    Hey. I'm a huge beast wars transformers fan, I own all the original dvds and the austrailian release dvds and most of the action figures. I know there's a beast wars 2 and beast wars neo series, but I don't know how to obtain them. Have there been official releases in english/japanese? Where can I buy them? If no dvds are available then are they available to watch online for free? Any info would be helpful, thanks!

    TFCog.net has done dubbing of some of the episodes, but there are probably subtitled versions somewhere out there.

    The series haven't been released with subs officially (indeed, in Japan, neither one has even been released on DVD, just VHS), and no fansub group has ever successfully completed the series. An old group named... Centosaur...? something like that... managed the first 12 BWII eps and the movie years ago (these are what you'll find on Youtube and other video sites), while a chap named Grifter Prime who was working on them over the last year has managed only about 7 episodes of each series so far, and hasn't had anything new in over six months, so I'm assuming the project's dead.

    Yeah, I went on this crusade a few months ago, found basically what has been stated above. I'd LOVE to be able to get these all on dvd or any other format, subbed. I'd be willing to pay for it and probably a good bit. However, I'm not interested in paying for dvds of a little bit of it now, not knowing when or if the project will be completed. I know, the revenue now will make it possible for the program to continue and all that, but I'm looking for completion, preferably NOW!

    I can't find a set of dubbed BW Neo or BW2 cartoons!! Based on this topic, it seems they don't exist and I was wondering if anything has changed since January?

    I have a set of all the episodes but they are in Japanese. Does anyone know of a program that could subtitle the episodes as I watch them?

    Not that I've ever seen in entirety for BW Neo. A search today shows that not all the episodes subbed are up there either unless I'm missing it/them. The first few yes, but not all 52 eps.

    If you can somehow provide HQ raws, I'm pretty sure there's a lot of people willing to help you do that. I applaud Grifter for his efforts, but even his raws were pretty bad, but I guess it's hard to get anything off of VHS tapes really. TV-Nihon I hear is interested in the show, but can't get good raws.

    At any point in the series, does Galvatron or the other guy explain how they talk so well between their teeth?
