Would anyone with the capacity to rip PAL LDs be able to help out with ripping this? The German laserdisc set is the only transfer of the international export version (with English text instead of Japanese) outside VHS releases (e.g. the '98 British Carlton tape or the Scandinavian or Portuguese ones).

The DVD release by Astro in 2001 uses the same master, but unfortunately cuts the film back to 83 minutes like the theatrical German version (while also mistakenly keeping a scene from the uncut LD version in English).

If anyone is willing to help out with this, I will gladly pay for the copy of set itself on lddb. Only about 20 minutes worth of scenes from this disc are needed in any case.

So, a new book came out and we learned so much, and it is called, "Anguilosaurus, Killer of the Living".

I wish I had the capability. Here is to hoping someone will step up and lend a hand. I hope my VHS rip will come in handy on this project even if it’s just as a comparison source.
