Transformers Prime: One Shall Stand

Transformers Prime boasts an all-star voice cast, including Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Steve Blum, Jeffrey Combs, Ernie Hudson, Adam Baldwin, Gina Torres, John Noble, among other notables.  Transformers Prime  is produced by Hasbro Studios, with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Kline serving as executive producers. Kurtzman and Orci served as writers for the feature films  Transformers  and  Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen.

With  Unicron ’s awakening, extreme measures needed to be taken. An unlikely alliance formed between  Autobots  and  Decepticons  to defeat  Unicron , a foe who could spell the end of the Earth. The action unfolds as the Autobots battle alongside Megatron against the evil Unicron. Enemies became allies, allies became confidantes, and with the Matrix of Leadership, the planet Earth was saved.

Though at immeasurable personal cost, when Optimus surrendered the Matrix, he lost more than the collective wisdom of the PRIME. He lost himself. With the power of the Matrix no longer within him, it would stand to reason that Optimus has reverted to his pre-Prime state as the historical archivist Orion Pax. Megatron manipulates the impaired  Optimus into joining the Decepticons. But does the  Optimus and Autobots’ true key to salvation lie in the trusted hands of a teenaged boy named Jack?

My Take on the DVD
This DVD was full of amazing action and provides a thrill ride for anyone that is a fan of the Transformers (in any of the cartoons that have been out over the years). I know that as a person who grew up on the initial series back in the 1980's this was a great addition to the overall breadth and depth of the Transformers in general. With great writing, plot and artistry, this DVD was fun to watch from beginning to end. The only challenge with this set is that if you have already purchased Season One, you have four of the seven episodes already. The last three of the series are great to have, but it is important to know that this is the case. Overall though, if you love the Transformers and have never seen this series, strap yourself in and hold on for the ride!
