Editorial Reviews

The Earth is the battleground in an age-old struggle for control over the universe. Ordinary looking planes, cars, and vehicles suddenly transform into mighty robots that wage war with the advanced armory of super technology. It's the Decepticons against the Autobots in a battle for the world's energy supply. With the help of human allies, the Autobots just might be able to keep control away from the power-hungry Decepticons. Featuring episode, "Rebirth 1-3," The Decepticons attack Autobot City in an attempt to steal the key to the plasma chamber on Cybertron. They succeed and Punch is badly damaged. The Decepticons (led by Cyclonus), ten Autobots (led by Hot Rod), and the key end up on the planet Nebulos.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of an era August 25, 2001
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD contains the last of the USA Transformers shows, the 3 part 'The Rebirth'. The series ends on a high note, with the Autobots reclaiming Cybertron to it's golden age and many new characters being introduced. But come to think of it, you're most likely a Transformer fan and know that already. You know you want this (even if only for the sake that it's the final episodes). As for this DVD, the menu screen is a bit bland and there are no extras, but there is one thing to crow about. The episode previews and recaps are included with the 3 episodes! This way you see the shows as they originally aired. I enjoyed this so much as I figured they'd drop them since all three parts are shown back to back. Also each episode is broken into 6 chapters for easy access to your favorite scens within them. The only thing I miss are the intro and outros to commercials, but it probably would've been weird to include them when there are no commercials. Now before rushing off to buy this DVD, remember that Rhino is planning on releasing the entire first season of Transformers in a box set early next year. If it sells well (I'm sure it will), the other seasons will most likely follow. Can you wait for the final series box set to be released? Didn't think so. So pick up this 'Heroes' DVD and enjoy. You won't regret it.

Format:DVD
I went to Best Buy, my neighborhood Mecca, and saw this in the DVD section and my jaw dropped 20 ft. "No way!!!" I have this taped from when I was in 5th grade back in '87, and yes, I still can quote 'em line by line. The Rebirth trilogy was my favorite episodes from the post-movie seasons. This DVD took me back to my childhood. I was in awe, just seeing the Transformers intro again. Man. But anyways...let's move on... =)
This was just a way cool story arc, albeit overly-saturated as Hasbro was bringing out the new line of Transformer toys and needed a vehicle to advertise all of them. Yes, soo many new characters were introduced and only had about one line each, but hey, you can't blame em. And Headmasters and Targetmasters? How does it all work? How come Arcee's head turns into Daniel's huge white exosuit? And since when did Spike get so dang smart to make all these technical modifications?! Hehe, just kiddin, enough nitpicking here for nitpicking's sake... =)
Now for the good part, tell Swoop good part. Well this 3 part story arc was a good way of ending the series' run in America, it does restore Cybertron to the Golden Age again. And Optimus Prime is back which rocks. The story was definitely more complex than the older episodes. I thought that the writers did a good job with what they had, to integrate all the new characters. The plasma energy was an interesting plot idea, teaching us more about the past of Cybertron, and Vector Sigma. There is a lot of action, which the scenes were well done. The music fit perfectly in all the scenes with a new soundtrack for this miniseries instead of the usual sets of tracks that the shows recycle over and over again. I could watch it over and over again. And Headmasters and Targetmasters? Pretty darn cool. Action. Yes. Very nice.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Last Hoorah for the Transformers February 9, 2004
Format:DVD
By 1986, the Transformers were still very popular, but fans had grown tired of the show, especially since its 3rd season changed its tone very drastically. It was more of a "space bonanza" kind of show and it no longer featured our hero, Optimus Prime. After the show's producers responded to the demands of the fans wanting Optimus Prime back, they ended Season 3 with his much-welcomed resurrection. They geared up for a 4th season, but by now, the popularity had waned, and thus the series ended with one last three-parter that was initially intended to launch the would-be 4th season. "Rebirth" introduced many new Transformers into the mix, most of them being the Headmasters (robots that transformed from the robots' heads) and the Targetmasters (robots that transformed from weapons).
Our story is about a planet called Nebulos, in which the society is fighting back against their evil rulers, "The Hive." The Hive control all the machinery and basically do their dirtywork. Several autobots crash-land on the planet after being pursued by the decepticons. The autobots had the "key to the plasma energy chamber" which was what the Transformers were forged from (or maybe it was just the autobots?). Once the decepticons find them on the planet, both robotic factions take sides and engage in combat. Optimus Prime discovers this because of Alpha Trion (who merged with Vector Sigma, recall), who says that Vector Sigma allowed Galvatron to know of the key. New battles are fought, new Transformers are introduced, and the decepticons are shot halfway across the galaxy while Cybertron hits another Golden Age.
Plotwise, it's ok, but most of the episodes spend time introducing the new characters and this planet that they're on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy! July 11, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
In this DVD you get the three episodes of Rebirth. They basically tell the tale of how Cybertron returns to its "Golden Age". Sure you could say they were advertisements, which they are in truth. But there is an exciting and some what intelligent story behind it. Everything that happens in the episodes happens for a reason (except Punch getting injured). Hot Rod and nine other Autobots get launched from Cybertron when an accident occurs, this leads them to Nebulos. Where the Nebulons have become enslaved by "The Hive". Eventually the Decepticons find out where the Autobots are and follow them. Thats where both sides become Targetmasters and Headmasters. Optimus Prime who is still on Cybertron ventures into Vector Sigma to find out what is going on, he gets his awnser. The rest is all told in the actual DVD.
As for the DVD itself, pretty good quality (I'm new to this stuff). No extras isn't that bad, the episodes themselves should hold you.
Its too bad this is the end of the U.S. Transformers. The entire time I watched the episodes I kept thinking that there should be more.
Watch for a great scene with Sixshot, were he takes out all of the Aerialbots on his own. Also the threats made by Galvatron towards the Hive members and Galvatron and Lord Zarek (leader of The Hive) at the end is quite funny (in my opinion).
Enjoy it, it is worth the money, whether your a hard-core Transformer fan or just someone reliving childhood memories.
