    Hey hey,

    found this on Ebay. I know there's an ebay thread but haven't seen it reported on any sites yet so thought I'd chuck it in the news so everyone got to see it.

    Cybertron DVD Set

    It's a Japanese release by the looks of it but it says it contains English Audio....I'm tempted to buy one. Does anyone know any details about this set?


    UPDATE: Better images of front, back and dvd's at this auction:

    ----If this has already been reported please delete for me, cheers----

    "If I haven't seen it then it's news to me!"

    That looks cool, but I never found Cybertron to be that interesting. I'd rather have the entire Armada series on DVD instead. All the "Unicron Battles" episodes were so well done. Especially Mortal Combat.

    Oh and while we're discussing entire series of Transformers shows on DVD, where the heck is ROBOTS IN DISGUISE?!?! Seriously, is it in DVD production limbo? I know it may not be the best series, but I never got to see the rest of it because of what happened on September 11th. Damn terrorists.

    Allright, I need this set. Where is a GOOD place online to buy a DVD player that I can play any region DVDs?

    Hasbro dubs Car Robots into RiD->Gets Saiban and FOX kids to put it on TV->Disney buys Saiban to reap a green harvest of cash money from Power Rangers->Disney has zero interest in DVD releases of IP's they don't own->No RiD DVD set.

    Get the UK DVD set. Region free DVD players are out there. Walk into an electronics store and ask if they sell them. Or using teh power of teh internets steal the UK version, it's what I did.

    Does this UK boxset feature the voice actors from the American version of the show?

    Of course. Hasbro and Saban wouldn't have spent money on dubbing and retooling the show if they then released the Japanese version.

    Sounds good to have if you are a fan of the show! I just don't like it, but if I did I would buy this:)

    Can you pick up a region free DVD player at a Best Buy or Target or something, or am I better off looking online for one?


    Also, since I'm now committed, where is a good place to buy the RID, Headmasters, Masterforce, and Victory DVD sets? I've had the tapes of the last 3 series I listed for years, and they have a REAL crappy quality to them.

    Robo - there's a UK box set of Headmasters / Masterforce / Victory for £40. I can pick one up and ship it across to you if you like (play.com don't ship to the states :(  )

    Let me get a DVD player that I know will work before I commit to anything, but I may just take you up on that offer. How much is that in U.S currency anyway? LOL

    Also, would this be a good DVD player? I'm terrible with electronics.

    Will this hook up like a regular DVD player, or would I need anything else to hook it up?

    Slightly silly question, perhaps, but I just want to check (cause you never know with these Asian releases) - is the video "clean," so to speak? No TV station logos appearing in the corners or "coming up nexts" scrolling across or any rubbish like that?
