Collection Update #2

It's been a few months since i've updated the collection with my latest additions and since last time i have added several common items and a few rare gems that i got for a steal. As before i will be listing details of the special features and episodes:

The first up is:

Transformers Beast Wars and Beast Wars Metals Pioneer DVD JAP

In Japan Transformers Beast Wars had to be split into 2 seperate series as all the episodes where not ready at the time. Between the airing of Beast Wars(season 1) and Beast Wars Metals(season 2-3) the Japanese showed Beast Wars II and Beast Wars Neo to fill the gap while they waited for more episodes of Beast Wars season 2-3.

This set contains all 26 eps of season 1 of the US Beast Wars over 5 DVD. The episodes have the Japanese and English audio tracks.

Transformers Beast Wars Metals Box 2 Pioneer JAP

Box 2 contains episodes 13-26 of the series with the Japanese and English audio over 4 DVD. The only episodes that don't have the English audio are episodes 14 "Where Is the Banana?"and 26 "Remix: I Lost the Banana!"which where clip shows made especially for Japan. The 2 clip shows where added to replace the episodes "Bad Spark" and "Cutting Edge" which where show as part of 2 compalation movies Transformers Beast Wars Special (Bad Spark) and 1999 Summer Toei Anime Fair (Cutting Edge). At the moment in Japan there has been no DVD release of "Cutting Edge" but "Bad Spark" can be found on the Beast Wars Special DVD.
