I Hold In My Hand Season 6

The Most Amazing thing came in the mail today, well sort of...
I got Old School TMNT season 6 box set in the mail today from an auction I won on ebay!
The reason it's only sort of amazing is that it's still missing "Once Upon A Time Machine " & "PLANET OF THE TURTLEOIDS Part One & 2", which is very disappointed but was not unexpected as they where not listed as bonus episode for the set.
Which leads me to my next gripe, they where doing so well with bonus features on recent sets, this one has no bonus's at all.
It's nice to have this set for these great episodes like "ROCK AROUND THE BLOCK " & "SWORD OF YURIKAWA", but like I said what it's missing is the frills they've given us with other recent releases, along with the missing episodes from last season's set.
Like I said I got this off of ebay, the seller had no images up for this, so I was a bit shaky but I only ended up paying $13.00 for it regardless so I didn't mind to much, but in the end it turned out to be the real deal.
The Art for the set is ok, the resort to using stock art again from past sets on the backside of the box, and on the DVD's themselves.
The menus are ok, the opening is interesting enough and sets itself apart from past sets, I do like season 5's layout way more though.
The thing that bothers me is that they stuck trailers on both DVD's yet they couldn't stick the missing episodes from season 5 on either one, and we have "RETURN OF THE TURTLEOIDS" on disk one making the flavor of this set even more bitter, because one could go "oh who is this character?, I've never seen him before".
But like I said that's my only gripe, I'm happy that I can now toss out my old VHS tapes that I recorded years ago off of tv when the episodes first aired.
I'd give this set a 8 out of 10 stars: Should have had those episodes.
I hope they make sure to include them on the next set as bonus episodes or something.

Thats cool, getting the DVDs 2 weeks before the release date. It sucks that this set is missing the 2 skipped episodes and lacks bonus features.

3 weeks before, actually.

But yes, is great. May see of looking for it myself next time I'm out shopping (and, if don't find it, the subsequent times - incase it is put out early at any store).

Nice! You have it already!

I do wonder why they choose to leave eppy's out and skimp on extras.
They hold them hostage for a later disc set, unknowing we were going to buy it anyway...
I can't complain about 13 bucks though that's about what it was running on amazon when I pre-ordered it

My bad it is 3 weeks. I remember last year a Walgreens by where I live was selling TMNT 2 weeks before the actual release date.

Yeah, I've had alot of early finds (mostly at FYE, but also have had some at Best Buy); with various DVDs. Some during the week before release, others 2 or 3 weeks prior.

very dissapointing about the no bonus features. I would have really liked to see an interview with ranae. The interviews on seasons 4 and 5 were really fun.

I count Planet of the Turtleoids as one episode because I'd perfer Lionsgate to release it as the full prime time special and not the split two parter.

I'm very glad that the TMNT Season 6 dvd box set is coming out in about 3 weeks!
My favorite episode is "Krangenstein Lives"!

Can we please continue to campaign to Lionsgate to get the missing episodes on DVD?

We best get started now before the next set gets too far into production like this one did.

yeah we need to make a thread with their contact info and whatnot that can be stickied or something. I'm sure krang wouldn't mind.


Awesome that you got S6 early, it was indeed a risky move, I wouldn't have bid on it since I'd have thought it was a bootleg. I need to go buy S5 to be up to date. Looks like i'm going to have to watch the two parter through other means before I get S6 though...

SWEET!

I will be getting all the OT seasons once I move and have more space. Right now I feel so cramped.

I will also be getting a bigger and new TV. My 13 inch TV was bought almost 16 years ago.

Thanks for the info. Now, I know that I'll be justified in boycotting this episode until the whole series is out... This is ********...

That's a really neat looking DVD cover. I like how it looks like an old-school comic book. I liked the look of the old comic covers, like the old Archie ones where they had a small pic of a ninja turtle on the upper left with the price and issue number.

Yeah, the seller was very nice though and had very good contact with me, but it was still taking a big chance.
I'm sort of glad I didn't sell my Planet of the Turtleoids vhs now...
I really wouldn't mind if they brough it out on a single dvd release.
