Ooh, er, ahem, sorry. ^^;; I've been taking all comments on this issue quite literally. I'm seriously asking anyone I can get my hands on about their opinions on it. Talked to guys at my comic shop today, going to poll everyone at my anime club at the weekend...

A note: Minerva is a male character (or two, counting his robot body and headmaster component) in the US continuity, instead of a girl with a transtector, and the US char have his vehicle form as a a regular Porsche (?), while Minerva's TT had been modified for medical rescue (backseat removed and replaced).
I'm aware. Which is why I'm strongly against changing the names (for the human characters, at least) in Masterforce.

According to Seibertron the UK Transformers: Headmasters and
TF:TM-Reconstructed are going to be region 0. Which any DVD player in the world can play them!
But remember with Seibertron.com take their new with a big grain of salt.

The Region 0 thing is news to me, but I can confirm that the rest of the article is true. I wouldn't actually be surprised if the discs WERE Region 0, as there's been quite a lot of interest from our Yankee cousins across the pond in importing this set, which certainly makes things a lot easier for them to do.

Certainly makes a lot of sense; in this case the product is both old and Japanese, which means the region-coding wouldn't be being used to protect a local monopoly on licensing for the product. Either that or if there's a US rights holder they may have been cut in on the deal.

Not that region-coding can be forced on manufacturers, as I understand it... it's usually used by a manufacturer or overall rights holder with a global footprint, to stagger releases.

If any of the UK board members who plan or want to buy these discs.
Please confirm for on the other side of the pond if it's region 0 or not.

Why is everyone making such a big deal about the subtitles of the japanese show? Who cares! That article said the best news i have ever heard, Transformers: The Movie will be available in Widescreen!!! The movie in widescreen, WIDESCREEN! Thank Primus is all I can say. This is something that I will definatly have to import, unless its realesed in the states soon.

There are versions of the print with a bit more animation to the edges that were used to make cinema reels. So it should look a bit more expansive, but won't be what we think of now as widescreen.

Well, it will be full 16:9 widescreen, but it's not *true* widescreen, as in, it wasn't originally animated at that aspect ratio. The film's just been finagled into it (but not by chopping any picture off). Though unfortunately, it appears some scenes were *not* filmed in a manner that allowed for this alteration, so the aspect ratio will change to accomodate this. That's a bit... unusual, frankly, and clearly marks the product as a fan-only thing.

Question

What about the NTSC/PAL standards?
Even if the DVDs are region 0 I still not sure if standard American DVD players and/or TV sets could play the UK dvds.
