What is the MSRP of this? I was contemplating getting the footlocker, but if I can get each of the sets for $20 or less, definitely go the cheap route. They'll fit much better in my DVD shelf that way too.

MSRP is $30 for the first set. Amazon had it on sale for $25. 3 of the sets should be MSRP $30 with one being more due to a 5th disc. The box set has 17 discs and the first set here has 4. 4 x 4 would only equal 16 discs.

The first set is on sale right now at Best Buy for $19.99.
The footlocker box set is going to retail at $145.00, but I gaurantee the price will drop, or it will be on sale the first week or 2 of it's release.

How does the audio compare to Rhino's? I am very disappointed Shout is not putting the 5.1 track on these discs, which I think is inexscusable when one exists.
Anyway, I'm hoping I'll be able to afford to the big set at the end of the month, but if not, I'll just buy the singles.

Mind you this is old news as it came out a few months ago and back then they said it would be sold first at Comic Con then online then at retail. Now we have the online before comic com but it's only a pre-order so the idea that you can buy it "first" at SDCC still stands

BUT... the audio has what I call the "GREASE" audio (for the recently released GREASE on Blu-ray release) effect in which the music is much louder than the center channel audio. The music overpowers the dialogue.
I was watching the scene where Shipwreck is attacking underwater and the music on the surrounds were so loud that I couldn't hear him speak and I would have to adjust the center channel. I rarely have to adjust a center channel to hear the dialogue and only once and that was for "GREASE".
But it can be adjusted on my receiver but I have to give the audio round to RHINO. I enjoyed the fact that surrounds and rear surrounds were utilized for music and special effects, front channels with effects and LFE for the booms.
As a matter of fact, for RHINO's version, my receiver output is set at Dolby Digital. For SHOUT, receiver did not pick up the Dolby Digital 5.1 and in order to get the best listening feature, I had to select stereo on all channels because front channel was not delivering the same type of audio sound that I was getting from the RHINO version.
For video, I did another test through my main system and SHOUT's version is a bit more vibrant and has less compression it seems. So, this round goes to SHOUT.

In the end, it all comes down to those who are wanting to own Season 1.1 for a lower cost, will be easy to find once it's released. The set is definitely a great incentive with all that it comes with.
Season One DVD Trailer
Complete Series: Product Demo
But for those who do own the RHINO sets, I wouldn't sell them off (unless you want to cash in on them and need the money I suppose) but they are still worth hanging onto for the additional special features and the 5.1 soundtrack.
I didn't realize how many vocal talent were involved in the animated series. I am absolute surprised that they didn't have many actors do multiple voices (although I see Wikipedia mentions Chris Latta, Frank Welker, Neil Ross and Pat Fraley doing multiple characters). Also surprised that Francois Chau ("LOST" Dharma Initiative guy) was Quick Kick...hehe...
But I do have a question for those who may know the answer to this. Looking at the features for the complete series, was this voice cast reunion done at a GI Joe event or Comic-Con? Also, how is the live action fan film "Battle for the Serpent Stone"?
