COBRA MISSION 2 finally coming home



The fourth time is a charm as the Irish say (or something, LOL) and tonight I've finally won Camillo Teti's 1989 Italian/Filipino co-production COBRA MISSION 2 which I've been after for quite some time! Yay! Spiffy!! Resonator (from Cinehound) in Austria had a bunch of Japanese video tapes up for auction quite a while back; I won all of them (including COBRA MISSION 1) except for COBRA MISSION 2. Then I lost out on it again at an auction in Japan. Then I actually WON it at yet another Japanese auction - but the seller sent me the wrong tape! But now, finally, it seems I'm gonna get it; I've won it anyway and I'm crossing my fingers I'm actually gonna receive it this time 'round. This seller is also in Japan.

And another win tonight: Antonio Margheriti's INDIO on widescreen Japanese VHS. I didn't actually think I was gonna win that one and didn't even put that much dough on it but needless to say sometimes you get mighty surprised. Niiiice!

  1. Well done mate! It was me again who took it up to $40 lol. Had a feeling it was you on the other end so when it outbid to $41 I let it ride. It's only fair as you introduced these great movies to me in the first place! If you do see any of the Cobra Mission JPN tapes come up again let me know though haha.

  3. Jack, just noticed that there is a DVD release for Cobra Mission. Available on Ebay France & seems to be an Italian version without any English sub or dub. It has the Full colour cover. Check out the details:

  4. Very cool! Thanks for the tip, Paul!

    From time to time an Italian VHS release of the sequel shows up on eBay but I've never come across a DVD for that one.

  6. Oh, and good on ya for this comment! It meant I suddenly became aware of how late it was and that I'd totally forgotten these auctions myself. I wanted a HK movie called EROTIC JOURNEY and thanks to your post I was just in time to make a bid 5 minutes before closing time (and I won it). So cheers to you!!

  7. Alright, I just checked the link and for some reason it's not working but in any case I got the tape at $20 so that's just brilliant! :D

  8. Good to hear mate! I saw that tape but with no English friendly options on it I decided against it. Glad to have helped!

Yes, we have a comment filter now! It seems most comments these days come from shit spammers in India so there you go.

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
