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 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!

Bearbrick is a spinoff of Kubrick, the great-granddaddy of the adult-collectible Lego-style minifigure market, except with a teddy bear head. The Be@rbrick x(Cross) Transformers line features oversized Bearbricks that turn into robots, in this case a repaint of Optimus Prime! If all of that sounds good to you, this figure will be available on November 15 from Japanese retailers at a price of 5184 Yen. Keep reading to see the photos!
The previously announced QTransformers plushes have an ad up on YouTube... and they talk! (in Japanese!) You can ask Optimus Prime about a subject, and just like on the QTransformers anime, he'll struggle to come up with a decent joke involving that word. And it seems the TV trio of Lockdown, Prime, and Bumblebee can all talk to each other! Keep reading to see the ad.
