5.0 out of 5 stars "Me Grimlock here to save universe." 10 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
The original, and in many ways, the best of the Transformers TV and film series. This boxset contains the original three-part pilot More Than Meets The Eye as well as the remaining 13 episodes of the first season. This is the series which introduced the important concepts of the classic 'Generation 1' Transformers universe, as well as the debuts of many of its most memorable characters; The perpetually treacherous Starscream, The Insecticons, Jetfire/Skyfire the Decepticon turned Autobot, the Constructicons and their combined form Devastator, and, of course, the awesome Dinobots ("Me Grimlock kick butt").

Filled with great characters, amazing voice work (Welker, Cullen and Latta in particular stand out) and a clever mix of action and comic relief, these are certainly worth your time. If you're older like myself, you watched these as a child/teenager and will remember them fondly; if you've only previously seen the 2007 Animated series, or the Bay films, this is Genesis. Worth every penny/cent/whatever currency you use.

Buy it, or Megatron'll crush you with his bare hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Animated bliss... 11 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
Okay, so I'm 34 yet still into TRANSFORMERS, GI JOE, MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE and anything made by Gerry Anderson - You have a problem with that? Good, because I honestly don't see a time when I won't be a fan of all these gems - If people seem to think I should give up all the things I love just because I've reached a certain age then that's their problem, not mine (but I digress).
Now known as "Generation 1" because of all the subsequent incarnations, to me this will always just be "The Transformers". I vividly recall the day when I leapt for a blank video cassette to start recording the first 4-minute snippet of the first episode when it was screened by breakfast television's summer holiday host ROLAND RAT (remember him?). I was mesmerized from the start - Here were my favourite toys brought to life in thrilling adventures that were told in a superb way. Years later the series seems as fresh and thrilling as ever, even though the original toy line is long gone - Sort of puts paid to the "toy commercial" jibe so many people level at series like this, doesn't it? After all, if that were the case the series wouldn't be held in such high esteem by adults such as myself (believe me, there are LOTS of us about!) so long after it ended.
This set features 16 digitally remastered episodes; the entire first season. Over the course of the unforgettable opening three-parter we come to know and love the core of characters that defined a generation, and subsequent instalments introduce the sublime SKYFIRE, ravenous INSECTICONS and the gargantuan gestalt DEVASTATOR. If you haven't a clue what I'm talking about then you need to buy this set. Back in the 80's we found ourselves caring for these two-dimensional robots and there's no reason the same won't happen to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just how I remember it! 22 Oct 2004
By jonesy
Format:DVD
At last season 1 is finally released. The box sets have been released in reverse order! A cunning ploy to get you to buy them all if you purchased series 4 to start with! The tin is ideal, it fits all 4 series very well. There is even space to put your single disc 'Transformers The Movie'.
Re-live your youth, you know you want to, and what a theme tune!
Buy this now, retro cool at it's best!

By M. Fox
Format:DVD
Four million years ago on a planet called Cybertron, a terrible war broke out between two races of Transformers; the Autobots and the Decepticons. As the Autobots were badly losing energy, they decided to fly around space in their spacecraft (which I believe is called the Ark) to find planets that could provide them with new rich sources of energy. However, the Decepticons followed them and another battle broke out on board the Ark. Because they were all so busy fighting one another, nobody was flying the Ark and as a result, crash-landed into a prehistoric earth.

In this season one box-set (set in the year 1984, 4 million years later) we are properly introduced to the Autobots, such as Optimus Prime, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee, Jazz, Blaster, etc. Unfortunately, we are also introduced to the evil Decepticons, such as Starscream, Ravage the Decepticon black panther, Soundwave and their evil leader (I wish it was Starscream. He's always fighting for leadership in most of the episodes), Megatron.

They are not the only characters who have a part to play in this series. Not too long after being re-activated on earth (after spending the past 4 million years in stasis mode, due to the crash-landing on earth), the Autobots rescue the lives and befriend two humans who become the main human characters of the series, a young boy named Spike and his father, Sparkplug (funny names, I know. But don't blame me. Take it up with the writers, LOL!). As you progress through the series you learn that the Autobots are fighting the Decepticons not for fun, nor because they enjoy hurting and killing. Far from it! They fight for freedom and peace, led by the most legendary and heroic Autobot in history, Optimus Prime, who proves to be very compassionate and considerate to all living creatures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Autobots, Transform and roll out! 29 Aug 2007
Format:DVD
This is a must have for anyone who remembers this as a child or had the toys. Ignore comments about poor editing, scale, sound effects, and the robots abilitities. This a CARTOON about transforming robots, you cant get any more far fetched. The story is great and the characters are great. Embrace your inner 8-year old and watch it!
