    I've heard & read many negative things about these DVDs, the main complaint being that they very much look pirated.

    As a rule, I wouldn't buy ANY set of DVDs from China. 99.9% of the time they're bad pirates & bootlegs made of shoddy material, and by the time you find out, it's already too late.

    My advice: avoid them and try to find official sets instead.

    Actually, I have the metal tin set, and it's amazing.

    Yes, that's the one. Quite a few people here have that set, and it's extremely good quality. I started a thread about it a while back, to get people's opinions on it:

    As you can see, a lot of people have been very impressed by it.
    Hope that helps m8 :)

    I've got the tin box set and am only on disc 6 right now :)  My daughter and I get up at 6.30am to watch a couple of episode before its time to get ready for work/school.

    I also have the chinese wooden box set which is on ebay right now. ;)  That is very cool - personally I don't know if it is KO but its lovely bit of kit. Only selling because I need the cash to fund my TFC collecting :) 

    EDIT - the 2nd link is where I got my tin box from.

    I have the wooden box set and it's great! No problems with it at all.
    And I'm actually about to purchase the Headmasters/Victory/Masterforce box set as well.

    Concur, that's the version I bought. You can't go wrong with the price either.
