That now is a new goal in collecting :mrgreen: . I've tried to get all the Godzilla BDs that was released here except for 2 [i'm not interested in the US made ones] which now have gone up in price. I remember watching Godzilla on cable for a weekend they had a marathon of them when I was younger and loved them ever since.


+1/+2 to everyone's Godzilla love! I grew up with them but have a kind of potpourri of the films on DVD, Blu, even VHS (sadly, no LD).

Well, I was searching for a LaserDisc player on Leboncoin (it's the French Craigslist) and I found a guy that was selling some Vinyl discs and a single LD disc, so just out of curiosity I checked what the LD title was, and it was this one : https://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/45243
He told me that he was selling it for 5€ so I jumped on the occasion and bought it from him.
The copy I got is still sealed by the way, but I don't see any Obi, so might be a disc that has been resealed.
Anyway, I have no Idea how this disc lost itself all the way here, because the guy selling it didn't knew about laserdisc before buying it, he told me he got it quite accidentally when he bought a lot of Vinyls on a flee market.
I guess this disc is now the rarest one in my collection.

I have had new releases without OBIs on various formats so it does happen. nice find!

if it doesn't then something is really screwed up. You can get a BD release of it can't you? It really shouldn't be a problem though not knowing anything about Canada's governmental agencies I can only assume it would be better than the US.

The sticker on the outer wrap on your disc is what would often be called a "sticker obi" so a nice find.

Thanks for stating that you will update it to the site, everything helps so thanks again.

yeah, what they said. A lot of Japanese releases just have a sticker instead of an obi

Gang Starr AND Shaq on the same LD??!! Wow, I don't know whether to respect this disc or laugh at it.

Well I don't know anything about rap (except that it mainly sucks as a music genre), the only one I know of on this disc is Shaquille O'neal because of Shaq-Fu.

It's unusual for shipments from the US to get held up. I really have no clue what the issue with the other one was. I have it on Blu-ray, although I have no way to play Blu-rays. I'm collecting it on every format. There are even plans in the works to dub a Betamax copy for which I'll print a custom slipcase.

So some may remember the deal on 2 LD players and 200 LDs that came up on the site awhile back. Well my friend and I finally worked out a weekend (mostly complicated by kids having activities) and I will have it all Sunday the 30th. Yay.

Will do.

And yeah it's a hefty drive. I'm driving 5 hours each way and that is with him driving up a bit too. That makes it doable in the span of a single day. If I had to go down where he is at in Texas, I'd really just have to spend the night somewhere which I don't want to do.

14 hours round trip as it turned out. So barely really something I'd want to do over one day. 205 releases by my count. 1 of them is disc only the rest all have the slip cover or box. Quite a few movies I didn't have at all, or replacing a VHS. Of course also a lot that I have on DVD/BD too, but overall plenty I want to watch. I've been worn out so I haven't had a chance to hook up and use the players yet.

Thats one long trip but a nice haul overall.
I want to say I see boxes for Jaws or 1942 and looks like some Criterion, one looks like Close Encounters box set.

Oh yeah, forgot what player it was.
The S1 is a great player, much better than others will say.
Image is slightly on the soft side but then again this is LD and not bluray.
The laser and spindle are only available on that player which makes is a very unique player with no shared parts.
