The final episodes of Saban’s Beetleborgs Metallix are set to be released on DVD by Shout! Factory this May.
Broadcast on Fox Kids from 1996-1998, Beetleborgs was a loose adaptation of the 1995 Metal Hero series Heavy Armor B-Fighter and its 1996 sequel, B-Fighter Kabuto. In the series, three children accidentally release a phantasm or “Phasm” from a pipe organ in a haunted mansion. To thank them, he grants them one wish, which they promptly use to become their favorite comic book superheroes, the Beetleborgs. Unfortunately, the wish not only gives them the ability to transform into their heroes, but also accidentally releases their comic book enemies. Season 2 turned the show into Beetleborgs Metallix as they transitioned into the B-Fighter Kabuto footage with new villains and monsters.
The announcement comes after popular demand from fans due to the lack of announcement following the release of Season 2, Volume 1 in 2013. The DVD set contains the final 17 episodes of the second season, Beetleborgs Metallix.
Beetleborgs Metallix: Season 2, Volume 2 will be released on DVD May 5th for $24.98, and is currently available for pre-order.
