TV Shows on DVD.com has reported that Sony has decided to close down its SonyWonder division. With this new development, it is very UNLIKELY that we will see the planned Sony version of the G1 DVD Boxsets. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com as more details about this story develop.

I have all the original Rhino's but my season 1 dvd box set is wore out and playing bad I was hoping for these but I knew it was to good to be true. When something is too good to be true it usually is, just like The Headmasters, RiD, Victory, Super God Master Force will never be seen on DVD cause of Legal Limbo. I knew something stupid would happen and these would never get done were lucky that we even got a remastered 1986 movie done and that was lucky.

If the live action movie is a hit, I'm sure somebody will want to get their hands on this and release it. Besides I'm sure it will be released down the line on blu ray or HD DVD. You will just have to wait longer.

"Headmasters, RiD, Victory, Super God Master Force will never be seen on DVD cause of Legal Limbo"

Er... at least three of those series are available on region-free DVD from Metrodome in the UK. I'm not sure if RiD is region-encoded, but it's out there. A couple of my friends have it, and I've got the first disk from the aborted "volumes" release. I thoroughly recommend Masterforce as well- I'd only ever watched it with the bad-but-funny Star dub, and the original soundtrack adds so much that the dub misses out. The Seacons make weird yet awesome noises.

Shame about the Sony bunch. They did a fantastic job on TF:TM.

If those boxed sets were reasonably priced, I would have bought some of them. At least Season 1, and maybe asked for Season 2 for Christmas/Birthday/etc. But for now, my torrented Rhino rips are good enough.

Maybe wait another five to ten years and the videos would be re-released once again? :???:

Maybe Paramount can pick it up?

On another note, "DVD's" is not possessive, so you don't need the apostrophe.

Transformers has embedded itself in the ranks of pop culture. Someone else will pick up the name.

Rhino just released all the US episodes, and they are still fairly easy to find, and you can get a poor dub copy of the Japanesse series fairly cheap on Ebay.

Outside of the Japanesse Beast Wars, RID, Energon and Cybertron, I have all each series (not counting the Robot Masters shorts, but YouTube can get you those) You can even get Zone and Scramble City on Ebay as well.

I'm with God Magnus, I would have liked to see the extras that they came up with. But otherwise, it's not like the episodes are hard to find. Hell get a DVD player that's PAL compatible, and you can get all 98 episodes in that nice collectors box for a fraction of the price that you'd be charged in US retail!

Best of luck to those who go hunting now!

Aw crap. I was hoping to get the rest of Season 2 and Season 3 without having to bid on eBay again :sad:
