i know what you mean! i used to have most of these with those covers on VHS, including The Thing, Scarface, BTTF.... i finally got rid of my VHS' last year. i wanted to keep them for old times' sake, but space is at a premium (and taken up by Premiums). a sad day.

kids today don't know what they missed - and what we got to enjoy...! ;) :rolleyes:

I never had any classics like that on VHS unfortunately (we mostly just used to rent rather than buy). The only tapes I still have are my Star Wars ones... God knows what condition they're in though. :ohno:

Haha the good ol' days... I sure do miss 'em! :happy:

I’m very tempted to pick some of these up, I’m loving the retro VHS packaging! The Stranger things one was awesome! Like you @Noodles I would love to pick them all up but not sure if I will yet. Hopefully there’s plenty available so we can see them in hand first.

I also just read that they are DVD sized so not quite as big as Stranger things but they will fit on shelves a bit easier!

I got the ones from JB HiFi.
The giddy nostalgia thing wears off pretty quick - and I'm kind of annoyed that I have them now.

I really want The Warriors, but I know if I get one, then I'll want more. :greedy:

You might wanna reacquaint yourself with the size of VHS and how much space they take up...
i was thinking just the same thing... and then i thought about how much of my shelf space a standard premium edition takes up, now, even before you get to HDZeta's new fatter slips, FAC's XL slips, and the like, and wondered whether VHS would take up less space! :confused: :LOL:

the days of HDZeta's original Gladiator release and size are long gone. not saying it's a bad thing, but you could fit more on a row at that size! :)

I have the Stranger Things VHS style edition on a shelf right next to me and, yeah... they're pretty bulky. Thankfully these will apparently be smaller, but still pretty big!

That will be tough mate, they are already temptingly you with the 2 for £25! You will probably think well I might as well get 2 to get the offer then it starts! Lol!:LOL:

These are definatly going to be smaller, it says DVD sized. I’m guessing they are going to be pretty wide though. I’m just a sucker for retro packaging! Lol.:D
