"The lure of the TRANSFORMERS saga starts a new chapter as all foes return, legendary heroes rise, and new ones are found in unlikely places. The new CGI animated series TRANSFORMERS PRIME, which currently airs on The Hub television network and is a Hasbro Studios production, deepens the epic mythology of both the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS, while starting fresh for a new generation of fans. Arch rivals the AUTOBOTS and the evil DECEPTICONS, lead by MEGATRON once again face-off in their rivalry for control of Earth in this new show. Celebrate the triumphant return of the AUTOBOTS through cutting-edge CGI animation with TRANSFORMERS PRIME - DARKNESS RISING. Early 2011, loyal TRANSFORMERS fans, as well as families and kids, were introduced to this visually stunning five-part miniseries on The Hub. OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, ARCEE, AUTOBOT RATCHET, BULKHEAD, and many others are back to "roll out" against MEGATRON's latest attempt to conquer Earth. And MEGATRON proves to be more powerful than ever, having acquired a rare element that allows him mastery over life itself. OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTBOTS may be few against the DECEPTICON hordes, but they find increased strength through bonds forged with three human teenagers, taking the human drama to levels as yet unseen by the franchise."

:shock: Wow! :APPLAUSE:

Even though it's mostly just stock footage and a reuse of the poster image we saw, the lighting and shading effects use in this image manage to look very impressive.

Should I buy this now or wait for the whole Season 1 to be released which may or may not include this 5-part series? :-?

Kinda reminds me of old Bionicle poster artwork, main characters and fan favs up front, more obscure chars (AKA The ones you love) in the back, and the bad guys looming WAY in the back.

Bland artwork. For a show as fantastic as this, it deserves better artwork.

Just the first five episodes on DVD in full screen? Screw that crap. I'll wait for the full season on Blu-ray in glorious high definition.

No Blu-ray= No sale.

I can download these for free in HD and would replace my tvr-rips in a heartbeat, but not for standard def.....


Totally agree. HD show with SD release = fail.
