    I really don't get the logic behind this. Someone at Hasbro actually thought "maybe this badly received/reviewed movie will sell if we attach this even more badly received/reviewed animated short to it"?

    Astounding.

    Because while the vocal minority(sorry to burst your bubble but that's what we are) didn't like it, it was the most viewed series on Go90 and while that doesn't sound impressive enough to most because it's not widely known streaming app it was a highly viewed series and did a lot of downloads.

    Just because the fandom who complain about it constantly on message boards didn't like it, doesn't mean the series wasn't a success. It certain was to machinema, go90 and Hasbro because it brought a ton of traffic, views and downloads and lets grow up for a moment, they admited they saw the criticism and have worked to make titans return better. Will it? I don't know but we'll find out in 2 months.

    Technically this makes it the first and only way to actually own the series, and there hasn't been any word about releasing it by itself any time soon, meaning to people who want to collect all Transformers media available on disc this is kind of a big deal.

    It was only a success in that was the only way to view it. So yes it had a lot of views but pretty much all those views panned it.

    "Brilliant! Time for the cocaine!"

    I literally had the Target exclusive one in my basket before my dad convinced me to spend the extra money and just get the Ultra HD 4K.
    Better go thank him for helping me dodge that bullet! :lol

    I haven't watched the Combiner Wars series, so I ended up buying the Target version. I'm curious if it'll actually be as bad as some make it out to be. If it is that bad, then all I'm out is some time as it is an extra feature I'll never have to watch again.

    So...it's exclusively bad? Is that right on Target with what I'm reading?
    Or is this just another bad joke?

    Good thing we don't have Target here, then.

    Probably the first time that's a positive.
