    Well that was fast, especially since Carranger isn't even out for another 2 weeks. I hope this means the sets are selling well and we start to see speedier releases. At this point, I might as well not bother watching Gingaman until the official DVD.

    Or, they want to get as much related stuff out while the Power Rangers movie is fresh in everyone's minds.

    But, on the other hand-- yay. That was the next one I was waiting for.:thumbs:

    Yeah, I know. I haven't heard anything about that Garo set since it was announced. I was almost beginning to think someone had gotten confused & was talking about another animated Garo release.

    As for Kamen Rider, I can't even begin to imagine why that's not happening. They've sold almost everything under the sun but that one so far. I know the show's lost a lot of American viewers in recent years, but I don't think there's anyone on here who wouldn't pass up on a legal set from the older seasons, when the show was still serious & there's definitely enough people who like most of the newer ones, despite interest pretty much dropping off a cliff for the last three.

    I will buy any and every Kamen Rider and Sentai release whether it is a series I like or not. So even if Shout! started with Ghost or Decade, I would buy them. When Shout! releases Goseiger, I will buy it.

    They'd be a separate license though.

    And honestly, as cool as that would be, the movies for both Sentai and Kamen Rider are more often mediocre to garbage. I think the only movies I truly enjoy include the first Changeman movie, the Dairanger movie, Abaranger's movie, GoGoV vs Zeek, Episode Final for Ryuki, and Fourze vs OOO Mega Max (at least I think that is the name of the one with Foundation X).
     
  12. Amazon has a listing for Megaranger that still isn't complete, and a lot of retailers have removed their listings, but Best Buy's listing is still active, and its listing now says the set will be released on August 29th. Shout! Factory stlll doesn't have a listing, but if they decided to offer it early to those who preorder, those people could get it as early as August 10th.

    Yeah, I'm betting Amazon and the like have to wait until Shout! gives them the official word.

    Well, the malaysian sets are back, anyway.

    Also, I wonder if it's occurred to Shout that they could get the rights for the side films & specials & release collection sets alongside the main season releases?
     
  17. They haven't been granted those rights. It looks like that happens little by little.

    You mean the Malaysian bootlegs? That's no option at all.

    And Shout! can only get what Toei allows them.
     
  19. Well now the Amazon listing is moving closer to completion since you can actually preorder from them now, and it mentions August 29th as the release date. The only thing is that they don't have the cover art up as I'm currently posting.
