Transformers: The Complete Series – Matrix of Leadership Edition DVD Review

transformersmatrixdvdThe Digital Bits have, like lots of other fans in North America, got their hands on Shout! Factory’s Transformers: The Complete Series – 25th Anniversary Matrix of Leadership Edition DVD Set and have provided an in-depth review. It seems the set is well worth the $140 price and should be enjoyed by all.

Remember when all the major TV networks would run a preview night of their new Saturday morning line-up (with their biggest stars as hosts) the day before the premieres? In the early 80s, big new kids shows with toy tie-ins all took a similar route on syndicated UHF stations. G.I. Joe, Transformers, and many others had 2-hour prime-time premieres supported by heavy advertising campaigns. Saturday and weekday afternoon ‘toons were a really big deal back then – something that’s hard to replicate in today’s age of multiple 24-hour kids cable networks. Transformers was among the best of these shows, and it’s still highly watchable as an adult. I’ve been digging out my old toys, are they’re still just as cool as they were back then. If you’re a fan, this box set may be a little pricey, but it’s still definitely recommended. Enjoy, and roll out!

The set contains all 98 G1 episodes and a load of extra features spread over 16 discs, with some fancy packaging so that it looks good on you shelf.
