    and thus the british fan mistreatment begins anew.

    I really can't see the logic behind that, and it's a ripoff price for 4 episodes too.

    Oh FFS, I am sick of being made to bend over for everything that's released in this piss poor country.

    I guess I'm not going to be buying the Dvds then.

    Well, I was gonna buy the boxset that had been promised. Now I'm not. Because - well - there isn't one now. Saw all the episodes on youtube anyway.

    Don't why Hasbro couldn't have just given all UK distribution rights to Metrodome. At least when they released DVDs to us they did it properly.

    No sale here either, Paramount. Reacquaint yourselves with the terms 'rip-off' and 'shelf-warmer'.

    All I say is that it's a good thing the PS3 is a divx player.

    Im not happy either. Not because of the lack of episodes on each dvd (even though i would prefer a box set) what im sick of myself is having to WAIT all the time. Every transformers animated figure i have, and i have most of them that have been released, (and even some that have'nt...got blitzwing a month or so ago) has been bought from america or e-bay. Every time i go into a toy shop here they're not there! Sort yourselves out, toy stores! although well done to toys r us for having a big selection, and argos for making a brave attempt, but its just not good enough. And now i have to wait till bloody halloween almost for the DVD series. Only thing stopping me from buying the american episodes is the fact that my little brother enjoys the series too and i want to be able to lend them to him, since he's mentally disabled and cant work a regular computer.

    Get yourself a region-free DVD player. Seriously, they're like £25 these days. Problem solved!

    And I echo all of the above. Screw my pre-order, I'll get the US stuff.

    At which point Hasbro look at lacking TF product sales in the UK and go 'Hmm... guess this stuff isn't as popular as we thought. Better cut back on UK releases next time...'

    Can't win, can we? Even when we vote with our wallets it backfires.

    Does anyone at Hasbro have any common sense, what a rip.

    I doubt Hasbro have anything to do with the dvd releases.

    well, Hasbro UK are now aware that there is a large fan base in the UK thanks to the movie line selling well and them sending someone to Auto assembly.

    recently things have gotten better but it is still something that needs working on. I hope next year the issue of DVD releases being unacceptable is raised.

    I would not mind so much if a box set was released alongside these individual releases so we can be assured we can get the series in one lump.
