Nice, very in line with the previous Cybertorn set. I wish they would re-release Armada in one box set instead of two.

But it's not in line with the Cybertron DVD set's art at all. The Cybertron set had CG renders of the Prime and Megatron models from the tv show. This is just the old Energon promotional art by Pat Lee.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, HASBRO. STOP USING PAT LEE'S ART! There is probably better existing Dreamwave art from far superior artists and hell, why not do new art with more skilled artists in your employ?

Heh, one letter less, and that's "Energon boxart reviled," which is about right.
MushroomPrime
Did Pat Lee draw that?

The Animated season 2 is even worse. They've basically pasted (and flipped) Prowl, Ratchet and Bumblebee from the Transform and Roll Out cover and Optimus from the Season One cover. Why do Hasbro bother with Paramount?

omg guys it's just box art lol!

i don't know about you, but i just keep my dvds... in a shelf, like a book! ! so you only see the side :3

box art doesn't matter to me

i mean i'd only be buying it, to watch the dvd lol!

But it's Energon. NOBODY likes that show. So the saving grace of this DVD set would be good box art, but it doesn't even have that.

Besides, box art is all that seperates the majority of TF DVD sets.

*slowly raises hand*

I....I like Energon

Yeah, a bit dissapointed in the choice of artwork, but I'll still consider getting this box.

I would soooo down for that.

Yeah, 'cause I got only the second box set of Armada, and it would be nice to watch it from beginning to end. Though Armada's not my fav TF series, but still...

I'll probably pick up Energon, just to say that I've watched it. Even though I've been hearing lots of negativity about that series, it probably wouldn't hurt to watch it every once in a while... don't want to wear out my good G1 and Animated DVDs now, do I?

I wounder if the missing ep 33 would be included??
Transbot90210
I never saw the whole series but the gap between my Armada set and Cybertron set was annoying. Good or bad Energon will be a welcomes piece to my TF collection. Now all we need is RID.

Thanx

Eh, not really a fan of the Energon series, I have to pass.
Foster
I'm getting it. It will replace the 16 VHS tapes I currently have this series on.

And isn't that Energon Prime's toy boxart? I think it's a perfectly reasonable option to go with. Prime combined with Wing Saber would have been the knees of the proverbial bees, though.
Prowl
I dunno. I have Every Transformers series on DVD. But how it pains me to do this.
Jason Blue Boost
Probably going to get this to complete my dvd collection. Only missing Beast Wars dvd's which I'll just borrow from a friend to watch.

better add me to that list because i loved watching the show if only because megatron/galvatron was such a badd-@$$ and also because the show brought back superion devastator and bruticus if only in a somewhat limited manner

i would highly doubt it grifter prime

the only way i managed to get my hands on a english dub of that episode dvd wise was because i went and bought a complete bootleg dvd set off a fellow fan a good 3 or 4 months back before hasbro announced it would finally release energon as a complete series on dvd

bootleg or not having watched the entire series on dvd i can honestly say the guy did a amazing high quality job at digitally preserving and transferring each episode to dvd

And one word less and it'd be "Energon reviled" and it'd still be true.

I found Superlink to be at least a little more watchable. Kicker wasn't a total dick either...just a bit of a dick.

I like the show... Artwork is not important.

Come on after they do an armada box, I want RID already >_<

Unless Disney has the rights to that from buying Saban.

They do. I suggest you buy the Ultimate Collection being released in the UK next month, containing all 39 episodes. you will need a region free player.

As with Cybertron, I didn't like the show, but I do love the idea of a complete series set.

Oh how I want a R.I.D complete series set in REGION 1 lol... oh and UN-EDITED.
Hikuro
Good luck on that one, though I would like a RID box set more than the Unicron triology crap. Although I am a bit surprised that they're doing a box set of energon.

It's funny to me, I don't think in any of these three shows, Armada, Energon and Cybertron they ever finished doing individual DVD volumes, they'd stop about maybe 5 or so volumes in.

Hmmm probably still pass on this though.

I have only watched G1 never got a chance to watch any of the others. What can I say, I was deprived as a child. When most of these came out I lived in the middle of nowhere and only got 3 channels on tv.

So I am definately going to get this to add to my colllection -- no matter how bad it maybe.
Wheeljack_Prime
Yeah, they didn't dub episode 33, so don't expect that one.
Takeshi357
To say nothing of not dubbing all the footage that was edited out in the first place.

Meh, I'd be happy with a subtitles-only release. I'd never watch the dub anyways.
Chris McFeely
The thing is, this runtime really suggests that all 52 episodes are present... 18 hours, 12 mins is 21mins x 52 episodes *exactly*. Whether or not its just a mistake, based on some gofer looking up how many episodes the series had and seeing 52 written online, or if "Scorponok's Scars" has actually found its way onto the set in some form, we'll have to wait and see...

What's the deal with that ep anyway?
Fit For natalie
They dropped it for some reason and rewrote dialogue that referenced events from it in later episodes.

About a year from now, it might be found in the disorganized Walmart clearance bin. The box art will make it easier to find. The art isn't a deal maker/breaker for me. I look forward to receiving it and watching the episodes I missed.
The Crazy Collector
I'll take a set.

Now just give me a R.I.D. boxset and I'll be happy. Come on Hasbro/Disney/Paramount/Saban/whoever! Give me my R.I.D.!

December 16 2008 will that include Australia as well?

Since we never got the Cybertron set, nah.
