My Shaw Brothers Collection

I had been thinking of taking a picture of my Shaw Brothers collection and Brian's post inspired me to do it this morning.

It doesn't look like that many titles but it's near 115, I think.

If you look closely, you may notice a few boots in there. I hate bootlegs BUT I found The Magic Blade and Legend of the Bat and another Ti Lung title in a used record store in the area. The packaging looked just like the real Shaw Celestial/IVL releases but they are bootlegs lacking any special features.

And Mad Monkey Kung Fu was out-of-print almost immediately so for that one I had to get the grey market DVD.

As of now, my collection fits neatly on those two shelves -- only a few VCDs in there -- but after my trip to Hong Kong next week, I may have to expand the shelves allotted to my Shaw titles.
