You can get the Lonewolf Box Set here for US$37.5 which contains all 6 films and includes shipping!!
Link for Box Set (http://www.ethaicd.com/show.php?pid=22022)
These are the Thai release but contain the very same prints that are used on the Animeigo releases in the US so they are a bloody bargain!!! :D
You can buy from ethai with confidence. Myself and many others use ethaicd and they are great. I've had countless orders with them and never had any problems at all and their customer service is second to none.

What's happeing brother?
I love these vintage samurai films as well. Your at a good start and I imagine you've already picked up some more.
Here's a list of actors and their films that you must have;
Sword Of Doom (w/ Toshiro Mifune as well)
Goyokin (w/Tetsuro Tanba as well)
Ran (only because he's in it)
Festival Of Fire (which you have-he's Zatoichi's main rival-in this film)
Potrait Of Hell (not samurai)
Sleepy Eyes Of Death/The Chinese Jade
Slleepy Eyes Of Death/Full Circle Killing
Sleepy Eyes Of Death/Sword Of Adventure
Sleepy Eyes Of Death/Sword Of Satan
Sleepy Eyes Of Death/Sword Of Seduction
Sleepy Eyes Of Death/Sword Of Fire
There are six more titles in this series that are very hard to find, e.g. In The Spider's Lair.
Shinobi No Mono (1963 ninja stories)
Zoku Shinobi No Mono
Shin No Shikoutei (w/Shintaro Katsu and Ichikawa Raizo)
Throne Of Blood
Duel At Ichijoji Temple
Duel At Ganryu Island
Incident At Blood Pass (w/Shintaro Katsu as well)
There are many more films by this actor who was the top swordsman in Japan just before performing in cinema.
Zatoichi films number 27 (one is currently only available in Japan; Zatoichi's pilgrimage - which is very similar to Zatoichi At Large-bare this in mind when a trader/seller says they carry this film.
If you like Zatoichi you should possess all of his films. They're all good. Festival Of Fire, Desperation, and Conspiracy are his later efforts and not up to par w/ his earlier productions, but still worth possessing.
Other films he's done which are very good;
Tenchu (Heaven's Punishment) is an excellent film.
He has a huge filmography, so you'll have to do some research to find more of what you may prefer.
3 Outlaw Samurai (wTetsuro Tanba) is real good as well.
Well there are many others but this should be a good start. I'm sure you've made plenty of priceless discoveries since you've posted this thread.

100pr00f, you should also try to buy some Samurai movies at DeepDiscountDVD.com they have some of the best prices on the net, and anywhere else for that matter.
All the movies mentioned above all great oldschool movies, don't forget some of the new movies are great to -
When the Last Sword is Drawn
Twilight Samurai and Roningai are kind of slow, but great movies that focus on character, so LWandC they are not, but Roningai has one of the best endings I've ever seen, when the guy comes walking up with about 20 swords on him, some serious hell breaks lose, I've had to watch the ending like 20 times!
