TMNT Season 10 DVD review thread
 
TMNT Season 10 DVD review thread!

http://mutantooze.org/wiki/wp-conten...MNT80s_S10.jpg

Well our childhood has finally been completed on DVD, so why not a review thread where we discuss the Season 10 episodes, the DVD set itself, and the special features Lionsgate included like the interviews and bonus episodes.

Its been a long time coming for these DVD releases, they started back in 2004 when the 2k3 series was only just entering its second season...and now we just completed them roughly 1 month before the Nick TMNT cartoon starts. So it took us an entire generation of TMNT and before ANOTHER generation of TMNT just to finish the original cartoon on DVD.

Also this release makes me kinda sad, knowing that after this the entire original series is now over...for a second time. Almost the same feeling I had when I first discovered the cartoon was ending back in 1996/1997.

Anyhow, for those who got their copy early, any thoughts?

Why do you keep posting things that are already being talked about and yet; most if not all is made by the same thing from you. Just stay with one thread..:trolleye:

What are you talking about? This is a DVD review thread, those other threads were news threads announcing release dates.

Some people haven't watched the episodes in a long time (if ever), and might want to post about them.

Holy sh- I hadn't realized this was out already. I MUST GO TO THE STORE TOMORROW.

Edit: Whoops, nevermind. I see some just managed to get it early. Couldn't hurt to give a shop or two a call though, I guess.

I've been on plenty of fourms where the news threads have also been used for reviews (like the Power Rangers Shout! Factory releases on Rangerboard), so there's no excuse for your spamming.

CyberCubed 08-11-2012 09:09 AM

The news thread will die and get buried. Its interesting that some people have early releases already. I wonder what the interviews were about and with who.

oldmanwinters 08-11-2012 09:16 AM

I know I'm sure looking forward to Tuesday. I think it's about time I used my Target giftcard.

Don't get disheartened, CC, you can always start threads complaining about how we haven't yet gotten the Turtle Tips on DVD. :twink:

Better yet, I'd like to see someone compile the best quality version of the Turtle Tips, post them online somewhere and allow fans to download them. Since they aren't full episodes but clips hopefully Lionsgate won't take them down.

It is remarkable to think that we've seen the 2nd major era of TMNT animation come and go since Lionsgate started releasing these DVDs. Back in 2004, I honestly thought the first season release might be the only one they would release. I seem to remember that their original plan was to release The Epic Begins rather than the first 5 episodes until David Wise contacted them and advised them against such a stunt.

We've also seen Lionsgate release some incredibly cheap cover art.
They used rip-off 4Kids stock art on volumes 2, 3, 4, 6, Season 5, and Season 8.
(They even used the same Donatello image on three different covers and the same Raphael on Volumes 5 and Season 4.)
On the Season 7 set they started ripping off the 2007 movie poses.

I once thought that they were waiting so long to release Seasons 9 and 10 because they were awaiting Nick to release some new TMNT stock art for them to rip off on future DVD covers.

Yes there was always the fear that they would stop somewhere in the middle. Also after the Season 8 DVD came in 2009 we had to wait almost 2 years till 2011 for Season 9. At the time it didn't seem like the last two seasons would ever come.

I really wonder how the DVDs have been selling. Obviously decent enough for Lionsgate to still make a profit off them.

What's stopping you from doing that yourself?

:lol:
This decision by Lionsgate was all the more baffling to me because the initial Season 1 dvd had great cover art that actually reflected the way the turtles came to be recognized from the show. I'm not sure where that art came from, but it reminded me a lot of the old VHS covers. I remember I just happened to see it at Walmart one day shortly after its release and grabbed it immediately in disbelief. I was 16 or 17 at the time and didn't really care to buy or keep up with dvd releases back then. But from then on I've kept tabs on when new volumes/seasons were released and got all the subsequent releases on or around release day.

Anyways, just got my shipping notice on Season 10 from amazon. I'll have my copy Monday or Tues.

CyberCubed 08-11-2012 07:03 PM

Lionsgate probably doesn't have the rights to use the art from the old covers.

this guy has had it for a week now.His review


CyberCubed 08-13-2012 12:11 AM

I am more excited to simply have this DVD then watch it for the time being...I watched all the actual episode online only a few months ago. I guess seeing them in better quality would be fine though.

SS_Turtle 08-13-2012 04:45 PM

I stopped buying these at volume 4, kept hoping they would release a complete box set.
I kind of hope they still do.....

Killer Moth 08-13-2012 05:15 PM

Personally speaking, I'm torn between getting the Seasons 5-6 sets, this month, or maybe drop one and get 10, instead. I'm leaning toward the former, as 10 is the latest one, so I don't feel guilty about putting it off, vs. a earlier release. Besides, I'm insanely curious about Seasons 5-6, anyway.

Decisions, decisions, but this dilemma I admit I like.
