Hi All and welcome to my collection (more like my addiction) :):):)

My first Plain Archive release was the master keepcase edition, bought around march 1st of this year (2015). since then i have made it my prority to own every plain archive and every plain selective title out there that i can find! i now own 60 different edtitions and over 125 in total ( i have more not shown in the pics). I try my best to collect everything numbered 0099 and under but its really tough seeing as though i got into collecting these so late.

Your probaly thinking, why does he have so many copies of every film?

The answer is simple. i love plain archive. these are more to me than just blu rays, they are little pieces of art. the artwork, attention to detail, texture, caligraphy, booklet, artcards, posters, colours used are just the best in the world, and lets not forget the most important part: the films!! arthouse and small films that are really specia and niche!!

Plain archive make the finest blu rays in the world in my opinion and. noone out there does it better! I have all of them on display as i love them so much! Plain archive only has 2 permanent staff, how they manage to do what they do i will never understand

because i have open copies and sealed copies i wanted everything to be in pairs rather than just 1 open copy of a film by itself so thats the reason why i have everything in pairs. if i have 3 or more of something its because i truly love it!

A couple of people i want to mention that have inspired me/got me into plain archive

First up is the King of Plain Archive, BluPrint! After seeing his collection on HDN i was gobsmacked and extremely jealous! i honestly never thought i would have something similar to him ever!! Hes of the main reasons why i have a collection like i do!

Severo and fishvtec - After seeing their collection on here, i wanted to have a collection with really low numbers so i made it my mission to hunt down numbers 0099 and below.

Nodingsnoscratches - after seeing his sealed collection of multiple different versions i was also inspired to do the same! i used to buy 1 version of a release, not any more lol

Jacobsever - we got into collecting plain archive about the same time and bought pretty much identical releases at the same time, its been great discussing our love for plain archive on the forums!

maxsteelbook - trying to be the first to have 50 different plain archive releases was fun, of course he beat me to it :p

Juno Baek - For creating Plain Archive

and anyone that has helped me with my collection/i have bought off. discussed plain archive with or has inspired me! thanks alot!

I hope i inspire other people to want to build a plain archive collection!!

thanks for looking at my collection

Jeremy




This is my opened collection. i have 1 or more versions open for every release. no point in buying these if you dont plan to open them and appreciate their beauty!


My Plain selective collection. im currently buying doubles of everything and trying to find the few that missing!! if you can help, please me me know!!





These are the lowest numbers i have for each edition. my goal is to have every version 0099 and under. im missing about 2 i think so if you happen to have one you want to sell please let me know!!









Every Plain Archive release i own plus the collectible numbers i own. 55 different versions in total (and counting :p)

@djjez83 I...I really don't know what to say. I can't even think of a word for your collection, so....


Yea, alsmot every word applies to your collection. But if I had to pick one word, I think it'd be 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' :rofl:
But yea man, I'm speechless. Thanks for showing me something so amazing. Great job on collecting these. Where did you even get Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Jin-Roh? These are nonexistent even on eBay.

P.S. - In case you're wondering how come you tagged over 30 people but got only a handful of likes. That's because only the first 8 people/tags get the notification. So if I were you I'd tag the rest again in separate posts to let them know about this :):thumbs:

That is just incredible or beyond that, I actually can't think right now, 'cause it's so overwhelming. I ordered my first two PA releases earlier this week and can't wait to get them. What you've done here is nothing less than crazy... ok, enough adjectives :D

Congratulations on this beautiful collection of yours :)
