Well more and more people are replying and it is making me very happy I am so happy that there are others out there that love Ghost In The Shell just like me
Absolutely love Ghost in the Shell! Glad to see others still are fans! Have the entire collection, actually the series got me into listening to Origa who does a lot of amazing anime/standalone vocals.
Well the laughing man Saga AKA The first season of ghost in the shell... they happen to complied all of the first season into a 110 minute movie Ova. for more info see link below.

I am a fan of the series but the only character I like enough to even attempt t dress up as is Detective Togusa and even then that would require the purchase of a good wig and the materials necessary to make a prop auto-revolver.

GITS was cool but I don't remember much from it now since it has been years since I saw the first movie and SAC 2nd Gig. I got some old wallscrolls from one of my uncles back when I first started watching anime. One is GITS and the other is Appleseed. I had not seen either anime at the time they were given to me >_<.
I would be amazed if you were able to find one like it somewhere for sale, it seems pretty old. All this has reminded me that I need to watch the original OVA though so I guess I will do that some time in the next few days.
Ghost In The shell is good anime, but you are right its not one you just jump into the middle of and enjoy.
