I bought this many years ago, and realized my mistake when I heard of this. I also bought this, not thinking that it would be included in this. Naturally, I was in no hurry whatsoever to get Darkness Rising... lol, suckers :lol:

In fact, considering that we're now seeing "Complete Series" sets of this, that, and the other thing, I may just hold off for a few more years until I can pick up every episode of Prime in a single box too.

Nuh uh. I haven't bought either but I still wanna get both. Darkness Rising was edited as a movie. I've already seen it in episode form, so now I wanna see how the movie version flows in comparison. As for it being included in this set, well, that's great too. Cuz then I get to own both versions. So, nyah. :P


Season 1 + computer + Adobe Premiere (or Avid, or Final Cut Pro, or whatever) = Darkness Rising movie.
I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.

No,thanks I ain't gonna sit their & spend a few hours enditting the 5 episodes that will come with season one in march 2012 into a movie. if I did this,then I'd have to spend money buying a blank DVD. Then,i'd need to use a program to print out a lebel on top of the dvd. no matter what I do it's gonna look & play like a bootleg. some of us like to have liscensed DVD's in their Collection. not fan copied inferior Bootleg DVD's.

No,thanks If I had to do all this above,i'd spend the extra $10 & buy the 5 part movie. at the very least I know it'll play like a liscensed version & the DVD will look liscensed on the top of the printed label

This ain't worth doing to save a meager $10 bucks. granted I could see it worth while if the dvd set cost over $100. even then I wouldn't bother. as having bootlegs isn't what I want in my collection.

I have pretty mixed feelings about the cover of this set. I really love how Megatron looks, but Prime's just so... insecure. Almost fearful. I'd kind of expect him to appear more bold than that.

I'd honestly like to pick up the Blu-ray version of this, but the price point... sheesh. Even at Amazon's $45, I'm afraid I might not be able to bring myself to pay that much. I suppose when you break it down episode by episode, it's not too much, but the difference between the DVD and Blu-ray are staggering for this.

Exactly what sabrblade said.

you expect me to do all this work (wich makes no sense to begin with because the liscensed december version cost a meager $10 bucks) & not have a physical DVD copy in my hand????????

Having this only on my computer is kinda lame-o. What If I wanted to watch this at my girl friends house or in the car when i'm driving those long distance rides. or take on the plane & watch. or anywhere in my house while lying down on the sofa with my girl friend eating snacks.

BACK TO MY PREVIOUS REPLY: This ain't worth doing,spending hours to re-edit the march 2012 season one 5 episodes into a movie is not worth it. because where only talking $10 dollars. no matter how great anyone's editting skills are, their still gonna look inferior to the liscensed version of the TF Prime movie that was released in december 2011. IT'S STILL GONNA LOOK KO & IT'S STILL GONNA BE A KNOCK OFF. Their is no way my printer programs could 100% match the label placed on the liscensed hasbro version that was released in december 2011.

some of us value our time & could be doing far better things than ripping off hasbro via a excessively low amount KO'd $10 DVD prime movie copy.

From my quick calculations doing a KO of this TF Prime movie using the march 2011 season one TF Prime would require the following.

(1) buying the TF Prime season one in march. then putting this into your computer & sitting their for hours using re-edit programs.
(2)using a blank DVD,That could cost anywhere from $2.00 to $.50 cents depending on how big the QUANTITY of blank DVD's you buy & where you buy it & what brand you buy.
(3)using one of your printer labels to place on the blank dvd to make it look somewhat professional. these labels could cost anywhere from a few dollars to a fe quarters depending on how big the quanity pack you bought.
(4)the cost of the average blank DVD cost $1.00,the cost of the average superior looking DVD Label cost $1.50. the cost of me using my printer inks on the high quality setting cost $1.00. so doing all this minus my time equals= $3.50. the liscensed december version cost $9.99. So,i'm only saving $6.50,no Thanks doing this ain't for me. i'd rather buy both the december TF Prime movie & the march TF Prime season one & save myself all these headaches of editting & printing out labels.
(5)The december tf prime movie cost only $10,so doing all this hard work for only $10 is for someone else who isn't myself.
If i'm gonna do this then the thing has to cost at least over $100 not just $10.

Incorrect. First of all, don't assume that licensed copies of anything will be competently made. ADV was probably the worst offender in all of history when it came to not knowing what the hell they were doing; their Andromeda DVDs mixed interlaced with progressive footage seemingly at random, and their first batch of Evangelion DVDs were made by literally running their VHS tapes through a capture card. Secondly, anyone who actually knows what the hell they're doing should be able to produce an MPEG video stream that is visually indistinguishable from a competently encoded DVD, and possibly much better-looking than a poorly encoded one if you know what filters and quantization matrices are.

You're not ripping them off if you buy the rights to watch Darkness Rising in your home. Buying Season 1 accomplishes that.

No, the editing process would take about 2 and a half minutes. The real time-consumers would be installing the requisite software, learning how to use it, ripping the DVDs, creating D2V project files, writing AVIsynth scripts...

Okay, yeah. Point conceded. To be fair, though, this is the same suite of tools that you'll need if you ever decide to make a music video or similar nonsense to put up on Youtube, so it's a solid investment.

You're not ripping them off if you buy the rights to watch Darkness Rising in your home. Buying Season 1 accomplishes that.

(1) buying the TF Prime season one in march. then putting this into your computer & sitting their for hours using re-edit programs.


No, the editing process would take about 2 and a half minutes. The real time-consumers would be installing the requisite software, learning how to use it, ripping the DVDs, creating D2V project files, writing AVIsynth scripts...

Okay, yeah. Point conceded. To be fair, though, this is the same suite of tools that you'll need if you ever decide to make a music video or similar nonsense to put up on Youtube, so it's a solid investment.

Tidalwavex wrote:(2)using a blank DVD,That could cost anywhere from $2.00 to $.50 cents depending on how big the QUANTITY of blank DVD's you buy & where you buy it & what brand you buy.


Or bum one from a friend who has them.

Tidalwavex wrote:(3)using one of your printer labels to place on the blank dvd to make it look somewhat professional.


Or use a sharpie. Whatever floats your boat, man.

Tidalwavex wrote:(5)The december tf prime movie cost only $10,so doing all this hard work for only $10 is for someone else who isn't myself.


Okay, I'll do it for free. Would you like the DVD sent to your personal address or to a PO Box?


just to reply by your reply by each paragraph:

1- Please don't insult all Transformers fans by saying they don't have girl friends nor wives & that's why they spend so much time on TF related message forums. nobody insulted you,don't take the lead & insult others un-provoked.

2- wrong,anytime you make a bootleg copy using a liscensed copy it's considered illegial. the only difference is as follows: (1) If you make a bootleg copy for yourself & have zero plans to make profit off it by selling it,then you can't get sued nor arrested. (2)if you make a certain high amount of bootlegs movies using liscensed dvd movies & sell them for profit,then you can get fined & maybe arrested.

3- so now you saying your edit skills & software are better than the liscensed companies edit skills & software? these companies take months,use the best software,the most highly trained people. they spend huge amounts because their perfectionist. their is no way anyone can compete with these companies.

4- it takes more than 3 minutes to edit & splice something togeter like the TF Prime Movie using the march 2012 season one first 5 episodes. the uploading & downloading takes a over a hour.

5-so if your only gonna spend 3 minutes,how can your version compare & be superior to the liscensed companies? the liscensed company version spent weeks/months to get it looking as top notch & professional as possible.

6- so now were taking a step back in perfection. by saying forget the printed out label to apply to the DVD & USE A SHARPIR MARKER INSTEAD.

7-No thanks,nobody gets my personal info. If i needed this & I don't,I'd spend the $10 & keep my personal info a secret.

8-I'm done debatting this. I'm don't even care about the december 2011 TF Prime movie formated version. I'm buying the march 2011 season one version instead.

I have some pretty good editing skills.. I could work for the show ;)

In all honesty, I don't think its as simple as cutting stuff up and such. They probably have a bunch of different channels that are isolated so that they can overlay it over where a break in the show would normally occur. Add having surround sound to it and it gets that much more complicated.
