This set is a must have for any Transformers fan! This set collects the entire Tranformers cartoon from the '80s (also called G1#.
Transformers features lots of fast-paced #and generally non-violent) action, there's more action in a half-hour Transformers episode than in most 60 minute live-action episodes. Lots of fast and furious action and some exciting duels between Optimus Prime and Megatron.
This is also a surprisingly well-written series. The plot for any given episode is well thought out and develops each character nicely. From high profile heroes like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, to giving the spotlight to some lesser known characters like Beachcomber and Trax.
The animation is quite good by 80's TV standards and even holds up today as quality animation. Shout Factory did a good job on the restoration of the series. There are a few places where you can see source material problems, but most of the show looks as crisp and clear as when it was first broadcast.
The extras trace the history of the Transformers from the action figures, to the Marvel comics to the TV series itself, including input from series writers, Bob Budiansky the writer of the Marvel comic and even some of the voice actors. Very informative!
For an action series the whole family can enjoy, look no further than Transformers! See it for the first time or rediscover why you loved this series so much.
Required viewing for any Transformers fan!
