I finally found the Rodan/War of Gargantuas classic media dvd. $40 for 2 movies isn’t bad. Usually go for $80 plus so I’m pretty happy.

Also had a friend who is giving me a copy of vs. the Sea Monster on blu ray with the titra dub. I’m assuming it’s some one of the reconstructions. Can’t wait.

I just got my taxes back and decided to get myself a nice treat, I finished up my sealed Godzilla VHS collection with Raids Again & the holy grail, Orion's Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster. Raids was $48 and Smog Monster was...I can't believe I'm typing this...$98..oof...

I enjoy having the film's on VHS myself. Just wondering why the shrink wrap? Does this slow the degradation process? I just figured most of these have been used and rewrapped anyway. Don't get me wrong feel free to collect how you like, I was just curious.
To all you dub preservationists, my friends, you have my eternal thanks 8-) . Never stop what you do, you are amazing!

I dunno, I wanted them to be as flawless as I could but I also like the video store aesthetic they give the room. They're also worth way more sealed up. And for the record none of mine have been resealed up, it's all vintage from the 80's and 90's (Except for G2000 obviously)

But if it has a BBV sticker on it, it had to have been a rental copy. To my knowledge Orion's G vs the Smog Monster was never released to general retail. All Copies in the wild were are formal video store copies.

This sales spot makes it like Orion intended for a typical retail release. Anecdotally, I can add that it was sold through Tower Records in the mid '90s.
