Product Description

For centuries across the universe, Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) and the Autobots have battled their greatest foes, Megatron (Frank Welker) and his army of Decepticons. But on Earth they face a new threat: discovery by the human race. By using their unique ability to disguise themselves as common Earth vehicles, the Autobots have managed to avoid detection and the risk of escalating their war to disastrous proportions. But now they require the assistance of three young human allies (Jack, Miko and Raf ) along with Special Agent Bill Fowler (Ernie Hudson, Ghostbusters) not only to help keep their secret but also to defeat the sinister Decepticons once and for all!

From Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the writing team behind the megablockbuster Transformers feature films, and executive producer Jeff Kline comes an all-new series of sophisticated adventures for the Autobots, Decepticons and their human allies that boasts stellar computer animation and an impressive voice cast including Adam Baldwin (Chuck), Clancy Brown (Lost), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Dwayne The Rock Johnson (G.I. JOE: Retaliation), John Noble (Fringe), Tony Todd (Final Destination) and Gina Torres (Firefly).

Also included in this limited-edition set: the 96-page Transformers: Prime prequel graphic novel by IDW Publishing!

Transformers fans disappointed by the live-action Michael Bay films and various animated permutations of their favorite Cybertronians' adventures may find some solace in the Emmy-winning Transformers Prime, a CGI series that harks back to the Transformers' heyday while adding welcome layers of depth and grit to the characterizations. There's also a touch of darkness in its central storyline, which has Decepticons Megatron (Frank Welker) and Starscream (Steven Blum) mining Dark Energon to create a "zombie" army of robots to defeat a quintet of Autobots, led as always by Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen). Aiding the Autobots in their defense of the Earth are a government agent (Ernie Hudson) and a trio of school kids who serve as a conduit between Optimus's team and the human race. As outlined by producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (who penned two of the Bay-directed Transformers films), the action shifts between the Autobots' battles with the Decepticons and Megatron's attempts to wrest control of his minions from the rebel Starscream. The season comes to a head with its cliffhanger finale, which resurrects the robot-god Unicron (Fringe's John Noble), forcing Cybertronians on both sides of the moral fence to pick up arms against a common and devastating enemy. It's a thrilling end point to a largely terrific season with high points (Cullen and Welker reviving their '80s-era roles, Firefly vets Adam Baldwin and Gina Torres as Decepticons Breakdown and Airachnid, and cult movie hero Jeffrey Combs as Ratchet; Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson pops up briefly as well) overshadowing the lows (the unremarkable, occasionally grating young heroes). There are also 15 commentary tracks (for a 26-episode series), all featuring cast and crew members including Cullen, Hudson, Combs, producer Jeff Kline and Rafi Ruthchild, composer Brian Tyler, and even executives from Hasbro; the latter is also present for a toy featurette that exceeds the standard advertising-disguised-as-featurette pitfall by looking at unreleased characters and the conception of newer ones. The Making of Transformers Prime is a bit more by the book: it's a production by the series' broadcast network, the Hub, and covers the usual subjects (voice cast, past Transformers incarnations) without much fanfare. A 20-second preview of season two, which debuted at New York Comic Con in 2011, rounds out the extras. --Paul Gaita

Transformers Prime is one of the best!I have been a transformer fan since the beginning in the 1980's and this takes me back to that time with how great of a series this is.This series is as good as any from the G1 days with amazing action and solid storylines from the first episode to the final episode.One thing I will agree with from another review is that I would have rather seen Ironhide in the series instead of Bulkhead,but maybe they will bring him into the action in season 2.Also I would have liked to see Bumblebee actually talk again,but this is a minor detail compared to how awesome an all around series Transformers Prime is.This series is a vast improvement over the earlier animated series with better looking transformers,characters,and quality overall.The main character transformers are amazing looking whether in robot or vehicle modes.Optimus has a G1 touch along with a new millenium look all wrapped up into one for a cool appearence all around.Megatron is menacing as ever with one of the best looks he has ever had that blows his G1 appearence away.Starscream has a new,more sleek appearence that is very cool as well.Ratchet has one of his best character appearence's ever with his classic G1 colors and usual staight forward personality.Bumblebee is as cool as ever with a sweet looking sports car mode that blows the earlier animated version off the charts.My favorite would be Arcee,which looks the best she ever has in any transformer series.Arcee has great storylines involving her nemesis Blackarachnia.Arcee faces personal demons and has some heart felt momments along the way while kicking some major ass all around.The human characters of Raf,Miko,and Jack compliment the series very well while intrigating into the storylines just as well along with their autobot counterparts.Read more ›

To start off, I grew up watching the original Transformers. I have watched all the shows that came after. Robots in Disguise, Beast Wars, Beast Machines, Armada...I've seen them all. Through the good and bad. So one can say Transformers has a special place in my heart. Transformers:Prime is absolutley mind blowing. The story lines are amazing, character designs are spectacular, the music score is simply beautiful, and the voice talent is second to none. Peter Cullen returns as Optimus Prime with Frank Welker also returning as Megatron including a special guest appearance from Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson.

I don't believe in spoilers therefore you will get none from me. Transformers:Prime makes a for a great investment for children and adults alike. You will not be disappointed.

If you've got a bone to pick with Michael Bay and his live-action, senses-shattering (but not in the best way) TRANSFORMERS film franchise, then why not tune in to Hub's marvelous CG-animated TRANSFORMERS: PRIME? The first season is out on DVD. It's a better reimagining than Bay's own robots in disguise.

This incarnation plonks the Autobots in the desert outskirts of Jasper, Nevada, as they make do with a remote bunker as their base of operations. The series opens with the five-part "Darkness Rising" arc as our heroic 'bots deal with the Decepticons' reappearance after three years of hunkering down. A driven Megatron, returned from years spent in outer space, is obsessed with harvesting dark energon, that bent element which creates zombie Transformers (the 'con leader means to raise an army of these undead). Megatron's quest is a recurring sub-plot which pays off huge in the season finale. But to demonstrate that this series isn't messing about, an Autobot falls very early on.

Fans of the original animated series, as well as of the intervening iterations, will recognize the affectionate nods this show bestows. I don't know that TRANSFORMERS PRIME deepens the mythology as much as reshuffles it around some. But it does well in establishing the lore of this current continuity. The characters are well-defined; the cast is kept to a relatively small core number. The Autobot crew is composed of five robots, few enough that the writers are able to invest in solid character development. Each Autobot gets showcased. Heck, on the opposing side, even lesser 'cons like Knockout and Breakdown get their moment in the sun. Two memorable characters are introduced in the shapes of the sadistic Aerachnid (Gina Torres) and the snarky Decepticon medic (and drag race enthusiast) Knockout.

"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.

Quite a price hike for the Blu-ray :(
It's a prequel to Transformers Prime...haven't read it yet, but the price tag on the back is $9.95. So it doesn't quite justify the price tag, but the $40 sale price isn't too bad. There's 14 audio commentaries, which is a nice little bonus.

The kids
In prior incarnations of Transformer animated series, the kids are horribly voiced and tend to overshadow the transformers. Here they are support characters. Their personalities are much better too. I love Miko. They also are more useful in this series. As the season progresses they tend to take... Read More

The TF Miniseries?
Yes, it will. If you look at the image that Amazon has for the item it shows that the collection has 26 episodes. The mini series was the first 5 episodes and the actual first season was only 21 episodes.
