"Madman have put a lot of work into this set, in fact, the special features alone are almost too good to have on one set (over 3 hours of new content), and Season 2 is widely regarded as one of the best seasons of animation ever! This is where Transformers fans who don't know much about Beast Wars should definitely jump on board, because events in Beast Wars link directly into what happened to the Autobots and Decepticons before they woke up on earth!
Some buzz on those extra features:
+ Soul of Beast Wars - Story Editors Bob Forward and Larry DiTillio go in-depth with Ben Yee on all things Beast Wars. The writing process, the fans, the links to G1 and much more, includes background footage and images from relevant episodes - runs a full hour!
+ Audio Commentaries - 7 commentaries on key episodes chosen by the Story Editors, over 2 and a half hours of extra Beast Wars info
+ Early animation tests - Direct from Mainframe, early models and scenes, most never seen before!
+ David Kaye fan panel - the voice of Megatron at Transformerscon 2004
+ Garry Chalk fan panel - the voice of Optimus at Transformerscon 2005
With more including Toy Galleries, commercials, a booklet with episode summaries and a great article on Beast Wars from Mainframe fan consultant Ben Yee".
