If shout ever got the liscense to release the 2001 Rid cartoon series on DVD's. Their is no doubt in my mind they'd use the USA broadcast episodes & digitally remaster them,then put them on DVD's. THE PROBLEM IS THE USA BROADCAST EPISODES HAD SOME MISSING EPISODES,MISSING SCENES & DELETED DIALOGUE DUE TO THE Sensitivity OF 9/11.
In the UK & Canada the 2001 RID broadcast cartoons episodes had no missing episodes,no deleted scenes,no deleted/muted dialogue,because 9/11 happened in america & other countries broadcast channels/viewers were less sensitive towards these 9/11 type issues.
Years ago Metrodome released the 2001 Rid complete series on DVD's in the UK-----> This version had all the episodes,all the scenes,all the dialoge words. Nothing was deleted for 9/11 viewership sensitivity issues. So if your a die hard 2001 RID cartoon series fan,this is the DVD version you want.
If anyone wants the 2001 Rid complete series,All they have to do is head on over to the Amazon UK site & type in Rid Transformers DVD's. http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_nos ... rid%20dvds
On the Amazon UK site their are dozens of new & used Rid DVD's selling at decent low prices. The used ones,cost 66% less than the new DVD's.
Yes,Their is the UK DVD region code but this is a simple fix. All you have to do is play the Rid UK DVD's on your computers that have a DVD player in them. Most DVD's in Computers play all regions codes. If you don't feel like watching the Rid UK DVD's on your computer then another simple fix is to buy a cheaply priced small DVD player,most of these can hook up to any TV & play all regions,Colby is a cheaply price small compact DVD player that can play all region codes world wide.
Years ago,I went to the Amazon UK site & bought the complete 2001 Series when it was on a clearance sale for 80% off.
