    That's great news. I never reordered again after they cancelled the initial wave of orders, I decided to just pick up the individual sets.

    I'd like to believe the source for these are different, but I bet it's the same source material from the Pioneer box sets, which sucks. I own all the Pioneer boxed sets, paid a LOT of cash for each of them (300 USD plus another 300 on import taxes) and was extremely disappointed with the overall quality (video/audio/inserts/box art). I'm not touching these again unless they remaster all of the episodes and pack it with a decent booklet, perhaps with all the Terebi Magazine art from 87 to 1992.

    It's in pre-order status right now, but will eventually be a wdiespread release. It's the box set from Shoutbox collecting Headmasters, Master Force and Victory.

    My copy just arrived. It is in a rather long box because the lithograph is actually really quite large.

    Hopefully I'll get mine tomorrow. I won't be able to see my wife & child until tomorrow night, so it will help pass the time until then.

    I was kind of surprised to see it already. I wonder if they shipped them early to those that pre-ordered the first time around or if they were just ready to go early and will be shipping them all out.

    Good for you guys. I preordered mine the first time and never got around to it the second time. I figured I would do it after christmas since it was going to be out Jan 2, but now that people are receiving it, I would have loved to have received it before christmas. Thanks shout factory. :(

    I've got the Madman release and it is superior. It has English tracks for Headmasters and Victory. Got an extra if anyone wants it, $75 shipped.
