Steelbooks
Metropolis (first edition) (16)
Metropolis (second edition) (16)
Silent Running (23)
Touch of Evil (25)
Double Idemnity (44)
The Passion of the Joan of Arc (50)
Nosferatu (70)

Limited Editions
A Touch of Zen (130)
Shane (123)


KO stands for kind of OOP, so they are either going or soon to go.
ES means you can buy it at the Eureka store.
A+ means the price is expensive on Amazon, ususally meaning their stock is low (£15+). A- means the prices are normal and product is stocked (£7-15).
The Pialats (72-78) aren't OOP, but Eureka said they were going OOP last year and are not getting renewed.
Shoeshine (33) is only being sold on Amazon (not Base or Zavvi).

Pretty handy guide if you are new to the collection like me.

Update 19/06/2014-Alone Across the Pacific (69) added.
Update 30/06/2014-Gandahar not available at Eureka Store.
Update 19/07/2014-Bellissima (47) added.
Update 28/07/2014-The Devil and Daniel Webster (70) added.
Update 27/08/2014-Diary of a Lost Girl (39) removed. Upgraded to Duel Format.
Update 22/09/2014-The Face of Another is completely OOP. All the stock has been fully sold.
Update 22/09/2014-Adding (A) to the key to say which are available direct from Amazon. Also the website upgraded a while ago and I will take away the films that are presently not available to buy direct. So that's The Holy Mountain (2), Michael (3), Scandal (15), Assassination (20), Shoeshine (33) and Kokoro (67).
Update 10/03/2015-The Last Laugh (23) (not officially announced as OOP but is), Silent Running Steelbook, Nosferatu steelbook, La Signora Di Tutti (100), La Vie de Jesus (60). Scandal (15) not available on Amazon.
Update 01/07/2015-Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter blu ray (14), Ballad of Narayama blu ray (24), Double Idemnity Steelbook (44), and DVDs Pigsty (110), Funeral Parade of Roses (32), Grey Gardens (43) added
Update 01/10/2015- Les Maitres du Temps (62), A Man Vanishes (113), Profound Desires of the Gods blu ray (10), The Insect Woman blu ray (22), Vengeance is Mine blu ray (11), Metropolis blu ray steelbook Second Edition (16). Pigsty has become undeleted for some reason... (So Pigsty (110) removed).
Update 02/06/2016 Passion of the Joan of Arc Steelbook (50), Make Way for Tomorrow blu ray (15) Shane 2-Disc (123), A Touch of Zen Ltd Edition (130) added. The Last Laugh (23) removed as it has been upgraded.

Frau Im Mond is not available from the Eureka store. I just tried to order it, and was told none were available. I hadn't realised it was going OOP - it's the only one from the list I don't have and have meaning to get it for ages. And it doesn't seem to be available for a sensible price anywhere else.

Hopefully, they'll find a few copies stuffed down the back of a sofa...

Wikipedia says Muriel is already OOP (must be true then haha), but for some reason you can buy it £6.00 from the store and £6.80 from Amazon.

Shame about Frau im Mond. It could be coming to blu-ray as the DVD of Faust wasn't available direct a month before it was announced.

Still I got 6, 16, 20, 22, 26, 39, 63, 67, 76 and 79 between £5-£11 each.

It's still listed for £6 on the store but you can't buy it.

I will keep updating the list. Also, Shoeshine is in the early stages of going OOP.


It's also one of the £6 titles at the Eureka Store.

Frau im Mond is coming to dual-format in case you missed the dedicated thread. Hope you didn't end up spending big bux to track a copy down!

I really hope they upgrade the Naruse set next, they could do a Kickstarter to guarantee the fund needed!

I think I'd be more inclined to contribute to a Kickstarter to put out a Volume 2.

I cannot see why both cannot happen, they could raise funds for an exclusive box set like Arrow and then release some titles separately or a standalone Vol.2 box set even.

I wonder if they even have a "live" license to the Toho Naruse films -- I can't imagine they would spend the money needed to renew these rights. MoC gave Naruse's work its best efforts -- but the English-speaking world was (still) not yet ready.

For those who missed out on a Mizoguchi set, we've got some press copies left, they have no limited edition sticker but are in every other way identical to the Ltd set. The listing is live in the webstore now.

Could that mean an upgrade to dual format?

I really wish they told us which of their numerous OOP titles they still have the rights and more importantly which ones they are actively trying to reprint/upgrade.

If they're not selling, then they're not selling - but there's too many interesting titles going oop and frankly, not as many comparable titles being acquired. What is guaranteed renewal - the Murnaus and Lang? It'll just be those and the Hollywood films being renewed (who knows - Simon Killer might be in with a shot).

It's a business, not a museum of interesting titles.

So are Lang's Indian films OOP or just MIA from Eureka's new site (where it joins the Montez ALI BABA)? The inability to sort by spine, and see the numbers on the main MOC page) is the biggest fault I'm finding with the site. (Love Love) Loved the layout on the old MOC site as it was simple and orderly.

EDIT: Oh and the option to view the titles as a list rather than grid would be beneficial as well!

It's only £7.57 at Amazon UK, and still available at many other sites, just not Eureka directly...

I wonder if they ever got around to re-printing stock after the fire? It was at least a year, if not more, before Tartuffe and Spione became available after that.
