When the descendants of the treacherous Decepticons, now known as Predacons, land on a mysterious planet in search of the powerful fuel Energon, it’s up to Optimus Primal and the heroic Maximals to stop them before they conquer the universe!

In 1996 Transformers fans were introduced to this stunning saga created by Hasbro and the studio behind the groundbreaking computer-generated animated series ReBoot. Beast Wars ran for three amazing seasons, won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation and introduced a new generation of fans to the astonishing world of The Transformers! Now you can see the first 26 incredible episodes of this breathtaking animated epic.

Put away the 80's synthesizer and pull out the 90's generic rock guitar! Created by the same company that created Reboot, this classic Computer Generated series is the follow up to the original Generation One Transformers. Beast Wars in America, Beasties in Canada (Canada has a rule that no show aimed at children can have war in the title). An enjoyable series that had previously been released in bare bones sets by Rhino (which I own and are now discontinued), it will now be rereleased by Shout! and they are currently working on creating some extras. While I will update this post when I know more I just wanted to express my excitement that Beast Wars will finally be getting the release it deserves!

First Season Episodes:

Beast Wars (1)
Beast Wars (2)
The Web
Equal Measures
Chain of Command
Power Surge
Fallen Comrades
Double Jeopardy
A Better Mousetrap
Gorilla Warfare
The Probe
Victory
Dark Designs
Double Dinobot
The Spark
The Trigger (1)
The Trigger (2)
Spider's Game
Call of the Wild
Dark Voyage
Possession
The Low Road
Law of the Jungle
Before the Storm
Other Voices (1)
Other Voices (2)

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.

Beast wars seasons 1-3 have been released before from Rhino and Madman. Both of those sets are great, but the Madman release has a better picture quality and loads of extras. It will be great to see how the transfer is on this set and if there are any extras. Well anyway, Beast Wars is the greatest cartoon show to ever come out. It has great writing and animation that a child can enjoy as well as an adult. I grew up with this series and even now, when I'm 24 years old, I still watch it and love it. The plot in season one is very episodic, so each episode is self contained, seasons two and three broaden the scope and interweave many different plots together over many episodes. I'm not saying I like one form of writing over the other though, as the writers are great and it doesn't really matter how they present their material. I don't know what else to say about this series, it's just amazingly well produced, written and voice acted. The amount of love I have for this series is enormous. :) Get the dvd set, you will not regret it.

I bought this DVD for my nephew for his birthday and he loved it. Transformers is his favorite thing in the world and this DVD includes 4 Discs with 600 minutes of run time. The stories told are different than we'd seen before, and the DVD set kept him interested and excited. Since he only watches a couple hours of TV a day it will take him a bit to finish the set, but he loves it and it was something different than he'd seen before. With 26 episodes of animated transformers that are new to him it's a great buy at the price Amazon has it listed for. They shipped it quickly, packaged it well, and the DVDS were all secured and unharmed when it arrived.

Beast Wars is one of my all time favorite transformers series. This is the first season (complete) on DVD and I was very excited when it came out. I have to say the price I bought it for was practically a steal, especially nowadays. If you like transformers, this DVD is a must. It really brings you back to the 90's

It's weird coming back to this so many years later. So many things are just like I remember them, but it's also a lot more of a kid's show than I remember it being (obviously, I wouldn't think of it is NOT a kid's show when I was a kid.) But the writing is top-notch, and deals with some heavy stuff throughout the series. Careful, though--Season One ends on a huge cliffhanger, so be prepared to have Seasons Two & Three ready to go.

Back in the day this was THE show since it was the only show besides Reboot (same animators) that was fully 3D. The writing and voice acting is exceptional. I really enjoy rewatching this show now that im almost 15 years older than when i first saw it when it originally aired. A definite buy.

I don't rightly recall this series, to be honest. Course, after watching it- I'm sure I would've remember something such as this. My main reason for purchasing it is the fact that I'd heard alot of favorable things about this series from diehard Transformers fans. I mean, if they liked it, it has to be good, right?

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).
