First thing done getting back on eBay after a few months?

.
Grabbing a Betamax mate for my Embassy Escape from New York VHS, of course. It arrived today so now I have "matching" format clamshells for Carpenter's lean machine of apocalyptic kickassery and Humongous (detailed here for those for missed it).

You'll notice that instead of what many companies did, placing a Beta sticker over a VHS spine logo, Embassy had separate but otherwise identical covers that denoted each format. I included the Warner and Thorn EMI clams to show the "in-between" size of Embassy's cases. Because of their unique size, it's especially important to get the original case in decent shape.

If you "ever" come across another Embassy clamshell release of Escape From New York, let me know. I'll take it!

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
