Transformers Japanese Collection Replacement Discs from Shout Factory

tfcollection

An email has just gone out minutes ago to customers who have ordered the Transformers Japanese Collection DVD set from the Shout Factory website. This fix is in regards to subtitling errors in a few episodes in the set (though no specific errors were cited). The replacement discs will be sent out automatically to those who have purchased from Shout Factory, no special requests need to be made. The entire message from Shout Factory is as follows:

A few of you have written in to us about errors in the subtitling on a couple episodes in your Transformers Japanese Collection set. We are moving quickly to fix those errors and manufacture two replacement discs for your set and will ship them to you in about two weeks. They will ship automatically to anyone who has purchased the set from ShoutFactory — you do not have to make any special requests or respond to this email. In the event you’re planning future purchases for friends or recommending the title, please know that our entire inventory in the warehouse and all future runs are also being corrected simultaneously.

So those that have not yet purchased need not fret, the warehouse inventory will be updated accordingly. Those of you who already have the set in your possession let us know what subtitling fixes are needed in our forums! Also make sure to let us know when your replacement discs arrive!

    Just got an email regarding my Japanese Collection. Apparently there has been a problem (that I'm not aware of) with subtitles on two discs that come with the collection. Anyone know which ones?

    You'd think there'd have to be some seriously glaring errors for them to go to this much trouble.

    Yeah, we're talking like a whole episode with another episode's subs. This isn't a one-word typo or anything.

    From the shout factory message board:

    I noticed some subtitles being off in Masterforce, I think around the second disc or so. i didn't see anything wrong with headmasters, and have yet to get to Victory. These errors were kinda minor, and only kinda annoying. you get the idea, it's just the timing is a little off, or a line is switched.
    The fact that they are addressing this issue and just replacing everyone's disc just shows off how awesome Shout factory is.

    Shout Factory, when I see you at the next Botcon I can attend, you're getting a high five for customer service.

    Randy!

    EDIT: ^guess I was wrong. which series/discs were they?

    The problem areas are on a single discs ... 1 of Masterforce, and 1 of Victory.
    Details :

    When will "Masterforce" and "victory" be released on dvd?

    This really should get a news credit.

    One piece of good news during the FE crazyness.

    I don't suppose there's a chance of undoing Hasbro's insistance of shoe-horning IDW and Aligned terminology into these discs ("Phase Six Officer" and "Deployers", to name a few)? I mean, I've got no qualms about them... in their respective universes. But this is a whole-sale changing of what was said, and that's not cool in my book (I could care less about whether or not they use Convoy or Optimus Prime, Autobots or Cybertrons etc, so long as a note is attached explaining what they did).

    They need to quit being dicks and release Masterforce and Victory as separate sets already.
