    Thanks man. I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to know if it's different to the point where you notice improvements

    I'm of the opinion that if you're buying a dvd set for the packaging you're barking up the wrong tree. That, and Google is your friend. Anway, I got my set in today as well by standard USPS.

    I've gone through the first two discs so far. I can't speak for any of the changes that Rhino made as I never made it a point to notice them but what I can say is that the audio mix on disc two of this new set sucks balls. The voices are loud where as the music is in the background but then you can hardly hear the sound effects. Disc one wasn't like that at all and I'm wondering if maybe it was caused by me fiddling around with my player program. I'll know more tomorrow.

    If your referring to me I wasn't going to buy it based on the packaging and such. I wanted to see some inside photos of the book that it came with. I used google before asking and seen some photos from another thread I was just trying to see the book.

    The booklet is an episode guide with short summmaries plus a few of the Dreamwave MTMTE bios for some of the more well known characters. Ep summaries also include the name of the writer and the original air date of the eps.

    Residing in Los Angeles, mine arrived early yesterday. Unfortunately Im not home and received a USPS parcel pick-up.

    On the bright side, I picked up mine today! The box is classy!

    As for the pics... I'll post mine tonight (promise)

    i realize you've not had time to watch it all yet.. but I do have a few questions for when you or some one else can get around to them..

    are the commercials included taken from Master tapes or are they simply the same VHS copies as present on the Sony DVD of the Movie?

    are the dodgy Rhino Sound Effects gone?

    are the dodgy Rhino " Visual Corrections " gone?

    I've been trying to find out about these for a while now.. I'd like to buy this and replace my Rhino discs but I'm just not willing to rebuy it if its the same transfers as the Rhino release..
