Weapon: Gattling Gun
Amazon has recently listed a new pre-order for Transformers Armada-Complete Series on DVD. Great new for Armada fans who missed the previous DVD releases from Rhino back in the mid 2000's. According to the listing this is being offered by Gaiam Americas, however there is a good chance Shout! Factory is actually the studio behind the set. Shout! Factory has been handling most Transformers cartoon home releases for the past few years, and Gaiam Americas is a known distributor for Shout! Factory. The set is priced at $31.49 and scheduled to release on March 11th, 2014.

If it's remastered/touched up/has bonus content, ok. If not, my Rhino set is good.

And "Bonus Content" ought to be a Minicon or three. Not doing that is a total missed opportunity.

I doubt it'll be touched up any differently from the Rhino version since the video source originates from Japan instead of the U.S.

And since Hasbro was content with having Rhino release the flawed footage of the U.S. version on DVD, I doubt their stance on this has changed. As Hasbro likely only owns the English version, I can't see them reaching out to Japan for the better masters of the Japanese version for this when they already have a version they figured was adequate enough to air on TV/release on DVD the first time around and likely deem acceptable now still. ;)

Oh, how I would love for the Micron Densetsu footage to be included in this as well.

What I'd especially love to happen would be for just a full-blown subtitled release of Micron Densetsu in and of itself, just so I could watch this show without the English version's subpar acting and scripting. Come on, fansubbing groups. You know you want to. ;;)

Based on past experiences of Hasbro and Shout! Factory, it'll most likely be the exact same flawed animation from the original broadcast of the English version.

What kind of special features would you want? Directors commentary? It's been 11 years I doubt they would remember anything useful. It's probably too expensive to try and get the Japanese audio so that leaves interviews with the voice actors, last time they did that it was roundtables that were less about the shows and more about the individual actors.

Ooh. I like the cover, actually. I'd only double-up if we could get a Blu-Ray version. Can't believe they haven't put out Animated on Blu-Ray, knowing they have it in high-def. Maybe now that Prime is over they'll slip that into the lineup.

I can think of a lot! Cost aside, there's plenty of ideas:

- Galleries of Dreamwave's Armada MTMTE Profiles
- Japanese Audio w/ subs
- Japanese openings/endings
- Toy advertisements
- VA and Production crew commentary
- Hasbro team commentary (they'd certainly have some fun stuff)
- Pre-production art/stills/prototype images
- A pack-in Minicon (wishful thinking, I know)
- Even a "marathon version" of the show without the intro and ending to each episode would be fun
- There was also a tie-in game and comic, some of those creators may have contributions.

There are obviously challenges to several of these things, as you've pointed out, but just the straight re-release of the series feels lazy to me. I want to support Shout, but I just can't in this instance.

wow. Great list of extras off the top of your head. They need you on the team!

Really enjoyed the Armada comic, actually. I thought all the minicon character development really enhanced the Armada franchise and storytelling.

Out of that list the Minicon seems the most doable. FYI commercials are hard to do because if they have human actors the faces usually have to blurred out due to rights issues. Check out on You Tube some of the old G1 commercials, they range from hysterical to disturbing.

You would still have to pay royalties to the actors and I think there are certain laws pertaining to child actors or actors who were children at the time.

Yeah, I was hoping they could pay them for the appearance AND any use of the commercial on DVDs as a lump contract... but seems like you're right, now that I think about it. Bummer.
