DVD of the Day #362 - The Transformers: 25th Anniversary “Matrix of Leadership” Edition

Well, i finally managed to finish all 16 DVD’s of this series. This was my favourite cartoon as a kid. At one point I had one of the largest collections of TF’s in the US and I eventually sold them all before moving to England save for a few special items like Ultra Magnus, G1 Optimus prime, Predaking, Menasor and Bumblebee.

I have to say that not only has this series not aged very well, but Shout Factory did an awful job with the third season of the cartoon. Not only are the episodes out of both Chronological and broadcast order, but what is shown on the box and the booklets is still not the same order on the DVD’s. Very poorly done.

Season One is still sixteen or so episodes of awesome and it’s overall the best season. Season two is about 50 episodes and the range from the best in the entire series (like the hilarious Triple Takeover) or god fucking awful. This is especially true of the second half of the series that seems to only focus on the Stuntacons, Arielbots, Protectobots and Combaticons. Ugh. Season three is not only awful, it’s one of the worst seasons of any 1980’s cartoon out there. Horrible plots, horrible characters and a total lack of continuity. The only good things the post-movie episodes ever gave us were Ultra Magnus and Cyclonus. All three episodes of season four were…meh. The plot was awful and you can see why they ended it as the show just got awful, but the animation in these episodes is amongst the best of the entire series.

Overall, this hasn’t aged anywhere as well as G.I. Joe or He-Man and it makes me a little whistful. Sure I’ll probably keep this, but it’s more out of nostalgia than quality. G1’s still better than any of the later Transformers based cartoons at least.

Is it Worth Keeping? yes
Rating: 5.5/10
