Figured this could use it's own thread since it's a new release.

Box art as well.

I never got the Rhino sets so I'm looking forward to picking this up.

Hasbro reaquires rights to Sunbow Properties including Transformers and G.I. Joe

See, it wasn't that difficult to use the search function.

Yes, but this is a thread just for the release, that's just mainly a news feed thread that I created, so I think it deserves it's own thread.

The box art isn't bad, but I prefer the shiny simplicity of the Rhino releases.

thanks for the info

I placed it in my Amazon shopping cart so I can see if the price changes from now until June 16th.

The question is what masters are they using? Correct me here if I am wrong, but weren't the Rhino ones riddled with mistakes that eventually got fixed?

I'm not too sure about many/any of the details yet, just what TVShowsondvd has...The Rhino sets had some audio and animation glitches from what I remember seeing or hearing on here.

Nice. I never got the Rhino sets either, so I'll definitely get on these.

I got the rhino releases. I will take a good long look at the featues on these, see if they might be worthwhile, although i am pretty happy with the current releases.

I actually have the old Rhino set. I wonder if the specs will be any different.

Well, if the episodes are intact and not spliced together or whatever was wrong with the Rhino sets, I think that warrants a double-dip.

I would just sell those sets now before the price plummets. I know when I was looking for them they were really expensive used.

Re: The Transformers - The Complete 1st Season: 25th Anniversary Edition 6/16/09

I assume since it's a 25th Anniversary edition, they have to do something different.

I only have season 1 as a Rhino set. The rest of the series I picked up overseas in Asia since they the Rhino sets are so damn expensive on Ebay.

If I recall correctly, there really isn't any good extras on the old Rhino sets.

Yeah, not too much although there were some cells or something like that, if I remember correctly. I don't remember being too dissappointed qualitywise with the set, of course it had been many years since I had seen the episodes so its possible that I do not remember things very clear.

I am so happy they are re-releasing them. The only Rhino set I am missing is the last one Season 3 Part II...so I am hoping they will eventually re-release that. I am thinking of selling all my Rhino sets, but will hold until they show specs of these. I am hoping they remaster them and make them look and sound really good compared to the Rhino versions. I also don't like the Rhino cardboard silver boxes. I prefer them in cool keep cases.

I might hold off on selling the Rhino sets until I get more info... Right now, tvshowsondvd.com is listing all the episodes on 2 discs. I'm guessing disc 3 must be reserved for the supplements... The Rhino sets spread the episodes over 3 discs with a 4th disc for the supplements. Whether the lower disc count would result in a drop in quality, I don't know.

I have the five original Rhino sets released, but I have a bad feeling the G1 TF nostalgist in me is going to force a double dip for the new extras.....

Wow, I hope that MSRP isn't a mistake because that is a great price for a three disc set.
