Megas DVDs! Sort of...


Although not the two season Blu-Ray box-set everyone's been clamoring for, here's the next best thing until then - a cool limited-edition, 96 page Cartoon Network comic featuring Megas, along with a DVD of the very first episode.

Click on the paypal/credit card button on the right column of this blog to order a signed set of these impossible-to-find Megas promotional items for only $30 - shipping & handling is free!

What dose it take to continue the series?

Stephen said...

I don't even mind if it's not continued, I just want a DVD set of the whole series.

Maybe buying this will make that happen eventually.

I so desperately want the megas xlr dvds i would seriously reserve it and everything. Why has cartoon network released samurai jack on dvd but not Megas XLR? and is there any possibility to read any of the 3rd seasons uncompleted scripts?

From a sincere fan with high hopes please respond.

Hey guys - thanks for all the kind comments. Not sure what the issue is with CN and DVDs, but I don't think we'll see official sets anytime in the near future.

And I'd love to post our third season stuff, but we never got very far before we were shut down - just rough ideas mostly. We were however working on a feature, but it got killed as well.

A MEGAS movie that sounds awesome it's too bad about the cancelation. Well I guess in some ways it's better MEGAS ended with the 2 great season kind of like invader zim but i still wish there was a few more episodes. I just found this and I was wondering if this was a legal copy its called "MEGAS XLR Animated Series DVD Boxset" I figured it be best to ask you since I found nothing about this on cartoonnetwork.com.

Interestingly enough, I found a bootleg copy of MEGAS at a Convention recently (if there is ever a release I WILL buy it).

Anyway, after I showed it to Steve Blum he signed it saying "Well I gotta sign this one".

George K. said...

Hey Izy - no that's not an authorized boxset, but since CN isn't in any hurry to put one out, nab that sucker.

And Troy - that's bad ass that they are selling bootlegs at cons, AND you got Steve to sign your copy. Bad-azz. Which con was it? I wanna get one...

I bought IT at Mechacon in Lafayette, LA. Unfortunately, it was kind of a crappy copy. Only the first episode actually worked so I am in the process of making a copy for myself. In addition, it was actually kind of random that I found it there, just saw it laying in a DVD bin.

But hey, the box art isnt bad and it's signed so thats gotta count for something

Thats cool you are ok with your fans buying the dvd even though its not official but i personally hate buying boot legs or unofficial copies. Those are never are as good or have as many bonus features. I will just hold out until some day there is a box set until then i will just you tube for my Megas fix.

I remember buying this at my local comic shop about 3 to 4 years ago, knowing I had paid $7.95 for not a crappy book, but the DVD that came inside. I proudly still have the DVD and still enjoy it to this day, even moreso now that i'm an older!

Wish Williams Street would air Megas XLR instead of paying money for accquasisitions that fail like Clerks:TAS (Though that was their fault), The PJ's (Which hasn't, but will), and recent anime(Which was also their fault do to almost no promotion and constant time slot switching)

Long live Megas!

I don't have Paypal, is there another way I can buy the DVD? Like with money order or just a credit card?

George K. said...

Chris,

I think paypal allows you to use a credit card.

Cartoon Network is racist! Just because Megas isn't drawn and a stupid cartoony style they hate it!

Its interesting to me that Mr. K says Megas XLR was never released onto DVD because I too have wanted it to be available. I have searched all over the internet to try to find out if they existed and I found some sites that claim they have the DVDs
