From the Back Cover

The Generation One saga of the Transformers comes to and end in this final DVD set. An unstable Galvatron leads the Decepticons while Rodmus Prime continues to struggle with his new position as commander of the Autobots. Observing from beyond Cybertron, the maniacal five-faced Quintessons plot scheme after scheme in order to kill or re-enslave the Transformers they created eons ago. And at the farthest edge of the galaxy lies a planet that will forever change the history of every Transformer in existence.

Witness the secret origin of Chaos Bringer, Unicron! Tremble before the madness of Galvatron! Catch the debut of the Technobots and their merge-form--Computron! And of course, thrill to the resurrection of Autobot legend Optimus Prime!

This action-packed boxed set features 17 classic episodes on three discs with your choice of an enhanced Dolby 5.1 Surround or the original stereo mix.

Hopefully, you see this before paying the rip-off prices that third party sellers are posting. Yes, this DVD set is out of print, BUT Sony WILL BE RELEASING THEM IN THE FUTURE. I asked Rhino Video what happened through their Q&A person, Dr. Rhino. Here is the response:

A message from the Rhino Video Deptartment:

Rhino's deal with Sunbow, the licensor of Transformers, GI Joe and Jem, has expired. Sony Music has acquired them and will reissue these titles at some point.

Dr. Rhino

So, if you can wait then you will save yourself at least 50 bucks. I can't believe these sellers are trying to sell the items for more than they are worth.

The overall image quality has definetly been improved: brighter colours and very sharp images. I have found no mistakes. If I find one, I'll post them here in this review.

They have learned!! At last an option for the "Original Broadcast Soundtrack". Everything is done good so far I can see, additional soundeffects only in the 5.1 and 2.0 mixes.
They really could have included so much more! What about the toy commecial spots? They are hardly to find and in bad shape if you find them. They really used up everything in the first boxset it seems! The interview with one of the writers is superb though!! Stick to the UK boxsets for additional extras.
- all new transfer from the original 35mm negative
- Dolby Digital 5.1 remix & Dolby Stereo & Original Broadcast Soundtrack
- 2 limited-edition cels of Transformers characters (limited?? just to the availability of this boxset LOL!)
Although episodes should be in correct airing order, there are some minor differences between this set and most internet site listings. It seems to be unsure what the correct airing order was at that time.
The only additional thing I can write about here is season 3 itself. It is still G1 and for fans a must-have! But there are so many errors in the scripts/voices/animation that most of the episodes are just bad. The second half of season 3 has definetly better episodes like "Dweller in the Depths", "Call of the Primitives" and "The Return of Optimus Prime". The animation quality has improved considerably in this era.
Disc 3 is dedicated to season 4 ("The Rebirth").

What can those of us who were very, very small children in the 80's (like me, I'm 20) who grew up with Transformers or who were just fans of the show possibly say in tribute to this series? It holds a special place in our hearts.
With this final DVD set, Rhino has given us another excellent package. As with previous DVD's in the set, the animated menu is superb with a 3-D model of a character (in this case, Rodimus Prime) performing some minor action. Although this menu is a little strange. Its like the animated menu from the Season 3 Part 1 set, but the Autobot headquarters is damaged and Rodimus is also heavily battle-damaged. A little odd, but still very cool. The special features are somewhat limited (the first DVD set was so jam-packed with them that they sort of got used up), limited mainly to an interesting interview with a series writer and original broadcast audio.
The episodes on this set are among the best of the series. The oft-maligned season 3 has some great stories to offer. Rodimus Prime continues to struggle with his inner angst regarding his burden of leadership, Galvatron slips further into madness, and of course it culminates with the return of the greatest Autobot of all, Optimus Prime. Season 4 gives birth to the Headmasters and Targetmasters while bringing a somewhat conclusive end to the series. The animation quality varies, as is typical of previous seasons.
The most interesting aspect of this DVD set is the inclusion of the 3 season 4 episodes (Rebirth parts 1-3) spliced together in a "movie" format. The Rebirth trilogy was released on video years ago in this fashion and was called a second Transformers movie (which it was not).

As a child and as an adult, I remember seeing both season 1 and season 2. To be perfectly honest, I, as well as many other transformers fans was alienated from the season 3 series, due to the killings and replacements of many autobots and decepticons, don't get me wrong, this whole new spaceage era in cybertron, despite how boring that may sound, wasn't bad at all, it was good, since if there's no change in a series, it will eventually get boring anyway. I missed starscream and his naive plots against megatron, ironhide, optimus, etc, but the birth of many new robots wasn't bad at all either. The season three series, unlike the former episodes, doesn't take place on earth, it's primarily based on the planet cybertron about 25 or so years in the future. At first, i thought that they ruined the series, but if you actually see them all, you'll love it like i did in the end. The animation did not have the good quality that season 1 and 2 had though. Another thing that really annoyed me was that galvatron(which was a morphed megatron) seemed strong and powerfull in the movie, just like his former self (megatron) was, but in the series, galvatron was like a spoiled, tempered, immature little brat that simply liked to shoot at his fellow decepticons. The excuse that was used in the series was that his brain was dammaged due to the battle suffered in the movie (completely ridiculous reason to give him an uncharismatic character). Also, Rodimus Prime, the replacement for Optimus prime was immature and is an obvious reason why fans wanted an episode in this season which consisted of optimus prime being revived. Well, beside this criticism, i recommend people to buy this as a good completion for the transformers collection, it's well worth it. Till all are one!
