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.

Note if you’re one of our contributing FanArtists and there’s a piece you specifically want included, let us know. We’ll be added a few pieces from our galleries, but we wouldn’t want to miss any out!

Lee Sullivan in talks with Metrodome

Written by admin on | DVD,Generation One,Metrodome,News |

Transformers comic artist Lee Sullivan is currently speaking to Metrodome about supplying artwork for their Season 2 DVD release. This could hopefully lead to a really great piece of artwork on the cover. We cross our fingers and pray for it in the forums.

Meanwhile it does look as though we’ll be getting two volumes for Season 2 as opposed to one big boxset as the financiers fainted at the cost. Still, it was worth a shot.

Appeal for Help – Scramble City

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on | DVD,Metrodome,News |

This is an appeal for help from anyone out there with the means to assist us. We’re looking for a copy of Scramble City – subtitled. We’ve got one that’s over 60 meg in size and would do, but we’d prefer to have a larger, better quality version.

If you have a copy of Scramble City, either on VHS or in AVI format and it’s decent quality (for AVI – larger than 60 meg) then can you mail us and let us know?

By the way, it’s for the Season 2 part 2 DVD from Metrodome!
