    Yeah, this might've caught my eye about 6 years ago, but I have almost the whole series already (just missing Season 10, which I'll probably get next week).

    It's basically just repackaging the previous releases with new labels and in a Turtle Van casing, same disk count and everything. So it's really cool for those who don't already have the series ($100 is less than I probably paid for all my DVDs), but skippable for those who already have the sets.

    I'm in the opposite boat; I have none of the releases, since the last time I tried watching it, I wasn't as compelled to continue. But since I do have the entirety of the 4Kids series, maybe it'd be good to at least get this for posterity. I mean, I had to order DVDs from the UK AND Australia just to complete 2k3, so having a series nice and wrapped up like it should be ought to be commended.

    I ended up using my individual OG series DVD for collateral on a pawn loan and I might no get them back with this on the way. It would take up a lot less shelf space and look so slick.

    Well I'll be.

    I've already got all the season sets, and I'm a little tempted to get this myself. It probably won't be worth it though, unless "Planet of the Turtletoids" and "Once Upon a Time Machine" will be arranged so that they'll be in the proper continuity order.

    They said the set will be composed of all the original disks, so probably not.

    Did I call it, or did I call it? It's the Complete Series, inside a Turtle Van, just as I predicted. I don't have any of the discs; the releases were such a mess. I've been waiting for them to do this.

    Good thing that horrid movie was canceled or we would have had to wait longer so they could time it to the film's release.

    I realized that you might be right when I observed the way the discs were placed in the set, and how some of them have the same kind of artwork. Going from front to back, it's like this:
    - The first disc is green (first season/volume)
    - The second disc is orange (second season/volume)
    - The third through sixth discs are light green (four discs made up the third season in individual volumes)
    - The seventh through eleventh discs are red (season 4 was a five-disc set)
    - The twelfth through fourteenth discs are blue (season 5 was a three-disc set)
    - The fifteenth and sixteenth discs are purple (season 6 was a two-disc set)
    - The seventeenth through twentieth discs are light orange (season 7 was a four-disc set)
    - The twenty-first disc is dark blue (eighth season)
    - The twenty-second disc is brown (ninth season)
    - The twenty-third disc is dark purple (tenth season)

    So it's most likely the existing discs with different artwork, and will just have the same content as they have on the individual sets.

    I'm also seeing something in this picture what looks like it might be a booklet.

    If that is a booklet, I'd get this set just for that. I'd also most likely sell my individual sets. No more fumbling with the awkward pizza-box season 5 set.

    I don't really have a desire to own all volumes of the series (only own the first five), but I would like to know which episode contained this quote:

    "Fire at will!"
    "Which one's Will?"

    I asked this a few years ago and nobody seemed to know. As long as I could get the volume that contained that quote, I'd be satisfied.

    That packaging will scratch the HELL out of the discs.

    That turtle van packaging looks very cool.

    However...

    1. I already own most of the series on DVD. (Season 1, first half of season 3, seasons 6-10)

    2. I'm not interested in owning the entire series on DVD.

    By season 3, the show started to get too goofy, for my taste. Due to this, I have no plans to get the rest of season 3, along with seasons 4 and 5. However, I might try to get season 2 on DVD, someday.

    The show being goofy was always part of its charm.

    And the series gets much better and more towards action from Season 6 and up.

    I might get this if Best Buy has it cheap enough. Odds are it won't be anywhere near the 100 price tag considering how cheap the individual season sets were when they were released.

    At least this will give people a chance who missed the earlier releases to get the volumes they may have missed. These days I can only find various volumes of season 3, and the 'Red Sky' seasons in stores.
