On the verge of buying an alledged copy of the uncut
« on: October 01, 2018, 02:18:10 pm »
Edit Inclusion: Just gonna leave a hint there that it might be a scam, since he "knew about the extra scenes", and said he had been scammed before and wanted the money first. Well, would suck immensly to do such a heartless thing. I'll keep you updated.

So, I finally took action and created an auction for buying the "uncut version" of the Land Before Time in Sweden. I thought, what the heck why not?. I was amazed that the same day, or the day after I got an response! And interestingly enough, the name was of finish origin.

So, I asked him again, are you certain that it is an TV-recorded VHS from the early 1990's? With extra scenes that are not in the commercial version?

The response was: Yes, it has the extra scenes. I have the tape lying around here taking up space. I will sell it for $$ is that okey?

So Now I'm just hopefully waiting for the copy to arrive. Damn, I wish with all my heart that we can get this long lost version recovered.

The storyboard that was uncovered has made me all the more sure I've seen the real deal. Also the ending with "now we'll always be together" makes the ending more complete like I remembered it.

I have high hopes now guys, Let's hope it doesn't get stuck in the mail or that the seller don't stop responding.

Take care

Hey! All of what you described sounds quite intriguing, but it's good to be cautious. Let's hope! :DD

Hey, LostInTime, didn't see you for more than three years!

*triggered*

FFFIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*smashes head on rock. in Sharptooth's style!*

well, answering in the same day is absolutely suspicious, like guys search for LBT uncut every day.

But well... *fingers crossed. In LBT4 Gang's style!*

I didn't get it, did he/she sent to you screenshoot from movie so you made sure it's actual from uncut version? If yes - can you post it there, please?

I'm going to hold out and be optimistic, considering we got the original script very recently. Crossing my fingers! :D

I'm gonna keep a healthy dose of skepticism with this.

Hi Guys,

The purpose of the post was to share this amazing happening, but I realize it could be a bit early.
The thing is that I got the first response Thursday and the last response Friday. So it has been 4-5 days since last response, so I'm eagerly waiting and having a bit of doubt.

I believe he is probably busy and I don't think a deal for 10 euro is the highest priority.
The good news though, is that I have is name (username seems to be his real name) and where he lives, so I will try my best.

Right now it's just a waiting game. I'll update when something happens. Cheers!

Hey, this would be an amazing find! I'm not very optimistic about finding anything, but one has to believe sometimes. Hope he comes through and that there is some serious magic on that tape ;)

The tape is from the early '90s? Hmm, doesn't sound too likely that there'd be anything on it unfortunately. We've been through this same thing so many times but once again I hope things turn out differently and that there are actually deleted scenes in the tape.

I wouldn't get too excited over this as it's a long shot. But then again the script was found just earlier this year so I suppose anything can happen at this point.

Fingers crossed something comes out of this!

The bad news is that the finish seller hasn't said anything more yet. I suspect he might be a scammer.

The good news is that another seller contacted me today.

He also says he "knows the scenes" I'm talking about is in his VHS, and now I just hope he will send it.
He says it might be here tomorrow. He was originally thinking of sending it untracked, but I told him that I would pay him extra for tracked shipment.

Hopefully, it will turn up tomorrow. Finally a deal that goes through ;P
I'm sick atm but if I wasn't I think i'd feel nervous haha.

as I understand, no single screenshot with missing scenes was shown? No single proof was sent, not counting some speeches?
Hmm, I would not buy anything without a solid proof.

Nevermind.

I do agree with the above statement. You're going by the seller's word, but I guess if you really don't have a choice... so be it. Life's all about risks. Personally I'll be uncomfortable with anything online+money related.

Sending tracked is a good idea, and even then you have to understand that mailing always carries an inherent risk. There was this famous case last year where $10K worth of rare PAL games were lost in the mail and was only recovered after the story broke.

I agree with both of the two latest replies. I handled this rashly. I should have demanded more proof before I went ahead, but I was caught in the moment of wanting and did not think about doing things correctly. I realize it's a big responsibility finding this sought after copy, and I was not prepared. It has lots of emotion and debate to it, and I should thread carefully.

I believe the LBT and the gang of five community deserves that this copy is retrieved in a proper way. I can't demand proof of a copy before buying it, when it's on the way.
But I have asked for more proof, something like a description of a scene. I've also given more information about what they have allegedly sold me.

I suppose I got caught up in the idea of owning the copy and the rarity of it, and did want it abit too much. I don't want to release it if people don't feel right about it.

I hope for there to be missing scenes, but I won't be surprised if there isn't.

If there isn't, then I have a topic I want to put up.

So what's the status of this right now? Did you get the tape?

Not to be a negative Nancy here, but I think you got taken for a ride.  Either that or its some real good coincidence that the package got lost in the mail.  Could happen, I've had it happen but the seller felt bad and I said it was only $10 and didn't come off as a person who wanted to scam me on ebay because I saw all the pics and everything beforehand and she had 100% feedback.

Sounds like you're setting yourself up to be ripped off.
"As long as humans continue to be the ruthless destroyer of other living beings, we will never know health or peace. For as long as people massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, those who sow the seed of murder and pain will never reap joy or love." - Pythagoras of Samos

"Gaia, the beautiful, rose up, broad blossomed, she that is the steadfast base of all things. And fair Gaia first bore the starry cosmos, equal to herself, to cover her on all sides and to be a home forever for the blessed Gods." - Hesiod
