ULTIMATE BOX SET

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Someone under this has given this set ONE star for reasons of not having seen it!! I hope Amazon will delete this nonsense, because this gives people the wrong idea. This set is ESSENTIAL for every serious movie collector, everyone who likes to look a bit further than there noses are, everyone enjoying a good film, everyone with a sense of humor and everyone with something even remotely resembling some good taste. THE TOXIC AVENGER is one of the greatest creations in film history, his adventures in Lloyd Kaufman's films some of the most unique ever committed to cellulloid. This set contains the first three of Toxie's films PLUS a disc full of otherwise unavailable adventures of the animated spin-off THE TOXIC CRUSADERS, probably Troma's most successfull franchise to date. This fourth disc is worth the price of the set alone, add the other THREE films (and all of this loaded with extra's, as is Troma's custom) and this is the best buy on DVD of the millennium.
To get ready for the soon-to-be dvd-release of Lloyd Kaufman's ultimate masterpiece (and he has made quite a few) THE TOXIC AVENGER PART IV: CITIZEN TOXIE, the Tox Box is an essential MUST-buy. Forget all the prejudiced criticisms about Troma: it is one of the most innovative and original filmcompanies, and the longest in business of all independants. And still creating unique works of art.
Get this box - you won't regret it."
A Fun Movie

"I agree with most of what Ton says about Toxic Avenger and the sequels.Is it a masterpiece? Yes! Is it a classic? Yeah! Is it a fun movie? Definately!! It's a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants movie that has cute chicks and off the wall violence. What more do you want in a popcorn movie? The sequels are just as fun to watch. Here's a synopsis I found on The Toxic Avenger Website:The Toxic Avenger is a thrilling, one-of-a-kind, action-packed film loaded with adventure, horror, science-fiction and unforgettable big-budget special effects. Welcome to Tromaville, New Jersey-a small American town, which is being terrorized by criminals while the town's corrupt mayor sits idly by. Muggers, robbers and teenage punks run rampant as the citizens are helplessly victimized.Among the residents of Tromaville is Melvin, a skinny, weak, wimp of a young man. Melvin is the janitor at the local health club, and as he goes about his daily menial tasks, he is forever teased, taunted and tormented by the strong, "beautiful" men and women of the club. That is, until Melvin becomes THE TOXIC AVENGER!!!!! A particularly nasty group of Melvin's tormentors devise a plot to embarrass and ridicule him in front of the whole town. As fate would have it, the "harmless" prank turns into a horrible accident as Melvin crashes through a third story window and lands in a vat of hazardous toxic chemicals. The rest, as they say, is history! As the toxic chemicals take hold of Melvin's body, a strange and wonderful transformation begins to take place. Through the magic of spectacular state-of-the-art special effects, Melvin the weakling turns into the huge, hulking "TOXIC AVENGER"-the first super-hero from New Jersey! The excitement is non-stop as this monstrous mess of mutated man sets out to single-handedly wipe out the forces of evil, which taint the town of Tromaville. THE TOXIC AVENGER is non-stop entertainment that will leave viewers glowing from the fun!
Copyright Troma, Inc. 2000 Thanks Troma and keep making those movies!!The Dude from Barbados has no right to write a review and rate the movie...he hasn't even seen the movie! How could you rate a movie one star? You haven't seen the bloody movie!! I find that somewhat disrespectful to the shoppers who haven't seen the movie and it's very disrespectful to those who have and love The Toxic Avenger. So next time, please do not rate and review a movie you have not seen. I do however sugest .. to get rid of his review and his stinking one star!"
If you don't own this, why are you even alive?

"The Toxic Avenger, the crown jewel of Tromaville Productions. Melvin certainly has come a long way. From a hot blind girlfriend at the dump (Who does her makeup anyway?), to Japan and cooking villians in the bathhouse. The Toxic Avenger is a dynamite, soul brother, action adventure for the whole family. Seriously, what other movie has a leotard wearing freak pointing a double barreled shotgun at a baby? Or a chick masturbating to pictues of bodies her boyfriend ran over? How do you fight with fish? Can you windsail from New Jersey to Japan? How many people can Toxie fight at once? All these and many more questions are answered. Buy this now or live a miserable and empty life."

"This set contains four seperate dvd cases. The Unrated FULL edition of The Toxic avenger (great disc, see singular review), Toxic Avenger (Which, up to this point has been sorely lacking in violence and gore), Toxic Avenger 3 ( in amazing extras filled disc) and a dvd of the animated film Toxic Crusaders, basically four episodes of the old kids cartoon (based, incredibly, on the toxic avenger) stiched together. The last disc is suitable for anyone, whereas the others are extrememly gory.
All comes in lovely card box with lenticular 3d cover art.
(Although the editions of Toxie 1,2,3 look like the independant releases, they are new editions exclusive to the boxset, with all the old stuff and a li'l bit more"
