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.

Wait, so you can either buy the ENTIRE series or Beast Wars or just Season 1? Will they release a Season 2 and 3 later on?

Why wouldn't they? They're doing the exact same tactic as they did with G1: release the first portion or so of the series to test the waters, release the complete series to reel in the customers, and them release the rest of the series individually to make it easier on those who prefer that method.

They'll be doing the same thing with the Takara G1 series by releasing The Headmasters first, then the complete set of all three, then Masterforce and Victory later.

I sure hope this set will work on UK players. I can't help but feel Beast Wars was the beginning of the revival for Transformers after G1, and I really liked Garry Chalk as Optimus.

Just saw tons of this set at Walmart in San Diego. For under $20.00. I'm not a beastwars fan, but for those of you that are, there out.

I was going through netflix earlier and noticed there was the first power rangers on there along with a few other shows that were on fox kids during the early 90's. It's a matter of time before beast wars is up. it was my favorite tf show out there
