    That's standard for virtually all TV on DVD. Its not uncommon to see a drop from 30-50% on every subsequent season. That's the reason that a number of long running shows have never seen finished releases. At some point sales drop enough that the studio loses money.

    Its a rare show (like The Simpsons, FX and a few others) that suffer very little attrition from year-to-year.

    What missing scene? I haven't heard about this. No pun intended, but I missed that. One of my DVD's of the MYP MOTU cartoon has a missing scene too.

    They do.
    Only the DVD releases which use Hallmarks digital masters don't have it.

    Correct. Entertainment Rights did not have that footage, so they would not allow us to use it - either inserted back into the episode, or as a litte bonus feature.

    Its possible Classic Media would allow Mill Creek to use it, but I doubt they'll go to the expense of doing so.

    I've been wondering the same thing, and I'm honestly not sure if it was even up for sale at the Con. I haven't seen any members here who've posted anything about purchasing this set, nor have I seen any of the sets on eBay .

    Regards,

    That's great to hear, confirmation at last !

    I'll have the BCI sets arriving shortly via a trade, but my interest is certainly piqued for this set solely for the extras/exclusives .

    Regards,
    Victor P.

    I agree! I hadn't heard anyone say anything about getting one and haven't seen any for sale. I was getting worried. I would love a copy.

    Considering Mill Creek's season 1 has been on sale on Amazon for as low as $12.99, I'd be surprised if they sold all of their SDCC Season 2 sets for $25.00. If the .org wasn't able to get any for fans that wanted them, maybe they will show up on Mill Creek's cheapdvdpacks site or Amazon down the road (and perhaps at a reduced price).

    I am afraid they will not:

    Good Morning,
    Thank you for your interest in Mill Creek Entertainment and its line of products. We appreciate it when customers take the time to contact us with their comments, suggestions and questions. Unfortunately, we do not sell directly to the public. Also, due to the terms of our contract we are unable to sell the Comic-Con exclusive set outside of the convention. You may consider checking out an on-line auction site to see if someone is selling their copy. We appreciate your enthusiasm over the upcoming release of this title and the set will be available on September 13th. Please monitor our website for the information regarding this title and our other soon to be released products. Please feel free to contact us with any additional comments or questions you might have.

    Sincerely,
    Lyle Goff
    Project Manager
    Mill Creek Entertainment

    So, do we have a firm date for the regular release of Season 2 yet? I'm dying to get it since I missed out on the S2V1 back in the day and refuse to pay the outrageous prices they go for now.

    Can anyone who owns the SDCC exclusive Season Two set take pictures of the front, back, sides of the set? Pics of everything that's exclusive to this set would be awesome! I think most people (including myself) have only seen the press photo.

    The only exclusive part is the cover on the cardboard cover that goes on the plastic case, all the rest is more likely identycal to the regular release.

    If I remember correctly, not. The sleeve should be the same of the regular.
    But I can't confirm as my copies are still in US, sorry!

    The exclusive looks pretty cool on the outside. Too bad they probably use the same crappy paper sleeves on the inside...

    Just to give a quick reminder, Season 2 will be out on Sept 13. I already have the comic con exclusive, but I plan on getting season 2 just to carry around in my laptop bag.
    We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!

    I need to pick up the second season because I never got the old sets but I must ask: Who the heck is selling this at retail? So far, all I've seen are online sales. Best Buy, Wal Mart and Target arent selling this in stores, only online. I dont want to order it online, I'd rather just go pick it up.
    Wanted: Episode 40 Comic.
