Well yesterday was the drop of the first of many MLP dvds, The Friendship Express. Its kind of depressing when you compare it next to another resent release for the Transformers fans, a Blu-Ray disc with all sorts of extras on it. But as I’ve said before, this is a product that is being produced for the retailers to throw at children’s parents in the check-out line, someday in the future we might get that DVD we all want to add to our collection, but this isn’t it. And don’t blame Shout! Factory, they are doing what Hasbro wants, and probably what they could do with I’m sure a limit budget for producing the DVD. No one has screamed that The Last Roundup was edited, so its safe to assume its version 1 as promised on the DVD, which does make it worth purchasing in a way.
But there seems to be a few errors going on with the DVD, at least one major one (unless it was just the one person), but minor mistakes here and there.
- Rainbow Dash is missing her cutie mark on the back cover.
- Episode One seems to have a sound sync issue, by the time it ends its about 500ms off from the scene.
- G3 Movie Trailer between the FBI warning and Main Menu (okay, not exactly an error, just good old product placement).
- The Character Bios are for Rarity, Twilight, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Fluttershy and Celestia. Rainbow Dash utterly missing.
- Celestia’s bio claims that she is the only pony born with both wings and a horn. (Luna, Forever Alone).
