Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars SO...REALLY...COOL!!! 25 Nov 2006
By M. Fox
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Retro Series 7 April 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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 :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Transformers - Fantastic box set 23 Dec 2007
Format:DVD
This DVD collection is great for a trip down memory lane it allows you to re-live all the great episodes of transformers generation one. The special features on the DVD's are also very interesting as you get interviews from some of the writers from the cartoon talking about the deadlines that had to be achieved in making these classic cartoons. This box set also includes the original 1986 transformers the movie a great buy for all true transformers fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars One for the G1 Fans! 29 July 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ah, what a misspent childhood I had.

The G1 cartoon is a wonderful piece of cheese, pops, bangs, lazer zaps and maniacal laughing marketed to kids, to sell merchandise promote a massive (and ever growing) range of toys. Each week an array of brightly coloured robots line up, beat each other up for a bit, foil each others plans, and find themselves back at square 0. Little progress is really made, barring occasional completely unexplained bases being built or warriors appearing.

But who is analysing this for its serious merits? I'm watching it to reminisce and stare in childish wonder.

As a true G1'er, I only wish that the TV Show shared some continuity with the Comic Books by Simon Furman (Marvel UK writer) who put out the best and the brightest plots and stories for the better part of a decade. Instead the show follows loosely the US story arc that isn't anywhere near as strong.

This is one for the fans.

Grumbles:
- Sound is occasionally uneven.
- Lots of packaging - although I like the visual impact of the whole collection.
- No attempt to re-master the broadcast material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, Transformers has been around for a while
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. Read more
