    I too would like to see a decent copy of Sextette but the copy Rhino obtained was not what they thought they purchased. I hope your release will be a different transfer!

    My VHS copy is miles better than the current DVD!

    I'm pretty sure there is a new transfer available on the film. If not, we will re-transfer the film.

    Actually, I can't take credit for turning BCI around...it started before I arrived. Jeff Hayne started the change with his acquisition of HE-MAN, but there were other titles before that...but He-Man is the real turning point, I think.

    Well, then at least you can take credit for releasing a bunch of awesome stuff. [​IMG]

    By the by, can you reveal what materials the Ultraman episodes are being mastered from?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    We received the masters from the licensor, so I'm sure what materials were used, but they look beautiful. Very colorful.

    i'm kind of surprised to see that you are segregating the filmation material into primarily an animation sub label.
    i would have thought an umbrella "saturday morning" imprint would have been more apropos giving the live action material.
    does this mean that Isis, Jason, and the others are farther away from release and pending the formation of another label?

    saw the press release for the HD titles on another site.
    will look forward to picking up Galaxina in HD come Aug.
