    So I'm behind the times and didn't pick up season 2 on DVD.

    Anybody know where I can find it cheap? As in no more then 30$?

    Any rumors of Season 3 ever coming out?
    Any rumors of a full series set?

    The dvds are difficult to come by now as they have been discontinued.

    Season 3 is not coming anytime soon. In one of the Hasbro Q&A's Hasbro said no plans for season 3 on dvd.

    Amazon
    e-Bay
    Craigslist
    Your local used video store

    if all three of these make no sense, then there's always YouTube...


    ...or torrents...

    Just sayin'...

    I mean, if Hasbro/Cartoon Network/whoever won't give us what we want legitimately...

    And even then, prices are going up. I saw S1 go for $35 last night, and the Movie/S1/S2 used is going for around $100!

    I still find it hard to beleive that they keep dropping the ball on DVD sales.
    The G1 box sets sold like wild fire.

    I've wondered for years why they didn't import the japanese series.

    I also never picked up Region 1 Beast Wars season 1 or Beast Machines. And they are starting to sky rocket on amazon too.

    I'm not sure if this is an option where you're at or not, but I found this:

    Transformers Animated: Season Two (2 Disc) - Fullscreen - DVD.

    (If the link doesn't work, I just did a google search for "Transformers Animated season 2 dvd" and it popped up with the Best Buy site advertising it for $24.99. It looks like you have to have it delivered to a store, though.)

    Good luck--I hope you find it! I got mine on Amazon, before everything went all crazy and the series was discontinued.

    Check your local malls for a FYE store or a Suncoast.
    Sometimes they will still have these in stock.
    And yes, there are still a few suncoasts around.

    The link only lets you check store inventory. None to ship per se, as when you add to the cart and try to choose "Ship" it reverts back to Pick Up

    Sorry! I didn't check out the whole deal. I just saw that it let you add it to a cart--or at least it did for me. And then it gave the option of what store you would like to pick it up at. But unfortunately, beyond that, it said there wasn't any stores in the entire area that had any in stock. :( 

    At any rate, as a general rule, I think I'm just going to keep an eye out for extra copies at a reasonable price if I find any. It's pretty crappy they decided to stop making them while the demand is so high. Especially the lack of season 3. Pish.

    Yeah, I don't really want overseas releases. The suncoast thing is a good idea

    It's a shame that season 3 was never released! It was the best one!

    Oh well, I s'pose I could make my own Season 3 DVDs when I get my new laptop.

    Between this and the cancelled toys, Animated really got thrown under the bus, didn't it?

    Lord, but I would pay out the nose for a Thundercracker or Blackout. And a season 3 DVD set. Any TFWers get one off the truck in China and willing to part for a sum?
