I posted on the Funimation forums (my pic and FFF4ever's comparison pic), hopefully somebody can get back to me on this and I can get a replacement disc somehow because an error on their end isn't cool.
If Funimation refuse to replace it, I have a friend who'd be interested in my copy and I could just buy myself a new one...But the new 1.11 DVD (and 2.22 DVD!) better not have the same issue as before or else I'll
: I think your best bet would be to post in this thread as well (registering is really quick): http://community.funimation.com/tm.aspx?m=486530
At least that way they'll see it's just not one person complaining and several people have this problem. (Which hopefully would push them in the direction to follow-through with a Disc Replacement!)
In remembering some more, I ordered my 1.11 copy from Rightstuf last November (when I lived in a different state no less), and according to their FAQ, they have a 90 day return policy.
So I believe firstname.lastname@example.org is who you have to contact (thanks to Dri for the information!)

In order to get a replacement DVD or missing component, you will need to contact the store or online retailer from where you purchased. Our retail partners handle exchanges and replacements for customers. If you still have problems after you visit your retailer, send an email to productconcerns@FUNimation.com, and they will walk you through the steps to receiving a replacement.
A Reply! ...Wow.
BOTH the Blu-Ray and DVD had changes after the first-printing!
In other words, FreakyFilmFan4ever
copy's is a first-print edition while mine's a later version.
Your disk is correct. A change was made to all disks after the first-run due to a contractual obligation with our licensor. I apologize for the inconvenience, but we are no longer producing the disk mentioned below.
I really hope this means that whatever extras they have for 2.22 are the same extras they'll have for ALL the disks... I mean, yes there's going to be licensing issues but...
Also, this is somewhat annoying for the fans who had no idea there WAS a change to begin with, but thems the breaks.
So I guess this means fans who want certain extras on their DVDs are going to be screwed out of them? The least you could do is post something about this somewhere, Funi! That way more people could have nabbed the first-press release when they had the chance!
This does bother me somewhat because principle of the thing and I'm anal-retentive like that.
For whatever it's worth, somebody started a thread on the Mania forums after my post(s) in the Funimation forums: http://www.mania.com/aodvb/showthread.php?p=1919774 Skimming the thread is what made me release that BOTH the Blu-Ray and DVD releases are missing extras with the later printings (eg, one guy said that he preordered the Blu-Ray had all the extras of the DVD release).
Maybe I should go ahead and buy Studio Khara's release of the films.
