Unless you bought "Robocop" after it went out of print, I'd say you could get a pretty penny for it. Still, I wouldn't sell it.

I really don't see how the Criterion Robocop is worth all that much anymore. For a while it was the only way to see the full uncut version so the $40+ price on eBay was worth paying. But ever since the Robocop trilogy box was released with the uncut original it's pretty much been worthless to pay the extra cash for the Criterion.

The only differences I am aware of are that the Criterion has storyboards and is Verhoven's preferred 1.66:1 instead of the theatrical 1.85:1. For me, it's not worth paying the eBay prices for the one movie when I can get the same thing plus two other movies (granted this is not much of a seller, except for comedy purposes) for a fair amount less. Image quality is also about the same if not better on the trilogy DVD, for anyone who was going to mention it.
