For the third time, RID is being released on DVD in the UK today, but unlike previous attempts in 2004/05 and 2007, this package is one complete set with all 39 episodes spread over 6 discs, titled Transformers: Robots In Disguise Ultimate Collection.

There are still no extra features, but 39 episodes for £11.99 is a bargin in anyone’s book (take note Paramount!). The cover is also a combination of last years covers, and is rated PG, not U has most covers indicate.

According to The Digital Bits, who are very reliable with anything to do with the home video format, Paramount will again be releasing Transformers on DVD and Blu-ray in 2009, to coincide with transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but this time in an extended format.

The most likely length of this new edition will be the Imax version of the film, which added a few needless scenes.

From Paramount, we’re hearing that a Transformers: Extended Edition is planned for DVD and Blu-ray release in 2009, likely timed to coincide with the theatrical release of Bay’s sequel film next summer.

Written by Big Bot on October 23, 2008 | Animated,DVD,News | Tags: ,

Good and bad news Aussie fans, Paramount are going to continue releasing Transformers: Animated on DVD in volumes in Australia, with Volumes 2 and 3 completing the first season. This is good for people who bought the first volume, but bad for most of who want full season sets.

Like the first volume (Blast from the Past), volume 2 will be subtitled Lost and Found”, whilst volume 3 is called “Megatron Rising”. It isn’t clear which volume will contain 4 or 5 episodes.

Transformers: Animated Volume 2 – Lost and Found (R4 Australia) – 29th December 2008
Transformers: Animated Volume 3 – Megatron Rising (R4 Australia) – 15th January 2009

Sorry, forgot to post this on Thursday! Aussie fans now have the chance to watch Michael Bay’s Transformers on Blu-ray, with the release of the Two Disc Special Edition last Thursday. The set is exactly the same as the North American and UK version released last month.

Also out today down under are the Transformers 1 disc editions with the Optimus Prime and Bumblebee masks, but we recommend you give them a miss unless you are a mask collector, or need something for a fancy dress costume.

More DVD News: Animated Season 2 in 2009

Paramount Home Entertainment seem on a role today, with another DVD box set on the way. Transformers: Animated Season Two has been announced to come out on 6th January 2009, containing all 13 episodes from the 2nd season and a basic array of extra features. Unfortunately, the episodes will only be in the full frame aspect ratio.

Transformers Energon The Ultimate Collection DVD Coming to North America

Paramount Home Entertainment have announced that Transformers Energon will be receiving the Ultimate Collection treatment with a DVD set containing all 52 episodes on 16th December in North America. Following on from the Cybertron Ultimate Collection, expect a bare bones release, with no extra features.

The news mentions that there will be 52 episodes running for 1092 minutes, or 21 minutes per episode. The only problem with this is that Transformers Energon only received 51 dubbed episodes, missing out Episode 33 – Scorponok’s Scars.

Transformers: Animated Vol 1 out in Australia

Written by Big Bot on September 4, 2008 | Animated,DVD,News,Paramount | Tags: ,

Today sees the release of Transformers: Animated Volume One – Blast from the Past, on DVD in Australia. Unlike North America, who last month got the complete first season on 2 discs, this is only a 1 disc set containing 4 episodes, Home is Where the Spark Is, Total Meltdown, Blast from the Past and The Thrill of the Hunt. These episodes are in fullscreen (4:3) with Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo and coded in region 4 PAL.

It seems Paramount Home Entertainment are mistreating international fans, with the same disc due to come out in the UK in October. It’s recommended that you avoid this and future Transformers: Animated releases until they are provided in their original widescreen format and come in full season sets.
