Plowing through the hundreds of LDs and LD boxes slowly but surely. The condition of the latest haul is just amazing, most of it looks like it came right out of the factory. Here's some of the anime and tokusatsu items that I was able to take pictures of.

The items above are just a fraction of the total number of LD boxes in stock, so if you're looking for something in particular, feel free to email me and I can check to see if it's in stock.

Lastly I got an old Victor VHD player in stock this week. The model is HD-V1. I think the HD-V1 was the higher end model of the VHD machines that Victor released. When this one arrived, it would attempt to read discs, and then get hung up and stop trying. Opening up the case, I saw that everything was spinning and moving properly, but after a few seconds, it would just stop and the eject button would light up. So I found a special screw on an electronic panel that had some little tooth-like contacts on it. These were not quite in contact with the metal post that they were supposed to be touching, so after twisting the screw around, contact was made again and the video displayed properly. I also took the time to clean the metal post off with some rubbing alcohol - figured it couldn't hurt. Here's a video of the machine being fixed.

  1. Hi! I like to get a Hong Kong Chinese laserdisc of Heathcliff: the movie! But this laserdisc is in Cantonese Chinese so you wouldn't watch it!
