What TF Shows would you like to see on DVD?
- Beast wars 2
- Beast wars neo
Cybertron on three dvd box sets, ep1-17, ep18- 36, ep 37-52, Each one packaged with a member of the recon Mini-cons.
Jolt with box 1, Reverb with box 2, + Sixspeed with box three.
RID is on DVD. Got it sitting on my shelf right now.
RiD already is on DVD (okok, only in the UK but that doesnt mean you cant buy it there)
cybertron complete set
Cybertron and a US release of RID.. Armada and energon can stay off shelves..
I concur with the desire for a RID U.S. release.
Um...ALL OF THEM! Why pick and choose? I'm so glad I have ALL of G1 and BW on DVD. I don't know when we'll even get those last sets of Jem, G.I. Joe, and Armada if ever.
I wouldn't mind all of them...but yeah I'd like a US release of RiD next up.
Since Beast Machines has finally made it out onto DVD the only other TF shows I would buy are:
- Cybertron/Galaxy Force
In the case of RiD and Cybertron it would be awesome too if the original Japanese language track was also included on a potential US release especially GF/Cybertron.
I'd like to see all of the U.S. shows see release (rerelease in G1's case since I skipped them the first time like a punk). Paying $45 - $60 for RID and Arm/er/tron sets doesn't sound very fun, though.
I wouldn't mind seeing some Japanese-only stuff dubbed, but only if we get some of their toys along with 'em.
EDIT: Or I can just finally take the time to figure out how Bittorent and MIRC work.
Id like a US release of RID...what good is a UK release when I can only watch it on my computer? I want to watch it on my TV damn it! lol. Also Japanese Headmasters would be cool.
(1) Armada - Mostly just to have the series finished.
(3) RiD - Never watched any of it when the show originally aired, but wouldn't mind seeing it.
You guys are aware that many north american dvds can be very easily modded to play any region and PAL input don't you?
By chance I already had 2 different models that did this.
My cousins had 2 dvd players and by chance 1 of them had a mod to make it region 2.
It's not as hard as you might think to watch the UK ones over here.
All US and Japanese shows.
TFTM in Japanese.
TFTM in theatrical widescreen cut
New G1 OVAs , based off the new classics line would be fine
I would like it if they released all the shows that aired in Japan first or only, but if they had english subtitles option on the Japanese versions and english dubbed for the American version as well.
Metrodome, a UK based company, has released both Headmasters and Masterforce on DVD.
THESE ARE REGION "0" DVDS! THIS MEANS THEY WILL WORK ON ANY DVD-ROM IN THE US OR CANADA! Metrodome also has plans to release Victory (if they haven't done so already). The DVDs contain the Japanese language track, ENGLISH SUBS, and horrible English dubs done by Star TV.
If you are still concerned about Region "0" here's another tip for playing foreign DVDs. Buy the Region 2 box set, then find the nearest Indian grocery. That's Indian as in India not Native American. Indian groceries often offer customers the service of transfering PAL to NTSC or Region 2 to Region 1 for about a $10-20 fee per disc. The reason they offer this service is that India is the largest producer of movies in the world, but India is on the same VHS and DVD system as the UK. So the Indian grocery will do this transfer service since they stock a lot of Indian movies that people want transfered. But they offer the service not just for Indian movies. So buy that UK RID box set and find yourself an Indian grocery.
Oh, and I'd really love to be able to see a subbed version of the Japanese BW series. Maybe Metrodome will do them next after Victory.
Why is it that any time someone says they want a US release for a DVD available elsewhere, several people jump in and say "You don't need it, just import." If that were to work, I'd just import the Japanese version and say to heck with the US release.
I want a US release of:
Preferably with English dubs made for Neo and II, NOT by Primal and crew. They are okay actors, but I'd prefer to hear some new voices. Or RID's cast.
I never said that you have to import. I understand why people want official US releases with better subs or dubs and stuff. I was just trying to help a few people who may not know about some of the current buying options. But Region 1 is ALWAYS preferable for me.
Masterforce is already out???
