    On Tradera, some sellers accept international shipping but far from all of them. If you look on an auction and press on "Frakt och betalning" (means "Shipping and payment") you get some more information. It's a small site in comparisson to Ebay but it's the best auction-site here in Sweden. Here's a link to the Laserdisc-category.

    Not that much up right now but if you wait some time alot of nice LD's will appear and usually they go for less then what they do on Ebay mostly because Sweden is a smaller market.

    So if you already have Ebay, there won't be much to buy on Tradera. It's quite cummon that Nintendo-collectors buys a copy of Mr. Gimmick here (an Nes-game that was only released in Scandinavia) and stuff like that but for LD's, you'll probably think Ebay is a more flexible choice. However, the shipping is usually expensive when I buy LD's from other countries and therefore I usually rather wait for it to pop up on Tradera.

    Thanks for that Nis, I'll have a look, because you never know. It never hurts to have another option open.

    Arrived this morning, yes, Sunday morning!

    Post  DGTWoodward on Sun Dec 12, 2010 9:06 pm

    These came today...

    Forbidden Planet front cover.
    Forbidden Planet back cover.
    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea front cover.
    20,000 Leagues Under The Sea back cover.
    20,000 Leagues Under The Sea gatefold.

    I am really pleased with 20,00 Leagues as I have never bought this before and I really like this film.

    This I think is the very best of first phase BATMAN movies. Very dark and not really for kids. There are things that i do not like, but I will save that for the review Smile

    Thanks Marc.

    I think you need this Daron

    I bought Mononoke Hime today on Ebay for $23 (shipping included). Not cheap, but I was ready to pay way more for that one.

    These arrived today from Andrea in Italy - http://laserdisc.altervista.org/
    I did a swap so only cost me the price of postage Very Happy I'm really happy with them.

    The Alien movies completes my set, another 48hs completes the set and the bond movies are a great addition to my collection. Plus some other great flix.

    Great haul Marc.

    What's the movie next to ALIEN? I cannot quite make it out. Also, is that GATTACA at top-second from left? Mine is yet to arrive from eBay but it would be interesting to compare notes on this one, as lddb shows that it is a "high rot probability" candidate.

    But the reason I ask is that, that has been said of TRUE LIES, BATMAN RETURNS, PHANTOM MENACE and the Definitive STAR WARS BOXED SET, but mine all play just fine. The only two so far that really have shown it are 5th ELEMENT and ERASER. So just 2 out of 230 titles, that's a pretty decent average...that's only about a 0.9% failure rate.

    I wouldn't mind picking up a few more BONDS myself actually.

    The movie next to Alien is Silver Streak. I'm a big fan of Gene Wilder & Richard Pryor so this is a great addition.

    I will hopefully get round to watching Gattaca some time soon so I will let you know.

    These arrived Part ONE.

    Post  DGTWoodward on Mon Dec 27, 2010 12:08 pm

    Arrived just the right side of Chrimbo, recent wins from eBay...

    Disney Classic Bambi front, and back.
    Classic Disney Snow White front, and back.
    Blade Runner front, and back.
    Speed II front, and back.

    Always liked Disney as a studio, despite WD himslef being a racist tyrant.

    This is the only time I have ever bought SPEED II and that's fine with me, PQ is good and it has a stonking AC3 score.

    What can you say about Blade Runner that has not already been said? Classic movie.

    These arrived Part TWO.

    Post  DGTWoodward on Mon Dec 27, 2010 3:05 pm

    More arrivals from eBay....

    Gattaca front, and back.
    Videodrome PAL Uncut front, and back.
    Train Spotting Criterion front, back, gatefold and occasionally hilarious 'Translation' insert.
    King King Criterion front, and back.

    Unfortunately, my copy of Gattaca is farily badly rotted - something of a gamble on my part as the lddb lists it as 'high probability'. Still never mind. I am dead chuffed with the two Criterion titles, which I got for about £1.50 each. King Kong has the first ever commentary on it.

    And just because I am a total saddo...

    STAR TREK - THE MENAGERIE Parts One & Two front, and back.

    I have included these because I grew up with Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the rest and I could not resist a few episodes of ST to go with the movies.

    Also, on really anorak note the alien on the back cover is a Tellorite (as seen on "Journey to Babel") called Ambassador Gav. He should not really be on the sleeve at all because he is in neither part of THE MENAGERIE nor is he in THE CAGE, the original pilot from which these two episodes were made. Embarassed

    Saddo anorak moment over!

    That looks very colourful. I must admit, I have never really seen much anime, bar AKIRA and GHOST IN THE SHELL.

    Having said that, I used to really enjoy MARINE BOY and BATTLE OF THE PLANETS (Gatchman?) when I was younger, thinking about it, they'd count wouldn't they?

    BOTP, seeing it now, was really quite dire. Having a HANNAH-BARBERA robot explaining what was happening during the bits that they cut...and yet strangely it all worked at the time.

    And they looked really cool too!

    Marine Boy is an animé, but Battle Of The Planets is a American Cartoon-series based on an Animé. I was rather young during the huge Pokémon-period that took the world with storm. It was the late 90's and early 00's version of TMNT and it's still very popular for some. The Animé itself (especially the movies) are poor but are fun to watch for me because it brings back so many memories. It was also among the first Animé to be shown in Sweden together with Sailor Moon.

    I watch alot of Animé right now. Everything related to Animé is interesting to me with a few exceptions. I don't like it when it all becomes high-tech like in Metropolis, it just makes me feel "meh". I really love Kawaii, such as Azumanga Daioh, School Rumble and Lucky Star. That makes my life worth living.

    Yes, I understand this was a load of anime episodes cut to pieces and having crappy US parts spliced into it...I would really like to see this version though

    Great, Marc.

    I worried about this with mine too but as it turns out, it was OK. It also happen to be one of the best LD transfers I have seen so far. Very nice indeed.

    I don't think you will be too disappointed with it, let us know what you think Very Happy .

    As I have said, I am not really into anime as you clearly are...but Niss, that box is a thing of beauty, so much better than the piddley little DVD effort!

    Such a shame that LD was over taken by DVD, as DVD has so little collectible appeal.

    Nice set mate. Well done.

    Thank you, that box set is one of the most adorable box sets ever released on any format but it wasn't cheap. The box set itself costed about $60 which isn't alot, but the shipping on the other hand, darn was it expensive! The auction said that the shipping to Sweden with EMS costed $153, but once I got the invoice it costed $140 or so. A bit cheaper then I expected but that ain't saying much! but believe me, I much rather have that box set in my collection then $200 in my pocket and that's for sure. Here's a link to the auction, if someone would like to see it.

    Actually, I used a Dvd-copy of Spirited Away as an example how small and weak a standard Dvd looks in comparisson to the Evangelion-box set. The LD box set contains both of the Neon Genesis Evangelion-films and alot of extras (see the link that was in the end of my post). Spirited Away was actually made after the last Laserdisc so I don't think it's been released on any other format than Dvd and Vhs, possibly Umd though. Wink

    Post  DGTWoodward on Sat Jan 08, 2011 5:30 pm

    This hit the matt this morning....

    Dr. Who - Terror Of The Zygons: Front Cover
    Dr. Who - Terror Of The Zygons: Back Cover

    The description on eBay said that it was a re-cut 90 minute adventure, but that was not correct. It is, in fact, the 4 full and uncut episodes that make up the whole story. There were other Dr Who LDs from this particular seller but some went for silly money. One fetching £77!

    What I like about this one is that it is the only won that I won but I got it for £4.99, it is the full story, it is uncut...

    And it is not yet avaialable on DVD!

    It is quit a good story though, and Elizabeth Sladen was a really attarctive woman then (and actually, still is now!)

    Great box set there Niss. I've always been interested to know what was inside that big box set.
    And nice work there on the Dr. Who there DGTW.


    So I went to Osaka for the past weekend and hit up a couple of places that sell some lasers.
    Shop One: Pic 1 Pic 2
    Shop Two: Pic 1 Pic 2 Pic 3

    Took about an hour, but I went through every disc the shops had. Picked up a couple.
    Lot 1
    Lot 2

    Both shops had most LDs at 300 yen each. The first shop had a 30% of sale as well.
