Transformers (Generation 1) DVD re-release!

Postby Shokara » Sun Jun 14, 2009 6:52 pm

In case you've all been living under a rock, Paramount and Michael Bay will be rolling out Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in movie theaters on June 24th. Riding on the hype for the upcoming sequel, TV nostalgia specialist group Shout! Factory is bringing the original Transformers cartoon series back on DVD starting this upcoming Tuesday the 16th. Although originally released on DVD in North America by Rhino, Rhino's DVD sets have been out of print for years due to their loss of rights to the show. On top of that, due to using pre-broadcast workprint film materials, Rhino's release contained many animation errors. They also added numerous new sound effects not present in the original version. Shout! Factory has gone back and restored the series' animation and audio to its original broadcast version. Season 1 will be available Tuesday, June 16th, with the rest of the season sets to follow later on along with a complete series box-set also to come. There's no retail release date yet for the complete series box, but you can pre-order it and have it received by July 13th directly from their website.

you can pre-order the complete series collector's set right now [as well as the GI Joe collector's set] through the second link you posted:

http://transformerscollectorsset.com/

Just click the pre-order button at the bottom of the page. Shout! went ahead and finished the DVDs for the entire series first, and are going to be selling them direct for awhile -- also anyone attending the San Diego Comic Con will be able to pick up the Collector's set.

I know you can. That's why I posted it. :wink:

I stated already that you can pre-order it and have it received at your home by July 13th.

I'll pass for now. I own the DVDs Rhino released a few years ago and am quite happy with those. If the Matrix Series set comes to stores, I'll be more than happy to pick it up, but being that it is online and SDCC only right now, I just do not see the value in it.

GI Joe, on the other hand, is a must, as I missed out on the Rhino sets, but again, the SDCC/online thing is getting in the way, as I want the complete set.

From TFW 2005:
Shout Factory Transformers Japanese Collection Released! Happy Holidays!
We've received a bit of Christmas news from Shout! Factory! They're sending out a special present to those who preordered the Transformers Japanese Collection - it's shipping out early, and some people are already receiving theirs! Originally scheduled to be released early next year, Shout! Factory has released the set early to those who preordered. This set includes Headmasters, Masterforce and Victory, three series that have never seen a US release until Shout! Factory brought them to the US. The set also includes a limited edition lithograph.

From SciFi Japan:
TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION on DVD January 10th

TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – HEADMASTERS Debuts on Region 1 DVD


From Shout! Factory!:
Transformers: The Japanese Collection with Bonus Lithograph!

Early happy New Year 2012! Fans and collectors can finally bring home TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION DVD box set from Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Hasbro. This is the rare Japanese trilogy that followed the popular "Generation 1" animated series. Available for the first time in North America, this 13-DVD box set is fully loaded with over 42 hours of entertainment, including all episodes that originally aired from the three Japanese series — Headmasters, Super-God Masterforce and Victory — each with their original Japanese audio tracks, English subtitles, and an art gallery. Pre-order begins now!

TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – Headmasters -- Optimus Prime lives again, the energy of the Matrix has been released and peace reigns on Cybertron . . . but all that is about to change with the startling arrival of the newest breed of TRANSFORMERS warriors.

TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – Super-God Masterforce -- Following their victory over the DESTRONS (a/k/a DECEPTICONS) at the end of Headmasters, the CYBERTRONS (AUTOBOTS) depart Earth, leaving behind only a small group to protect the planet from any future menace. But when the powerful DESTRONS return to an unsuspecting planet, the CYBERTRONS must come out of hiding to defend their human friends once again — only this time they’ll be unable to do it on their own!

TRANSFORMERS: THE JAPANESE COLLECTION – Victory -- Victory is the third and final installment of this Japanese trilogy— introduces four new factions to the TRANSFORMERS universe. Each group comes equipped with its own unique power and the ability to combine to form much larger, more powerful TRANSFORMERS, making each and every battle even more epic!

This.

I love it so much. Headmasters is pretty much utter garbage, but it's a better than G1 Season 4.

When I was a kid, the only episodes of Transformers I had were on a VHS that edited together the Desertion of the Dinobots two-parter. I finally got around to picking up the season 2 DVD set that includes that story, and I'd forgotten how bonkers this show was. Spike's brain gets swapped into a hulking robotic Frankenstein monster because apparently it's easier to perform an operation on someone if their mind is in another body. The autobots drive from America to Africa. Whole reams of autobots are roll-called at once so kids know what to ask their parents to buy. And, of course, any scene with Grimlock is pure gold. "Me Grimlock demonstrate finesse... whatever that is." It's glorious.
