DVD SERIES INFORMATION

DVD SERIES INFORMATION

SO I get people asking a lot can I buy GI JOE EXTREME on DVD. Well the answer is yes you can buy the first 6 episodes on DVD for very very cheap prices.

GI JOE EXTREMES first 6 episodes was release on DVD in the Netherlands it has dutch sub-titles (but you can just turn them off) but is in English. They are usually really cheap I paid more for shipping. I got the DVDS delivered to my home in Japan for about $20 US dollars.

Interesting to note is, from the pics you can see immediately it has the Real American Hero Logo on it and not the GI JOE EXTREME LOGO. The DVDs also have this logo on it and not the Extreme Logo. Personally I think this is marketing brillance as the original logo has alot more recognition.
And they do it again on the Menu selection which you can see here for both DVD 1 and 2

The Big thing / Hard thing is its region 2 ( I have a regions free DVD player so its no problem for me) and you have to find some really cool dude to help you get them as most of the places on-line won't ship overseas.

Here is the back covers (again ) featuring the Real American Hero Logo . I also want to note how the back cover actualy shows 2 scenes from season 2 finale 2 episodes. In the second scene you can see what Metal heads second season outfit looked like and how it changed and looked so much better than the first season

I highly recommend you buying these DVDs, the first 8 episodes in the series are single character based so you get to know theses characters rather quickly and good and heck there cheap. The one thing that i liked about extreme is so many of the characters had a lot of story and characterization to them, it wasn't all based on just one character like the Comics are on Snake eyes and Storm Shadow . Many of the characters had in depth back stories or connections made. Its nice to see a series take these kind of steps in the overall story .So go help buy them increase their sales and maybe we can get the whole series released on DVD. Any other questions let me know.

Here is what the actual DVD looks like again notice the RAH logo displayed on the DVD

here are some links to the online store

they are indeed Region 2 and they are PAL so you need a converter and a region free DVD player if you dont have a region 2 pal player ( which i do have ! yeah! )

Fortunately all my gear is PAL/NTSC capable and region free, a lot of gear is over here. I take it this isn't as common in the US, Jamar?

definately not in the US and now JAPAN its all NTSC no pal and definately not region free, a region free dvd player ( blue ray ) cost me 600 dollars plus a 200 dollar NTSC / PAL digital converter. sucks balls LOL

but its both Japan and the US, in the past Japan used to have both but due to the close relationship it has with the US its all NTSC now sadly

That's weird, most DVD players are capable of scan conversion internally. All my players can output NTSC as PAL and vice versa. Apart from the 240/120 volt problem, sounds like you'd be better off importing one from Aussie ;)
