Essential Bookend Box of Brilliance!!

"All episodes of the rare and impossible to find Toxic Crusaders TV series are featured in this 7-disc set. Only 4 have been previously released on DVD and getting the entire 13 episodes alone is worth the very affordable price of this set.
But, apart from that, of course the director's cut versions of the four classic Toxic Avenger films are included as well, along with the feature length documentary "Apocalypse Soon: The Making of Citizen Toxie", making this the most complete, affordable and essential set of any great filmfranchise.
You may have one or more of Toxies films already, and to be honest, without at least the first one no collection of important horror films can be taken seriously. (You might even, and possibly mistakenly, have picked up the R-rated version of the best film in the batch: Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger part IV".) But in any case you do yourself a big favour buying this box-set. Even if you are lucky enough to already own the (now discontinued) Tox Box you should get this new released COMPLETE TOXIC AVENGER set, not only because of the low price the complete Toxic Crusaders series and the Unrated Director's Cut versions of all included titles, but also because you could use bot boxes as beautiful bookends to mark your collection of Troma-films. And one simply can't have too much of Lloyd Kaufman's unique creation.
Don't forget to also read the unputdownable "The Toxic Avenger: The Novel", by the infatiguable Lloyd Kaufman and Adam Jahnke.
Toxic 2 is R-Rated version!

"Great box set - nicey packaged and at a reasonable price.My only gripe is that toxic 2 is the R-rated version and is missing many scenes of extreme gore which helped make up for the weakness of the sequel.Even Kaufman points out that this is the cesored version in the audio commentary.A shame that the UNRATED description as pointed out by amazon is a lie.BEWARE!!"

THE FIRST SUPER HERO........FROM NEW JERSEY!!!!!

"Where would we be without "The Toxic Avenger"? ("He's stressin' me Julie, he's stressin' me!") There would be no Tromaville, there would be no (Class of Nuke `Em High, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D., Tromeo and Juliet, Terror Firmer, Citizen Toxie or even "Tales from the Crapper"). Thanks to "Toxie" ("The first creature of superhuman size and strength from New Jersey") we have a Troma and he has put "Tromaville" on the map. A lot of people call them Z-grade movies, put down the actor's, scripts, story lines, special effects, director's, their way of filming or the fact they even (still) exist. ("All right everybody, drop your tacos or I'll blow your brains out.") Well because of this movie "The Toxic Avenger" they still exist. ("No ticky no washy!") They have plenty of other "killer" movies but if it wasn't for "Toxie" ("And you can tell all your scum friends that things are gonna change in this town. I'm not just another pretty face!") there might not have been any of those other "TROMA classics".
Definitely a MUST BUY (but do yourself a big favor and buy it from Toxie himself at the TROMA website where it comes with a lobby card that is signed by Toxie's creator & Troma's president Lloyd Kaufman and also by the other half of TROMA, the elusive Michael Herz). It's like $5.00 more but you will have THE COMPLETE TOXIC AVENGER set signed!!!! The one you get from Amazon (or Best Buy or wherever) does not come with the signed lobby card. That is only from TROMA. Plus you will be getting it directly from Toxie's creators. With this set you get all 4 "Toxic Avenger" films plus the complete "Toxic Crusaders" series, I also have the TOX BOX (with the 3D cover) but this set is still a must have for that series plus the excellent Citizen Toxie film, the best of the 3 sequels by far. If you have the guts (and we know Tromaville Mayor Belgoody had them...literally) you would definitely pick this box set up and support independent filmmaking. And remember "The next time your in danger or in need of help, look to the horizon and maybe, just maybe, the Toxic Avenger will be there."
