Transformers Generation 1 - The Complete First Season - 25th Anniversary Edition
Primus - Thursday, March 05, 2009


For those of you waiting for the Generation 1 cartoons to return, this could be your day. WalMart.com has posted a product listing for the "DVD: Transformers: The Complete First Season - 25th Anniversary Edition: More Than Meets The Eye, The (Full Frame)" DVD set on their web site. Additionally, the product descrption is as follows:
    During the 1980s, one cartoon series ruled the airwaves..."The Transformers". This is the complete first season that launched "The Transformers" entertainment franchise. It ran beginning in 1984 and introduced audiences to "The Transformers", sentient robotic beings from Cybertron who crash land on Earth in search of Energon and must fight between two factions, Autobots and Decepticons. Includes 16 episodes from Season One on 3 Discs.
Sounds a lot like the Rhino Season 1 set, but without the extras DVD. Judging from the release date of June 16th, Uninversal / Vevendi will be looking to capitalize on the fans interest in Revenge of the Fallen that will be out in theaters on June 24th.

Has anyone else noticed that the cover art of the DVD set is wrong/backwards. For as long as I've seen Optimus Prime shout his blaster in the movie and three-ish seasons of the TV series he's always shot it with this right hand, not left as shown in art. Plus Megatron's Fusion Cannon w... read more

I would LOVE to have RID show up on DVD. That is one of the only series that I am missing. I have the Rhinblow version of G1, so I doubt I'll be able to justify picking this one up. Still, as others have said, it is cool for those that missed it.

Willing to bet they're gonna go the Energon/Cybertron route "As Seen On TV" and thats about it. Once Sony gave up on the releases, I flushed all hopes of further remastering or features :tfemo Still I hope the hype gets someone out there to put out a dubbed BW 2&NEO(then I'l... read more

I have the Rhino DVDs. I was contemplating selling them though as they seem to fetch a high price and get a cheaper import set. If it's a good deal and the complete series, I may entertain these. If not, back to plan A.

Looks like the Autobot leader will be joining this year's Hallamark holiday tree ornaments offering this year. We knew about the Soundwave and Last Knight Hot Rod, but the addition of the Generation 1 styled Optimus Prime is a little bit of a surprise, literally. As this one seem to be scaled down a bit from the previous edition.
Imaginarium Art posted a new teaser to Facebook for a future statue project, keeping up a constant pace of releases under development. The newest subject of their attention? Why, none other than Galvatron! The silhouette is unmistakable, and it may imply an interesting display base. Galvatron's shadow is planted atop the shape of Cybertron, so the resulting display piece may itself be Galvatron standing atop the planet. Unknown right now when we'll see more out of this development, but the prototype stage ought to be interesting when they're ready to share it!
