This would be the DVD bargain of the year...if disc 1 played

"This attractive set includes all three of the English-only Teknoman collections that were previously released separately. There are a total of 43 episodes on six DVDs. The discs are packed in three lavishly-illustrated keepcases (two discs per case...obviously), which are housed in a spiffy cardboard slipcover. The packaging looks so cool and the price is so nice that you may have trouble containing your excitement. But don't get too excited until you've successfully watched the last three episodes on the very first disc. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to get a rare working copy. I was not so lucky, so I gave up after my second replacement. I guess there must be a bad batch of these sets out there that all contain defective disc 1's that freeze and skip after the fourth episode on many (or all) brands of DVD players and cause computers to crash. So good luck to you if you're buying this potentially-awesome complete Teknoman collection. If your set is trouble-free, you'll gladly give it five stars. As for me, I can only give it one."
The whole series english dubbed for a real economical price!

"I bought this set yesterday. This is the saban version. The english dub is quite good. The intro and ending credits are in japanese. There's no subtitles or original japanese soundtrack. No other extras of the show. Just all 43 episodes. The first disc works fine. It plays all the episodes in that disc and all the other discs. Looks like I either got the corrected disc replacement one or one of the rare ones that doesn't skip episodes. But there is a very minor flaw for instance when there is a dialogue the lips of the animated characters pause a bit while the audio track is playing. Which occurs very little to even notice. There's also some nudity. Like Blade's, Shara's, etc. tekno power transformation. I thought this version was censored. Guess I was wrong. The boxset is very nice. It has nice artwork. It is the previous separate three collector cases with the same art work. A total of 6 discs. Being 2 discs inside each case. With the addition of a cardboard collectors box with the same art as the first collection case that holds all three cases together. The whole cardboard set is plastic wrap sealed ,and so are each of the three cases. It's a pretty good value for under 20 bucks. If you get the correct version."

"This collection is an awesome price. If you saw the Teknoman series on TV in the U.S. then for the most part it's the same. I did not see all the episodes on TV though. Not all of them aired in the U.S., I heard. The DVD collection does not have the same introduction as seen in America. It instead has the japanese opening. I wasn't too hot about the intro on the collection as it's the same for every episode I assume. I haven't finished watching all the discs yet. The other teknomen have names like dagger, axe and so on. The american episodes had gunner, cain etc. It seems that there is a problem with all of the disc 1's in this collection. I have read other reviews and they have had the same problem. Episodes 4 and above start skipping, resulting in the end of the episode on disc one only. The rest of the discs are fine I believe. This collection is a good price, but good luck on getting a defect free disc 1 in it. The first one I got and then exchanged for another set, have the same problem. I have played the disc 1 in a few different DVD players and a blu-ray player and it's a problem in the disc."
Teknoman with a Tekkaman touch

"Ok, what we get here is a new edition of Teknoman. It has the Japanese intro, but the episodes are Saban's Teknoman english dub. Also, this version is uncensored, and there are some scenes from Tekkaman wich are included, for example the final fight with Sabre is an extended version, just like Tekkaman Blade is.
I grew up with the Spanish versión, which aired in Latin America. That's why Teknoman is one of my favorite anime. This collection is highly recommended to anyone who watched Teknoman years ago. Enjoy!"

"This was a re-release of the US version, there was 2 versions of Teknoman "tekkaman" 1st release the main character Teknoman went by Slade, but the re-release they changed it to blade. My guess the 1st release was a miss-translation of the name. ^^ good luck finding it. use to come on UPN in the early 90's. other than that is a awsome anime series"
