Added My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, and Princess Mononoke Laserdiscs. All Japan releases.

Star Trek III first Issue DVD.
Star Trek IV first issue DVD.
Star Trek VI first issue DVD. Collecting these for the original audio though its less than 200 Kbps.

Star Trek II First Issue DVD this is the DVD 5 not the DVD 9 reissue that came out a year later i still need that one.
Star Trek V First Issue DVD

I’m pissed that Amazon sold me apparently rewrapped used DVD’s as new. Star Trek VI and IV were in non factory cases and missing the security sticker. The discs look like official discs though. Third party seller fulfilled by Amazon. To charge retail for used DVD’s is scummy.

With the addition of the Uncut UK Open Matte DVD of Eyes Wide Shut, here’s my complete Kubrick Collection.

Added Star Trek II-IX first issue DVD bundled in with directors Cut 2 Disc of TMP. No reused dirty used DVDs, no bootleg cases. Also just ordered Nemesis first issue widescreen DVD to complete the set.

Its too bad TMP theatrical never had an original DVD release and i have to rely on the Laserdisc or VHS for original stereo audio. But i do remember it was Robert Wise who held back the release because he wanted his version to be the only one available. Its also strange the Special Longer version could get a 4K release with original audio but not the theatrical. Which is 7.1 no 2.0 mix.

Added Star Trek Discovery Season 4 Blu-Ray. I have no idea why i keep giving this show a chance, it is something to watch at least while i wait to be disappointed by Season 3 of Picard.

Added Empire Strikes Back 1986 Japan with OBI. Edit: i was outright scammed on this one it was the 84 release with no OBI. Which is worth about 10 bucks and this guy charged me 40, because i mistakenly thought it was new with OBI based on pictures which were lies. He scammed me once but he won’t get repeat business from me. I hate EBay.

Raiders of the Lost Ark with OBI Evergreen
Temple of Doom Evergreen with OBI.
In a lot that also had Regarding Henry with OBI, The Fugitive with OBI. Under Siege II without OBI and a bunch of other Seagal films i’ve never heard of. A lot of junk.
