Essential VHS release for the serious collector

Antonio Margheriti's cool TORNADO (1983) is up on eBay at the moment. And it's not just any release mind you but the ONE to get: the fully letterboxed Japanese VHS! There is no DVD release of this and it's the only real proper VHS release in full lbx format. Ron Kristoff and Mike Monty are in it. The auction runs for another two days and so far there's only one bidder. Go here.

  2. That IS a good price. Some of those tapes were more expensive when, uh, the rest of us didn't already have them. LOL. Thanks for the tip, mate. I've already got it. Did you see Midnite has SOLDIER OF FORTUNE up for auction on Jap. vhs? Start bid 30 dollars. I've already got it so won't need it. xD

    1. The Lucky guy was me:) and I a thought it would go for far more myself. Did you snatch the Black Cobra 2 tape Explosive?

      Du har en meget bra blog Jack:)

  3. Congrats on the tape, OOP. Some of these tape have begun to go for far less than what they did a year ago.

    I certainly hope Explosive got BLACK COBRA 2 as I refrained from bidding because of him!!! ^_^

    Tusind tak, OOP!

    Congrats on the Tornado OOP! I have that myself, along with the matching Tiger Joe.

  5. Actually, I'm pretty sure I made a mistake. I've got part THREE, not two. But it's not biggie as I've already got the Danish vhs of BC2 from a recent swap with a local collector. And my BC1 is also on Danish tape.

  6. Ahh okay then. Well if you get yourself a Danish part 3, I'll buy your Japanese one ;)

  7. Btw, Simon, have you got THE LAST HUNTER on Jap. VHS? One of the Western sellers in Japan had it up for action along with TIGER JOE 1-2 years ago but I only made a bid for TJ as I though, "I've got HUNTER on DVD". Arrrghh!! How stupid. I could kick myself in the head for that now.

    2. No I don't have that actually, but I have the Australian VHS.. and the DVD in scope is plentiful so I'll be happy to get that one day. As much as I love Japanese VHS, I'm only getting the ones that improve on the DVD release or if there isn't one at all. If I start picking up copies of City of the Living Dead on VHS because of the cover art I'll be in a world of hurt lol.

  8. Haha. I know what you mean. But even though I have the DVD I would have loved to have had it to complete the trilogy on Japanese VHS.

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.
