Review after the page break.
Christmas is around the corner, and if you forgot to buy a present for your loved ones, the following item will let you share your love for My Little Pony.
As a Christmas present for all fans of the show, EDEL Records released a remastered limited edition of the first DVD. Vivid colours, 5.1-sound, and an additional audio track are just the topping on the cupcake, because every DVD is paired with one brushable of the Royal Wedding toyline. EDEL Records took the criticism about the first volume to heart and did their best to fulfill our wishes with this limited edition. With the first three episodes and The Cutie Mark Chronicles, the most useful episodes to introduce someone new to the show are on the disc.
Time for the episode review, this week Ryan is flying solo with it, don’t abuse him too much. Artwork Aftershock and maybe some BGMs by tomorrow. Episode review after the page break.
The folks over at G4’s Attack of the Show sit down to review some DVDs, including My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 1 DVD from Shout Factory. The review also includes The Dark Knight Rises and something by the name of Banana Motherf**ker. Embedded video after the page break, or head over to G4 here.
Animator/Reviewer 24 Frames on Blip.tv recently released a review of the first season of Friendship is Magic. It gives a fairly thorough overview of the characters, as well as containing a couple of amusing skits on the side, much in the style of TGWTG reviewers. Blip embeds don’t work that well with WordPress, so catch the video here if you’re interested.
As we’ve reported before, Madman Entertainment in Australia was able to secure the contract to produce the Region 4 MLP:FiM DVDs and have created a fine product compared to other companies. Understanding that there is a very large community with money behind it, and hearing people who wanted a collectors box set for season one have prompt them to do just that, and create a Season 1 Box Set. Unfortunately because its for Region 4 this means that people outside of that zone are unable to view the DVDs, unless you have a Region 4 or Region Free DVD player. There is a way to view it on a Windows OS computer but there is of course a major catch. An explanation on that plus the review after the break.
Side Note: Unfortunately as its been pointed out by SharkMachine in the comments it seems the Collectors Box has sold out, and if my memory (which isn’t too good) recalls it was a limited run, thus you can no longer get the collectors box. Guess I waited too long to write this review, but of course the collectors box may appear on eBay or Amazon. Ah the lazy days of summer.
