My Take on the DVD
Transformers was a series that I watched when I was a kid (circa-1980's) and this Beast Wars series was a great add on to the series that added much to the Transformer brand.

The series has great writing and the animation was was developed too. What was nice about this set was that all 26 episodes were provided to the viewer. With the fact that this series build off each episode, this was important!

The bonus feature on this were also fun. I particularly enjoyed the part about building a new breed of Transformers. It was interesting to watchand see how this all was conceptualized and developed!

If you are a transformers fan, you will love this series, trust me!
