    Oh cool. Looks like I wont have to import that Blu Ray after all! Hopefully they made a good port of all those HDDVD spacial features over to BD-J. In addition I hope they use all 50GB of the BD disc for the movie and provide the best visual and audio experience that they can.

    Now, if they can get G1 back from Sony, then for the love of God Hasbro, pry RiD out of Disney's stingy hands.

    Reading that link, I'm boggled by the fact that (apparently North American) TF fans still can't understand how a European company could have come to control the worldwide distribution rights to Sunbow's stuff. Well, Loonland bought Sunbow's catalogue, that's how. And until this month, Hasbro didn't own any of those shows.

    But... it says so right there that they got the North American license back from Sony BGM, who held the license from TV Loonland (who were the master owners of Sunbow's stuff).

    Man, was I rather crying months back when comparison pics of the regular DVD and HD DVD of the movie were shown, for it being somethin' I wouldn't be getting at least any time soon (being a PS3 owner). But now... :D

    Friends don't let friends buy MASK on DVD.

    (Seriously, don't. It's awful. I will actively sell you the four-disc first-38-eps R2 set that I have if you want it, becuase it's stinking up my house with it's fetidness.)

    I figure if we're lucky, we'll get season box sets for the lines that Hasbro is actively promoting; TF, Joe, MLP. I know Hasbro recently reapplied for the Jem trademark, so it's probably safe to assume that they're looking into releasing that series as well.

    As far as Inhumanoids, Visionaries, etc., I kind of doubt we'll get season sets for them. I could see Hasbro putting out single-disc collections to test the waters, though - either of the initial three/five-part miniseries they often used to introduce shows, or "fan favorite episode" compilations.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up for a DVD box set of Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines or Glo Friends just yet.

    -hx, wonder if that deal included Bucky O'Hare? Not technically Hasbro's property per-se, but who knows?
