Transformers: Beast Wars Season 1 DVD Review

I have to say that I was excited to get to review this. I mean it's TRANSFORMERS ya'll. Who wouldn't love this!?

The kids weren't a big fan. Well, Matthew liked it a little - he's just big on stuff like Mickey Mouse, Kai Lan...you get my point. Now can you guess who really liked it in my household? Come on take a guess. Yep, you're right...it was Robby. :) It doesn't matter how old they get - they will always go back to the cartoons that remind them of being a kid. :)


Brace yourself to relive some of the most epic TRANSFORMERS battles and non-stop action adventures through the 15th Anniversary release of BEAST WARS.  In 1996, TRANSFORMERS fans were introduced to this stunning saga between the heroic MAXIMALS and the evil PREDACONS wherethese powerful TRANSFORMERS disguised themselves as some of the fiercest and most ferocious animals on Earth. In a flash of an instant, these beasts turned into battle-tested robot warriors ready for combat. Created by Hasbro and produced by Mainframe Entertainment, the hugely successful animated series TRANSFORMERS: BEAST WARS ran for three successful television seasons and garnered an Emmy® Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation.
