DVD BOX SET REVIEW:
Run, don’t walk to your favorite retailer now and get Shout! Factory’s latest release of Transformers: Beast Wars. We like the Complete Series Collectors’ Edition Box set that includes all fifty-two action packed episodes. It also comes with a FREE mini-comic courtesy of the official Transformers Collectors’ Club!
Transformers: Beast Wars was one of the very first CGI animated programs and I must say, it is VERY well written. The writers took the approach of telling a science fiction story, not the approach of writing a kid’s weekly cartoon based on Hasbro's best selling toy line.
Beast Wars is the story of two battling alien ships that crash on earth. They are opposing forces with the Maximal’s fighting for good and the Predacons for evil. When they crash, they find that there is too much Energon on this planet and they must find alternate indigenous life forms that they can transform into in order to not be destroyed by the powerful Energon. Just like in real life, too much of a good thing can be fatal! The story is an epic struggle of how each group tries to defend itself from the other and escape from the planet. You will laugh, cry and learn to love the Beast Wars characters. So get a BIG box of popcorn and watch all fifty-two episodes in a non-stop marathon! You will be glad you did!
If you can’t afford the entire boxed set, then start with the twenty-six Episode first season. Both are in stores now! The only thing that would have made these better is if they had come with digital copies.
