X-Men 'Almost' Ultimate Collection,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: X-Men Ultimate Collection [DVD] (DVD)
One of Marvels most popular animated series is here, all 76 episode released unto one collection, all digitally restored... unfortunately, the set does suffer from some issues.
The sound quality is good, however does come across rather tinny in some places, also, the first couple of series has the option of switching over to 5.1 surround, the rest, do not.
The main issue with the set, is that this is the 'Jetix' UK TV version, which basically means that these are not the complete, unedited, uncut episodes, though it is more noticeable in some episodes than others. Season 3, disc 2, ep10, just after Longshot is confronted by his pursuers for the first time, is one of the more noticeable edits, where Longshot jumps out of Jubilee's jeep and throws a bola at the feet of two of his pursuers, tripping them up, but getting grabbed by another pursuer and thrown to Spiral's feet himself. It's only a short scene, but it's one of many.
Lastly, there is only one special feature included in the set, around about a minutes worth of restoration comparison video footage, but nothing else what-so-ever.
To call this the 'Ultimate Collection', is rather misleading, as a ultimate collection would contain every episodes, completely uncut and unedited, 5.1 surround sound audio track for every episode, possibly an interview with Stan Lee on the series, character design sheets, downloadable content such as wallpapers, audio tracks, scripts, and many other things, to truly make the 'Ultimate Collection'. It would have been more honest to call this, the Series Collection!

Nope! Only seasons 1 and 2 have English subtitles, again another reason why this is not the ultimate X-Men collection :(
