Superman Japanese Laser Discs

Superman-Laserdiscs-feature

From the “Why Did I Buy This?” Department comes these three Japanese laser discs of Superman The Movie, Superman II, and Superman III. I don’t even have a laser disc player, and it’s 2013! Why did I buy these? I first saw them on Supermania78 and really liked the style and the pictures. Secondly, they were dirt cheap on Yahoo Japan Auctions, except that winning them for the equivalent of about $3 U.S. does not take into account that international shipping is really expensive and laser disks are heavy.

Anyway, they’re pretty nice, with great attention to detail and typical amazing Japanese graphic design, except the Superman II one I got must be an oddball because it doesn’t seem to match the Superman II versions presented on Supermania79’s site, nor does it seem to match the U.S. releases on eBay. Maybe it’s another U.S. release with just an obi on it with the Japanese? I don’t know…

Anyway, here are the pics.
