    Episode #33 "SCORPONOK'S SCARS" is not included in this box set.

    I had heard back when the episode was suppose to air that this episode was not dubbed in english, but I was hoping that it would have somehow been included on the box set.

    Not really. Paramount would then need to negotiate to use the Japanese audio tracks. Plus, the Energon episodes were redubbed to go around the missing episode.

    bout the only way you can get a set of episodes with that missing episode included is to search youtube and purchase a unnoficial bootleg set from a fellow fan

    Well at least no damaged episodes like the Cybertron goof on Disk 1.

    Yeah, and the packaging does say "ultimate" collection, not a "complete" one.

    ...although "ultimate" still seems misleading if an episode was omitted.

    Seems like that would be kinda like playing "Ultimate Frisbee" with a piece of the Frisbee missing.

    Why would anyone want to watch Energon on DVD? I couldn't stand it on TV.

    Energon is an essential part of the Transformers storyline.

    Given the way Takara rebooted Galaxy Force as a new series (despite the pre-production work being a continuing series).... and then changed their minds 3 years later and made it a part of the Unicron Trilogy continuity again like Hasbro did with Cybertron, you can probably ignore Energon and get into Cybertron just fine.

    Yeah you pretty much can skip over Energon completely and go into Cybertron. Possibly the only eyebrow raiser would be "hey Starscream's alive?"

    And yeah the dubbing/subbing issues have been raised in regards to Scorponok's Scars, but there's probably subbed footage on youtube :]

    I like Energon. I got Scorponok's Scars in a Chinese release dvd so I'm set as far as that goes. I'll be getting the official dvd set soon
