Thirty-two of the series' 65 episodes are featured on this four-disc set, which is nicely supplemented by a 30-minute interview with creator Robert Mandell. Over the course of the featurette, he discusses the influence of other animated shows on Galaxy Rangers (including his own Thunderbirds 2086 and TMS' Space Cobra) as well as the challenges of farming out the animation to Japan and then using ADR to dub the footage. Mandell is also featured in commentaries on four episodes, where he's joined by his brother Henry (a voice-over artist on the show) and story editor Christopher Rowley. The real finds among the extras are the original pilot, which differs slightly from the series' first episode in both story and voice talent, as well as a recreation of one of the show's tie-in storybook audio cassettes. A jukebox feature offers videos of the show's pop-rock theme songs as well as three library tracks used in subsequent episodes. --Paul Gaita

For those who don't know this the basic story is: in a far future the contact with other alien races let the human race go to the stars, creating a group of special officers of law to keep the peace in the galaxy.
But Zachary Fox the leader of this team knows well there's another mission: stop any attack of the evil Queen of Crown, who's trying to conquer the galaxy.
These things makes this show a unique combination of wonderfull animation with clever stories to people of all ages.

Story line set after the year 2086, when two aliens from the planets Andor and Kirwin travelled to Earth to search for allies against the ruthless and expansionist Crown Empire led by the Queen of the Crown. In return for the help, mankind was given construction plans for an FTL-drive (hyperdrive).Read more ›
According to what I have read, the label is releasing two big compilation sets that together will present the entire Galaxy Rangers series (there were 65 eps created) in two waves. I actually wrote to the company and they responded by stating that one collection would simply have been too big to market, thus the two waves. The company went on to communicate that the second wave would release in late Summer/early Fall of 08. What great news.
I love that the creator was involved and I love that the series is being presented in perfect chronological order (the way it should be). I have pre ordered MY copy and am thoroughly looking forward to a NO GUTS / NO GLORY weekend of Galaxy Rangers upon its arrival:)
The fan base may be small as compared to He-Man, but we are dedicated and have been waiting for this to be done justice.
It was worth the wait because now we got the backstory on why the animation was sometimes so different from episode to episode. The commentary on the selected episodes was great. (I just wish we would have had more commentary!)
The interview with Robert Mandell was interesting and the music tracks were wonderful - I just wish they were in MP3 form to be uploaded to an iPod to take on the road for those of us who have a daily commute.
Eagerly looking forward to Volume 2!

Nice to have this on DVD to relive the nostalgia of my youth, but it saddens & annoys me that they have this on BluRay in Germany, and not in the USA. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Mr O.
