If you’re already a big fan of Transformers, you probably know that Shout! Factory is gearing up for a June 16, 2009 release of Transformers: 25th Anniversary Edition DVDs. The first DVD that’s being released features the complete first season of the original Transformers cartoon show, which aired on TV throughout the 1980s.

And it doesn’t end there. Shout! is also planning to release other seasons that followed the first season of the show. The complete second season of Transformers is due out on September 15, 2009. So there’s a bit of a wait to see what happens in the second season, but at least you can keep yourself occupied and entertained watching the first DVD in the 25th Anniversary set – Transformers: The Complete First Season.


Season 1

You’ve seen the movie – now find out where it all began! This 25th Anniversary DVD set includes the complete first season from the Generation One animated Transformers series. It’s packed with Generation One extras, including a whole new look at the Transformers, rare PSAs (public service announcements), original toy commercials and more.


When the story of the Transformers begins, the scene is set as 4 million years after sentient robots crash-land on an unfamiliar planet in the depths of outer space. These robots have the ability to disguise themselves as common, mechanical vehicles (cars, trucks, etc.). Now, the robots wake up to find themselves on present-day (well, mid-‘80s) Earth. Their mission is to find a new energy source for their home planet of Cybertron. The main hero – Optimus Prime – and his heroic team of Autobots also have to defend the human race against the evil Decepticons, who are led by their corrupt leader Megatron.


Bonus Features

Snag the DVD set and you'll also get the following cool bonus features:

  • Cartoons restored to the original broadcast versions with a new stereo soundtrack created from the original audio
  • Triplechanger: From Toy To Comic To Screen (find out all about the origins of the Transformers)
  • A printable Transport To Oblivion script
  • Rare PSAs (public service announcements)
  • Archival Hasbro toy commercial (so the experience is like watching the original show on TV, commercials and all)
  • Limited edition Autobot magnet

  • Rating: 4

    Check out the trailer for these great DVDs!
