    Earlier this year, I picked up the Phoenix saga from the 90's X-men cartoon series that FOX Kids and Universal released. Today I was looking around The Future Shop and I noticed another X-men cartoon DVD with different episodes on it (Weapon X, Lies and video tape and about 3 or 4 others I think I saw on it. I haven't picked it up yet, but I hope to soon), but from what I understand from the FOX Kids press release was that only the Phoenix saga was released, but it appears that there are more so anybody now if any others than the 2 that I saw are out?
    because I'd like to have all the episodes on DVD.

    All the episodes will never be released on DVD due to contract problems with Saban. There's a stipulation in there that no more than X(sorry don't know the number, and yes aware of the pun [​IMG] ) episodes can hit home video

    Answer is: 3 DVD's:
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    * Phoenix Saga
    * Reunion/Out of the Past
    * Sanctuary/Proteus/Weapon X
    All too horribly expensive. I picked up a used Phoenix Saga (it was great!), but the only place I can find the other two are online for $22.99 or more, or at Suncoast for SRP!! [​IMG]

    I really, really, REALLY want "Night of the Sentinels" (first two episodes) on DVD. They are the only episodes I'm interested it. Any word on whether they'll make it?

    Carl,
    I am assuming that you have the first episodes on tape? If not, e-mail me.

    Yes, Mike, I do, thanks.
    So yes, I do have the ability to watch it anytime I want, and to be honest, VHS quality doesn't bother me nearly as much as it seems to everyone else here, but I don't like the fact that I'm degrading the quality of the tape every time I watch it.
    Over the past four years, I've been rebuying my VHS collection (I was never able to afford laserdisc) on DVD. The DVD format has really come into the mainstream lately, and I'm quite surprised at some of the relatively obscure titles that are now available. I'm so happy to finally own "The Goonies" and "The Neverending Story" in their original widescreen aspect ratio.
    Anyway, I'm down to only a handful of tapes that I'd like to be able to replace with DVDs, and "X-Men: Night of the Sentinels" is one of them.
