I think he meant on DVD or something.

Anyways, they've released the first 5 episodes on DVD, but I don't know about the rest.
I'd like to say it's been nice knowing you, but I'd be lying.

Those have just been released in Canada, and the are not the first 5 episodes, they are just 5 episodes. They are not in chronological (sp?) order.

Rumor has it that the 2 seasons were suppose to be released in the USA sometime in 2005. Consdiering that it's now April and Rhino.com doesn't have any information about BM on it's website, who knows. Personally, I'm not holding my breath.

And don't buy any of that crap off Ebay, they are all bootlegged DVD's that don't work. :wall:

First of all, that BM dvd that was released in Canada was indeed the first 5 episodes of the series. It had The Reformatting, Master Of The House, Fires Of The Past, Mercenary Pursuits, and Forbidden Fruit on it.

Secondly, I did read somewhere that said that Rhino's contract with Sunbow and/or Hasbro did expire, so all TF and G.I.Joe projects that Rhino were working on has been scrapped. This means that Beast Machines Seasons 1 and 2, Armada Season 1.2, and G.I.Joe Season 2.2 will most likely never be released.

Paramount now owns the rights to make TF and G.I.Joe dvd's, but it seems that all they're focused on right now is dvd's of the TF Energon series and the CGI G.I.Joe movies.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems like if you all want all of BM on dvd, then those "crappy" bootleg dvd's on Ebay are your only outlet.

So I think it's a rumor. Not sure though.

It's gone. It's dead. Good riddens.
The animation was good, but the designs, and stories blew da big ones.

Speak for yourself, I liked that the TFs finally had non-humanoid modes (they're ALIENS, not earth-made robots) and I also liked that we finally had an ambigious sturggle, where we didn't know who was truly good and bad. Really, this is the kind of war G1 should've been.

Well, if you guys want to see it real bad, I got some Beast Machines vcd's that I want to get rid of. They'll play on any computer and most dvd players. Just hit me up on PM if you want them.

The quality is decent. It's best if you view them on your computer instead of on a tv with a big screen, as the picture quality isn't that great on big screens. But on a standard computer monitor, the quality is quite good.

Hmmm, I don't think my Computer plays DVDs & we use an Xbox as our DVD player.

They're not dvd's. They're vcd's. They'll play on any computer that has Windows Media Player.
