That is the best answer for what they did but apparently the strategy back fired based on all the negative comments and laughter they received from potential younger buyers. So for us older viewers who are the fans and main buyers of the show we are stuck with a cover that doesn't match the show and imho is disrespectful to the original show by saying the original artwork is not good enough for a cover.
That's why I wish Warner Archive would have released this instead of WHV as they would have treated the show with respect.
Even if they had wanted the improper "modern" artwork for the main image, they should have used the show's official logo w/headshot (as screen-capped earlier in the thread), or at the very least, used actual screen caps on the back cover. It wouldn't surprise me if they don't even mention the word Filmation on there anywhere.
taking things a wee bit off-topic, I think it's a real missed opportunity for someone in some region (not necessarily the US, but anywhere) to not have released complete series sets of all those old Filmation titles that BCI released which are now OOP and going for silly money.
Spain did Isis, Space Academy and Ark II, but (IMO, stupidly) only included Spanish audio. If they'd have also included the original English, it could have potentially sold much better!
I bought the Spanish sets for Ark II and Space Academy before I was sure about the audio, and noticed that they contain more picture area than the corresponding BCI sets (because both sets were created from PAL format masters, the US sets are slightly cropped and, due to the standards conversion and lower resolution of NTSC, of a little bit lesser quality).
Seeing the superior PAL sets makes me with someone in Region 2 (or 4) would take those PAL masters and re-release all the live-action shows. Even if they cannot include the same extras that were on the BCI sets (due to licencing copyright), I'd be happy with new sets of just the episodes, direct from the PAL format masters.
As far as I know, the only Filmation live-action that got released (in English) in PAL format was the first six half-hours of Jason of Star Command, across three volumes in the UK.
