    Hey, anyone know the link? I only remember the sub-order form for the Matrix linked through the G.I. Joe Footlocker.

    Anyone know the official Matrix of Leadership 16 DVD set link?

    Thanks.

    I'm going to sticky this thread so we can use it as a general FAQ and discussion for the Shout! Factory G1 DVDs. We're getting a lot of folks curious about these and hopefully this will be helpful!

    Any reason(s) to buy these considerring I already own the Rhino sets? I know they've been remastered and some animation errors were fixed but those weren't huge distractions to me anyway.

    What advantage do the Shout sets have?

    My understanding is that if the problems don't bother you then there is not a big enough difference to warrant the purchase...someone school me on this however if I am wrong.

    I don't have the Rhino version so I am planning on getting every one of the Shout! releases.

    The fixed animation errors, as well as the removal of the added-in-by-Rhino sound effects (why the hell did they add sound effects anyway??? :sly:  ), and a bunch of new bonus features were enough to get me to re-buy G1 in the SHOUT! Factory set lol.

    So Heavy Metal War is fixed? I sold my Rhino sets years ago because of all the extra animation errors but I would buy this if those errors are corrected.

    Trust me, the Shout! Factory G1 sets -- particularly their Matrix of Leadership set -- are way better than the Rhino sets.

    The extras are entertaining. Several of the VAs talk about what it was like doing the voices for the episodes. The beginnings of the franchise was very interesting on how they took a Japanese toyline and made it popular.

    I kind of like the animation errors. They're funny. Were things like multiple Starscreams being on screen at the same time changed?

    I only have the 1st season of the rhino dvds and season 1 and 2 part 1 of the shout. I did find that shout added scenes that were missing from the rhino release. I noticed it most in the episode heavy metal war. Hope this helps.

    Everyone is comparing the Shout! set the Rhino DVD's, however I have not heard one comparison to the MADMAN box set. This surprises me since those two are more similar of a product being an entire box set.

    This being the case does anyone have any insight here? How does the Shout! G1 box set stack up against the MADMAN box set?
