Speed Racer - Back of Volume 4 Box Confirms It: 8 Episodes, No Extras

Posted by David Lambert
We reported more than a week ago that the March 14th release of Speed Racer - Volume 4 will only have 8 episodes on it, instead of the sixteen episodes we all hoped for which would finish off the series' DVD run. In our report, we editorialized about how we hoped Lionsgate would at least include some extras on this release, and pointed out where some ready-made bonus material was sitting around waiting to be used. Apparently our hopes were in vain.

Lionsgate has sent out the rear cover art for Speed Racer - Season 4, and it confirms what our industry sources have said: 8 episodes (the exact ones we listed over a week ago), the Mach-5 die-cast toy car which we showed you the other day...and that's it. No extras. $22.98 SRP. Like our friend Bill Hunt over at The Digital Bits, we're pretty frustrated and disappointed by this strategy.

Below you will see the same "outer" box art we presented the other day, with the die-cast toy Mach-5 in it. Below that is the keepcase inside that box, which actually holds and stores the DVD. And at the bottom is the rear cover art that we're talking about.
