    Laser Disc Set

    I'm quite disappointed that I lost this auction.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390282342264&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOIBUAA:GB:1123#ht_6467wt_905

    I set my maximum bid as $90. At first I wasn't going to bother with this, but since I'm a huge fan and this set is actually quite rare (even if it's not entirely complete, you could probably get the others individually), I decided to go for it. I don't have a laser disc player. They're really expensive. It's a format that wasn't very popular in the west, and was overshadowed by VHS. In Japan though, it was more successful. The main reason I wanted it was the covers, which I could have scanned for some pretty high quality Outlaw Star images you don't tend to see on the web.

    It's a real shame. Bah. Well, I'm sure there'll be an opportunity in the future. Or I could buy them individually which will cost a lot from Japan. I did message the seller asking if he could send some scans, stating I'm the admin of Outlaw Star UK, but whether he'll care or not is another matter. If he did it, I'd be very grateful. (Not to mention, it would save me a lot of cash, even though I'd like to own the set myself.) I would even like the VHS set but that can be quite expensive too. More than anything else though, I want to find the censored episodes.

    I knew I should have gone for $100.

    Good to know you're such a trooper though, I can't imagine myself working that hard for the sake of animeT_T. Better luck next time though!

    RE: Laser Disc Set

    He's responded, and I'm left amazed... Here's the conversation so far, starting with my original e-mail.

    [hr]

    Dear ______,

    Damn, I just about lost the Outlaw Star laser disc auction. If you can't fulfil this request, it's no big deal. I would understand. But could you forward the URL www.outlawstar.co.uk (I am the administrator of the site) to the winner of the auction? The reason I wanted to win this was primarily for the highly detailed covers. A lot of Outlaw Star fans would probably like scans.

    Perhaps if you could scan the covers before dispatching, we'd all be very grateful. But that's a big request, so again, I'd understand if you couldn't do that.

    -Mantis

    [hr]

    Dear Mantis,

    Sorry if you lost.

    No I cannot send you the winners address.

    I'll re-check your request in the morning. My Scanner is small & standard. I can perhaps take some full NICE shots via camera to help you out. As you don't know, that will take time & delay the winning bidders shipment. But I always try to help out ultimate fans of shows I worked on to (Smithstonianize) anime stuff.

    I was the English ADR casting director & script supervisor on Outlaw.
    Don't fret. I have a smaller near-duplicate set of these which I will list after the winning bidder receives his set. Maybe a week from now.

    [hr]

    I would greatly, truly appreciate your help with
    that, and it's amazing to hear you had some
    involvement with the show. So I would assume you
    met with Robert Buchholz and other Outlaw Star
    VAs? Since you were the director, even though it
    is unlikely do you have any of the original
    recordings or other data?

    -Mantis

    [hr]

    So there you have it. I hope to hear back from him soon. Incredible if he worked on Outlaw Star. I doubt he'll have anything still remaining from his work back then (over ten years ago no less!), but I thought I'd ask. This may get very interesting.

    RE: Laser Disc Set

    A new response, and afterwards my reply...

    [hr]

    Dear Mantis,

    Yes I hired Bob & I have all the original approved scripts... Somewhere. I was the guy in charge. You hit the jackpot, found the Bigwig. However, I am an old retired man & you will need patience grasshopper.

    [hr]

    Wow, amazing. I cannot explain with words how
    thankful we would all be if you could find these.
    Don't worry though, as brilliant as this is I am a
    patient guy. I understand, do take your time.

    Best wishes

    [hr]

    One thing's for sure. I planned to stay up all night so I could fix my messed up sleep pattern. This has me pretty excited if there's a chance we'll get the scripts. I won't be getting that sleep tonight for sure now, which is what I wished for. The guy has a very good feedback profile on eBay. I have no reason not to trust what he says. You see that? He hired Gene Starwind's VA.

    BRB, lifting jaw from the floor.

    He's sending over some shots of the laser discs now, though he hasn't taken all of them yet.
