    I remember first watching the series when I was in still in HS in 1998 and I absolutely hated it. I've since rewatched it a couple years ago and it's without a doubt, my most favorite series now. Great pacing and storytelling IMO, which when you're a kid, you just want non stop robot action...but that's where Victory comes in

    Guess that means I'll be throwing away my region 4 Masterforce and Victory. The english isn't too bad, but it makes me quirk my eyebrow they keep going "Hoi!" or whatever.

    I haven't seen Masterforce or Victory before, so I'm looking forward to checking those out.

    im not sure if anyone else has these but I have the hilariosly bad Star TV Hong Kong dubbed versions of these:lol 

    Too hilarious to not have but I cant wait to get the real deal. I bought these 3 sets for about $50 bucks together on ebay several years back when I was an idiot and before I'd gotten back into collecting. Didn't realize the claimed English audio track was horrible Hong Kong english. lol. Here's a brief list of the hilarious and yet endearingly awesome translation errors they made

    Rodimus Prime = Roadimus Prime
    Blaster = Billy
    Twincast = Blaster
    Soundblaster = New Soundwave
    Matrix = Power Pack
    Metroplex = Phillip
    Blurr = Wally
    Fortress Maximus in spaceship mode = Spaceship Bruce
    Jean = Meekon

    Thats just a small list of it all. Please Shout Factory give me a better release than these. :)

    I have the Region 2 Metrodome sets of HM/MF/Victory and Zone. I wouldn't mind a Region 1 set at all, just let Shout! give us the option for original soundtrack and subs.
    If Shout! can get BW2 and Neo I'll really be impressed.

    I just hope it's subtitled properly. I love TVNihon's sub.

    One of the worst things they can do to a sub is change the names. I want to see "Convoy" not "Optimus Prime" and "Go Shooter" not "Siren" for example. It's very distracting when subs try to "Westernize" the names instead of translating the damn show.

    I actually prefer the westernization personally. Those are the versions of the characters I identify with and can more easily understand. Id prefer Optimus over Convoy any day.
