Out today in stores is Transformers: Beast Wars Season 1, a four-DVD set collecting the first season of the 1996 animated series for $29.93 US.
Also available today, but only through the Shout! Factory store, is the eight-disc Complete Series set collecting all 52 episodes from all three seasons. Thanks to the generosity of the studio, I have THREE of these 15th Anniversary Complete Series sets to give away to readers. Here’s the official description:
In 1996, Transformers fans were introduced to this stunning saga between the heroic Maximals and the evil Predacons, where these powerful Transformers disguised themselves as some of the fiercest and most ferocious animals on Earth. In a flash of an instant, these beasts turned into battle-tested robot warriors ready for combat. Created by Hasbro and produced by Mainframe Entertainment, the hugely successful animated series Transformers: Beast Wars ran for three successful television seasons and garnered an Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation.
Jam packed with hours of entertaining content, this Complete Series Collector’s Edition contains the entire CG animated series of BEAST WARS and a bounty of stellar extras, including retrospective featurettes, a 12-page book, art galleries, plus a special collectible 24-page comic book Transformers Timelines “Dawn of the Future’s Past.” Originally published by Fun Publications for BotCon, the official Transformers convention, in 2006, the comic book is the official prequel story leading right up to the start of Beast Wars and offers valuable insight into all the events that led to Optimus Primal chasing after Megatron and Predacons!
Here’s a trailer for the first season set:
