Editorial Reviews

Transformers Prime deepens the epic mythology of both the Autobots and Decepticons, while starting fresh for a new generation of fans. Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Arcee, Ratchet, Bulkhead, and many others are back to "roll out" against Megatron's latest attempt to conquer Earth. And Megatron proves to be more powerful than ever, having acquired a rare element that allows him mastery over life itself. 'Team Prime' may be few against the Decepticon hordes, but they find increased strength via bonds forged with three human teenagers. Make no mistake, Transformers Prime delivers heavy metal action, and nail-biting suspense - but it also takes the human drama to levels as yet unseen by the franchise.

I grew up watching what is now called the "First Generation" of Transformers in the 1980's. Whenever new generations or spinoffs of Transformers have been released since the first generation, I've always been skeptical and I usually have ended up being disappointed.

NOT this time! This is a great show for Transformers fans of all ages.

One recommendation, I bought this before the entire first season was released on DVD (this is just the first five episodes of season one - a mini-movie introducing the show). Instead of buying this, I would spend a little more and get the entire first season of episodes - you'll be happy you did!

"Transformers", the popular entertainment franchise that many generations have grown up with, may it be playing with the toys or watching the animated series back in 1984, playing the video games or reading the comic books.

Needless to say, since the early '80s, millions have experienced "Transformers", especially in recent years with the release of film trilogy or the animated series which continues to air on television and of course, the many toys that continue to be popular with collectors and also children.

But within the last three years, fans have watched the animated series known as "Transformers Animated" becoming the latest "Transformers" animated series to be showcased on television beginning in 2007 and would last for three seasons through 2009.

Fans knew that there will be a newer version of the series coming out, but the question is what kind of series?

In 2010, the video game "Transformers: War of Cybertron" was released and was a well-received by gamers but also video game critics and it was revealed that the upcoming animated series would be set in the same universe as the video game.

And then by November 2010, Hasbro unveiled "Transformers: Prime", a CG animated television series which would air on The Hub and would first begin with a five-episode mini-series. And with one season having now been completed in 2011, a second season is set to air in 2012.

And it's this latest series that has been creating a lot of buzz among fans and viewers. With the CG animation and slightly darker storyline, the series would go on to win a Daytime Emmy Award for "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation" for background design and color design.

Transformers Prime is one of the best,action packed,new Transformers series since the G1 days!For starters all the main characters like Optimus,Megatron,Bumblebee,Starscream,and Arcee are amazing looking in robot or vehicle modes.I would like to see Bumblebee actually talk again,but this dosen't take away from how cool this series is.The characters and storylines pull you in from start to finish with great anticipation for the next episode.This is a vast improvement over the animated series done earlier.This is a great series for long time transformer fans and new fans just getting into transformers.The human characters of Raf,Miko,and Jack compliment the series very well and intrigate very well into the story lines along with their autobot counterparts.This edition is the first five episodes put together into one movie to kickstart the series into gear.Also Arcee looks the best she ever has in the series and kick's some major ass all around.Bottom line Transformers Prime is one kick-ass series that all transformer fans should give a try.Transformers Rule!!!

I have read and watched just about every variation of the series since its introduction in the 1980's. Transformers Prime is by the far the best telling of the transformers story to date, it combines canon material with original ideas to create a compelling story line for all ages. I would recommend this to anyone with even a fleeting interest in the Transformers. The voice acting is excellent and the computer animation is par with the feather films, I also greatly enjoyed the new title sequence that took the original G1 start and improved on it with the help of CG.

I hope they live up to what I have read and continue this series through it's third season, and I look forward to adding the DVD's to my collection.

What comes to mind when you think of "Transformers" in the last decade? Pain, disappointment, misery, loathing, nausea, Sam Witwicky, giant Decepticon testicles...

But one good thing has come from the cesspool of frat-boy wretchedness that Michael Bay has produced: "Transformers Prime," a series that takes the appearance of the big-budget movies... but actually has dignity, an overarcing plot, and focuses more on the giant robots. "Transformers: Prime - Darkness Rising" is the five-episode miniseries that began the long-running animated series, and despite some flaws (Miko) it's a solid springboard to the story.

There are two groups of shapeshifting alien robots on Earth -- the Autobots and the Decepticons. Guess which ones are the villains. While the Decepticons dwell on a starship in space, the Autobots live in an old military bunker in the wilds of Nevada.

When an Autobot is captured and executed by the Decepticons, three teenagers accidentally get caught in the crossfire -- tiny nerd Raf, responsible Jack, and clueless Miko. Since the Autobots are supposed to be a secret (except to their government liarson, Bill Fowler), this is a bit upsetting to them. But the Autobot leader Optimus Prime believes that now the Decepticons will target the kids, so he decides to keep them in their base.

Then the Decepticon leader Megatron returns to Earth -- and he's brought Dark Energon, a substance that can revive living machines as ravening zombies. Even regular machines can be transformed into dangerous creatures by it. Optimus Prime soon realizes what Megatron is planning -- to raise an army of undead Transformers on their dead home planet of Cybertron, and then transport them to Earth.
