Synopsis: Where it all began! This 25th anniversary DVD set includes the complete first season from the Generation One animated series. Packed with Generation One extras including a new look at the Transformers, rare PSAs, original toy commercials, and more.
Four million years after crash landing on an unfamiliar planet, sentient robots with the ability to disguise themselves as common vehicles awaken on present day Earth. Engaged in a crucial race to find a new energy source for their home planet of Cybertron, Optimus Prime and the heroic Autobots must defend the innocent people of Earth against their archnemeses, Megatron and the power-hungry Decepticons.
For 25 years the war between the peace loving Autobots and the villainous Decepticons has captivated children and adults alike, launching countless collectible toys, comic books, animated series and feature films beloved by loyal fans.

Review: The Transformers have been going strong in pop culture again, since the release of the first film by Michael Bay a few years back. This summer Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen hits theaters, so what better time to release the classic generation one animated show!
Shout! Factory has gone above and beyond for Transformers fans! I mean they went crazy. The packaging is dynamic and fitting a show as classic as this one. The extras, don't even get me started on those! The archival Hasbro toy commercials, while some of them are a bit fuzzy, are SO fun to re-live. The set also comes with a pack-in Autobot magnet.
This DVD set gave me the chance to introduce my kids to one of my favorite childhood shows and gave me the chance to enjoy this magical series yet again. The sound..fantastic..the picture...fantastic! This is an absolutely necessary addition to any animation collection.
Rating: a STRONG 5 out of 5!
