@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

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.

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.

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.

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.
