The new hype seems to be too post a topic with pictures/movies of your collection (even their allready was a topic for this) ...... So I cant stay behind! ..... no movie .... theirfor some behind the scene information ;)

Since a couple of years I have been collecting spaghetti westerns.

The passion for the spaghetti westerns came when I was a child ..... the sergio leone movies allways made a very big impression on me ..... can remember as a child seeing the good the bad and the ugly and the movie was just overwelming! it couldnt get any better! ...... the whole movie would be staged over after with my playmobil.
a couple of years would past .... the playmobil was out of the picture, but everytime when I would see a leone movie ... new qualities of the movie would accure to me and the love for the movies would only grow. I started to dig into the spaghetti western gerne saw the sergio sollima westerns, and went deeper into the gerne .... the sartana's, djang's, sabata's, trinities etc.... a whole new world opened for me .... the world of italian B cinema!

I started with collecting dvdr's from each spaghetti western made between 1960 and 1980.
in a very short period of maybe 2 years I collected more or less all movies that I was after ..... a few titles are still missing, but they were probably never released on video/dvd or broadcasted on tv.

I decided to start to collect some video labels, and short after my goal was to collect at least 1 video copy of each spaghetti western made between 1960 and 1980.
also I want to collect every spaghetti western released in holland on tape (Im dutch .... only i life in switzerland :wink: )

ruffly sad, their were about 700 spaghetti/euro westerns made between 1960 and 1980

My collection is growing every week ..... but i came to a point were it becomes really hard to find/trade tapes I dont allready have .....
Or I need tapes that are so rare that I cant find them ..... or when they are available they have a price of being pretty expensive, I mean the italian tapes!

their are still around 140 titles I am after on tape ..... say that 30-40 I spotted on video and have a price between 1euro and 50euro .... so they are just on a list of stuff I have to buy ..... than their are round 50-60 titles I dont even know if they are released on video. and say 40 tapes that are so rare that the chanses are very small to find them.....

I have around 775 video's in my collection at the moment

since the video collection is growing very slowly .... i am going to expend my collection by collecting also dvd's of every spaghetti ....... my dvd collection is much smaller ...... around 375 at the moment ...... also trying to collect the whole japanese macaroni western bible series.

these are images of my collection ..... most rows are double .... so behind each row of tapes is an other row of tapes

I love the hemvideo/nordic label.
But I dont collect all spaghetties released on the label.
their are too many titles released on the label that I allready have.

their is still 1 title on hemvideo that I need ... Gunfight at Red Sands

also wouldnt mind too have companeros and matalo on the label ..... but I would only take them through a trade

also love the black vtc tapes :wub:

I started once too buy old italian posters ..... but I stopped ..... cant hang them all anyway.
I did frame a few ...... but the rest a roled up ..... and forgotten about.
also a shitty job to scan them.

I did consider to start colelcting the german " neues film programm"

small flyers / booklets printted int he 60'70's
they were distributed monthly and would would be about 1 movie

I bought a few of them years ago for peanuts ..... than I was looking for them again short ago ..... and I saw each costed 5 till 20euro now!
and I know if i start collecting them I would want them all! so over 600 of these booklets ....... hopefully I will bump into a whole stock of them .....
perfect material to read on the toilet.

Cool.
I've got a few of those Neuse Programs as well-though mine are all from the Poliziesco genre (Banditi a Milano,The Big Racket,Barbagia,Roma L'altra Faccia della Violenza etc).Really nice and very collectible,and as you said perfect for looking at when you're sitting on the toilet. :P
