Star Wars v2000...any ideas?

Postby rachael7440 » Sun May 26, 2013 5:17 pm

Hi there,

I'm new to the forum and hope that someone might be able to help me........

My husband has decided to sort and sell his SW collection as we have recently started a family and it has fallen to me to value the more obscure pieces.

I have done as the forum suggests for most of the collection (ebay completed lsitings etc) however there are a couple of items I am struggling with...

The first is an Empire Strikes Back paperback by Donald Glut...not unusual in itself I know but this copy does not have the colour pictures inside and subsequently is missing the yellow star in the top right hand of the cover that states '8 pages of colour photos'. It may be worth nothing but I cannot find any reference to it.

The second is a Star Wars Twentieth Century Fox Rental Library V200 tape...I understand the V200 format was created as a rival to Betamax and VHS but quickly died out. Again I have no idea if this is worth anything but would not want to sell on Ebay for 99p if it is 8)


Thank you for any help you can give a newbie :)

Cheers
Rachael

Hi Rachael,

The book is virtually worthless I'm afraid. A couple of pounds.

No idea about the tape. Never even heard of that format. If it's a really old format you may want to contact the guys from Norwich and the surrounding areas as it may still be in use.

You have had a response on the book

Ref v200 format...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_2000

As to value not the foggiest, doubt it is of value but you'll have to keep researching, good luck :wink:

As for Norwich, they are def not wanting to move on modern stuff like that, 35mm cine cameras and film for them :lol:

Hello, I have been looking for a copy of Star Wars original release on Video 2000 from 1982. Is your copy from 1982> Does it have the box and tape? Contact me at danielmgoudreau@yahoo.com if you still have one for sale. Thanks. I am in the USA.
