? Finally, there’s more MST3K a-comin’. Shout Factory, who picked up the Mystery Science Theater 3000 DVD license from Rhino a while ago, have a listing for their first 4-volume release on Amazon, due on October 26th and priced at $49. There’s no word on which four episodes will be in the set?they’re clearly saving that info for SDCC?but they are calling it a 20th Anniversary set, which may or may not mean something. I’m praying for #701 Night of the Blood Beast, with the above short Once Upon a Honeymoon.
? The Silverhawks cartoon is coming to DVD this year, which should be fantastic news for at least eight of you. Sez TV Shows on DVD: “Silverhawks – Season 1, Volume 1 has been announced for release on October 14th. Cost is $44.98 SRP.”
? The Vehicle Voltron series, which even as children we uniformly hated, will be available on DVD for those of you whose memories have turned rose-colored from the passing of time. You can pre-order the 3-disc set for $24 on Amazon now, and it’ll roll out on September 30th.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
