Well, I guess this would be a good time to start watching that series.

So where do Shout! DVDs sell usually? Wal*Mart, I hope.

If it's subbed, I'll be interested. I've yet to watch Victory from front to end.

Nice, I never had the chance to watch TF Victory so this is interesting news for me, I'm almost done watching TF The Headmasters, but I need to get me the TF Super-God Master Force DVD next.

This has to be a mistake.

I mean, there's no way Toei would have given them the original film masters to work with, after having screwed over three different companies (including Shout! Factory) on every Western DVD release of all three JG1 series, right?

I 1000% agree! The masters used on Masterforce (average) and Victory (atrocious) can't be the ones for the possible BD release! This might be just that, a rumor..........

If this is true, I'm not really interested unless we get the rest of the Japanese G1 on Blu Ray. What I really want is TF: The Movie on Blu Ray. We got GI Joe: The Movie on Blu Ray but not TF? Why?!

Erm, its been release on European region twice and US region 1 once. I think its even been released in Australia on Blu Ray too.

If you look on Amazon and eBay, the region free Blu Ray it will turn up at an over inflated price(between £35-£55, $50-$80ish).

Used to see them regularly in the local second hand shops.

A fat chance. :P

The only reason Shout! got to sub the three JG1 series is because there were already existing subtitle scripts for those series for Shout! to use.

Beast Wars Second and Beast Wars Neo don't have existing subtitles readily available because, for 14 years, there were no official DVD releases of the two, much less digital masters for any potential Western DVD releases to use. They only just recently got their first ever DVD releases in Japan, and those sets are mondo expensive (even by Japanese standards).

Not to mention that the two JBW series are own by a different company from the one that created the three JG1 series, and I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro hasn't done business with this other group.

Not in the US, it hasn't.

If I see a copy of the multi region version around I'll pick it up.

Those prices are ridiculous.

Another thing to note about the possibility of Shout! releasing Victory on Blu-Ray: Victory hasn't even come out on Blu-Ray in its home nation of Japan, so wouldn't it make more sense for a show to have a domestic Blu-Ray release before it comes out on Blu-Ray in foreign markets?
