Madman Complete Beast Wars and G1 Japan Sets & TFTM on Blu-ray

Written by Big Bot on May 24, 2009 | DVD,Madman,News,Transformers The Movie (1986) | Tags: ,

Transformers The Movie Blu-ray (Madman)Madman Entertainment have updated their website with details on three new DVD sets coming next month.

The first 2 sets are simply repackages of DVD sets that have already been release. There is a complete Beast Wars set, containing all three seasons and the extras and a complete Transformers Japan Generation One Complete Collection, with all Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory and Zone episodes.

The final DVD is a Blu-ray version of Transformers The Movie. The set contains all the same features as Madman’s 2 disc DVD version from 2007, but has the movie in high definition. It’s expected that this is the same master as Metrodome’s Blu-ray version.

All three sets are out on 24th June in Australia.

Victory Boxset released in Australia
