5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye, Generation 1. 7 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There was never any doubt about it. The original Generation 1 Transformers cartoon was superb. Some of the stories were top notch and the fact that they were accompanied by very good animation made them even more enjoyable to watch, not just for kids, but for adults as well.
Each of the different seasons of the cartoon show looked into many things. Season 1 looked into how and why the Transformers left Cybertron and came to Earth as well as the Autobots' desire to save their adopted homeworld from the Decepticons' desire to conquer and their attempts to get back to their original homeworld. Season 2 looked into more of the same but also took a dive into how the Transformers received life, the details of how the war started on Cybertron, and the creation of the Special Teams as well as that of Optimus Prime.
So what do the final two seasons take a look at? Well, Season 3 follows on after the events of the movie. A lot is explained in the opening five part episode, Five Faces of Darkness, which is definitely one of the great highlights of the boxset. Here, we take a look at how Cybertron came to be along with the Transformers race and divulge into much greater details as to how the war started, how the distinction between Autobot and Deception was made and who the Quintessons were.
As well as learning about the fate of both the Autobots and the Decepticons in the aftermath of the movie, we also learn more about the Autobots who chose to flee from Cybertron (as mentioned in Season 2) and the creation of Unicron and some of the animal-based Transformers. We're also treated to guest reappearances from some of the core cast from the original seasons, as well as the appearances of new characters, such as Metroplex, Trypticon, Sky Lynx and the Predacons.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Galvatron, Rodimus Prime and the Quintessons 2 Jan 2005
By Mr. J. R. Coupland VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Maybe it's because of Simon Furman's greatest comic stories focussing on the characters, or just because they seemed futuristic and exciting, but I always favoured - a little - the post-movie Transformers over those from the first couple of years. As you can see by a quick look at the various Transformers fansites on the internet, this is a rather rare thing for a fan. For most people, Transformers means Optimus Prime versus Megatron, not Rodimus Prime versus Galvatron.
So, here we have the entireity of the cartoon series' post-movie run. First things first, this presents a vastly different origin for the robots than the comic strip and for a Furman fan such as myself, that presented here just doesn't work. However, if it's accepted that the cartoon continuity is as different from the comic continuity as Generation 1 is from the subsequest generations (in addition, the origins of the Headmasters and Targetmasters, which formed the entireity of the three part fourth season shown here, differs greatly from Marvel's take) this doesn't really matter and the viewer soon becomes swept up into the events.
As a cartoon, Transformers was excellent in differing ways to the comic. Bringing the robots to life on screen allows for some tales to work in ways they wouldn't in comics (a key example being 'The Big Broadcast of 2006' - absolutely atrocious in comic form, but it works just fine here) and, while the cartoons are undoubtedly less mature, less 'real' than the comic stories, taken on its own terms, these are great.
Following on from the excellent movie, however, things suffer a little. The animation is undoubtedly not as good, and the star voice cast of the film (ORSON WELLES!!!) is missed, no more so than with Galvatron. Leonard Nimoy's take was so perfect - maniacal evil personified - that any successor would find it impossible to match.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not all that bad!!! 10 Dec 2005
Format:DVD
Ok, i am old enough to remember transformers being shown on tv, and old enough to remember having my own bumble bee transformer. but what are all these reviews about??? rubbish animation? Hello, this aint your newly made cartoons with computer animation.. or even computer aided paint jobs! This is how they made cartoons back in the day! (I much prefer the older style of animation...)
And all the talk on all the transformers box sets saying about story lines being rubbish.... ITS A CARTOON!! it was made to sell toys and entertain us. Who cares if the story lines are excellent.. all we watched this for was to see some giant car or truck turn into a huge robot!
ok now that i have that out of my system.... Season 3 and 4 of transformers is nothing like seasons 1 and 2! its all change in the world of transformers, the feel of this box set is way different from the first 3 box sets. it just feels more upto date, more exciting and cleaner. As im sure you know these two seasons take up where the movie left off..... and for once a cartoon series remembered the film, it didn't try to change it the way they do now...(See any disney cartoon series.. they have nothing to do with the movie that spawned them!)
And despite all the other reviews, the animation on this box set is just as good as the others.... ok so it looks a bit poor compared to modern cartoons, but like i said this aint no modern toon! if you want a modern cartoon i suggest you buy transformers R.I.D... < Very good animation! But if you just want some cool 80's toons with pointless but entertaining storys then this is the set to buy.
But be warned, see the movie and refresh your memory before viewing... alot of stuff happens in the movie that i forgot about.
All in all a top notch box set, A top notch series, And a top notch buy!!! Well worth the 15 quid!!!

Good season but a mere glimmer compared to the previous seasons. It improved a bit towards the end but sadly it was to little too late and was cancelled. Read more
