    As usual, Paramount release an incomplete DVD.

    Good News. That means all download links in the Animated Torrent and Showtimes thread will be removed for season one on August 18th.

    How so?
    The movie is seperate from the first season. Following the movie, Season 1 had 13 episodes and Season 2 had 13 episodes. Although there has been no word on Season 2, both the movie and Season 1 are getting their releases.

    Well at least they are smart about it. Bet you Season 1 will cost the same as the pilot, what a rip. 13 episodes for the same cost as 3.

    There are vital story elements in the movie special that should be in the first season. It's like taking MTMTE Parts 1-3 from the first G1 season. It should be released as a whole.

    The same can be said season to season though. No one just picking up the Season 2 DVD would have the vital story elements or character developments from the movie or Season 1. Someone picking up on the series from Episode 4 would be more likely to be able to follow it than someone picking up from Episode 17. Should Paramount just wait to release the series as a whole then?

    Regardless, Paramount is releasing what was deemed to be Season 1 in a box set. For those that feel that doesn't tell the whole story, they're releasing the premiere movie before that. Looks like Paramount is releasing everything, in order.

    That's taking it to a bit of an extreme. If I buy season 2, I know there was a first season, so will expect some parts of the story not to make complete sense. But if I buy season 1, I should be able to follow the story completely, not wonder how these robots got to Earth, how this girl got this key, what the Allspark is, why Megatron is just a head.

    I see why Paramount are doing it and have already spoken to their Home Entertainment department about it. They will make more money from 2 releases: 1 disc and 2 disc, instead of as complete 3 disc set.

    That's the way I'm seeing it too. The movie was seperate from the rest of the episodes. Talk about splitting hairs over nothing.

    If they added the movie into the box set it'd cost more.

    Watch episode four again. It's not like the show neglects to use exposition dialogue. Rant away if you think it's a financial ripoff, of ZOMG ten bucks or so, but not being able to follow the story is no excuse to need the movie.

    I'm just saying it would be nice to have it all together, especially considering the movie special costs RRP £12.99 (or $25) in the UK.

    OK, so using that logic, why isn't Transformers: The Movie on Rhino's G1 Season 3 Part 1 boxset?

    Sure, in a perfect world the TFA intro movie would be included in the S1 set, but as it stands, I'm just happy that the movie is being released as a movie rather than being broken up into 3 episodes syndication-style.

    I wish Rhino's G1 S1 set would have done that...

    Good news.

    So yeah I guess I'll be picking up the "movie" since it's not going to be on the season one set.

    I have no problem with that, seeing as "More Than Meets The Eye" was a seperate mini-series and all. Hell, it ends with them going back to Cybertron. Whatever happened to that? ;) 

    Back on topic, this is awesome news, though it means too much awesome stuff is coming out near my b-day, and I can't justifiy getting it all as a "present to myself." :(
