnd and Shin Godzila.
I can't believe that Godzilla was the only surviving member of its species, but if we continue conducting nuclear tests, it's possible that another Godzilla might appear somewhere in the world again.
