    Didn't already see this posted in the News and Rumors forum, so I hope this isn't old.

    Including the Dawns of Futures Past comic? Interesting...why the same release date as the season one set though? Not that I'm complaining.

    I also see on Brian Ward's Twitter that the BW voice actors "kindly turned [him] down" as far as getting them involved with any extras.

    Wow... It actually includes the prequel comic? That's cool...

    I already own the Rhino version, though.

    Not a bad price, either...I'm considering it. They did a decent job with the G1 set.

    What are the differences between this set and the Rhino sets?

    This is great news! I would rather drop 50 for the whole shebang than 20 dollars for each season *if that is what they would have ended up doing*

    If this set were to come with an exclusive figure it would sell like cakes so hot, you'd think they were cooked on the Devil's griddle.

    Done and done. Can we assume Amazon will get this and it's not a website exclusive?

    Awesome, this is a steal considering Season 1 is $30. Will this hit retail like at Best Buy (I found the Matrix set they did there several times so I feel there's a precedent) or will it only be on Shout's website?

    well i guess i'm canceling my season1 preorder at amazon, hopefully amazon will have it later too. they really should stick a 10 year anniversary dinobot with the set.

    Nice. Will probably be getting this instead of the separate season sets.

    Okay now this is a DVD set i would actually buy. Haven't seen Beast Wars in ages.

    The only reason i never bought G1 is because i can watch it on TV.

    Definitely buying this, as I wasn't around for the Rhino releases and I'd love to read that prequel comic. Price isn't too bad, either, at roughly a dollar per episode.
