Mandarin Storm Riders

Comes from Thunder Media in Taiwan, not Universe. Hence, it is extremely logical that Universe wouldn't be selling it, don't you think?

It's not a bootleg but it is a subpar release of the movie. I wonder how many unknowing folks poker pulls in by listing this title on eBay and Half.com. I almost ordered it once before doing the research and realizing that Cantonese is the original language.

This would be the bootleg

http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI...tem=1445235280

The above is the bootleg, sourced via Malaysia. The bootlegs all feature at least cantonese audio. The other possibililty for a Mandarin only release would be a Mainland release via Universe affiliate WA. I've not see any pictures of the "Universe" cantonese cheapie version so I couldn't say for sure.

Would be the thuner media release from Taiwan. A legit release.

Mandarin-only Stormriders

From everything I've seen I'd bet a tael that what we're talking about is the WA version. Here's why I'm thinking this.

I bought a Stormriders through an E-bay dutch auction from [email protected]. I didn't do my research and ended up with a Mandarin-only version. The case is definitely labelled Universe. Since then I've seen the exact same version listed at both Poker and HKFlix. Neither company has the disk in stock as of 7/10 but in both cases it's listed as a budget alternative to the full boat version.
This is just one more reason to be extra careful when finding a deal on E-bay that seems too good to be true.

storm riders

I have investigated the Storm Riders debate. and found that there are 4 diffrent real versions 1) Universe and laser full edition and a Universe and laser Cinese version with no extras 2) Thunder media version 3) a Beijing version 4) a canandian version wich is cut about 30 minutes and is only in english dubbed.

so the conclusion is ..... The online seller Poker ind. is indeed selling originals so is hk flix and stiller66.

the editions on ebay that are cheap and say that they are cantonese and mandarin are indeed malaysion bootlegs.

I hope i cleared this matter for I started this waste of time thread.
