An update from Metrodome's Jezz Vernon has arrived at our news room today. After much waiting and speculation, Jezz has taken the time and given us the lowdown on what has been going on with the release for the Master Force DVD box, that was supposed to have been released this week. The following has been taken from Jezz Vernon's E-mail.

We've had all kinds of delays caused by the BBFC - the UK censor, not that they're disputing any aspect, merely that it's been a long time being passed through due to the length of the series. We've all put long hours in on this, it's proved to be an extreme challenge to keep 100% quality control on almost 16 hours of material, the whole purpose of changing the way we did the subtitling was to avoid some of the mistakes in Headmasters.

So hard drives, DVDRS, subtitle tiffs and frantic emails have been flying between myself in London, Chris McFeely in Northern Ireland and Jordan Derber in Tokyo. Chris and Jordan are the two stars of the piece, they've both put in late nights and early mornings to get the subtitles in perfect form for the release. Chris even had to watch the entire series in something like 3 days flat, working around his day job - and we're just about to send check discs over to him to watch the whole series again for a final QC.

So the new release date is set for May 29th, the title should be a PG, it'll be 5 discs and the RRP is £34.99

Chris has provided an excellent commentary on 3 of the episodes and once again written a booklet with episode guide, background and a translation chart for the names.

For anyone that hasn't seen Masterforce I can confirm that it's a very special series indeed, my personal favourite so far.

The only sad news is that due to the costs we were incurring we had to make the decison to leave off the English dub. For those of you that know it, it's a pretty poor affair, fairly laughable in places and really not of the expected quality. Done with ahandful of actors, limited budget and appalling translation - we know it's a curio, but we just weren't in a position to use it.

As far as we know there is no disc set in the world where the english Star TV dub and the Japanese audio exist on the same edition. So when it came down to it we naturally had to choose the Japanese dub, otherwise what would be the point of the whole exercise.

Of course this will put some people off, we're genuinely sorry we couldn't include it - but it just wasn't an option eventually.

News on the 20th Anniversary release of Transformers: the movie -well the main news is that i'm trying to clear the decks and get my arse into gear. It's still on the cards and we may even be a few inches closer to including Scramble City and Zone on the edition - so more news to come!

cheers

The following press release has been sent to the Seibertron News Crew:

IDW SELLS OUT!
Swallow Book Two Among Many Sold-Out IDW Publishing Titles

San Diego, CA (April 17, 2006)¡XWhat do a reborn title, Clive Barker's latest, some transforming beasts, an art bonanza from Ash Wood and friends, and a couple vampire tales have in common? They're all among the latest IDW Publishing titles to completely sell out through Diamond. In addition to the sell-outs IDW recently experienced with SUPERMARKET #'s 1 & 2, the company announced today that the following books are also sold out through Diamond:

  • 30 DAYS OF NIGHT: DEAD SPACE # 1 & 2

  • ANGEL: OLD FRIENDS # 2 & 3

  • CLIVE BARKER'S THE GREAT & SECRET SHOW #1

  • FALLEN ANGEL # 1, 2, & 3

  • SWALLOW BOOK TWO

  • TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS #2

  • UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION


  • ¡§It's great to see quality books met with such positive performance,¡¨ said IDW's Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall. ¡§We print significantly more copies than the initial orders we receive from Diamond. When we set a print run for a book, we try to print enough copies so that retailers will be able to re-order the books through the run of the series. These sell-outs caught us by a surprise, and signal a nice upturn for the industry in general. I also hope these numerous sell-outs encourage retailers to similarly recognize the demand for IDW's books and order accordingly. As much as I love to see a title sell out, I like even more for anyone who wants an IDW comic to be able to easily find it.¡¨

    SWALLOW BOOK TWO will receive a second printing, along with a new cover from artist Ashley Wood. Retailers can order the second printing with item code # FEB06 806. The second print is due to arrive in stores on May 17, the same day the second printings of SUPERMARKET arrive.
