Editorial Reviews

The Original Outer Space Western Anime is back! From the creators of Voltron come Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs! Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs was a 1980's animated space western following a similar theme of The Galaxy Rangers and Bravestarr. Originally a 1984 Japanese anime series known as Star Musketeer Bismarck created by Studio Pierrot. The series is set in the future, where the Star Sheriffs are duly-deputized special operatives of Cavalry Command, Earth's space-going law enforcement arm and defense patrol organization out in space, and along the New Frontier. Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs main assignment is to protect the Galaxy from the growing threat of the Outriders. With the help of April Eagle and RAMROD (voiced by Peter Cullen who voiced Optimus Prime in the 80s cartoon series Transformers), a battleship that can transform into a giant robot. When RAMROD undergoes the "Challenge Phase" transformation it calls out its rallying cry in a heavy Western drawl, "Head 'em up, move 'em out. Power stride and ready to ride!" Other than their wits, their courage, and their standard issue equipment, such as their blaster pistols, and RAMROD's array of electronics, they have no superpowers, just each other. When they do battle with the Outriders, it's a futuristic version of the code of the Old West. Volume Two consist of episodes 18-33 from the hit TV series, as well as never before seen extras and production art. Don t miss the chance to add an exclusive piece of animation history to your collection. Bonus Features: Audio interview with musical composer Dale Schacker, Original Japanese Opening, Ending and Transformation Sequence from Star Musketeer Bismarck, Image Gallery, Saber Rider Commercials, Bios. Product Specs: 6-DVD9s; Dolby Digital; 1200 minutes; 1.33:1 Aspect Ratio; MPAA-G; Year - 1984; SRP - $39.99.

VCI Entertainment presents "SABER RIDER & THE STAR SHERIFFS:COMPLETE SERIES" (14 September 1987) (30 min - 52 episodes on Six DVD's) ) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- In the late 21st Century (or early 22nd Century), humankind has reached the stars --- Many outposts and settlements have been made for several planets, and the modern space-age has merged with the legacy of Old West --- There are villans, outlaws, bounty hunters...and sheriffs --- The Star Sheriffs are the special operatives of Cavalry Command, Earth's law enforcement and defense patrol out in space, and along the New Frontier --- They are also ambassadors of good will to other planets in space --- But the main assignment of the Star Sheriffs is to protect the Galaxy from the growing threat of the Outriders.

This is the long awaited classic Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs was an animated TV series, aired from 1986 to 1989 --- During it's 52 episodes, it introduced us to another possible future for mankind --- Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs explore the new frontier, the wide-open ranges of outer space, where the legendary honor and virtue of the Wild West combine with vibrant extraterrestrial adventure --- Saber Rider is the dashing leader of the Star Sheriffs --- Their mission is to establish peace and unity against the Outriders, mysterious vapor beings led by the powerful Nemesis --- Joined by assorted rustlers and desperadoes, the Outriders challenge the Star Sheriffs to action-packed attacks --- Independently, the Star Sheriffs' efforts to maintain justice are admirable -- but when united, they are invincible.

Like so many other kids of the early 1980s, my very introduction to anime took place (without me even realizing it) thanks to the nation's obsession with robots. You may remember that period in time when Transformers (the first time), GoBots, and Turbo Teen but it turns out many of the "other" robot shows of the era were actually Japanese anime series that were spliced up, dubbed into English and packaged under a whole new name. Among these: Robotech, the Voltrons, Macron One and Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs.

I remember noting even at the time that there was something very different about the Japanese originated shows though it would be years before I would learn the true stories behind the shows and for that matter, come to appreciate these so much over the American trite I cherished at the time.

Anyway, these shows were actually hybrids, not simply anime dubbed into English as changes were made to the characters and material to "Americanize"/ remove all of the more adult-friendly aspects of the source material. To purests, these hybrids are worthless- calling them American productions isn't accurate but at the same time nor do they do the Japanese source material credit either.

Of course being a kid at the time, I was astonished at the increased character depth, the ongoing story thread idea, and the realism these shows contained when compared to our American Transformers & GoBots cartoons. By the time Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs came on the scene in 1987 (based on Japan's 1984 series Star Musketeer Bismarck) by World Event Productions (same guys who brought us the two Voltron shows a few years earlier), I had bailed out on robots altogether.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than I remembered May 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs is a show I used to watch when I was 8 years old and having watched the boxset 22 years later, I appreciate it more now than I did then. Granted I can see through the holes in the story caused by re-ordering episodes but this show is so enjoyable it's unreal. I love the music in it, Colt's theme brings a smile to my face every time I hear it and Peter (G1 Optimus Prime) Cullen voicing the commander of the star sheriffs and the commander of the Outriders as well as a number of other people (and the big giant robot) throughout just has me LOL'ing.

The Star Sheriff's themselves are the real stars of this show, a really great collection of characters that work well on their own but even better when mocking their colleagues and then coming to the rescue of each other. Ramrod, their Spaceship/super robot is a superb design and while his fights are usually short, I never get bored of seeing a giant robotic cowboy blasting an opponent into pieces.

This is boxset is amazing value and if you haven't seen it, this show is more fun than a lot of newer shows out there. You don't need character development if they are awesome to begin with, you just need more stories with your favourites in and while there is plenty here, I still wish I had just a couple more stories - that is the mark of a great series

4.0 out of 5 stars At last Saber Rider the Complete Collection December 9, 2009
Verified Purchase
Yes I grew up Saber Rider, loved it from day one when the first volume one collection came i bought and watch and waited for the rest to come and its here (except now I must give away my volume one cause there is only the complete availible).

I would have given the collection 5 stars and i realy want too but it seems the audio sync problem from the first volume one collection on episode "What did you do on your summer vacation" was however not fixed on the complete collection. I have not yet watch all of them but this is for me a small disapointment.

As a true supporter of the series i will overlook this and hope that there are no other issued on the rest of the episodes so.
