4.0 out of 5 stars Great show, great value... naff extras 19 Nov 2003
Format:DVD
Well, it's been a long, hard, bitter year since Maverick Entertainment released their boxset of season one of the Transformers, and since then, the rights have changed hands to Metrodome. Blessedly, they have refrained from releasing individual volumes, and gone straight for releasing a box set containing twenty-four episodes from the 49-episode-strong season of the show.
While the second season of Transformers is certainly the most memorable in the minds of most fans, introducing a wealth of new characters, with lots of diverse stories, in terms of actual inter-episode continuity, cohesion and general storytelling, season two is the weakest Transformers season, strung out too long, with too many new toys to sell. It introduces many new concepts and explores Transformer history, but it would be season three that would take it and run with it.
Metrodome is connected with Kid Rhino, the company that is releasing Transformers on DVD in the US. Hence, while Maverick used their own animation, and purchased Rhino's 5.1 audio, Metrodome has access to Rhino's sharp, colourful remastered animation, and both their 5.1 and 2.0 audio tracks. And unlike the Rhino S1 set, these episodes do NOT have any added animation errors, so there's no problem there. You'll remember from the s1 boxset, however, that Rhino's 5.1 audio has added several original sounds to the show, blaring out loudly at you and generally feeling out of place. Well, while we had to put up with it on Maverick's set, on this set, you can turn on the 2.0 audio option, which doesn't have these sounds - except for on "Changing Gears," "City of Steel," "Attack of the Autobots" and "Traitor," where a technical error resulted in their application. Thankfully, these episodes are light on them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Me Grimlock like this DVD! 30 Oct 2003
Format:DVD
It's good to see The Transformers back on DVD. After a six month wait since the last release by Maverick, all you Transformers fans out there can have your fill of Autobot versus Decepticon action.
Since a new publisher has been given the rights to publish the episodes, I'm hoping they'll make a better job of it than Maverick. Not that they did a bad job... It's just that it could've been a whole lot better.
Anyway, this set features the first half of Season 2. Season 2 is the biggest series out of the four, as at the time the toys were at their best. And, Hasbro were preparing for the movie.
As far as picture and sound quality goes, you won't be dissapointed at all. They've re-mastered the episodes completely and they look great. (Not bad considering the master tapes have been left to rot in a basement somewhere since 1985.) The jumping or distortion that Maverick had on their copies is gone, thankfully, so we can watch the episodes without distraction.
The special features are pretty good. Artwork, episode scripts, and even a Season 2 quiz with a bonus if you get all the answers correct! Nice one. I'm hoping that this publisher dosen't just include random footage they have like Maverick did. Their Season 1 set was more like 'The Maverick Set' because it had excerpts from Seasons 3 and 4, and even the Japanese 'Takara' series. WHY???!!!
Overall, this is gonna rock, 'cos Season 2 introduced some of the best robots. For example Blitzwing, Astrotrain, and The Aerialbots to name but a few.
Well worth your cash if you're a Transformers fan. If you're not but you're looking for some great action animation, then you can't go far wrong. Trust me!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great vintage-style cartoon 4 Dec 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The original Transformers series from the eighties in itself is very great and entertaining.
The DVD release is very good, brilliant picture, crisp sound. The menues are well animated, with the original theme playing in the background.
For this a price a must-go for all Transformers fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent series 17 Nov 2003
Format:DVD
A good deal of us who bought the first series thought we were getting a lot for our proverbial dollar, but after buying this I can say we're getting even more. While this is not the full season it does include 24 episodes, none of which feel short like other shows (ie Simpsons) tend to. Each episode is presented in rich, well defined color, and features excellent sound. Additionally there is a 'Play All' option so that you can sit down and watch an entire disc without having to reach for the remote. All in all this is a great series to buy and own, more so if you already own the first series. If you're a TF fan who has been waiting for the DVD releases this is what you were waiting for, and it's certainly worth it. Highly, highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it's in two parts 30 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
Excellent re-release of this classic show.

The episodes themselves are cleaned up a bit. It's old stuff this, and it shows.

This season does indeed come in two separate volumes. You'll need the 2.2 release too if you're going for a complete collection.

This volume comes in your standard multidisk keepcase. The artwork is well designed, not a cheap rip from old vhs' or anything. The disks themselves are rather nicely done too.

Good buy, good price.
