And that's all 26 episodes, the storytelling may start out slow but improves greatly as the season moves along and there are plenty of later references to the original G1 series (perhaps most noteworthy is an episode where Starscream returns and possesses the body of Waspinator). The Characters are for the most part great with a wide array of personalities and just as many interesting bots on the heroes side as on the villains.Read more ›
I won't lie, it took a few viewings before I come around to liking the show. What put me off, at first, was the fact that it seemed aimed more towards kids..moreso than the Generation 1 Transformers cartoons. It was somewhat campy to me. Yet- after repeated viewings, I came around to liking this as much as everyone else does. I ended up getting the second and third seasons as well to complete my collection(look for my review on those seasons) and I'm glad I did.
Season 1 begins with the descendants of the Decepticons(now known as Predacons) landing on a planet in search of Energon. With Megatron coming up with dastardly plans to rule the universe, Optimus Primal and the Maximals must do everything they can to stop them beforehand.
There's 26 episodes, all in all, introducing you to a whole slew of new Tranformers and Decepticons. Be warned, though, Season 1 does have it's moments when it doesn't live up to its' greatness. If you can get past that, it's awesome. It's brought to you by the people that did the series Reboot(which I love and highly recommend).

Hi I just checked out Shout! Factory website, it says the complete series will be out on Jun. 7. However, it hasn't been listed on Amazon (I wonder why). I wish I could get the Complete set instead.
