Shout! Factory wrote:TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – Headmasters -- Optimus Prime lives again, the energy of the Matrix has been released and peace reigns on Cybertron . . . but all that is about to change with the startling arrival of the newest breed of TRANSFORMERS warriors.

TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – Super-God Masterforce -- Following their victory over the DESTRONS (a/k/a DECEPTICONS) at the end of Headmasters, the CYBERTRONS (AUTOBOTS) depart Earth, leaving behind only a small group to protect the planet from any future menace. But when the powerful DESTRONS return to an unsuspecting planet, the CYBERTRONS must come out of hiding to defend their human friends once again — only this time they’ll be unable to do it on their own!

TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – Victory -- Victory is the third and final installment of this Japanese trilogy— introduces four new factions to the TRANSFORMERS universe. Each group comes equipped with its own unique power and the ability to combine to form much larger, more powerful TRANSFORMERS, making each and every battle even more epic!

Finally!

Though it's a bittersweet feeling, I've been waiting for this for a while.

I kind of find it a bit hypocritical that they keep using "Cybertron" and "Destron" on the packaging when the subs use "Autobot" and "Decepticon".

I still wanna know the retail release date (not the online release date, which we know is 1/10/2012).

I was starting to think this got canceled. Not a big fan of having to read TV but I've always wanted to see how G1 played out in Japan.

I don't know man, since this set was announced, I have not heard anything about individual releases. I have a copy (DVD) of the Masterforce series with the UK english dub, and the new Headmasters box set. Victory is causing a problem for me too.

No kidding. Going by the price of Headmasters alone, you'd think it would be less expensive to get them individually rather than the whole set.

According to this, it was supposed to have been released this week, but unless the stores near me didn't stock it, it wasn't. It could have gotten held back when this did, but I never heard about it.

Shortly after that was posted, that statement was retracted (though this was mostly for the Complete Collection, but since there's been no such announcement for Masterforce I guess it's safe to assume the same for it).

What the-?!! :shock:

Look at the list of DVD contents near the bottom of the page. There's a ton of typos and other weirdness all over!

These episode titles seem to have been taken from a bunch of sources such as the Metrodome/Madman DVDs, TV-Nihon's fansubs, and TFWiki's episode lists.

"The Master Sword Is In Danger" is missing the word "Sword"

Goshooter's name in Masterforce episode 6 is parsed "Go Shooter".

The term "Godmaster" is consistently used when Hasbro said that they would be using "Powermaster" instead.

"A Fierce Battle!! The Autobots Are In Trouble" mispells "Fierce" as "Pierce".

"Expose The Decepticons’ Dark Trap" is missing the word "Trap".

"The Underground City Of Terror" should be written as "Big City - Underground Terror" since the city itself is neither underground nor terrible.

All six clip show episodes (minus the fourth one) that were broadcast in Japan are listed here, in spite of them not being included in the Metrodome and Madman DVDs (because they aren't necessary).

Though, if they were gonna include these, why leave out the fourth? If it was done on purpose, why not leave them all out?

"Assemble! Combiner Warriors" is written as "Transformer Warriors Assembled".

"The Strongest! Victory Saber" is missing its first half, reading as only "Victory Saber".

Heh heh. Funny you mention that, since Singapore was one of the places that got these shows broadcasted in terrible English. ;)

I thought exclusive to their store meant it's not coming out at retail at all.

There's actually no place to buy these locally for me now, since our HMV locations are all going out of business, and I doubt Best Buy/Future shop would stock something so obscure... Well, I'd gladly buy it on Amazon too, so if it's not *only* available from Shout Factory, I don't have to worry.

The Beast Wars complete set started off as an exclusive to their site, yet it came out to retail many months later.

IIRC, Darth Bombshell told me that this set will also be coming to retail much later on as well.

I know it was retracted. It said so in that post. It didn't specify, however, whether or not it was for both of just the Complete Collection only, so I just assumed it was for the Complete Collection only.

Yes, the insert that came with the Headmasters set said that this would be released in retail. (It did say "coming soon", so no set date was announced.) In any case, since the complete sets of G1 Transformers, GI Joe, Beast Wars, Jem and Reebot were made available shortly after their exclusive period, it's reasonable to assume it will, too.

The box design is amazingly well-coordinated with their G1 and Beast Wars sets. Will they be putting out similar sets for Beast Machines and Animated?
I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.

Beast Machines, I could see. Animated, however, is doubtful, since that series is own by both Hasbro and Cartoon Network, who broke ties with each other after Animated ended, splitting the rights between them. This is why season 3 has yet to be released on DVD.

How about RID/Armadaverse?
I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.
