Only one week remains before the final Chapter of G1 cartoons "Victory" is released on Region-Free DVD.

Madman will be releasing the final chapter of their Japanese Transformers Collection on Wednesday May 14th 2008 for AU$59.95. The collection is region free, meaning it will play on any DVD player in any part of the world.

The Disc will contain all 32 Victory episodes spread over 4 discs, with Japanese Audio and English Subtitles. Artist E.J. Su, best known for his work on the IDW Transformers Infiltration, Escalation and Devastation Series has produced the cover art, and extras include the Victory Manga issues, Japanese Toy Advertisements, Character Art Gallery, and Toy Galleries from Seibertron.com itself.

Preorders can be made by clicking here, or you can order the set from the 14th of May 2008.

Yay! Oh, you misspelled "Madman".

Here's some questions:

1. What are the differences between this one and the Metrodome one?

2. Will Zone be released by Madman as well?

3. Will Madman be releasing all three sets together (with Zone) like Metrodome?

The Metrodome Takara Collection set is much cheaper than buying the Madman separate collections...

By, "differences" I meant "feature and specification differences".

Since I dont own the Metrodome sets, I do not know. I'd say the extras on this collection will set it apart from the Metrodome release. The collection is PAL, but playable in all regions in the 4:3 aspect Ratio. I believe that Metrodome's set has the same 4:3 ratio.

Sabrblade wrote:2. Will Zone be released by Madman as well?


Zone consists of one episode. I doubt anyone would release it.

Sabrblade wrote:3. Will Madman be releasing all three sets together (with Zone) like Metrodome?


Madman have already released their region free Headmasters and Super God Masterforce Collections. If Madman are planning a complete amalgamated collection of the 3 series, then they have not had any press releases or info about it as yet.

Metrodome released Zone as part of their Takara Collection 3-pack set. It was added to the final disc of the Victory series sold in that set.

My question: is the Victory series any good?

I love G1. I like Headmasters, sort of (I have not watched it all yet). How is Victory in comparison?

That's why this site is the best when it comes to resources! TFW2005 can s**k it! Also, question: :?: Exactly which Madman Transformers DVDs are Region Free :?: Cuz I have yet to see anything exclusively japanese besides Scramble City and I would like to get on this horse.

The 3 Japanese G1 series released by Madman are all region free:
- Headmasters
- Super God Masterforce
- Victory (with Zone)

As well as their Complete G1 Collection, and their 2 disc 20th Anniversary Movie Set.

Unfortunately their Beast Wars sets are Region 4 only, so you would need a region free DVD to play the Beast Wars DVD's.

And it would seem that this Victory Set will include the single episode of "Zone" as well. I missed that tidbit of info first time round.

Like many overseas currencies, the Australian Dollar is running very well against the US Dollar.

US$1 will get you about AU$1.06 at the moment. It was only a year ago it would have gotten you AU$1.30, and about 4 years ago it would have gotten you over AU$2!

Are the episodes complete on each release? Cuz, Metrodome's Headmasters set had the episode footage shown before the title card cut.
