Haha I'd also probably cave if they went for £10 or under. Personally there's more cons than pros for me with these though... I already own the majority of the films, and they take up a lot of shelf space! The only pro is that they look really cool.
And then you go and post an awesome photo like this and I start to get super tempted again! :ohno::p
Yeah they do take up quite a bit of room. I had a bit of free space for a change so I though why not display them. I have a few of them aswell mate, I shouldn’t be double dipping but the packaging tempted me! Lol!:)
Haha thanks mate! Maybe try one and see what you think!:D

Yes, they look 'cool' - in the same way that VHS tapes look 'cool' - and for a film collector or a collector of One Clicks with miles of shelving these are small beer and there will be no issue with display.
Display shouldn't be a problem my end either with my current arrangement of 130 metres approx. of shelving space.

Never bought films on VHS tape back in the day although I did buy those TDK snap-shut rigid plastic black SVHS blank tape cases on which I applied gold number stickers to the spines 1 - 420 and they did look the biz but also took up a heck of a lot of space! Take them down from the attic every Christmas to show films to the children - films that have not yet been released on Blu-ray but year on year as more and more classics come to Blu-ray the tapes are slowly becoming obsolete (lol).
The liking for this VHS style packaging in 2018 is amusing in an ironic kind of way - what with the almost universal dislike for jumbo Amarays and these 'VHS boxes' probably taking up the same amount of space on the shelves . . .
That said, it's another fad and a valiant attempt to keep physical media 'fresh' and alive . . . speaking for myself I will hope to do with these what I do with the far better selection in the HMV Premium Collection range and buy them in one of HMV's "2 for £15" promotion.

For anyone interested in the Mandy release, HMV have updated the listing to include a poster, bubblegum card and sticker, like the rest of the releases.

Good to know, I was hoping this would be in the 2 for £25 but as it’s a new release I can understand why it isn’t.

It was when they first listed it, and priced at £14.99. It didn't last too long at that price and included in the offer. I missed out on that but still ordered. Can't wait to get this one.

Ah I missed that, I should have put a pre-order in then! I will still pick this up, it isn’t a bad price for a new release.
