I think they were referring to Master Ninja III with the FVI opening credits, which I don't even know if that actually exists or not. And if I'm not mistaken, were the FVI sources even released commercially or were they just syndicated to television?

Oh wow, I had no idea these were actually released onto VHS! I would love to find the Marooned, Los Nuevos Extraterrestres and The Stranger FVI edits in their Space Travelers, Pod People and Stranded in Space releases for the sake of having those clean intros and outros.
I've always had the sneaking suspicion that from Season 4 on, right before FVI got the hammer dropped on them, they were selling movies with the FVI treatment straight to Best Brains and skipping VHS distribution altogether, or at least BBI got first dibs. A direct-to-consumer kind of deal with BBI.
Hey that's the one I own! But yeah the weird FVI credits are not on that copy.
Interesting. I wonder, like Diet Kolos said, if those FVI tapes weren't made specifically for BBI. The version of MN1 you own is the only one I have found that is linked to FVI. Maybe there are others but I haven't seen them.
FVI Copyright and distributed by some company called Quality Video Inc (from Minneapolis, no less). Looks like something that would've come out in the very late 80s or early 90s. I'm tempted to buy it but I have no way to digitize it.

Quite random, but: Ed Montoro is Joe Bob Briggs' Most Wanted tonight on The Last Drive-In on Shudder, complete with a poster displayed on the stage. They're showing Montoro/FVI's Antropophagus, and Joe Bob is digging into the sordid story of Montoro and the company.
