    I see the whole Takara collection is on DVD for sale, Beast Machines even but no Beast Wars here in the UK. Anyone anywhere know if it ever will get a region 2 release on dvd?

    Thanks.

    I'll sell you an old VHS cassette with some episodes taped off GMTV on it for a fiver.

    Nah, I don't know who has the rights now. They released the eps on VHS around 2000 / 2001 and then there was a single DVD with a couple of episodes that came out around 2004? I can't remember the exact year.

    Honestly your best bet is to import the Region 4 Madman releases - they are by far the best out there. Lots of extras and they're PAL too.

    You can order them direct from Madman (Madman) but they might be a little pricey. I don't know of any other online retailer that carries them. I'll have a little look into it.

    Just make sure you've got a way to play DVDs from region 4.

    Perhaps it's to do with the frequent use of Slag as a TF curse word? From what I read, the UK broadcasts of Beast Wars were heavily edited to remove scenes where the characters said it.

    You stupid poms. That's why Slag is named Snarl now. :p
