-->>..very tentative!!
T-drome Tumblings.. ..this continues what Mikey reported a few days ago..

Splinter sez:
"It seems we may have mini-series' co-writer David Wise to thank, for making sure we got the full episodes of the classic Turtles. It seems Artisan/Lion's Gate was all set for to release the edited 72-minute Epic Begins, but the huge stink raised by fans got to David Wise and he helped convince them to release the full episodes. Knowing that fans would likely go ballistic over the edited versions.

If you don't know who David Wise is, he's one of the writers for the series. And also was responsible for The Transformers, He-Man, Isis, Buck Rogers, Wonder Woman, Star Trek: The Animated Series, and Batman: TAS, as well as a LOT of the '87 TMNT episodes. The DVD will supposedly feature all five episodes, without opening and closing credits, except at the start and end of the 5 episodes.

As for cover art, there's been some confusion. Originally the one that appeared on DVDEmpire was believed to be just a mock-up art done by DVDEmpire. But Artisan/Lion's Gate revealed their April cover-art, and it is very similar to what was originally shown. So it looks like that's what we're getting. Note that it's still not the final art. Since it's missing several necessary markings on the case. But it does appear to be what we may be getting.
