New german DVD of Hands of Steel- limited editions X-Cess Label

Just came across a new release of the trash-classic HANDS OF STEEL  aka ATOMIC CYBORG.

The german title is PACO -Kampfmachine des Todes  (fighting machine of death-yeah we always tend to choose the most stupid titles possible,lol). There are other DVDs of this movie out  there, this one stands out for the artwork and the fact that they seem to be very limited editions ( even if Im not sure if the numbers 111 and 222 mean the number of DVDs printed).

I couldn`t find a homepage for this Label X-CESS, seems to be a very small one. I have no experience with or knowledge about those labels, and all the stuff about rights and so on…

With a price of  25 Euros, they are rather expensive.

But I really wanted to post this for the covers, more than anything else.

This has two different variations:

and another one…

this looks more like the old german VHS title:

This DVD contains the german and english audio.

    Holy crap that’s awesome! I’ve actually been looking for this German VHS cover, but hadn’t been able to find it though. But that DVD artwork is a beauty.

    Great stuff man. Simon at ExplosiveAction sent me this a long time ago, and though I’ve seen it, I’ve been meaning to review it. Need to fix that soon.
