    Mill Creek Acquires Rights to MYP Show

    http://tvshowsondvd.com/news/He-Man-...e-Series/12143

    What does this mean for us He-Man fans? Thoughts?

    WHAT IT MEANS????

    WOW!!!!!!

    We get a new COMPLETE SERIES - 4 Discs priced at $24.98
    + a (what it seems to be a starter) set of 1 disc called ORIGINS!

    I am thrilled!!

    I know we already have what there is to be had from the MYP 2002 He-man but these sets got me excited!! Can't wait for dvd covers and contents.

    Although it is pretty obvious that the COMPLETE set won't have any extras. It will be a "vanilla" edition. Just the episodes in 4 discs...

    edit: and the hope for:




    a mod should post it on the front page

    I'm confused...so they're re-releasing what we already have on fewer disks at a lower price in a single volume? That's it, right? Not trying to rain on the parade, just making sure I'm not missing something. I've got 'em all, but if you missed out, then this is indeed AWESOME news and I'm happy for ya!!!

    Nice to know these are staying in production. It's a good way to keep MOTU out there.

    exactly what it looks like..

    low budget sets just for the sake of not letting the franchise be lost in the dvd limbo... and of course for fans to buy them now that they can.

    low budget = good for the economy

    it will be interesting now to see how this goes..

    WE WANT BLURAY !!!!!

    What I want to ask is, are any of the previous designers i.e. Emiliano contacted for these sets?? artwork and such?

    Well it's good to hear that Mattel are keeping the MYP series in circulation. It's a great way to keep the brand in the public eye for a bit. Maybe this will co-inside with some movie news in September. Mattel may want the DVD's release to co-inside with more movie news. If the movie has been green lit and this info starts making the rounds, general nostalga fans and more adult toy / sci-fi collectors could hear about it. Hopefully seeing the MYP cartoon series so cheeply in their local stores could moviate them to pick it up to see what all the fuss is about: This is perticularly if the MYP cartoon is refered in movie press releases as a heavy reference for the movie. MOTUC might have also made many new fans of the brand who were previously unaware of MOTU's little re-birth almost 10 years ago! So They to might want to pick up the MYP DVD's (perticularluy if they are advertised on Mattycollector.

    Hmmm. Interesting.

    I have some 50-pack horror sets from Mill Creek Entertainment, many of which range from poor to decent quality. Not saying these will be low-quality. Just randomly throwing that out. hehe

    When I saw they got the rights to Dungeons & Dragons the other day, I was wondering if they'd get the rights to any of the MOTU shows. I won't be buying them, but it is nice that they will still be out there for people to buy.

    I thought Mill Creek only did "Public Domain" releases... since BCI is gone is that what is happening here? Or did they actually pay to license this stuff.

    well the news clearly state "Rights Acquisition" so, my guess is yes they actually paid for them.. The Masters is a big franchise to be left public domain.

    I hope Mattel takes the opportunity to advertise MOTUC like they did in Volume 3.

    First and foremost, I hope this means that a Blu-Ray release isn't that far off. I'd really like to see a proper Hi-Def version of this series released.

    Having said that, I hope that the quality of these new DVDs ends up being good. The fact that it's only 4 discs kind of worries me. The BCI sets had the episodes spread across a total of 6 discs (not including the bonus feature discs), so hopefully these won't be too overly compressed.

    There was also an issue where the authoring of BCI's Volume 1 wasn't as good as 2 or 3 (they switched authorers after Vol 1 because of this), and when watching on a Hi-Def TV, there is a BIG problem with huge jagged lines along anything colored red, like orko or the lava around Snake Mountain. Hopefully this will be corrected with these new sets.

    Personally I would like the hold out for a Blu-Ray release, but if I find out that the quality of these DVDs is good, I'll pick them up.

    I wonder if that Origins DVD is the movie version of "The Beginning"

    Ok so I've only seen the pilot of the series when it first premeired and didn't really strike my interest much so I never really watched it. Now that my interest in MOTU has been peaked because of the classics line, I am thinking about buying the DVDs for this show. It's good to see that I can buy the complete series for such a low price. It'll all be new to me so I'm ready to soak it in.

    Maybe it's the same as "The World of He-Man" short that was released with some 200x figures then featured in the MYP DVD's.

    ***EDIT: I just went to their website. I saw the cover. It says "Origins •10 Episodes" so I'm thinking It's the first three episodes "The Beginning"

    I meant maybe "Origins" is in reference to the first three episodes.

    Ah, good, I'm relieved, they didn't do anythign crazy with my cover.
    In fact, it's exactly the same (so I won't need to rebuy!)
    On D&D they repainted the Dragon and mixed it with the figures from the RPG adventure book.

    I would guess that 'Origins' includes the first three episodes along with other key/flashback episodes - perhaps The Ties That Bind, The Power of Grayskull, Out of the Past and Rise of the Snakemen Parts I and II.

    An interesting collection though and something that I'd imagine Mattel must have OK'd.

    MOTU seems to be becoming hot property again...
    Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - Spinnerella - Melaktha - Vultak - Dylamug - Crita - Mermista Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina
