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'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!

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!

Thanks to primalxconvoy, we've got an in-depth look at some of the Infobar phone Transformers from the au x Transformers project. These were the subject of a crowdfunding campaign in Japan, from which you would get a set of three figures decoed as Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Bumblebee. A movie-inspired Optimus Prime is being released to direct retail. We have photos documenting the unboxing, as well as showing the individual figures, with size comparisons. Plus images of the instructions (in Japanese) and some details about the toys. Keep reading to see the whole works!


Amazon Japan has posted preorder listings for a Blu-Ray collection of Fight! Super Robot Lifeform Transformers and Transformers 2010 - the Japanese versions of G1 Seasons 1-2 and 3, respectively. It's priced at 19,440 Yen (about $175 by the current exchange rate), is due for release on December 6th, and is region-free... but not HD-quality. Keep reading for details.
It's been a while since the first information hit about the collaboration project between mobile phone provider au and TakaraTomy to make transforming toys based on their Infobar handset. The first of these to be generally available is now up for preorder on TakaraTomy Mall. The Optimus Prime "ANNIN Version" is based on the white variation of the Infobar phone, and the robot elements are inspired by the movie series Optimus Prime. This product is expected for release in December, and is priced at 5400 Yen. No word on the availability of the red Optimus or the other characters shown previously.
