Transformers News: Re: Transformers Armada - Complete Series DVD Series

The Unicron Trilogy Begins

The fight between the valiant Autobots and treacherous Decepticons continues, but the fate of the war may lie in the hands of the small, power-enhancing Transformers known as Mini-Cons. With the aid of the Autobots, the Mini-Cons escape Cybertron, but their safety is short-lived after an attack cripples the ship and forces it to crash land in Earth’s solar system. Now, after millions of years in stasis, the Decepticons have been alerted to the Mini-Cons’ whereabouts and it’s up to the Autobots to protect them as well as all of humanity.

Ah, now THAT's the Dreamwave art you incorporate into DVD releases a decade later.

Awesome as it is, I'm pretty sure I already have that image as a wraparound cover or insert or something, so I'll just let 150 fans whom Armada made a stronger impression on have those lithographs while I wait for the best deal on the set. I'd just graduated from college when Armada started, and the nostalgia I get from this and Toonami's recent addition of Samurai Jack is making me feel really old right now.

Hate to say it but I doubt this or any show pre-Animated will see a Blu-Ray release. I don't think they were shot in HD and might not look good after up-conversion.

Glad someone chimed in regarding the resolution. Good to know Animated was the first HD series.

Now, if we can pull for an Animated Blu-Ray release. *cheers* :KREMZEEK:

Did the announced Blu-ray release of Victory get cancelled? I just searched Shout!'s site and couldn't find it.

Naturally, it was a fake listing.

Just as well since it's never even seen a Blu-Ray release in its own native country.

Pass. The content isn't any improvement over my Rhino DVD sets, so I'd only be buying it for the packaging, which is just old, recycled art from the Dreamwave era.

Though, reading the back description in Jim Conrad's voice feels really appropriate. :P

And, I find it funny how the fact that the Autobots have to protect humanity in addition to protecting the Mini-Cons looks tacked on like it was an afterthought. "The Mini-Cons are the most important thing in the world! They must be protected at all cost! ... Oh, and uh, some humans, gotta save them too." :lol:

They did. ALL of the art in this set is recycled from then. None of it is new.

I don't suppose they went back and fixed any of the many, many errors in the show?

I might get this on sale or something.

No one ever did for the English version. Only the Japanese version got fixed, but Hasbro doesn't own that version and doesn't care enough to want to.

Let's put it this way, even if you pretty up a piece of turd, in the end it still looks and smells the same. Armada got some of the worst treatment here in the West. Never mind the fact that it was unfinished animation, but the fact there were so many errors with the script that it was embarrassing.

Sadly, it always seems that whatever Transformers series we get from Japan, there's also some weird production issues with it. If these guys offered a new transfer with both English and Japanese language with subtitles it would be a definite purchase for me.

The same goes with Japan when they get our productions of Transformers, you end up with weird stuff like in Beast Wars where Air Razor is a guy or the fact that DVD collection is missing 2 episodes (Bad Spark - which came with the BW2 Movie and Cutting edge)

Then there's Transformers Prime in Japan, where you don't even get the 3rd season.

And how! The production both the Armada and Energon dubs were so rushed and so terrible that it's become a chore to sit through either.

Save for Cybertron, which did not have a rushed production and most of its changes seemed deliberate.

Same with RiD, as a lot of its dubbing issues were out of the dubbers hands thanks to 9/11.

Not sure dual-audio could work unless the time duration of the English version was equal to that of the Japanese version, but I'd definitely take a subtitled release with the Japanese audio.

Though, just as long as Hasbro itself stays far away from the subtitle script since their interference with the subtitles of the Shout! Factory Japanese G1 series DVD sets ruined those subtitles.

That's because those two episode weren't treated as part of the Japanese dub's episodes, being treated as feature films instead. Their removal is also was "Where is the Banana?" and "Remix: I Lost the Banana" were created.

Apparently, TF: Prime's Japanese dub bombed in the Japan that releasing season three over there may not be worth it for them. There's also the matter of Transformers Go! succeeding Prime season 2 in its stead, what with the altered ending done to episode 52 of TF: Prime. ;)
