According to B Ward they did get the japanese audio, but it doesn't match, so nice dice. Video quality is apparently quite good.

And my friend who posts on their board tried pimping me and/or Mcfeely to write profiles for the dvd set lol

Not saying I wouldn't do it, cause I would, I just doubt id by asked lol, plus Mcfeely knows Medabots better then anyone

According to Wiki, in Japan, there were 52 episodes in series 1, and for the dub the original episode 39 was omitted (not sure how correct that is, though). [/quote]

No, that doesn't sound right. All 52 episodes got dubbed - you can see the list on Wikipedia. The important thing to remember about the Medabots dub is that it's not in order.

In Japan, the first 26 episodes consisted of single-episode comedy adventures, while the latter 26 involved the revelation of the Medaforce, Doctor Meta-Evil, his use of Rare Medals to take over the world's Medabots, and the World Robattle Championships and the series finalie.

The dub reorganized things so that the Medaforce/Meta-Evil/takeover story formed the finale of Season 1. The single-adventure episodes that they removed from the first set of 26 were then used to form the opening part of Season 2, which ended, like the Japanese version, with the Championships. This actually created one or two continuity errors - one of those episodes was the one in which Koji started studying the Shadow Sword, which otherwise came out of nowhere in Season 1, and.... nn, there was something else, but I forget what. Maybe it was... Cyandog becoming Krosserdog?

Holy crap, just *thinking* about this makes me want DVDs. I actually think I have a VHS with taped copies of the World Robattle Championship episodes lying around...

OMG! This is so exciting. I love medabots, I remember trying so hard to get the dual-mode toys from Japan, they looked so kool. I can't wait to buy the DVDs, I hope they release the 3rd season/2nd series (I'm not sure what to call it) but the story arc with kilobots. Yay Medabots!

Huhn. So they do. Well, that list has omitted episode #39, "Robattle Bridge," aka "Bridge Over Troubled Squidguts," which I know was dubbed, because... uh, I saw it. And it's on TV.Com. Specifically, I remember it well enough because it's the episode where Squidguts reveals his real name to Robattle Ikki - the episodes in which the other three Rubberobos got to do this were in Dub Season 1, but this was one of those skipped-over episodes, which was bumped up to Dub Season 2.

You mean... ANOTHER PIECE OF MY CHILDHOOD IS MAKING A COMEBACK?!?!?!?! Now, all we need is for Beast Wars to air on Jetix or Toonami, and I can rest in peace ;D
