Reviews

All 95 episodes from the four seasons of the classic animated series, one of the biggest phenomena of the 1980s. When the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons flee their ravaged planet Cybertron, they end up crashing on Earth millions of years in the past, where they hybernate until the present day. Before long, humanity is in the middle as the giant warring robots, who can disguise themselves as everyday vehicles, continue their battle for domination.

If you love the original classic 80's 'Transformers' then this box-set is definitely for you! This is the largest box-set of anything that I have ever purchased in my whole life and it was well and truly worth every single penny.

This 'Complete Generation One Collection' is true to it's word and contains EVERY SINGLE EPISODE from the original classic 'Transformers' TV series. It contains seasons one all the way up to four.

Once there was a terrible war going on between two races of Transformers, the Autobots and the Decepticons. One day, however, the spacecraft that they were all fighting on crash-landed into a prehistoric earth. In Season one (set in the year 1984, 4 million years later) we are 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 metallic 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. Not too long after being re-activated 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 of all, Optimus Prime, who proves to be very compassionate and considerate to all living creatures, including humans.

I used to love transformers when I was younger and watched it every saturday, collected the toys and audio tapes and couldn't have been happier. It has been a few years since then and I have been reminising about old series I used to watch. I did a search on amazon to see if this series was still available, and to my surprise I find that it is in a boxed set with all the series and the film!!! Before I knew what had happened I had put in my card details and it was ordered :) The set came five days after I ordered it, was in excellent condition and I feel it was very good value for money. I was then able to watch all the episodes, filling in the episodes I was never able to see on tv. As we all know, they did show this but it never seemed to be fully in order and I missed epidodes, so I was finally able to experience the whole storyline, and also, I can keep it and pass it onto my son. I feel a lot of cartoons atm are lacking values that were in the 80s cartoons, transformers, thundercats, etc....
For anyone retro like me, buy this series!! it is well worth the money or it makes a great present :)

I wasn't sure about getting this box set since even in the 80s, I found G1 to be dull. But then I guess that was because I wasn't trying to relax and cheer up at the time. These days I try as much as possible and I found this box set to be enjoyable.

The packaging style isn't great, but it's functional and that's better than nothing. There are extras which consist of interviews, animation blooper reels and more. Nothing special to be honest and a tad outdated by now, but still it's the thought that counts.
The episodes themselves have the original animation, flaws and all, and it makes the series so endearing. All the original themes are there, the original voices and the original characters. The 1986 movie added in is the US version, with improved sound and picture, but huge borders around the main picture all the way through the movie. But you can fairly see and hear the difference between a version released back in 2001, which I've also got and bought years ago.

This is a good cartoon to watch with your kids if you have parents, or by yourself if you fancy a little regression time. It's a classic 80s cartoon in every way, so much better than what passes for cartoons in this day and age. It's every episode, plus the remastered movie. In total you get 14 discs, which equals to 138 hours and 65 minutes, plus extras on the discs and outside of the discs in terms of a double sided poster showing the two seperate covers for Transformers the Movie and a few postcards plus small booklets. I was surprised to see all that, that's for sure.

So worth the money? Oh aye, well worth it. Perfect for kids and adults alike, so transform and roll out! Sorry, couldn't resist.
