    I found Transformers Animated Season 3 on Ioffer.com. I think it's a UK website and I wanted to know if anyone on this site knows if this dvd is region free or if it wouldn't even work on my DVD player. (btw i live in USA)

    If anyone owns this set or knows if it's possible to watch on my region one dvd player, please tell me. I would like to get it but I don't want to waste my money or time.

    It's a pirate, most likely recorded off TV. Season 3 has never been released.

    It's not going to be region encoded, it's going to be encoded in whatever the DVD recorder or computer (if it's done from torrented files or YouTube) encoded the files as. You'll have to ask the seller for more details.

    I'd stay away from it. Chances are you'll stuff that was ripped direct from YouTube and burned on a disc. I'd just stick with YouTube.

    Exactly. Why pay for a pirated copy of something that's already easily accesible?

    Which set is it? Can you post a link?

    I ordered one off ioffer, and the set I received was great. The quality was pretty damn good.

    It's okay at best. There are all kinds of compression problems... and it's not a clean image either. Being that it's a recording off CN it has all the crap on it during the original airing on TV. If you really want S3 though... it's the way to go.

    Whoever recorded these didn't edit out the ads?? Fail :( 

    It looks pretty nice, but seriously its just a "Homemade" set.. does say you have the choice of NTSC or PAL so if you do decide to order be sure to ask for NTSC for the USA (PAL is used in Europe).. but I would just wait for the real thing or download from Hasbro site or Youtube. just my humble but I wouldn't buy these.

    Good Luck!

    Before this thread gets moderated and locked (or likely deleted)...

    Please don't support DVD pirates. For now, watch Season 3 on YouTube for free, and later when we finally have an official release buy that for your collection...especially if Shout! Factory releases it. I support anything they release because it helps get other properties released, and Shout's Brian Ward is both a TF fan and an animation fanatic and has helped get a number animated properties released on DVD.

    I'm not supporting the set im just asking about it. I also never recomemnded it and I was also not the one who put the link up, I know thats against the rules, but if you think that I don't have the right to ask because this is to borderline Please remove this thread (sorry if its really that big a deal, but didn't actually suppory the set)

    It's all good, no harm done, probably a good thing to know about these sites and what they're trying to sell..there's other members that would like to know this info too, I'm sure :thumb
