    Ebay:

    Thanks for clarifying this to me, I am a G1 collector but paying 140.00 bucks now is definitely not in my budget so I will have to wait for the separate releases.

    The separate releases all together might end up costing just a smidge less than this set. Of course, we don't necessarily know if they are going to only release up to season 4, or even do separate releases for some seasons (like part 1 and part 2 etc). Or, what prices each of the remaining releases will see. So that's tough to calculate.

    I'd suggest springing the little extra cash for this set if you can save up for it. Maybe return that Season 1 set you got and get a little $$$ back to get started?

    got notification that my order shipped. Sweet!

    Now once I get my GI Joe order in, I'll take my Rhino sets of GI Joe and Transformers and sell them. May use the money to buy Energon, Cybertron, and Armada box sets depending on how much I get. Be nice to get a great deal of money for them..

    Judging from the assplotion of Rhino Set listings on Ebay....you might get at least a few bucks back for them. Maybe $100 all together? Seems their stock took a noise dive with the Shout! releases becoming available.

    Okay. Dumb question, but is the entire series box set ONLY available online from Shout Factory, or is it going to be seen at retail anytime after the single sets?

    I was planning to sell them at a FYE or used Book and music type store. FYE i can probably get more trade in and use it towards Armada/Energon box set...

    Sorry if this has been asked, but what disc is Dark Awakening on? It says 15 on my set, but it's not there. Call of the Primitives is on Disc 15, but the back of the package says Disc 14. I'm going to check Disc 14 soon, but I was wondering if anyone else has this issue.

    Well I just checked and the episodes seem to be all there, but the episode listings for Discs 12-15 are just incorrect on the packaging.

    This is what I was looking for as far as comparisons.

    Man it takes up about half of the space that Rhino's sets did! So nice to have that room now for Energon, Cybertron, and Armada box sets.. may go and trade it tomorrow. see if I can get Armada, Energon or Cybertron for it..

    Got mine today and I LOVE IT! :thumbs2: 

    I watched some of the special features disk and looked at the fan art gallery. Some awesome stuff and a lot of pics I recognized from peeps I know through the Mosaic Project or Deviantart. And I saw my Paper Prowl doll! SQUEEEE!!!:D 

    I need to find something to put these magnets on.
