Written by Big Bot on June 2, 2009 | DVD,Generation One,Metrodome,News | Tags:

It seems Metrodome, despite being sold by previous license holder TV Loonland, stil has the rights to G1 in the UK, which means they plan on rereleasing their Generation One DVD boxsets.

The 98 episode series will again be split into the same four sets, Season One, Season Two Part One, Season Two Part Two and Seasons 3 & 4, with all the same bonus features, expect probably the comic and booklets. All four sets are due out on 15th June.

Unfortunately, this probably means we won’t be seeing Shout! Factory’s set for a while.
