No clue about this site, as I've never heard of it before. From the look of it, they are homemade disks. Case and whatnot looks decent though.
I'm pretty sure that's a homemade set. The blue background kinda gives it away (the real sets use the Detroit background).

Look they are going to be a season 3 of animated on DVD cause the 1st 2 sets are out on DVD. Why make 1 and 2 and not do a 3 on dvd dosent make any sense to me.

But I have seen sets done like that seasons 1 and 2 of SeaQuest were done but for some reason we are not getting a season 3 it dosent suprise me anyways cause it is owned bye Universal and they suck and making DVD sets and they are slower than crap about doing them also.

The only question is when will animated season 3 be released I say end of the year or 1st of 2010 sometime or another.

Also I hope they make an announcement at Comic-Con this year but I dont think they will, they probably wont make an announcemt until the end of the year or 1st of next year about the future of transformers and what they have planed in 2010.

I dont expect an announcement for sometime so it is going to remain quiet on the cartoon front of things for transformers.

But Revenge is all most upon us and plus the re-releases of Generation 1 throughout 2009 also and revenge the video game also plus revenge on DVD & Blue-Ray maybe bye the end of the year and then animated season 3 will also be on DVD sometime soon.

So it looks like the next of transformers cartoon will be in statis mode for about a year or so so another long waiting but that said there is plenty to keep us busy with the stuff i mentioned above.

We are just going to have to wait, watch, read and see what they have in store for us.

Of course. I never said that season 3 wouldn't get released on DVD. All I said was that the season 3 DVD set that Random showed us was homemade and unofficial.

How's that relevant? But I don't think we have to worry about that happening in this case.

We don't know. Just be patient.

Well, when is Comic-Con, anyway?

Rodimus2006 wrote:I dont expect an announcement for sometime so it is going to remain quiet on the cartoon front of things for transformers.
I'd say that we could expect to here something around either late Fall this year, Winter this year, or Spring 2010. But that's just my guess.

Get this, I went to Sam's Club yesterday, and they had the new G1 season 1 DVD set available! It was much smaller than the Rhino version and significantly cheaper! And yet, I didn't buy it, as I own the Rhino set. :|

I'm sue Animated will continue to play in reruns for quite a while. Remember how long TF: Cybertron played on CN when the first Bay movie came out?

So true...

...and obvious, which you seem to have a knack for stating. :wink:

Only reason I was think of re buying these DVD Sets cause I heard that they have cleaned them up considerably over the rhino sets.

Plus they are alot cheaper then when I 1st got my rhino sets also they are suppose to have some cool extras on them also and they are only 20 bucks or so and each set contains 3 disks.

The original Rhino Sets had 4 to 6 disks and also cool cool lithograph card type deal in it also plus the cases looked pretty cool compared to the ones being made bye Shout Factory.

Also I hope that Derrick Wyatt returns as Lead Art director for the next TF series he did a awesome job on animated also I enjoyed his work on Teen Titans but I heard he has other project in the works so he may not be back for the next new series.

Also I hope that get David Kaye and others from previous shows to voice OP and Megs if they are going to be in the next series wouldnt that be wierd a Transformers show were Megs & OP werent in it.

I think it would be cool to have OP and Megs team up cause they found out that there is a new faction on Cybertron pulling the strings and controlling the goverment.

This would mean that the autobots and decipticons would be under 1 banner facing this new Threat.

But as the show goes on Megatron goes back to his old ways and the alliance starts to crumble and once again the war goes on not unless OP can bring Megatron back to his senses someway.

I mean why does every TF have to have Megs and OP fighting I would like to see them team up for once I mean they are brothers just on opposing factions I mean it gets old watching the same factions fight.

I think it would be cool to throw something new into the mix for the next show.

Brothers? Only the ones from the Bay movies are brothers. No other Optimus Prime and Megatron are brothers.

And "brother" may not have meant a family tie. I mean, Obi-Wan referred to Anakin as his brother, Hulk Hogan calls people brother, and I'm pretty sure "Band of Brothers" isn't about a bunch of brothers.

It's irrelevant. Just because Transformers have siblings doesn't mean that can't still call each other "brother," much in the same way humans might call each other "brother" despite no relation.

Well, even though it hasn't been openly stated yet, what if the movie leaders DO have a relation?

Sorry I knew they are brothers in the Bay Movies but in the cartoons they are bitter enemies and complete opposites one good one evil and have know relation.

I know that saying Brother dosent mean you are really Brothers but is dose mean a tight emotional bond sort of like blood Brothers.

Like it was Between Anakin and Obi-One in Star Wars but I always thought there relationship was a father son type deal even Anakin said he thought of Obi one as a Father.

Obi-One said he was like his brother in Revenge of the Sith after the final duel on the Valcanoe Planet well it wasnt the last time that would be in Episode IV when he kills him as Vader on the Death Star.

Hulk Hogan just says Brother as his motto or catch phrase like Stone Cold always said What all the time.


Well anyways I just want something new and diffent for the next series something that hasnt been done yet also a new setting a new location and new characters never before seen.

Also would be cool would be a newer bad guy a meaner nastier Villian meaner than Megs or Unicron something totally new and totally diffrent but would be a welcomed addition to the transformers universe.

I have no clue what the next one will be about I just hope it will be have as good as animated was and has memorable characters that animated has in it.

Heck who knows maybe some of the animated characters might show up in the new show, I mean if it is still in the same universe that is.

But I have a feeling it will be new fresh and also possibly also a new art direction diffrent from that of animated was.

What the new look will be like or if it will remain done in animated style remains a mystery until it is shown and some announcents are made which will be quiet sometime like i said before.

So know we play the waiting game once more.

First, it's spelled Obi-Wan. Second, the planet they were on is called Mustafar. And for whatever reason, I can't stand people using generic terms for Star Wars.

I know the name of the planet is called Mustafar it is the Valconoe Planet were Anakin becomes Darth Vader will he takes his final steps as Anakin then becomes Darth Vader somewhere on Corscaunt.

Sorry I forgot the name of the planet it slipped my mind cause I havent watched star wars in a while that is also why I mis-spelled Obi Wan's name incorrectly excuse me I am not perfect like you seem to be.


Yes Sabreblade if they made him right and brought depth and choose a good voice actor for him he could be an excellent villian and give us a break from Megatron for awhile.

What we need to do is come up with ideas and submit them to the guys who make transformers so they can get the ball rolling on the next series.

I mean we all have ideas all they have to do is pay attention to the boards on here and see were to get ideas from but I sincerly doubt that the creators of transformers series ever pay attention to these message boards anyways.

Like game makers say they pay attention on the boards to get ideas from consumers if they did that then why do most of the games suck and never live up to the hype.

I mean some are really good cause they take there time and make a good game such as Bioware they are taken 2 or 3 years to make Mass Effect 2 cause it has been in devolopment since ME 1 came out in 2007.

Mass Effect 2 wont be out until March 2010 cause the 2nd DLC Episode isnt even out yet.

Sorry off topic: I know this is about transformers I was just trying to prove a point. That if the makers of Transformers would take their time this go around look around these boards and use fan ideas with their own ideas they can truly make the next show something special.

But I have a hunch that they are already on the works for the next series but it is just being keeped under lock and key for now until they are ready to make an official announcemt.

Like with Sony they said they never heard of the PSP-Go and it was just a rumor and bam right at E3 here it is also same with the upcoming Slim-Line Playstation 3.

Also they are dropping the Playstation 3 another 100 bucks in price but unkown when.

Anakin became Darth Vader on Coruscant well before he got immolated. After killing Mace Windu, Palaptine gave him the title of Darth Vader, then sent him to Mustafar.

I highly, highly doubt that we'll see an American made Transformers Cartoon without Optimus vs. Megatron. Having said that... it's possibly (in my mind) that they might do a cartoon showing leadership from Ultra Magnus or Rodimus and then switching back to or later to Optimus. Same with leadership under Galvatron (as a different character from Megatron). Just my 2 cents.


(Been a while since I checked this thread... and I come back to see that it's just Rodimus2006 writing his long multi one-sentence paragraph posts with the others replying to his small errors. Fun. I feel like I missed so much. :P :grin:

Hey... I kid because I care. ;;) )

Sorry I just get into the zone when I get into these forums I get carryied away.

Sorry for my enormus 1 sentenced paragraphs from now on I wil just type short ones.

Also animated is done over with it so it dosent make since for me to make long paragraphs about a dead series.

So from now on I wont talk about anything until something newer comes across that is news worthy.

Or if I come across something from research I do cause I like to keep tabs on things and I often Find things that arent posted up here on Seibertron.

If I ever come across something I will post up and I will try my best to provide proof to show what I find is real and legit.

But it dosent look like anything will be going on for the time being


Just Animated season 3 coming soon on dvd, Revenge coming out in a couple of days and the rest of Shout Factories Generation 1 re-releases throughout the rest of the year.

Season 2 is due out in September or in October.

Well I am taking a break for a while cause it looks like transformers is going to be in stasis mode for about a year or so until the next new animated series comes out.

i agree. whilst the cameos were great, they shouldn't force the same characters down our throats over and over. Every series will have an Optimus, and a kid friendly yellow guy, and a gruff technical/medic guy, and a big lovable stupid guy. its a working formula, fanboys need not tamper with powers they do not understand.

I'm not so sure I agree with that formula. Not every series has followed it. I mean, sure every (English/English dubbed) series did have an Optimus (Prime or Primal), but not every series had the other components.

RiD, Energon, and Cybertron all had kid-friendly blue guys, and the G1 movie had Hot Rod (who was red/orange). Beast Machines' tech guy was Rattrap, Beast Wars had Rhinox, Armada and Cybertron had Red Alert, and G1 had a bunch of tech guys, and none of them were gruff. And as far as I can tell, Bulkhead is probably the first "big lovable stupid guy" of any series.

And I'm not even gonna go into the Japanese-exclusive series, as their formulas were very different at times.

I'm not so sure I agree with that formula. Not every series has followed it. I mean, sure every (English/English dubbed) series did have an Optimus (Prime or Primal), but not every series had the other components.

RiD, Energon, and Cybertron all had kid-friendly blue guys, and the G1 movie had Hot Rod (who was red/orange). Beast Machines' tech guy was Rattrap, Beast Wars had Rhinox, Armada and Cybertron had Red Alert, and G1 had a bunch of tech guys, and none of them were gruff.

Bulkhead wasn't that that mentally dumb.

Besides, wouldn't G1 Dinobots = Animated Dinobots make more sense than G1 Dinobots = Bulkhead?

No cos the G1 Dinobots where seen more often and actually did something and where badass well till they made friends with Daniel and Wheely :sad:
I think TFA Dinobots + Bulkhead = G1 Dinobots.

Okay, just forget it. The point is that not every series follows the same formula with picking its characters.

G1 grimlock, post movie.

ANd the yellow guy thing holds true for most successful american series's. Atleast where I live, RID was almost unheard of. it was a fox weekday cartoon. the last one the had i believe.

I just said to drop it. Besides, the kid friendly bots in Energon and Cybertron were blue, and Hot Rod (the kid friendly star of the G1 movie) was red/orange.
