Shout Factory To Also Release Japanese Transformers Series?
ExVee - 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 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.

Someone should email Shout later to find out, I will try later

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!

Before there was Transformers, there was Diaclone, and we'd be remiss if we didn't talk at least a little about the new Diaclone Reboot merchandise on display at Wonderfest yesterday. On hand were representatives of the pilot troop builder packs (some of which are already up for preorder!), the power suits (types A and B likewise up for order), as well as a prototype for a transport vehicle for the power suits. Diabattles also showed off an upgrade unit giving boosters and giant cannons, as if Diabattles V2 wasn't armed enough! It's a lot of great looking stuff, so click through to check it all out!
