I'm not sure how much of a bargaining chip this actually is. LOL.

In total agreement with IAmThePeej. :APPLAUSE: Maybe I'll spend the money I was considering buying the movie blu-rays and throw it at this BWII set.

X just doesn't know what he's talking about. Making assumptions without knowing the whole deal is all he's doing. :roll:

Yeah, I'm not counting on any subtitles on the DVD release. Sigh. Pipe dream.

In the meantime, there ARE torrents of this stuff somewhere with fan subtitles, right?? If I get it and have trouble figuring out the action, I can hit those. :-?

Yes, but they're A) incomplete, having only subs on the first 12 episodes, and B) terrible video and audio quality having not aged well.

wow. that's disappointing. How long have fans had to work on these... not even fan-DUBBING, but simply SUBBING. :sad:

Gads I wish these weren't so pricey. It's like $40 a disc or something. It's not like you get box and minicon with each disc for these.

Lets see, if I charge admission in my apartment, and charge admission at $5 a head.... *does maths*

Well, how would they do anything with good quality source videos? This the very first DVD release of BWII, 13 years after its original broadcast. The only things fans had to work with before now were VHS tapes, yet those do not age well. Plus, given how this show is often considered to be the Beast Era equivalent of Transformers: Energon, there hasn't been that great an interest in fansubbing it once the subbers got to see what it was really like.

Good point about the VHS tapes. Maybe there will be some renewed interest in fan-subbing these.

I think I just found my next tattoo. That is the most amazing image I've ever seen of Lio Convoy


Just in case you wanted to know, it's by a dude called Zouni(Xavier) (If there are like, any minors reading this, I don't suggest looking at his other stuff :oops: ), who sadly, didn't do any other Transformers related art. :-(
Image

Looking for:
Actionmaster Prime's Armored Convoy, just the cab and trailer with it's smokestacks, add in anything else if you want <=D.
ROTF Skystalker's right wing piece (Left axe)and Star Convoy(Encore).
