Wowsers. This was unexpected...
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.

I'll get the first set cuz a couple of my BCI discs are jacked and I never got replacements.
I really.. REALLY like the artwork!!!!!!
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
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!
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.
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...
Most-wanted MOTUC: Granita - Hunga the Harpy - The Melog - Dylamug - Sprag, Sprocker and Spritina - the Twiggets - King Ahgo - Filmation Grizzlor, Mantenna, Leech, Modulok and Multi-Bot
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? ...

USE YOUR ILLUSION
Emiliano will you ever release a book with all these illustrations inside?
will there be a complete set? interview with the writers or castmembers of the show and the release of special feature greatest adventures of them all?
"always believe in yerself"
dont be someone yer not
I'm a big fan of the box art!! Nice work Emiliano!!
I really hope they release these on Blu-Ray!! I want to see my Masters in High Def!!!!
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!
That will never happen unfortunately.I really hope they release these on Blu-Ray!! I want to see my Masters in High Def!!!!
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.
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.
