If you're a child of the '80's or 90's, then you probably grew up watching "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." This set collects all of the individual Lions Gate DVD releases to present the entire series in one box set. Those individual releases had some errors, all of which are repeated here since the disc contents are identical. Most of the errors are with the episode order, including 2 episodes from season 5 that were missed when that set was released, so those episodes are actually found on the season 10 disc. Some episodes are also presented multiple times across the discs. This set would have received 5 stars, but loses some points due to these errors. The disc count could have been decreased as well if they chose to redo them for this set. Some discs contain as many as 13 episodes, while others have as few as 7. If they cut out the repeated episodes, corrected the episode order, and averaged the episodes per disc, they could have saved some plastic.
The packaging is visually impressive, looking like the Turtles' Party Van. The inside has slots covered in fabric to prevent the discs from touching. It is easy to remove individual discs without touching the bottoms as well. The top is also padded. The packaging has a few flaws though. The top half doesn't secure in any way other than simply resting on top of the discs. It would have been better to have it either hinged or have a way for it to snap in place. If it were to fall off a shelf, your discs will go flying everywhere. It also comes with a booklet with an episode guide and bonus feature listing. It doesn't really fit inside the van, unless you bend it around the top of the discs. It should have been made smaller or had a compartment for it.
Due to the new Nickelodeon series, all of the Lions Gate releases are now out of print with no current plans to re-release these episodes. The complete series set now comes with a pretty steep second-market value. Used sets can sometimes be found for as cheap as $50, but new sets are rarely seen available for under $150. If you just want the episodes, the individual releases are much easier to come by (Amazon still has all of them in stock). Collecting them all that way is MUCH cheaper than this set and the only thing you miss out on is the party van. You still get every episode and bonus feature if you buy them separately.
