    The year is 6132
    when a young boy, Marcus Rover, dreams of becoming an Ace Gear Pilot.
    Finally, he is
    given a chance. Overcoming all odds, he passes the most grueling tests
    to be recruited by
    the Shadow Dragons. After learning to take control of a multi-ton war
    machine, he is able
    to fight the Vanguard of Justice and its commander Major Drake Alexander
    Wallis III.

    Explosive nonstop action starts with the first tournament of the season
    when Marcus
    proves he is truly worthy of the title "Ace Gear Pilot". He alone must
    battle with five
    Vanguards and then fight in the ultimate grudge match with the reigning

    Wallis to see who will win the Trash City Cup. The electrifying duels
    intensify with life-
    like computer-generated special effects!

    HEAVY GEAR: BATTLE FOR THE BADLANDS
    When two dueling teams face off in the arena, a young boy finds that his
    wildest dreams
    have come true. Recruited into the Shadow Dragons as a Gear Pilot,
    Marcus Rover can
    finally take control of a multi-ton war machine. Fighting alongside his
    squad in the
    Heavy Gear Championship, he must prove himself against the Northern
    Vanguard of
    Justice and its commander Major Drake Alexander Wallis III.

    After death-defying duels atop the Tower of Terror, the Shadow Dragons
    must
    overpower the Vanguard to stop a speeding runaway train. To win the
    coveted
    Championship Trophy, Marcus must overcome swarms of evil robotic
    spiders, a
    terrifying mechanical monster and still do battle with his rival Wallis.
    The suspense is
    electrifying as each duel is sabotaged by the Vanguard and a surprise
    enemy!

    I was able to get an early copy of both dvds. I have a site on an actress who has a recurring role on the series.
