Ebay has been a bit dry this month when it comes to transformers multimedia however i have recently started using yahoo auctions Japan and i have managed to get quite a bit from overseas including a very rare and expensive DVD set.
First up is something i picked up cheap to use at work.
Transformers Revenge of the Fallen USB
Nothing too special with this one, haven't even installed the software but the usb is pretty robust and will come in handy at work. the usb comes in a foam lined tray with the code to unlock the video on a oversized sim card looking piece of plastic.
Next up is something that should have come out a long time ago
Transformers Animated Complete Collection DVD Shout Factory USA
Shout Factory have finally released a complete series set of this great show. All 3 seasons are included in widescreen along with audio commentairies on select episodes. While i am very happy with this release i feel more could have been included as extra features to make double dipping for seasons one and two more worth while.
Next up is the first of several Japanese items i was able to get from yahoo.jp
Beast Wars Metals Movie 'Convoy's Great Transformation' VHS Pioneer JP
This VHS tape contains the Japanese version of the Beast Wars Episode 'Cutting Edge' and is the only way to get the episode in Japan. This particular episode was selected along with 2 other Toei properties to be part of the anthology Film '1999 Summer Toei Anime Fair' and as such was left off the DVD release of Beast wars Metals. The tape itself contains the episode in Japanese along with promos for the VHS releases of the other 2 films Superdoll Licca Chan and Microman.
For the next item we return to GO!
Transformers Go Sword-Bot Sanjo! Special DVD
More of the same stuff thats usually on GO! DVD's. Transformation guides, Trailers and promos for other Transformers brands (GT and Be-cool).
The next item i have is the newest item in the list today
Transformers Lost Age Promo DVD
This Promo DVD was first given out at the Transformers 30 Years Expo in Japan. The dvd includes the movie trailer, character and toy guide, 30th Anniversary history video, G1 episode 'Atlantis Arise' and the Easy Transformers music video.
The next item is another Lost Age promo
This months Televi-Kun DVD features several of the same videos as the Lost Age Promo above but in addition it also includes Theatrical trailers for all the Live Action Movies.
The next set of items I got as a bundle and still need to go through
I won a collection of 9 cover mount DVD's from yahoo Japan out of the 9, 2 i already have and the other 2 have no Transformers videos but the other 5 have videos and promos from Beast Wars all the way to Dark of the Moon. I plan on going into more detail of all the promo DVDs i own in a seperate section at a later date once i have translated the names of the promos included.
The final item today is one i never thought i would ever get
Transformers Super-God Masterforce DVD Box 2 Pioneer JP
This set was released as a limited edition in the early 2000's and usually goes for a pretty penny online. The set covers episode 25-42 of Masterforce along with 2 of the 5 clip shows from the series. Out of the 5 only 43 'Fight!! Super Ginrai' and 44 'Begin the Bomber Project! The Creation of God Ginrai'. The set is spread over 4 DVD's and includes a 24 page booklet.
Each DVD case has beautiful box art of the Autobot Godmasters and God Ginrai and the Decepticon Headmaster Jr's and Overlord. Each box has 2 DVD's each.
The booklet features the same artwork as the Box cover with a battle in progress in space.
On the back of the booklet is the artwork from the first Box featuring Ginrai surrounded by all the human characters from the series.
The booklet has 24 pages of Model designs for Masterforce which are a mix of designs from the show models and magazine pages covering all the characters in the show. The final pages include an episode guide and production notes.
Thats all for now but i should have more when i get back from vacation.
