[BLU-RAY] NJPW G1 Climax (1991)


RudoReels

Recommended Posts

First off, over the next few days I'll be releasing various projects I've been working on. Some small, some big, some a continuation of past projects, some that are "something different." I would suggest waiting for the last announcement in case you're interested in more than one set.

 

The last wave of releases went very smoothly, and most got their orders faster than I assume they'd have expected, and I hope to keep that up here. But bear with me just in case as delays happen due to the nature of the products. Any feedback in the proper locations/threads is always appreciated.

 

So... I'm pleased to announce the next installment in the RudoReels.com G1 Climax run. We last did 2013 and it was very well received. Now, we've taken a trip back in time to 1991, when it all started. Like all of our other releases, this features a fantastic cover and menu design by Truth of Sin Designs, a.k.a. GreaterMuta. Featuring classic images of Shinya Hashimoto and Jushin Liger, this one-BD50 set represents the history and prestige of everyone's favorite long-running puroresu tournament, the G1 Climax.

 

This set is compilation-style and features segments originally released/compiled by Dan Ginnetty, but I mixed the non-tournament matches back into the cards so the cards can be watched in chronological order. (Different strokes.) In addition, the final has been upgraded to a modern re-airing from my recording of the first episode of the recent "Legend of the G1 Tournament" series. This set also includes two complete handheld events and the NJPW commercial VHS release. Also...extra care has been given to each segment, with fades in/out to black to provide seamless viewing between matches from a variety of sources.
