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!

Before there was Transformers, there was Diaclone. And now Diaclone lives again in the form of the Diabattles V2 set, part of the Diaclone Reboot. Oscar Fung has shared a large number of photos on Facebook of this set. Primarily showing off the many, many ways the components can be combined as both robot and vehicular forms, there's a lot of play and display value in this set. There's also some close shots of the pilots, and a size comparison with a modern Transformers cousin. You can check out all of these photos below!
Master Made has posted new pictures to their Weibo account showing color photos of their Apollo figure, the SD styled Omega Supreme following on from their Metroplex and Trypticon styled figures. These new photos show normal style robot hands under the claw and cannon parts, and a glowing face. No pictures of the alt mode are provided in this batch, but it is a good showing of what the robot has to offer in terms of features. Click through to check out all the photos!
Thanks to our sponsor HLJ, we have news and images of a new release that will feature a reissue of their Transformers G1 Japan edition Fortress Maximus.
