HOLY SWILL!!! They read my mind! Is this for real?

It won't seem real until I'm holding the dvds in my hands.

WOW! thumbs up to Rhino for the R1 set

*looks at the Maverick guys releasing G2 DVD and twiddling thumbs sat next to complete transaformer episode collection*

WOW! thumbs up to Rhino for the R1 set

Now all I need is to pray for Maverick to match/better this or sell my current dvd player (which is a useless hunk of metal anyway) and get proper multi-regional one.......

Rhino is a US-based company, which holds the license for distributing Transformers (G1, BW, BM, RID and future properties(?) ) on any home video format in the US only.

Pioneer - Japan
Maverick - UK
Malofilm - Canada
Rhino - US
Madman(?) - Australia [Madman only recently aquired the movie rights. It could be only the movie... and/or series. I bet if the TFTM DVD sells well, then the series will come out on DVD there too.]
Not sure about other places, though.

I guess 3 DVD's means that "Villains" won't be included after all, which is good... I guess this means there'll be 5-6 episodes per disc, which is much more sensible...

...for the 98 episodes on one DVD, at around 50-75. I mean, they'd be at least VHS quality. It'll never happen, but I think it would sell well.

It will be included. It says so on Rhino's Info Help page, or at least did the last time I checked (been awhile). The most likey episodes count will be 6/5/5 on a dual-layer disc.

Sorry peeps, but is been a lonnng time since I posted, but the reason being the stupid amount of work I been doing, and the added fact of traveling across Europe having something to do with it as well...

Anyway good news Amazon are taking preorders for the set now!!

Thumbs up More Extras on the Rhino Set!

According to Rightstuf, Inc. ( http://www.rightstuf.com/ ), the DVD boxset will also include the original Japanese opening(s) as well! SWEET!!!


EDIT:

FYI:

www.bestprices.com will carry the Rhino set for 33% off retail when they list it.
