Now I kind of wish I would have waited on the boxed set ($150).
Separately: season 1 $20, season 2 pt1 $20, season 2 pt2 $20, season 3&4 $30 = total of about $90
Previously I figured season 3 would be split into two, bringing the total up to about $100ish.
Oh well. I'm happy with the box set plus I made back about $150 selling my Rhino sets when the Shout! DVDs were announced.

That's what I thought, too. But I was really hoping they wouldn't, considering they wanted to get the whole of the series out there in order to take advantage of the "25th Anniversary" gimmick they put on the packaging.

its sorta funny how it shows Rodimus opening the Matrix on the cover considering that he only opened it in the movie. Prime is the one who opens it during that little outbreak.
but now that all the covers are out, someone should put em all together because dont they all form one long image or something?

Great! Now I can watch wheelie and also see Grimlock stumbling and fumbling around like Jar Jar Binks.

I hope they include the Tommy/Optimus scenes from "Season 5" (if you can call it that) as bonus features.

This is an old thread, but I'm bumping with my two cents. Season 3 was really the highlight of G1 for me, and Rebirth was icing on the cake. My first exposure to Transformers was from the movie, so I'd always associated TF with space opera and the gritty sci-fi elements influenced by Star Wars (exploring backwater planets, fighting off alien beasts, etc.). By the time I'd gotten around to watching Seasons 1 & 2, I knew that I was going to get a lot of Earth time in the beginning, but I had no idea that it would take so long for them to start branching out into space. And in fact, looking back at Season 2, my favorite episodes are still the ones that take place on other planets or dimensions (and that always involve Cosmos, heh). But Season 3 just hit the sweet spot for me. "The Killing Jar" is Saturday morning cartoon perfection, pushed to its darkest, most violent extreme.
The only thing that always bothered me, though, was Scourge. He hardly ever spoke, and he seemed to be Cyclonus' meek underling, despite the fact that Unicron created them as equals. The entire season, he just cowered at Cyclonus' barking orders and took abuse from Galvatron whenever anything went wrong. I say good for him that he went power hungry in the end, lol.
