If you leave your mass graves open for random people to lie naked in, you're doing it wrong.

isn't "friendzone" a made-up thing creepers use to comfort themselves when they get shot down by women who wouldn't willingly lie naked with them in a mass grave?

So I've been trying to track down all the harder to find media now that I have a few bucks saved in the old Paypal account, and I've come across a number of these listings on ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/...=item3a70ec8822

Most all of them are from Malaysia and wreak of KO even though the auctions swear they aren't bootlegs. However they are definitely not the Maximum Entertainment UK DVDs (which incidentally are absolutely NOWHERE to be found anywhere.) Does anyone have any experience or knowledge in what these are? RiD and Armada are some of the last series I don't own, short of old VHS recordings. And with those I don't even have a full RiD because of September 11th. The Armada sets are going for an arm and a leg, even used.

Yeah it's odd. The entire series has been released twice on DVD in the UK and used to be everywhere, but the DVDs are going for silly money nowadays!

Well, the Maximum ones are whatever the DVD equivalent of "out of print" is these days and have been for a while, so it comes as no surprise that they're going for big money when a large like the US doesn't have the show available domestically. I think a lot of Americans got wise and imported it!

I have that DVD, and it indeed has all episodes from RID.
I have to say that it is a KO, which is usually burned from the original source, or a collection of downloaded files from the internet. They play well on most DVD players, but don't expect any bonus content.

Do the discs glass mastered, and do they have any art on them?
How is the overall quality for a KO? Are they on par with say, the Disney 90's X-Men DVDs?
For 25 bucks it might be worth it, considering there's nary a Maximum Entertainment auction on ebay.

I bought a set off of iOffer a few years ago that is a rip of the UK release with the extra's intact. They weren't much though, mostly just the japanese Car Robots toy commercials. The set ran me less than $20 and it's great quality.

I'd still snap up an offical release in a second!

Those actually weren't extras on the UK set, so that's something different.

Oh well, they're still cool to have, and they're still dvd quality. They're not just episodes copied off of tv.

Sure.

I think these were ripped from the first UK release which was supposed to have had some minor special features. The following release had none.

I just checked and I was mistaken. I paid $25 for this set, but I actually paid extra because I wanted a dvd case and accompanying artwork which was extra.

I found some on iOffer from a different seller here. Might be worth checking out.

Well, that cover artwork is definitely lifted from the second UK release of the series. As far as extras went, the UK just had character profiles.

Thanks Shockwave...I checked out the listing and looks like it is in PAL...does that mean the DVD won't play right for Americans? Not too familiar with how that works when it comes to DVD's.

Thread necromancy!
One more question for McFeely (or any UK allsparkers): will the official set work in american DVD players, or a PS3?
This set: http://tfwiki.net/wi...D_Box_Set_1.jpg

I'm not a fan of voting on peoples posts. it just seems very passive aggressive to click 'down vote' and not add anything to the thread. and up votes are exactly the same. to my mind the whole point of a forum is discussion and being able to just easily agree or disagree takes the discussion out of the equation.
