    I have purchased like 60+ for my son over the past year 1/2 as I showed him some old VHS gobots episodes and he really liked them.The good thing is they have metal and you can find most very cheap :)

    Ah forgot about the NTSC problem, I know I can watch region 1 stuff on my PAL TV, but that's more like a monitor than a TV. Never actually tried an NTSC VHS tape though so I don't know how that'd turn out.

    *edit* ah you'd need a mulit-region VCR or some sort of trickery with a PC and a TV card, I'd try and encode them into avi's or something but I don't have anything on my current PC that can do that :(

    Got a capture card on your PC? You could encode it in NTSC in an AVI format or otherwise.

    I could re-convert it into NTSC on my end if need be.

    I really like the stuff with all the die-cast. Puzzler is quite a feat of engineering for the time.
