That sure is some barren wasteland they're all standing on.

That cover looks so much better than the Predacons rising one and the first 3 episodes cover.
Not a bad cover.
I'll definitely be picking this up. Maybe then my computer's storage would go down.

TBH these covers suck. They scream kids show with their simple character shots on a simple background, like it's some 3D demo reel. Look at your video game covers, and some movie covers, which are so much more creative in trying to psych you out to watch the show. Maybe if they had some intense battle scene that is paused mid fight, or a ripped up looking cover with close ups of megatron, prime, and predaking just peeking through. Just a cover, but just my opinion.

OP with the Star Saber :O

Well it kinda is a kids show.

like it's some 3D demo reel. Look at your video game covers, and some movie covers, which are so much more creative in trying to psych you out to watch the show.

I for one play 30+ new games a year and have never been psyched for that game by the cover.

I feel that that would be too easy for them to do, I could go right now and get a screen shot of any episode, any scene in that episode assuming you could describe it correctly and I could post it here in 5 minutes or less. Anyway I honestly think this is the best cover they have come up with for Prime, much better then the Season 1 box art IMO.

A) This is a kids show, and B) name one Transformers cartoon DVD set cover that doesn't do the same thing (excluding those that just have the show title logo over a near-featureless background).

The audiences of movies, video games, and children's cartoons are not all completely mutually exclusive.

No shit it's a kid show (Sabrblade, you know I know that. Why would you suggest I didn't?) Doesn't mean it has to be dull as a stump.

Still Transformers, yet way more kickass, as there's a supposed action scene. Obviously I didn't want a simple screen shot of a battle scene taken right from the show, that would be stupid. I just said that its boring, and could be much more awesome with some creativity, rather than essentially taking the cg models, posing them in neutral poses, and putting them on a regular random background that doesn't even look to have any of the environments from the show visible in them.

Look at that, some actual art that isn't just a CG shot of the game.

Another great example. That's the end fight scene, but its framed to capture the excitement of watching it.
Obviously you don't get all psyched about something from the cover alone (or maybe at all), but it's definitely a sign of work and effort when I look through my collection of whatever, and see a nice preview of the action packed craziness (or at least some level of effort beyond what you get when you pop the disc in). Anyway, it barely matters at all, and is just my opinion. If it satisfies you, great.

That's still a bunch of generic action-posed marketing stills grouped together like all the Prime DVD covers are ()this one even has the art of the season 1 and season 2 volume 1 covers repeated in the background instead of using something more original and creative to fill out the background behind Soundwave/Ravage/Blaster).

Now that I can agree with. Not to mention the overall gloomy atmosphere evoked by this cover, which is similarly off-putting.

I find it funny that Optimus never once touched the Star Saber throughout the entirety of season 3, and yet the only official image of his new body shows him holding it :HEADHURTS:

Speaking of the Star Saber, I'm going to like break 2 BH Voyager Optimus' is he doesn't use it in Preds Rising.

Yeah, I'm not sure if Hasbro does this one purpose or not now, they also had that image around 'Rebellion' that showed BH Optimus with the Star Saber.
