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.

More Generation 1 News
Transformers At The Moon has posted the latest in their series of deleted audio and extended scenes from the original 1984 The Transformers cartoon series! This time, they've got over ten minutes' worth of dialogue from "Heavy Metal War," featuring the first appearance of the Constructicons. Keep reading to see the video along with a transcript of the dialogue.
The closure of ToysRUs provokes a lot of emotions - sadness, frustration at the circumstances, and in some a misguided sense of satisfaction stemming from their latter-day pricing habits. But at some point in our lives a great many of us were ToysRUs Kids. And so longtime Transformers fan and ASMzine proprietor Phil Zeman has created the site I Didn't Want to Grow Up, which is accepting submissions of your stories and reminiscences of visiting what was once the premiere source of action figures for children and collectors. Click through for a link!
Few would guess the last piece to be reissued from the original Transformers Generation 1 series would be the music scores. Even thought the original cartoons have been reissued, updated and restored multiple times. Fans that have been asking for copies of the Original Sound Tracks (OST) masters have finally gotten theirs, on vinyl of all things. IF, they were fast enough to buy one of the 2,000 copies that sold out in less than 10 minutes. The good news is a second pressing is in the works.
ALL GOOD THINGS…! Rodimus and the Crusadercons have reached their final destination. The trouble is, it’s not Cyberutopia. In fact, it’s not ANYWHERE. But they’d better get used to it, because they’re going to be there until the end of Time…
After selling out their limited run within minutes, Enjoy The Ride Records has announced that their vinyl G1 soundtrack LP will be heading back to the presses later this year! Details and an exact timeframe are not known at this time, but it's good to know that access to this (at present) vinyl-only release will be expanding somewhat. Keep reading to see the announcement!
