Old cartoon clips? Old commercials? A lame mockumentary?
Nailed it on the first guess. It's old clips of mostly Armada, Energon, and some Cybertron edited together to supposedly tell the story of the Transformers. Watched it once, wasn't terribly exciting.
Plus a photo archive of Classisc SS, OP, Megs, Aastro, Mirage, Grimmy, B Bee, and Rod.
Why exactly didn't they take it back to Gen-1 stuff, kinda where it all started? How can you skip over something like that on an "Ultimate Prime vs Megatron" dvd..?
It's crap, really. The title is a misnomer, since there is no way in hell that this is an Ultimate anything.
My only guess is that it was done with the kids who grew up solely on A/E/C continuity. Which still doesn't make sense, because I would think that Hasbro would want to introduce that generation to the stuff from the past to hook 'em onto all the other stuff coming out this year and next.
Or, more simply put - It's for the CLASSICS LINE, it should have something to do with the line that inspired it: G1.
Probably a legal issue. As I recall, Sony/BMG currently holds the license to the G1 series, as it owns the company that owns the rights to Sunbow's catalogue, I believe.
Hasbro can probably do whatever they like with Armada/Energon/Cybertron, as it appears those series rights belong to Hasbro and Takara themselves. So essentially, they could make the DVD really cheaply with the newer series, even if it doesn't make any sense in the context of the toy its packed with.
It's 22 minutes of crap.
I wasn't too impressed either. It was sort of like "Transformers for Dummys". They even rolled the credits for the entire 'trilogy'.
The credits was the best part!! The Classics pics were just Hasbro stock footage.
Well I'm sure glad I didn't open it then.
