Shout Factory To Also Release Japanese Transformers Series?

By ExVee on Wednesday, February 09, 2011



Shout! Factory's Brian Ward may have possibly tipped his hand to the company's intentions to release Japanese Transformers series on DVD. On his Twitter page, Mr. Ward wrote that Beast Wars is "just one of MANY titles I'm excited to be working on. Anyone speak Japanese?"

This is one day after Mr. Ward dropped the bomb, to joyous fans around the country, that they would be re-releasing the Beast Wars series on DVD.

Big news re: BEAST WARS yesterday. But that's just one of MANY titles I'm excited to be working on. Anyone speak Japanese? #NotReallyAskingless than a minute ago via web

I hope so because I really hate bootlegs. You never know what you're really getting until you get home so it's hit or miss.

I'd bet it was either contracts went finished yet, so they couldn't say. OR the customer service person who answers those emails didn't have the info yet.

I actually sent them an email about a week ago inquiring about their intentions on releasing Headmasters, Masterforce, and Victory as well as the 1986 movie after reflecting on the bootlegs I saw at Wizard World Chicago. I got a big negatory on all counts. Could've been a smokescreen though....

I already have all the Headmasters episodes (English dubs) on DVD thanks to internet downloads. If they release the Headmasters series in digitally mastered (with a new/better dub) I might grab these, if not, then I'll stick with my DVD rips.

I'd get excited, but I highly doubt these will get dubbed anyway... But hey if I'm wrong and Shout goes through the effort of getting them dubbed too, then hell yes I'm buying this!

Yeah, we reported on it earlier this week (merged it into the previous thread). Brian Ward also posted a tweet giving something vague like this. Very interesting, though, thanks for the information!

A post on Twitter by Brian Ward seems to indicate they're going to release the Japanese Transformer series. "Looking for bonus feature material re: TRANSFORMERS TAKARA COLLECTION. Commercials, etc. Got anything? #DoesntMeanImWorkingOnIt #YesItDoes" Source: (link) No telling if i... read more

But the dub is the only way to enjoy 'I give my life for earth'!

I'd definately get those, especially if they are subtitled. Anything to replace my Headmasters and Victory dubbed DVDs... BLAH!

More Generation 1 Japan News
The official QTransformers website has updated, and the latest set of cast reveals include Thundercracker, Skywarp, and Arcee! While prototypes have been shown for the Seekers, it's currently unknown if Arcee will get her own toy or simply make a TV appearance - but with the popularity of QTF in Japan and the fact that nearly every other character that's appeared on the show has a figure, it seems a fair bet. Keep reading to see the photo!
For the past five years or so, TakaraTomy has partnered with the Super GT racing series to promote "Kids' Walk" events designed to boost interest in the sport. This year, the giveaway for children who tour the raceway and pits with their parents will receive this Team Mach GT-R Optimus Prime figure. While not technically the Mach 5 from Speed Racer/Mach Go Go Go!, it could be a pretty good substitute for you at QTransformers scale - if you can get a hold of one. Keep reading for more info!
Just in from Charahobby 2015 C3xHobby via Snakas are many new images of the new Takara Tomy Transformers products on display. Get a look at lots of Transformers including: QTransformers figures. United Devastator. Legends Blackarachnia, Nightbird, and Slipstream. Diaclone Reboot line with Diabattles and other figures being shown. MasterPiece MP-27 Ironhide, MP-25 Tracks and MP-26 Road Rage. Transformers Adventure TAV-21 Optimus Prime and other figures. Read on to see them all now.
The episode title translated pretty cleanly this time! ...though it's possible the better translation might've been Adults-Only. This week's QTransformers stars Decepticons Soundwave, Starscream, Shockwave, and of course Megatron, as they discuss Kiss Players. Luckily, the episode seems largely safe for work. Click through to see!
Ever wondered about the new kinds of Transformers introduced past 1986? Pretenders? Headmasters? Powermasters, or Godmasters as they're known in Japan? So does Lockdown. Drift helps lay out the post Season 3 Japanese TV series in this week's episode of QTransformers II, and while Lockdown is typically confused, Bumblebee seems to think it's all just one big bizarre adventure. Click through to see the episode (in Japanese without subtitles)!
