    Did anyone pick this up today? If so, anyone want to give us a small review. I want to pick it up, but I have to wait until next week, so I was curious to see if it's worth the purchase (from someone who enjoyed the show too).

    Not me. Money's too tight to buy shows I didn't really get excited about the first time around.

    I guess the biggest question I have is.. is Episode one the original episode one "with David Kaye not voicing Megatron" or is Episode one that Hybrid episode that contains Episode 2 with flashbacks of 1. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

    There are better things to spend $40 on. Besides, I still have my Galaxy Force fansubs burned to dvd.

    I never really watched it on tv myself, but I did grab the pre-order from Amazon a while back. I'm not a real completist when it comes to the toys but the cartoons I kind of am, good or bad. Hopefully should have it in a few days.

    Ahh.... the exclusion of the CN logo alone makes me happy. :D 

    *L* There's actually a lot I like about this series. The positives outweigh the negatives in my opinion and it features several of my all-time favorite characters. I love this version of Starscream, I love Scourge, Thunderblast is positively ditzy and fun, Override I like, I like lots of the concepts and how they handled such a large cast. Even the kids aren't that annoying in this one. The only person I really wanted to kill was Jolt, but they made sure he suffered plenty later on in the series, so I'm good with that.

    It was a lot of fun, this series. Oh, and it has the best ending ever! An entire episode devoted to wrapping everything up. And the street-light transformer! How can you not love that guy? Easily the most fun I had during the Unicron trilogy (and the only series from that trilogy I intend to buy).

    Thanks, that's what I was looking for. I don't care. It's not Animated, it's not Beast Wars, but out of the trilogy, it's the only one that had at least SOME attention put into the dub.

    So my question is.. What is Episode 1 on the DVD?

    I'd pick it up if it was the Galaxy Force version.

    Arrived in the mail Tuesday from Amazon. More TF DVDs for my SO Freyabeads and me to watch. I never saw all the episodes. Cybertron gave us some great Transformers, so it's all just good times for us. :D

    Wow i don't get why it's that bad it had a lot of action and explosives?

    I'd buy it if it wasn't $60.00

    half.com has about 6 of these available for under $20 plus $3 shipping. They are exactly what the description says, a sealed official copy with a slit through the barcode. From what my library bud tells me they are free promotional copies, or meant to be returned to the vendor for credit. I've purchased at least a dozen movies in this condition, and done business with seller mcreed before. All the sellers have perfect feedback. Hell of a deal. Go for it. Link to list below.

    It's not. It's 40 bucks at Best Buy and Frys.

    I watched Galaxy Force as well, and honestly, unlike Armada and Energon, and with regards to the obvious name changes, the translation was almost exactly the same, if not better on the Dub, since it was not translated directly, rather adjusted to fit the different cultures. The only major differences I noticed was some bad music placement at the End of Cybertron and during the big finale in the race scene. Otherwise, I don't see the huge difference, aside from people just "always" looking better preferring the sub.
