They could've used the "Falcon's Crest" fan video that someone splice
together. If it's action they're trying to sell, they could do worse.

Nah, they're not going to do this. This is Bandai we are talking about
here. They do dubbing the right way, dub the uncut first, and edit to fit
whatever broadcaster wants. They can then release everything uncut, and cut
as they see fit. There will be an uncut bi-lingual DVD and uncut dub vhs.
There might also release the cut dub vhs, though I don't see a point in
that. (This is in contrast with Card Captor Sakura, where the cut and
reshuffel affect the story so much, they are releaseing 2 different version
of DVD, dub and cut only, and sub and uncut only).
