Five Element Ninjas (aka Chinese Superninjas)

Shaolin Martial Arts
Marco Polo (aka 4 Assasins - pretty sure they showed this one)
One Armed Swordsman
Shaolin Abbot
Shaolin Mantis
Shaolin Handlock
Duel of Fists
Heroes Two
Heroic Ones (might not be a shaw)
All Men are Brothers - Blood of a Leopard
Brave Archer 1
Brave Archer 2
Brave Archer 3
Invincible Shaolin
Kid with the Golden Arm
Chinatown Kid
Life Gamble - (i'd consider this one a rare SB movie, i've never seen a good copy so can't wait to watch it)
Vengeance

iron monkey 2
wing chun
tiger cage 1
tiger cage 2

If you can record some of those via a dvd-r. Life gamble was rare before the Celestial IVL came out in HK. IT is scheduled to come out in the USA this year. House of Traps just came out and it was eng dubbed, which is even more rare. http://www.hkflix.com/xq/asp/filmID....qx/details.htm
