    I see alot of dvd's around for the A/E/C trillogy in stores and froogle's listings and I want to get the A/E/C trillogy since I never saw it. Are there DVD box sets of the trillogy out there or are they only available as single DVD's with 4 episodes per DVD.

    Armada is available in two box sets. Energon and Cybertron were only available as single disc releases. Actually I'm pretty sure neither of them had the complete runs of the shows released. It's only a handful of episodes from each.

    Really, I wonder why S'pore got them and the western countries missed out.

    So I can get Armada and Cybertron in box sets but Energon I have to buy each DVD seperatly, OK thanks.

    I think because the single discs sold so poorly, they figured no one would buy box sets, and for the most part I would say they were right. All the grocery stores in my area have the Energon single discs on clearance for $4.99. They have been there for quite awhile now, even the movie did not help sell them. Hell, I didn't even watch the free DVD that came with a bunch of my Cybertron figures.

    I bought all the Armada DVD's, in all I think there is about thirteen of them. Basically when I watched it all the way through, I can see why people didn't like it. However there was less of the 'super-mode' and 'battle scene' in this one.

    I had huge trouble getting a hold of a couple of the volumes though, but it was worth it to get a copy of Cramp.

    I think that the single disks don't sell well because people wait for the boxed sets. If they release entire seasons at a time, people will buy them.

    Actually, going based on the responses on this board around the time there was discussion of whether or not we'd see Energon & Cybertron get boxsets (I believe it was around the release of either volume 1 of Armada or volume 2 of Armada's Boxsets) people were stating that they'd rather not pick up incomplete single DVDs (especially sense with Energon you'd get four episodes in a row and than skip two or three with the start of the next DVD) and would wait for the boxsets.

    A lot of people wanted boxsets, but none were ever released. Of course, that could very well be because no one bought them as they were waiting for a full release that would never happen.

    One thing I've noticed is that smaller fan-friendly DVD companies tend to steer clear of (or are simply unable to secure the rights for) lesser-known shows such as Energon and Cybertron. I'm surprised Kid Rhino bothered with Armada.

    As I recall Madman were unable to secure the Australian-New Zealand rights to Beast Machines after their fantastic Beast Wars releases, due to a much larger company securing an international release deal (the bare bones release with the Hitchhiker's Guide style cover).
