5.0 out of 5 stars One for the G1 Fans!, 29 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Transformers: The Complete Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
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.
