Transformers Generation 1 - The Complete First Season - 25th Anniversary Edition

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.

I have all of the Rhino seasons, so unless this set is offering anything really new & updated, I'll pass!

i have all of rid, commercial free, on 3 VHS. wish i had someway to make them into dvd....

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 was located on his RIGHT arm not his left.

wasn't their a uk release of rid? i know that uk blu-rays will play in the ps3, i just bought tf:tm 1986 on blu-ray from over there. anyone know if reg region 2 dvds play too?

There is a UK release in the pal region 2 format. It's on my want list but I can't buy them for the moment

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.

This is just great! But I really hope there are some extras included!!!

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'll have them all)!

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.

I was thinking this too, but I'll most likely keep the rhinos

If it's a good deal and the complete series, I may entertain these.

If not, back to plan A.

It's about time.
