If you’ve been collecting movies for as long as I have, you’re guaranteed to have an old VHS tape or two lying around that you just haven’t replaced with a shiny new BluRay for some reason or another. Maybe you’re a purist and you love the look and feel of the videocassette, or maybe you hold onto a certain tape because it’s never made the transfer to a digital format. I fall in to the latter category. I’ve got a decent collection of films, but the centre of it all is the originally released, theatrical version of the Star Wars trilogy. If you’re a fan, you know why I won’t give these up. So when I saw that there’s a guy who’s got a stockpile of functional VCRs that he’s pimping out, movie-style, I got excited.

These hit me in the childhood nostalgic feels and I want one.
