    Undertaker, Can you tell us how the quality is on these? Is it worth the $140?

    So far, I've only watched Disc 16, the extras for Seasons 3 and 4.

    Included are:

    An 11-minute feature: The Autobots, The Decepticons, The Fans. Hasbro employees (Aaron Archer, Greg Lombardo, and company), writers, voice actors, etc. talk about the fans, their take on the fans, and the fans' contribution to the success and future of the brand. They talk about Botcon, and there are a few shots from Seibertron.com and TFW2005 to illustrate, partially, the following that exists.

    A 17-minute feature: Into the Creation Matrix - A Conversation with Bob Budiansky. He discusses his beginnings with the brand, how he came to be the one creating the characters (we get to see some of the original, handwritten bios), and his involvement with the comic book.

    From the Files of Teletraan-2 - those end of the show clips; we have clips about the Autobots, the Decepticons, the Predacons, Ultra Magnus, the Quintessons, Metroplex and Trypticon, and the cassettes.

    Commercials - Double Spy (which I forgot also introduces the clones); Fortress Maximus; Headmaster Decepticons; Sixshot. FYI, the kids' faces are blurred out.

    Public Service Announcements - Seaspray on life jackets; Powerglide on judging people

    under the label of Fan Materials:
    Fan Film (both with and without commentary) - done by Randall Ng and Dr. Smoov

    Fan Art Gallery - 4+ minutes of art submitted with each item being on screen for roughly 5 or 6 seconds.

    Concept Art Gallery (specifically focused on the newer characters for seasons 3 and 4)

    Printable Scripts from the last seasons (haven't looked to see which ones).


    Getting to Disc 11 (Season 2 extras; I haven't it fully yet, but here's a list from the DVD menu):

    The 30-minute feature The Combiner: Forming the Transformers Animated Series - primarily actors and writers (with a few comments from Hasbro people) discussing the G1 series (making the show in regards to writing, making the show in regards to voice recordings, etc.)

    The 34-minute feature The Headmasters: Voicing the Robots in Disguise (Jack Angel, Arthur Burghardt, Neil Ross, Gregg Berger, Frank Welker, Michael Bell, Dick Gautier, Corey Burton)

    The commercials on that one are for Omega Supreme, Perceptor & Blitzwing, Constructicons, Blaster and Soundwave

    Public Service Announcements - Tracks on stealing; Red Alert on using reflectors

    Concept Art Gallery (season 1 and 2 characters)

    Printable Scripts

    Did they correct the errors in Season 1 like they said they would after they released season 1?

    Are there additional errors in the remaining seasons that were never corrected?

    Which features are exclusive to the box? Do we know?

    Refresh my memory. Why are the kids blurred out on the commercials in this boxset?

    It's not just this boxed set that the kids faces wound up blurred in the commercial. They've been blurred on other releases of the commercials as well. Probably an issue with some deal and the marketing company they hired to make the commercials or something.

    Something about royalties. Apparently if you blur out their faces, you don't have to pay them again.

    Legal reasons, they would have to find them and get them to sign a waiver and possible pay them

    Awesome. That's how you save money in a tough economy.

    The economy has nothing to do with it, previous re-releases of those commercials from years ago have the faces blurred because of it.

    I don't have the Rhino sets, but I can give some indication of the size of the Shout set by comparing it to a regular DVD case.

    First attachment is the full Matrix box and a single DVD case. Display it this way if you have a ton of space.

    Second is the individual cases containing the DVDs without the Matrix box and a regular DVD case. You may want to file it this way in your collection and keep the Matrix box on a prominent place elsewhere. :)
