I went to sell my THX widescreen VHS copy of Raiders on Ebay, but I would be lucky to get $2.00 for it.

I can't vote since I can't get to my VHS copies.... don't ask. It's a thread worthy of the Otter Farm.

But, I would probably give them away to some poor soul without a DVD player.

cant play in your poll....'cause you didnt give the option to "keep them". guess I'll be the only one to keep my tapes. I like back-ups...just in case. just label me one of those "better than nothing" kinda guys. or maybe just a pac-rat.

I'm gonna keep my LD of Last Crusade, and maybe frame it and hang it on a wall.

Might pick up Raiders and Temple and do the same

Throw them away, our pawn shop isn't buying Vhs any more. All of my friends are online and will be buying the tri-ology along with this forums buyers.

Our garbage man checks our 3rd floor garbage chute, to see if I have thrown out more vhs. I am not actually throwing them away the garbage guys get it, for their collection with cover art.

Sold the LDs a year ago for $100. Regretted it instantly but I feel relieved now they’re finally announced.

$1.00ea on eBay and I'll be happy for a couple reasons...

A. I got them for free to begin with.
B. My videos on eBay have become like a yard sale. You can only expect a buck or so for used VHS.

Sell them .... probably get enough on eBay for them to buy a cup of coffee (well, maybe not at Starbucks, just some corner coffeeshop)

I've got the LD's but will probably keep them since they aren't worth much right now.

I think you're overestimating the masses who use Ebay. I'll bet you can do better than that, considering many people don't know that it's coming to DVD this year.

Sold my tapes a couple years ago when I got rid of my VCR.

It's been a long wait.

I just put it up for $5.99 - emphasizing THX, widescreen, etc. I hope you are right.

As for the poll I can't vote because I didn't see anything listed for the bootleg dvds

Now would be the time to sell your LDS and VHS off on Ebay before, everybody starts hearing about the dvd release.

I'm keeping my WS VHS set. We've got a spare bedroom that we're making a guest bedroom, and I'm putting together a small VHS movie library for any guests. One thing I'm doing is making sure they're all OAR. So far I have SW, IJ, BladeRunner and a few 4x3 titles.

I'm pulling out all of my Indy VHS tapes and using them as ribbons for gift wrapping.

My Indy Laserdiscs will be used as dinner plate coasters/trays.
