TV Shows On DVD (http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Transformers-Complete-Series/11678) has posted an article today that reveals news from Home Media Magazine (http://www.homemediamagazine.com/tv-dvd/shout-factory-transforms-with-hasbro-deal-15326) that the complete series of Transformers Generation 1 will be released on DVD this year!

Shout! Factory’s first release under the agreement will be The Transformers: The Complete First Season — 25th Anniversary Edition. The set is slated for June 16 (prebook May 19), a week before the big-screen debut of the Michael Bay-directed feature film sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, due in theaters June 24.

The $29.99 three-DVD set will include the original broadcast versions of all 16 episodes from the 1984 season in the intended storyline order, with remastered picture and a new stereo soundtrack created from the original audio. The Rhino releases featured incomplete work prints of episodes and modified sound effects.

Tentative extras include the featurette “Triplechanger: From Toy to Comic to Screen: The Origins of the Transformers,” a printable script, rare PSAs, toy commercials and a limited-edition Autobot magnet.

Foos said Shout! Factory would follow the release with special complete-series sets of “The Transformers” and “G.I. Joe” later this summer.

The complete series sets will contain additional bonus content above and beyond the bonus content featured on the individual season sets.

I read (a while ago) that the dvd of G1 Transformers was all messed up and had a lot of animation errors. So I ended up just torrenting it :( The torrents were great :)

I never really liked seasons 3 and 4 after they kill off most of the main characters. It gets hard to remember the names when every episode brings in new main characters.

Yeah got them about a year ago but the transfer is awful so if they are indeed remastered i would be tempted to get them again!
