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!
