The people over at Madman Entertainment have dropped by with some news on upcoming releases in DVD and digital format, for both the Transformers: Animated series and the Unicron Trilogy! Check out the press release below.

Following the revelation that ‘Transformers 4’ will be titled Transformers: Age of Extinction (and of course, that there will be Dinobots), Madman is proud to announce that a new collection of fan-favourite Transformers releases, consisting of the Transformers Animated series and the Transformers Unicron Trilogy, will begin hitting DVD shelves and digital platforms from November, 2013.

The first release on November 20 will be the complete first season of Transformers Animated, the 2007 marquee Cartoon Network series which was the basis for Hasbro’s toyline of the same year leading into the release of the first Transformers live action movie..

All Transformers Animated releases will be available in widescreen on DVD, as well as HD across digital platforms. Madman will also be exclusively releasing the third season of Transformers Animated, which has been previously unavailable anywhere else in the world.

Closely following in December, Madman will unleash the first stage of the Unicron Trilogy with the first season collection of Transformers Armada­, the 2002 series which featured staples Megatron, Optimus Prime and Starscream alongside fan-favourites such as Hot Shot and introduced the world to the ‘Mini-Cons’.

Consisting of Transformers: Armada, Transformers: Energon and Transformers: Cybertron – and named after the big bad villain featured across all three series – the Unicron Trilogy was a collaborative reboot of the Transformers universe, conceived out of America and animated and created in Japan by the likes of Studio Gonzo (Full Metal Panic, Hellsing), Actas Inc (Shin Megami Tensei Devil Children) and 3D graphics specialists, Studio A-CAT.

The series which followed Transformers: Beast Wars, the Unicron Trilogy features 3D computer generated robots and vehicles, along with epic anime-style story arcs.

Both Transformers Animated and the three seasons of the Transformers Unicron Trilogy have previously aired on Australian television on Cartoon Network and Channel 10.

Madman will continue to release further Transformers Animated and Transformers Unicron Trilogy season collections on DVD and digital platforms into 2014, with a new release assured for each month leading up to May – ahead of Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, which will hit cinemas in late June, 2014.

This fresh slate of fan-anticipated releases further cements Madman’s long standing reputation as experts on Transformers lore and will perfectly compliment their extensive catalogue, which includes Transformers Generation 1, Transformers Japan Generation 1 (Headmasters, Super God Masterforce and Victory) Transformers: Prime and Transformers: Beast Wars.

Aw. Animated was great. Really entertaining with lots of nods back to the G1 cartoon. The other three were certainly flawed, each in their own ways.

But all this said... where is the official news on release of Animated ON BLU-RAY either in the USA or UK. I don't want to buy it on any media until I find out definitively whether I will be able to get it in decent quality. :-?

If not, I might as well watch the crappy fuzzy torrent downloads available on the black market.

We've gotten a lot of figures the US hasn't so we really can't complain.

Yay Unicron Trilogy, but I'll give animated a miss never like that. (Animated fans don't get upset this is just personal taste not a dig at what others enjoy.)
