I receive the replacement disc and it works just fine.
The only problem (minor) that I have is that this disc is from the separate complete season 2 set that was made available in 2011. Tha artwork on the disc is not the same as the disc from the 30th anniversary collection. On the artwork of the disc it is printed 2011 contrary to the collection being written 2012, Also, the small writing on the back of the disc does not say 30th anniversary collection. All of this are minor setback because I'm happy to have all the episodes working correctly. However it does confirm, at least to me, that the disc 3 of season 2 in the 30th anniversary edition as an encoding problem and that as not been recognize or really resolve. But again they gave me a working replacement disc. So I'm happy.
END of UPDATE ***
I don't give a perfect score for htis release because it has a defective disc that is in all the sets and Mill Creek Entertainment needs to offer a replacement disc. Otherwise the set is perfect.
The problem is found on Disc 3 of season 2 (so the 11th disc out of 22).
When I buy a big dvd set, I always fastfoward all the disc to verify that they all work properly. If there is a problem (encoding or big scratch) the disc will stop playing even if it's in fastfoward mode.
Now I have 2 different blu-ray players: LG and Panasonic.
1) Here's what happens in my LG player:
- The episode "Three on a dare" stops playing around the middle of the episode (where the commercial should appear). I cannot get it to start again. Also, it,s not possible to play the 2 following episodes "Just a little lie" and "One for all". So I'm only capable of watching 7 of the 10 episodes on the disc.Read more ›
If you have already purchased this set or are holding off due to the possible product defect, Mill Creek will handle the replacement with ease. Just send an e-mail outlining the issue to email@example.com and have the disc replaced. I received mine without hassle and good as new.
As many may have noticed, DISC 3 of SEASON 2 in the collections that were sent out does not play properly. Many disatisfied customers have contacted MillCreekEntertainment and received replacement discs (the replacement disc does resemble DISC 7 of SEASON 1 but it is, in fact, the defective disc, just from its individual release). The replacement disc does play perfectly but the fact that so many collections have the same defective disc suggests a major oversight on Mill Creek's part that could have been avoided with attention to detail. Hopefully, Mill Creek understands the problem in future releases and will correct it. Anyway, on to the original review...
I bought this in honor of the 30th Anniversary of Filmation's most successful project (and because my BTC-BCI discs are starting to show signs of scratching).
Anyway, the film and sound on these discs are CRISP and CLEAR! Weighed against my BTC/BCI sets , these seem to be IMPROVEMENTS on what was already pretty impressive several years ago (believe me; this is saying something since these discs cram more material on a single disc than the original company did. Therefore, of importance to note is that the episodes are in widescreen format). True, the BTC/BCI sets contain twice as many of those entertaining Character Profiles on their discs as these do (four separate sets with 50 Profiles per rather than two to complete the original series).
Anyway, there are a few minor drawbacks even to the collection honoring the Thirtieth Anniversary of MOTU. About a minute of the "Diamond Ray of Disappearance" is missing from these and the original sets and is, therefore, probably gone forever (it has been rumored that the master film for the "Diamond Ray..." episode was damaged).Read more ›
-The entire 80's Masters of the Universe television series is included; all with the same transfer quality and audio that the original sets have. I have the earlier releases, and I know that Season 2, volume 1 is extremely hard to come by - and expensive. This set is a great way to own the episodes included in season two at a much cheaper price. Also includes Six Documentary Featurettes, 100 Character Profiles, and English & Spanish Audio Tracks.
-The entire 2002 Masters of the Universe series is also included in this set. It features an awesome digital transfer and extremely clear audio throughout the whole run. Also, some of the extras included for this series include episode scripts, audio commentary from the producers, interviews with toy-line artists from Mattel and the Four Horsemen and, and a PDF comic for the unreleased final episode. This is a great way to experience the 2002 He-Man series if you happened to have missed it. It gives the cast of the original series some surprisingly cool new designs and updates many of the beloved stories found in the 80's series.
-Unfortunately this set only features 20 episodes of the New Adventures of He-Man television series that aired in the 90's. Contrary to popular belief, this new take on He-Man was quite satisfying and thoroughly enjoyable. However, the episodes that are included are some of the best in the whole run.Read more ›
