Transformers for a new generation.


I might be a girl, but don't let that fool you, I've been a transformer nut since the very first episode. I had almost the entire collection (and still own a few of my original transformers) and remember the epic battles my my little ponies and transformers would fight out almost every night. Maybe they are responsible for my adult obsession with robots, who knows, but I've been itching to see them reappear and stick around for Connor's childhood too.

The new animated TV show on Cartoon Network may not be exactly like the original but its an updated version I think kids today will really connect with. Actually I had this overwhelming feeling like I had seen this before.. something about the series reminds me of the old Robotech series in the way its animated. I'm not sure what it is, but I can't shake the feeling.

Transformers Animated - Transform and Roll Out is the first animated feature from the TV show and its 68 minutes of transformer goodness. If you haven't seen the animated TV show its a great introduction as it covers the first episode and introduces you to the new transformers cast (though its basically the same guys from the classic version there have been some mild changes to their appearance and of course voices). I have to admit I squealed like a little girl when I heard Starscream, I hate to admit I was always been a huge fan of the Decepticons.. sorry Autobots lovers, Decepticons are just cooler. (even my computer sports a big Decepticon's logo.. because yeh they rock)

And now for the official press statement :

AN ALL-NEW ANIMATED SPECIAL FROM CARTOON NETWORK'S NEW HIT SERIES ARRIVES FOR THE FIRST TIME ON DVD

TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED: TRANSFORM & ROLL OUT

High-Octane Adventure Featuring Everyone's Favorite AUTOBOTS Debuts June 17, 2008 and Includes Two Bonus Animated Shorts
HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. – The legendary “ROBOTS IN DISGUISE” are back and better than ever in an all-new, super-charged adventure when TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED: Transform & Roll Out debuts on DVD June 17, 2008 from Paramount Home Entertainment. The TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED series, which airs on Cartoon Network and was developed jointly by Cartoon Network and Hasbro, Inc., has garnered out-of-this-world ratings, ranking as one of the highest rated programs in its time period on all of television among boys. Featuring the iconic AUTOBOTS and their heroic leader, OPTIMUS PRIME, the story takes place in Detroit in the 22nd century as Earth once again becomes the battleground and the evil DECEPTICONS descend on the planet in search of the powerful ALLSPARK. This new twist on a classic tale has all of the elements that TRANSFORMERS enthusiasts have come to love, making TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED: Transform & Roll Out a must-have for every fan’s DVD collection. Hasbro’s new line of action figures based on the animated series launches globally in June, coinciding with the DVD release, as well as a line of licensed merchandise from more than 85 companies in key categories such as publishing and apparel. In addition to the special, the DVD includes two bonus TRANSFORMERS animated shorts and will be available for the suggested retail price of $16.99 U.S./$19.99 Canada.

Synopsis:
In the 22nd century, Detroit is the hot spot for all manner of techno-geeks, industrialists and all things robotic. It’s where the future is, and where money is being made thanks to the city’s thriving robotics industry. Of course that means Detroit is also the hot-spot for all things criminal, evil and demon-like, which brings us to our story…

Fifty light years earlier, a young ragtag group of AUTOBOTS led by OPTIMUS PRIME are in a remote sector of CYBERTRON cleaning space bridges when they stumble upon the most important artifact in TRANSFORMERS history: the ALLSPARK! The DECEPTICONS who are only scary myths for many AUTOBOTS are in hot pursuit of the ALLSPARK; now this new band of AUTOBOTS must fight for their lives and the future of CYBERTRON. The AUTOBOTS are able to escape the DECEPTICONS and crash land on an unknown planet called Earth. They land in Lake Erie and remain in stasis for 50 years. During an emergency, OPTIMUS PRIME and his young team are awakened from stasis just in time to help the new “organic life forms” (humans). But in order to save the humans and fight off the evil villain they have to convert into their robot forms! In doing so, they save the day and become new celebrities and heroes destined to fight all evil on the planet Earth and beyond! Transformers! More than meets the eye!

DVD:
The TRANSFORMERS ANIMATED: Transform & Roll Out DVD is presented in full screen format with Dolby Digital English Stereo or Spanish Stereo. The DVD includes two TRANSFORMERS animated shorts.

My favorite Transformer is Bumblebee although Optimus Prime is a close second. I haven't seen the Transformers Animated series yet, but it looks really cool, I really like the look of the animation. When I went to Hasbro to check out some of the characters my son got really excited, so he must like the look too.

I have a pretty large Transformers collection. Some old ones and some spectacular new ones (my personal favorite is my Transformer Ultimate Bumblebee. It's AWESOME!) Me and my family really love Transformers.

I adore Bumblebee. I loved the movie with Bumblebee being a Camaro, one of my favorite cars too. One of my dreams is to own a '68 Camaro, yellow and black just like Bumblebee, and you can bet I will name that car "Bumblebee" after my fave transformer. Bumblebee is so lovable, that this DVD will be cool because Bumblebee is in it!! :-)

TRANSFORMERS! More than meets the eye!

oh man! This chick loves the Transformers, as well! I remember when the cartoon first premiered back in the day - my brother and I would rush home after school to make sure to watch the transformers (followed by a rousing episode of Thundercats)

I hate to be lame here, but Optimus Prime has always been my favorite. Oh, the yon days when I dreamed of being a big rig driver, and Optimus' patriotic paint job always rocked my spark plugs!

Missy said...

My first transformer was Megatron and still is my favorite. Both of his forms were fun to play with. Although, I remember him being the most difficult to transform.
I still remember the Omega supreme 3 my older sister and I got for Christmas one year. It was a big space station with rockets and tracks. It turned into a robot. I think that's when the Transformers started to get really cool. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

gkstratos said...

I love Optimus Prime, if nothing else because his name is so cool. I think the Transformers work with every generation because it's the classic good versus evil. I'm 35 and still love them. My son is 4 and he loves them, too.

I'd have to say the red Transformer is my favorite simply because he looks the coolest. I read the review and it looks like my two sons would love to watch this DVD. Watching the Transformers shape into superheroes is the best.

JenO said...

I was the only girl with two brothers, so you can bet I was playing with transformers, too! I don't remember their names, but there was one that had a fake tape deck on their chest and the "cassette" turned into a bird. I loved the little bird just because it was small! We have a new little baby and daddy LOVES cartoons, so this would be a great gift for him!

Heather said...

OPTIMUS PRIME has always been the coolest transformer :-)

My six year old son is a lover of all things Transformer so he enjoyed checking this one out with me. He has collected everything he can get his hands on from current movie stuff way back to the days of the Go-bots. We are autobot lovers (the good guys always have to beat the bad guys in our battles) and Optimus Prime is definitely our favorite. If we win you can contact us at
