Got mine in from Amazon a couple hours ago!

It looks awesome! The wheels roll good, too, so I had to revert to being 8 for a moment and take it for a spin around the living room. :D

The lid just sits on the top, though, and is easily knocked off if you're not careful so don't get too rowdy with it.

The only glaring error is "Yosagi" on the back on the box. >_>

Do the discs get scratched sitting in the case?

So it doesn't come with a booklet of some sort? Most of us were thinking that's what this was.

Mine's coming in on Thursday.

One of my hopes is that this sells well enough that Shout Factory or whoever owns the DVD distribution rights to the 4Kids series decides to release a series set of the 4Kids show.

TheCanadiandrome 11-13-2012 07:28 PM

Yeah I should have mine by Thursday also

I HATE that via this release, Lionsgate essentially said "Yea even though you already paid a crapload of money from our previous subpar releases, we had a bunch of backstock which we don't want, so here's a plastic van to put them in for another 80 bucks. Oh yea, we're not gonna fix anything like the episode order, lol that would require actual work. Just give us your money"

Jester 11-13-2012 09:09 PM

People still use mouse pads?

Powder 11-13-2012 09:23 PM

Were we supposed to man up and just use the desk surface in 2012? I never got the memo. :trazz:

Uh...no. This release isn't aimed at the people who picked up the DVD singles.

This release is for people who NEVER picked up the old DVDs or the new fans/kids watching the Nick show who stumble upon this in stores.

Sure some people will double dip, but there's no real reason to bother unless you just want the Turtle Van case.

Here's the review some of you may have already seen on Rangerboard:

I found several copies of the Complete Series today in Winnipeg!! The copy I got was $99.99 but after buying that I found one at Costco for $30 cheaper. It's a Turtle Van with all the discs stacked together (no packaging) and a booklet listing all the episodes and features. Exactly like the prior original releases from what I can tell so far.

The book could've been proofread:

Leatherhead, Terror of the Swamp was simply Leatherhead
The Ice Cream Cometh???
Donatello's Badd Time (understandable)

Some of the episodes (at least on my laptop) look grainy but that could be VLC. The S2 episodes look great so far. I noticed Disc 1 doesn't have chapters so that's annoying. I'm checking out the special features too. I guess the extra episodes count for the three hours. Planet of the Turtleoids is all one episode even if the chapter breaks are in the wrong places. I'll post more as I go along.

Just curious are the bonus season 10 eps still on the first disc?

nelodiavolo 11-13-2012 11:23 PM

Yes! My package came in today as well...Still in the box though. I'll get to it later this week. Pretty excited to rewatch these classics. Last time I seen many of these was in the 80's.

Oh and as a gamer, I still rely on a good mouse pad. Desktop surfaces are terrible IMO...well that and my mouse was 130 bucks, so its pampered.:tlol:

Yup!! We have them twice. :p I have yet to check and see if "Plan Six From Outer Space" appears twice as well since it shows up on the last episode of Season 3 and IIRC at the beginning of the Season 4 set originally.

You just reminded me of another mistake: The book mentions that the missing episodes were from Season 4. Technically Once Upon a Time Machine could be from S4 since the Technodrome was in Dimension X but Planet of the Turtleoids definitely is not.

could someone post some pics of that booklet? I'm curious to see if its as detailed as the ghostbusters booklet...probably not lol...but i'm curious to see

I agree. As much as I'd love that Turtle Van boxset, I'd rather spend $100 on a vintage Playmates Turtle Blimp than buy extra copies of the same episodes I already have! EPIC FAIL on Lionsgates' part!

CyberCubed 11-14-2012 12:56 PM

How many times does it need to be explained that this Turtle Van boxset is NOT aimed at the people who bought the single releases!

Are some of you stupid enough to believe that everyone bought all the individual DVDs that started back in 2004? Do you realize how long ago that was?
