    Mill Creek releasing He-Man

    The budget company is releasing He-Man and Bravestarr to DVD in 2011. Obviously, it won't be as high class as BCI's release. I might buy it as a cheap backup, though.

    Yeah, I was expecting Classic Media to release He-Man since they released She-Ra (and maybe even wait until the new movie stuck in developmental hell came out). I guess Classic Media sort of treated She-Ra like a budget release, but didn't charge budget prices. This will definitely be at budget prices.

    After seeing what CM did to She-Ra, I'm glad Mill Creek is the one releasing She-Ra. I plan to get all three releases, especially the complete series....love the cover art.

    The fact that some people from BCI work at Mill Creek must have helped
    They definitely looks 10 times better then the poor job Classic Media did on She-Ra.

    It's also cool how the complete season set reminds me a of some of the early concepts we did for the seasons sets at BCI

    Very imaginitive use of existing Emiliano-arts.

    I was never a fan of the He-Man pose. Mostly because it makes him look older, and anatomy appears wonky on Filmation standards. Interesting that they'd choose it for cover; instead of all other poses there might be made of He-Man.

    On 20episode covers, the extreme light-effects makes the art really pop-out. He-Man especially with the lightnings are extremely cool-looking!

    Great to hear that Mill Creek would accept help, which I take it they didn't go for with She-Ra sets.

    Do you have any sketches of those early concepts, Emiliano? Those would be great to see. Even in the "Emiliano's Big Book of DVD-artbook"

    I still haven't gotten around to buying any of BCI's Bravestarr DVDs. I was planning on getting them eventually through Ebay or Amazon but now I may just get these. The MOTU DVDs on the other hand have such great covers, I may actually buy them all over again.
    LONG LIVE LOU SCHEIMER!!!

    Wow- very surprised by this! The artwork looks great. Classic Media need to see the way Mill Creek have treated He-Man and rush a better job on She-Ra's complete series.

    Another opportunity for Mattel and MOTUC- I wonder if they know about it...

    And that's were you'll see them
    If I remember correctly, I did something like 72 layouts for the season sets

    coming from a bit of a 'dumb' stand-point here, but - i've seen that the he-man cartoon has already been released on dvd ... what's different about this one and the one that already exists? ...

    is there a particular one which is the 'definitive' version of the he-man cartoon? ...

    I'm sure there will be many differences (in the releases, not the actual cartoon).
    But the main difference is that the previous release is sold out and you can't buy it anymore in the shops.

    This is a budget release, so it will definitely be a heck of a lot cheaper to try to pick up the season 1 and later the season 2 set of these than trying to get all 4 BCI sets through e-bay. Of course, Mill Creek tends to cram too many episodes per discs (some loss of picture quality) and use paper sleeves on the inside. The BCI sets also had special features (it sounds like the Mill Creek release will have at least some of these) and art cards. It really depends on your level of fandom on which sets you'd want to get. If you are a die hard fan, I'd recommend the BCI sets (you'd probably already own them if you were). If you are a casual fan, these sets will probably do. I might rebuy the Mill Creek season sets just to have some cheap back ups. The cover of the season 1 set looks pretty cool.

    If this'll have the missing Orko scene, then this'll be definitive version.

    Glad I finally get a chance to get the Filmation series. I missed out the first time on DVD an I've been debating on whether or not to deal with Ebay or Amazon to get the old sets. This solves my problems.
    We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!

    Thanks, but aside the actual art I did for the BCI sets reused here, all props goes to the designers at Mill Creek

    That will never happen unfortunately.
    The digital masters created aren't in high definition (they have been done a long time ago) and all the analogic sources have been destroyed.
    DVD are the best we can get.

    Same here! If it hits Blu-ray and looks anything like the Transformers: The Movie ('86) Blu-ray released in the UK, I'll be all over it. I wasn't sure how much better a high def version would look until seeing that. I'd love to see MOTU in HD!

    Read my post above: Blu-Ray is impossible.

    I've often wondered about this. Do any of the movies, TV shows, or specials re-released on Blu-Ray have nothing done to them(other than being transferred to a Blu-Ray disc) or do all of them have an upgrade of some sort done to the source material?

    It's very simple: if the source material exist, or the master is already in HD, it might be transfered on high definition support.
    If the masters are in low def, the best you can do is upscaling it.
    Which means you're blowing up the data you started with, so what wasn't there can't be created and the result is anythign better then the original, just bigger.

    it's like blowing up a low rex pic in photoshop. You won't get a hig resolution image, just a fuzzy low res blown up.
