On the subject of recently-acquired VHS, I picked up a vg condition copy of The Mysterians
I love the RKO version art on this, although I actually prefer the art on the Star Classics
That is amazing! The same one I rented at Blockbuster Video circa late 1990/early 1991. I ended up with the Star Classics, but wouldn't mind having that version for posterity. Great Find!
I've gone back and forth on the concept of collecting more VHS tapes. I mean, I'm not getting rid of the ones I have, but again, they just sit in a box in the garage, and come out occasionally for display. Many are inexpensive, but when I think that there are literally dozens of releases of Megalon, just in English, it sometimes feels futile. I guess as long as I have at least one of each version I grew up with, I'm OK with that, plus the occasional oddity.
I'd love to replace my Amvest VHS of Yog which broke many years ago, and get an English dub of the Neptune VHS Gamera vs Zigra (to complete the set)...but again I have other priorities at the moment.
To all you dub preservationists, my friends, you have my eternal thanks
. Never stop what you do, you are amazing!
