Sure, mock me now, but I'm telling you, that windmill is taunting me.

Sorry, but even that does not make sense.

If one was to do something like this just to 'test the waters'...then why would you not release, oh I don't know, the First Three Episodes FIRST.

Yes it does if they decided to release three episodes per disc not to mention oddly out of order ones. They are money grab items and I see it all the time with certain cartoons. There's no need to get pessimistic, give it time.

It's a weak move from Nick and even has undertones of disrespect for 2K3 and being seen as a threat to their own DVD sales. If they genuinely wanted to test the waters with imho the best series of TMNT they would have released the entire season 1 in a 3 or 4 disc Single DVD set. It really wouldn't take or cost much to put it on disc and they would sell like hot cakes. With their own series only having 3 seasons so far, they would have to make more 2K3 sets and complete the series which seems good more money for them right? But it would out sell their own from simply having more seasons in the 2K3 series and because they want to be the definitive TMNT of this generation I very much doubt they'd like to be second fiddle to something they didn't create. So the best way to be number one is by doing a piss weak DVD attempt out of sequence tiny few episodes which will not sell well and they can at least shrug their shoulders and say they tried.

Only we ain't buying your BullS*** nick

ARGH!!!!

Nickelodeon gives with one hand and takes away with the other.
Kind of a late reply to this, but yeah, that's probably what's going to be what ultimately bites about this whole thing. It's like what I said before about them throwing some of us who've been wanting this series released in proper form a half-chewed bone they didn't bother trying to clean up and when people don't buy because of that, they'll instead just shrug it off as a, "Oh, guess the interest in 2k3 just isn't there after all and just cancel any other ones we were planning on." They think they're giving us fanservice, but in a half-a**ed way and will blame anything/anyone besides themselves if it doesn't sell as well as hoped.

Remember this is the same Nick who also released the cut version of Turtles Forever on DVD while UK got the uncut version. And they even re-used crappy stock art for the cover while the UK DVD has the proper poster art the 4kids artists created for it.

This is one of the most depressing threads I've ever read.

To sum up our intense feelings of betrayal, defeat, outrage, and bitter loss, I think Charlton Heston said it best:

"You maniacs! You blew it! Ah, damn you! Damn you all to hell!"*

I wish there was some way to contact them about DVDs instead of just getting an automated response or the usual, "There is nothing to announce at this time" stuff you always get.

Apparently only IDW TMNT employees check in on the majority of their vocal fans aka We Proud, We Loyal Few of the Technodrome.

Nick: I am an employed responsible adult with money I will gladly give you for full season sets of TMNT 2003. NOT--I repeat NOT--for these atrocious and insulting 3-episode out-of-order single discs.

WTF, Nick. It's like you want us to hate you.

They even aired the episodes correctly on NickToons, right? And they've got the episodes in the correct order on iTunes, right?

Why is that so hard to replicate for a home video release? I know Nick wants dumb little kids to be buying these, but even a dumb little kid knows when s/he's viewing the episodes all out of order.

Seasons 1 and 2 are all up on itunes in correct order. I imagine eventually we'll see the rest of the show up there.

And in other news, my desire for pride of physical ownership continues to go unfulfilled...

So why not just transfer them to dvd then to test the waters instead of this pissweak excuse of a 'fanservice'???

Like I said they either want it to fail or they might just be that plain dumb. I'm still going with the former...

No one is this stupid. Hell, 2k12 Mikey ain't that stupid.

Can you imagine how awesome the TMNT brand as a whole could be if it were owned by fans instead of corporate executives? I mean, there is obviously passion behind the IDW comics and the Nick toon. But the brand as a whole... the crappy recoloring of the original Mirage comics, the bizarre treatment of reprinting the Tales of the TMNT and Archie TMNT, the horrible 2014 script and production, the crappy Playmates toys, and the complete apathy for releasing DVDs for the 4Kids cartoon!?

Trying not to nitpick, but taken as a whole, the managing of the brand seems to be very poorly done.

Caveat: not that Peter Laird was doing so great in the end, either...
