I'm wondering if there's a quality difference between the Hasbro DVDs and the Rhino DVDs.
Hasn't Rhino released the Mass Device, Revenge of Cobra, Pyramid of Darkness, and Arise Serpentor, Arise all on DVD?
What do you guys think? Are the basically the same? Is one better than the other?

The Hasbro ones look more like straight transfers from the original material while the Rhino ones look like they were put through some filters.
The Hasbro ones are very bright and you see a bit more film grain than you do on the Rhino ones.
The Rhino ones are darker and look a little cleaner.
Also I think Rhino changed the audio for their releases to make it Dolby 5.0 or something (I'm not an audio guy so I don't know the technical aspect of this subject) I know that the background sound effects can be louder than the spoken words on some of the Rhino DVDs depending on what audio setting you have

Here's some comparison shots between the two. To be honest, until I made these pics just now, I didn't realise just how bad the Hasbro DVDs looked. But I am using the oldest of the Miniseries here (MASS Device Mini-series)

I think this thread only further demonstrates the tragedy and injustice of Rhino never releasing Season 2 Part 2. I many never get over that.
Why aren't there more Joes from the Deep South?
And would it kill Hasbro to give us a Marine Corps Officer?

Awesome comparison... that's why I refuse to get rid of my Rhino collection.

Maybe the movie will get the Rhino season rolling back out, or all new releases. One can hope.

Wow the washout on the Hasbro ones is pretty bad. I knew they are bare bones with no mods but yeesh.
Hopefully another company (like BCI) will license the Hasbro Sunbow library.

Hasbro's look like pure $hit!!! I only opened them hoping they'd free of chapter breaks that the Rhino sets have. The Rhino dvds look amazing on my HD TV while Hasbro's are cheap and look like my VHS copies.

Wow, those comparison shots are real eye-openers...The Rhinos look like they recieved some kinda THX-Style remastering, while Hasbros look like LaserDisc Transfers.
