Grab a hold of something. Your bubble is about to go..............POP!!!!.
Go to AV Maniacs DVD forum and you will see that MGM has ended their MOD for a second time!!! Please notice, that Amazon is no longer taking orders for this. More bad news. MGM has started leasing some of their catalog titles to the worse budget label ever-----TGG Direct AKA Tiger Direct. Check out Amazons listing for The Dr. Goldfoot Double Feature DVD, the company releasing info lists MGM/TGG. These are already in some Walmarts and K-marts.
Now the good news. MGM has licensed "some" of their catalog to the great DVD label Shout Factory. "Terrorvision" is one of the titles. AV Maniacs and a few other DVD forums have a more complete list.
My suggestion is to send a email to Shout Factory and asked them to release this great fun show. I would also suggest that if they can get the rights from MGM, to include "Voyage Into Space" which is a movie version of Johnny Sokko made up from the first few episodes. "Voyage Into Space" is how some of us got into Johnny Sokko since where I lived in the 70's we didn't get the show. MGM has truly frustrated many fan , like me, with the constant "we're going to release this, OH! no we're not". I wish studios that use the MOD method of releasing their older films on DVD would wake up and realize that charging $19.99-$24.99 for DVD-r's is too much. $9.99-11.99 is about right for a MOD DVD-r barebones release.

I hope this actually becomes available soon. I ordered it for download
and, after charging me, Amazon informed me that it was not compatible with my Mac. (What century are you guys living in, half the population owns Macs.) Now they are saying a DVD-R release is coming. No regular release? Why? I'll tell you why. Because whoever is in charge of these decisions is probably 25 - 30 years old and has no idea that this Sokko is popular and personally thinks its terrible. The fact that BCI's Ultraman DVD's didn't do as well as hoped may also be a factor. Of
course the the fact that the Ultraman DVD's were of bootleg quality,
and that BCI fed the buyers all sorts of lies explaining why they were so bad, is probably not known to MGM/Fox.
I know that they have good prints of Johnny Sokko. I have seen a couple.
They are not exactly the same as the original broadcast versions, but they were definitely taken from the same prints or inter-negatives
that the originals were.
I really, I really want this. Johnny Sokko, and Ultraman are my favorite show's of all time, and I know a lot of other people who feel the same way.
Why do the keep cheating us?
I'm praying that we don't get cheated by Fox, the way that we got cheated by BCI.

I'm really happy that Amazon and MGM(The owners of Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot) are officially releasing
this series to dvd. This will be the first time the series has made it officially to dvd here in the United States.
Please give us a reasonable price point-I'd say not more than $30 tops for the entire series(I'd prefer it to be between $19.99-$29.99). Especially when the Ultraman box set for 39 episodes only costs around $10-15!

Thanks Amazon and MGM!

Come Giant Robot!!!!

Here's hoping the picture quality is better than this
shoddy-looking packaging. I was pleased that Warner
has already upgraded their MOD dvd-r releases to look
more like a first-rate release, with original release
artwork that spreads out over the entire package.
These "generic" covers, with their plain text titles
look more like the "home brew" or even pirated variety.
Come on MGM/Fox. Don't go cheap on us now!
As for the quality of the actual print used, I will
be surprised if it isn't the same as the Orion VHS prints,
just bumped-up to dvd quality. We will just have to wait.
In Japan (country of origin), this series was completely
remastered, but had no dubbed English audio and was very
expensive! I watched this series on streaming on
my Netflix account back in 2008 and it looked terrible!
Pray it is mercifully better than that muddy looking mess!
*update: June 2012-Two years after being announced, MGM has
finally locked a price for the 7 disc set: $24.99 (currently).
I have already put in my pre-order and will be anxious
to finally have this long lost 70's series from my youth!

I saw this in the 70's as a Kid and LOVED it as well as Ultraman. Give me a break I know you can release this so just get off your kester and let's get a move on!! People are waiting?? I'll be one of the first in line. I am 45 and not getting any younger, if you can re-release frickin Footloose and Fame ect, ect. You can find the Japanese Masters and get a move on? Thanks and get it out SOON.

I really can't give a lot of information on this release, with no release date. But I would comment on the series. Johnny Sokko has been one of my favorites next to Ultraman. I know this is being release on dvd-r, so what. Also it wont have the Japanese language on it, but prefer the English version anyways. I'll say this the only way I'll buy this set if its within 25 dollars range. If more, then they could shove-it.

Quality?
I'd imagine that these will be taken from the Orion home video masters. I actually bought the series via Itunes and was very, very happy with the quality of the episodes. Buy a few episodes on Itunes to see for yourself, they're only $1.99 an episode. They certainly can't be worse than the... Read More
