AUSTIN, TX – May 10, 2018 – On June 5th, Rooster Teeth and Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) are sharing the latest edition of the award-winning animated series RWBY when RWBY: Volume 5 arrives on transactional digital platforms, including Steam, iTunes and XBOX,  as well as DVD, Blu-Ray+DVD combo pack, and a Special Edition Blu-ray+DVD Combo Pack featuring a 32-page RWBY Official Manga Anthology Sampler exclusive to FYE. The RWBY Official Manga Anthology is from the upcoming Weiss book from VIZ Media.

 

“We love how passionate the fans of RWBY are. Volume 5 received such a great reaction and we’re really looking forward to be able to provide these episodes along with a behind-the-scenes look at the series through the bonus features,” said Gray G. Haddock, Head of Animation at Rooster Teeth.

 

In RWBY: Volume 5 Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they all share one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it’s the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it’s clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who’s going to come out on top?

 

The home entertainment release of RWBY: Volume 5 includes every action-packed episode from the fifth volume of the critically acclaimed phenomenon, plus special bonus features including:

 

5 Years RWBY

“5 Years of RWBY” is a behind-the-scenes retrospective that explores how the production of RWBY has changed over the years. This exclusive content includes never before seen interviews.

 

Weiss Character Short

All her life, Weiss Schnee has lived a privileged and pampered life… but it did not come without its own hardships.                               

 

Blake Character Short

The White Fang was once a peaceful organization fighting for true equality for the Faunus. Over the years, however, many members began to favor violent and extreme tactics in order to demand respect from the humans of Remnant. Though Blake Belladonna eventually decided to leave the White Fang and its growing acts of terror, not all of her friends made the same decision.                               

 

Yang Character Short

You know that Ruby is unstoppable with her scythe, but Yang knows the true power of hand-to-hand combat. In the midst of a weapon-free training session, can Yang convince her sister of the importance of fighting without a weapon?

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
