VHS, 1999 Re-release- Fox Video, 1184
I'm not sure if this is a new release actually.  It was sent to me, claiming to be a new cover/new release.  (It could be a rumor, with the image being a scan from the Australia 1996 release above).  Can't seem to find it when ordering.  But here's the information I have, assuming it's true.  New cover, with extreme close up of Cosmo's face (which is used for common covers) but slightly angled.  The vibrant red cover has been changed to a burnt red, sort of rust, color.  Shock Treatment logo is in yellow, for a change, while "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (written at top) is white.  A "PG" stamp is in the bottom left corner on the cover.  Everything else is the same as the 1993 re-release.  Somewhat difficult to come by because all video boxes are labeled 1184, and you usually get another cover if special ordered.  VALUE: $15 if sealed, $13 if not sealed but in mint condition, $10 if not sealed but in in good/fair condition
Laserdisc, Australian PAL release - CBS / Fox Video
This laserdisc doesn't have japanese subtitles, and the cover and back are completely different than that of the Japanese release.  Says on cover it's mono, not stereo, but inside label (HERE and HERE) says it's in stereo, not mono.  Regardless, this item is VERY hard to find.  VALUE: $70 if sealed, $60 if not sealed but in mint condition, $50 if not sealed but in good/fair condition.
Laserdisc, Japanese release - CBS / Fox Video, SF078-1273
This is the only time it has been released on laserdisc.  Only in Japan, not U.S., and features Japanese subtitles both on the movie and the sleeve.  Scenes are divided up into several "chapters" for easy access (basically at the start of each song).  (for another look at it, click HERE).  Extremely hard to come by since it is out of print.  VALUE: $60 if sealed, $50 if not sealed but in mint condition, $40 if not sealed but in in good/fair condition.

PROMOTIONAL ITEMS

U.S. Mask - 20th Century Fox
Cardboard mask with circles cut out at the eyes of famous "Cosmo" face.  I'm not sure how this was sold.  Someone told me once it came with the 12" but another fan said it came in a box set of Rocky Horror, while yet another fan said it was given as a promotional item from the studio to theaters (If anyone has imput, please email me).  VALUE: $5 if in mint condition or near mint, $4 if in good condition, and $3 if in fair condition
Australian Mask - Festival Records
The US printing of the Mask has a white plain background and was used as promotional material. In Australia the masks had a message printed on the back and were originally inserted into the LP. There are 4 different messages. 1. "The Rocky Horror Gang"  2. "Brad And Janet Are Back" 3. "Original Soundtrack on Records And Tapes"  4. "Be A Real Live Wire". These are extremely hard to find - especially all 4 masks!  (If you own the first pressing of the Australian LP with the mask inside, the value of the mask itself is added to the value of the LP).  VALUES for mint condition masks (deduct $5 off each for good or fair conditioned masks):  $100 for complete set of 4, $75 for set of 3, $50 for set of 2, or $25 for one mask.

Starburst - Issue #30
This Australian movie magazine wrote a very small feature on the "upcoming" movie called "Shock Treatment."  It's unusual to find an article about the film while the film is still in shooting production.  I have included it here, for collector's purposes, even though it's incredibly short.  There are no pictures attached to the article, but you can read the transcript HERE.

CONVENTION MEMORABILIA

(--NOTE: As I own no memorabilia from any convention, I don't have anything to print here.  Please submit memorabilia from conventions by emailing me.  Thanks!)

AUTOGRAPHED ITEMS

It's great to collect  items related to Shock Treatment, but even better when they've been signed by a Shock Treatment star (excluding Rocky Horror items signed by Richard, Pat, Charles, Jeremy, or Nell).  If you have an autographed Shock Treatment item, you should be proud!  VALUE: $50 regardless of star

BOOTLEG / CDR / MISCELLANEOUS

NOTE:  CDRs are easily reproduced for cheap prices, and then resold for higher prices, a practice that should be discouraged.  Therefore, values set for CDRs and Bootlegs are somewhat low to discourage any mass producing and profiteering.
Shock Treatment, The Remixes - DoRight Productions
Bootleg CD (CDR) produced by 2 remixers, and only 10 copies were printed.  VALUE: $20 if sealed, $15 if not
Shock Treatment, The Remix Singles - DoRight Productions

VALUE: $20 if sealed, $15 if not
Shock Treatment, Double Feature - Unknown
This is a double CD bootleg (CDR).  It features the entire film on CD (most on 1st CD, continuing on the next) broken up into individual tracks for easy access.  The 2nd CD (thus the "double feature") is karaoke tracks from the film (which is a hard to find treat), as well as remixes previously made available on the "Remix" CD above.  VALUE: $35 if sealed, $30 if not
Dark Refrains - A Collection Of Rocky Horror And Related Rarities - Unknown
The privately produced (limited edition of 35 copies, stated) disc features some rare Richard O'Brien songs, as well as Little Nell songs.  Of course, there's some Rocky stuff on it as well.  Gold cd with professionally printed letters (paint) on the CD itself.  If you have an original, VALUE: $40.  If you have a CDR copy, VALUE: $10
Bride Of Rocky Horror Rarities - Unknown
This CD bootleg (CDR) features some Richard O'Brien tracks, as well as Shock Treatment sung in Japanese by Transexual Glamor.  Most of this CDR is poorly recorded.  Unknown how many copies of this there is floating around.  VALUE: $10

UPDATE:  Mad Man Mike recently emailed The Shock Treatment Network and explained the origin of this bootleg CD.  Here's an excerpt from his email:

Just looking at your site and wanted to give you the low down on the Bride of Rocky rarites cd that you have in the bootleg section.  Well I had made that back in like 1998. on a pioneer cd making machine. Just to fill in the gaps there where 25 copies in all with covers and what not. Sold only at the NYC convention, now as for the reason the tracks sound so bad. is because some where just off the 45s I had.  But most of them where taken from back then what where rare bootleg tapes and what not. this was before P2P file sharing and what not.  So I just used what I had at the time.  of course by today's standards I could get much better sources for it all.
Transexual Glamour CD - Japan, 1995, RHPS9999
This CD, privately produced, features Rocky Horror songs, sung in Japanese.  Also in Japanese, is a cover of the song Shock Treatment.  Running time of CD, just over 28 minutes. Value: $30
Shock Treatment - "Don Mike" Remix - Unknown
Original remix of the song, assumed to be a fan-made remix.  Have only seen on cassette copies, not CDR.  Contains dialogue from the film on top of a somewhat longer version of the title track.  VALUE: $5
Farley Flavors' Champagne
Same "brand" as in the film during "Little Black Dress."  Cute idea to have "F" labels made on champagne bottles (which I'm not sure are real champagne or grape juice).  I am told that they were "produced" by Shock Treatment fans or a fan club for Shock Treatment.  If anyone knows for sure, I would like more details please.  (NOTE:  I was just informed on where these wonderful items came from [thanks Ruth!].  You can check out the website at http://www.boog.org.) VALUE: $10 if sealed, $8 if not
Slides
From time to time, you can find slides for Shock Treatment for slide projectors.  They were never "officially" made by Fox.  These were hand made, most likely for profit, from film cells, and quite often cut directly out of the film or trailer.  This is a shame as 35mm film of Shock Treatment is rare, and cutting scenes for profit only makes "bad film slices" when a theater shows the film. Cutting from the 35mm trailer is even more shameful knowing its rarity. VALUE: $2 each slide.
Film Cells
Again, it's shameful that anyone purposely cut any film cells from the print or trailer (see "slides" above).  However, sometimes a film legitimately breaks, and a movie theater just cuts out the bad break and throws away some damaged (and sometimes undamaged) film cells.  It takes 24 frames of film to make one second of movie time.  Here are some more examples.  VALUE: $1 per frame
DuFoeNet INTERVIEW CDR
This is not a CD, but it is a CDR which tries to sound legitimate through advertizing on Rocky Horror sites and eBay.  The sound quality is dreadful and there are only 2 tracks related to Richard O'Brien, the second of which is incredibly short.  The interview is pretty much boring.  The seller recorded it onto a CDR and printed out a very pixillated black and white cover and back for the jewel case.  He (or she) sells it at $15 a piece, when the blank CDR probably cost them between 1 to 2 dollars.  VALUE: $2.00

SHOCK TREATMENT RELATED ITEMS

(--Note: due to the sheer number of Rocky Horror items and the fact that most, if not all, Shock Treatment collectors own something from Rocky Horror, Rocky Horror items are not included here, except for "From The Vaults" because it contains Shock Treatment songs.)
Songs From The Vaults - 1990 Ode Records
From the 15th Anniversary Box Set of Rocky Horror.  Amongst the goodies inside is an album called "Songs From The Vaults" (available on cassette and compact disc).  Features Shock Treatment songs, as well as (Little) Nell Campbell songs.  VALUE (either format): $60 for entire box set unopened, or $50 for entire box set (nothing missing) opened.  CD or Cassette alone: $15
Dr. Demento CD - Rhino Records
Of course, "Time Warp" is a song easily found on a Dr. Dimento CD compilation.  However, if you search hard enough on ebay (or whatever), you'll be surprised to realize that the song "Shock Treatment" was released on compilation PROMOs sent out to radio stations.  It is regretful that there is not a compilation with the Shock Treatment song released commercially.  Available on compact disc and vinyl.  VALUE: $35
Lukeski CD
This is a legitimate (not bootleg) CD by a crazy guy named Lukeski (think Weird Al).  Has been featured on Dr. Deminto several times, as well as Man Cow.  He does many parodies of many songs, including "Rocky Horror," a parody of Insane Clown Possies "House of Horror" which (thanks to wonderful and cute editing) samples the famous Shock Treatment "riff."  His CD contains a parody of Mystery Science Theater 2000 sung to the tune of Rocky Horror's Science Fiction Double Feature.  A must have for all Rocky and Shock collectors.  And it's NOT a CDR, it's a real CD!  If you're interested in obtaining this CD, or his first double CD (not mentioned but contains original parodies of Rocky Horror) email Lukeski at lukeski@juno.com or visit his website, www.lukeski.com. VALUE: $10
Absolute O'Brien - Oglio Records / Medical Records, OGL 89111-2
First album released by Richard under his own name.  Very jazzy CD.  Still in print, but probably needs to be special ordered from your local music store if your local store doesn't already have it.  Or you can order directly from the record company over the internet (including a bonus poster) at http://www.oglio.com.VALUE: $15  (NOTE:  There are promotional items for this CD as well, such as posters.  Each promo item is valued at $5)
Richard O'Brien single, "Time Warp 2K" - Oglio records
Although this is a "Rocky Horror" item (and I usually don't include Rocky Horror" items) it is included here because it is a Richard O'Brien solo effort.  It is a new recording, under his new label, without the RHPS cast helping him.  You can get order this updated remix of Time Warp (a CD-maxi single) from his new record label, at http://www.oglio.com. VALUE:  $6 in mint condition, $5 in good condition, and $4 in fair condition.
Disgracefully Yours, starring Richard O'Brien as Mephistopheles Smith - Bootleg CDR
This CDR was taken from the video transylvania 92 convention.  I know that he has toured under this alias. VALUE: $15
Cliff DeYoung LP
Released only on vinyl record (the scanned image here is the the cover cropped because the full cover was too large for my scanner).  For an image of the record label inside (side one), click HERE.  To see the entire backside of this album, click HERE.  Extremely hard to come by.  VALUE: $40 if in mint condition, $35 if in good / fair condition
Cliff DeYoung Single "My Sweet Lady/Sunshine"
This single went to the number one spot on the charts.  From the soundtrack to "Sunshine," which made "Sunshine On My Shoulders" famous (John Denver).  Single includes DeYoung's version of "Sunshine" as well.  Available in picture sleeve (VALUE: $6) and regular die-cut non-picture sleeve (VALUE: $4).  Promo version available as well in picture sleeve (VALUE: $10).
Jessica Harper CDs
Jessica released four CDs (and cassettes) in all, each geared for children.  They are "Nora's Room," "40 Winks," "Not A Traditional Christmas," and "A Wonderful Life."  Each VALUE (regardless of format): $15
Jessica Harper Book
Released September 1999, "I Forgot My Shoes" is her first book for children, and it's based on one of her songs.  Great idea considering her talent for writing children's songs.  VALUE: $15
Phantom Of The Paradise Soundtrack
The only soundtrack (other than Shock Treatment) featuring songs sung by Jessica Harper.  Available in many formats.  VALUE (regardless of format): $20
Sunshine Soundtrack
The only soundtrack (other than Shock Treatment) which features a Cliff De Young song.  Available in many formats, except compact disc, and very hard to find.  VALUE (regardless of format): $30
Little Nell singles
Little Nell (a/k/a Nell Campbell) released various singles.  Fever (on black vinyl) 7" single (VALUE: $8), Fever (on yellow vinyl) 7" single (VALUE: $12), Fever (on black vinyl) 12" single (VALUE: $20), Musical World Of Little Nell (a/k/a "I Do The Swim") 7" black vinyl single (VALUE: $10), and Beauty Queen 7" black vinyl single.  For more specific information on the Nell singles, such as images and catalogue numbers, click HERE.(VALUE: $15).
"Go 'Head" by 2 U HI! - Vinyl 12" single, CSR 120014, Central Station Records. Made in Germany, 1989
Running time 5:30 - this was a dance track by the group "2 U HI!" featuring many different samples including 4 or 5 from Shock Treatment (mostly of Macy from the Commercial Break).  Long out of print, and very difficult to find. No CD release.  VALUE: $25 in mint condition, $20 in good condition, $10 for CDR copy.
Videos / Trailers / 35mm Films / TV Shows (copies) featuring Shock Treatment stars
Hardcore Shock Treatment collectors often try to find videos of movies that feature actors from Shock Treatment.  Most are out of print on video, and they are forced to rent them (and copy them) or buy the ones they can find.  Some collectors find copies of TV programs that featured the actors from Shock Treatment.  Sometimes, after a good search, they can find actual 35mm film print of these movies, as well as 35mm trailers.  Definitely a sign of a hardcore collector. VALUE of copies: $2 each film (cost of blank tape), VALUE of actual Videos: $15 each, VALUE of 35mm Trailers: $10 each, and VALUE of 35mm film feature: $50 each title.

RUMORED ITEMS

(--NOTE: The following items have no "value" as they are only RUMORED to exist.  Please confirm if you have one of these by emailing me.)
8-track
It is possible this exists, as 8-tracks were made all the way up to late 1985.
VHS Promotional Trailer
This item was seen recently on eBay, saying it was a VHS video tape, NOT a copy.  I didn't win so I am not sure if it is true.  Ad claimed that the tape cover (promotional white) had 20th Century Fox copyright on it.
Reel to Reel
Back in the days of 8-track, another popular format for music playback was reel-to-reel, which came in a special flat box.  They stopped making reel-to-reel mid-1982, so I'm not sure if Shock Treatment was ever made that way.
8mm print
Most home "cam-corders" in the "old" days were 8-millimeter film ran on 8mm projectors.  Some feature films were released this way.  Most "popular" ones were not.  Although they initially stopped making 8mm movies around 1981, ever so often a film is released on this format, usually as a novelty.  In 1982, around the time Shock Treatment was released, the movie "Secret of Nimh" was released on 8mm film.  Most recently, in 1991, movie "Madonna - Truth or Dare" was released on 8mm film.  So the possibility exists that our favorite cult film was released this way too.
8mm trailer
Ditto on the trailer (see 8mm film, as well as "trailer" sections on this page).
Promo CD
It seems only logical that if they released "promotion only" copies of the vinyl soundtrack, and singles, why not the CD?
Promo VHS
...and why not the video? (see Promo CD)
Press Book
Press books are stapled books (like magazines) that feature nothing but ads for a movie coming out.  They are sent out to theaters and newspapers for printing ads on the movies.  The ads are all different sizes and shapes, and often contain production notes.  They even made a press book for Rocky Horror.  Although I am told they don't use press books anymore, there's still the possibility that there was one made and distributed for Shock Treatment.
Movie Disc
Back in the late '70s through the mid '80s, there was a format to watch movies called "Movie Disc" which was very similar to what we now call "laserdisc."  The large "disc," however, was inside a thick and heavy plastic sleeve (for protection), and you put the entire sleeve (with disc inside) INTO the movie disc player.  The player removed the disc for you, allowing you to remove the sleeve and replace it when finished watching the movie.  One of the most recent movie discs was "Empire Strikes Back" which came out after Shock Treatment.  And CBS / Fox released quite a number of them, particularly titles that were not successful at theaters.  Therefore, it is highly possible that a movie disc for Shock Treatment exists.
