What country are you in? Those were the official releases made by Paramount in 2008. I bought both from Target back when they were for sale.

MUCH harder than you think.
For one, there do exist English dubs of these series, but they were dubbed in Malaysia and are beyond terrible, getting almost everyone's names wrong and using actors who had zero talent with little to no idea what they were doing with these series.
Giving them a proper dub wouldn't be feasible either because it would cost too much to do. It would be unprofitable. Not to mention how most would want the original voice cast to come back, when veteran voice actors are much more expensive than they were 20 years ago, which is why you don't see them doing much mainstream work anymore (no one can afford them).
Watching them in Japanese with English subs is the best way to see them.

Why should that matter? They don't have to watch them with you. You can watch them on your own. Besides, it's not like it's a bad thing to watch something in a foreign language. Don't tell me they're against anything that isn't in English.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
