Transformers: Prime - Season One (Limited Edition) Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: For centuries across the universe, Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) and the Autobots have battled their greatest foes, Megatron (Frank Welker) and his army of Decepticons. But on Earth they face a new threat: discovery by the human race. By using their unique ability to disguise themselves as common Earth vehicles, the Autobots have managed to avoid detection and the risk of escalating their war to disastrous proportions. But now they require the assistance of three young human allies (Jack, Miko and Raf ) along with Special Agent Bill Fowler (Ernie Hudson, Ghostbusters) not only to help keep their secret but also to defeat the sinister Decepticons once and for all!

From Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the writing team behind the megablockbuster Transformers feature films, and executive producer Jeff Kline comes an all-new series of sophisticated adventures for the Autobots, Decepticons and their human allies that boasts stellar computer animation and an impressive voice cast including Adam Baldwin (Chuck), Clancy Brown (Lost), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Dwayne The Rock Johnson (G.I. JOE: Retaliation), John Noble (Fringe), Tony Todd (Final Destination) and Gina Torres (Firefly).

Also included in this limited-edition set: the 96-page Transformers: Prime prequel graphic novel by IDW Publishing!

Review: The Transformers are a fantastic example of why all of us 1980s "Toys 'R Us" kids never have to grow up!  They just keep bringin' 'em back for us!  This latest cartoon incarnation of the autobots and decepticons airs on the HUB network, so many may have not had the chance to see it.  This is a fantastic way to own the lastest and perhaps the greatest series in many years time.  It reunites voice talents from the G1 series, Peter Cullen and Frank Welker, which is a huge joy for nerds everywhere!  The animation in this new show is CGI, but its so fluid and so fantastic that you forget after awhile.  Its amazing how far its come since the 1990s Beast Wars series.  This blu-ray set includes the complete first season, plus a limited edition comic book from IDW.  This one is a MUST have for any Transformers fan..which is pretty much every boy that grew up in the 1980s and 1990s.  Also, this one will appeal to your kids, so its a great way to share something you grew up loving with them!
