    The ones from Rhino were, if I'm remembering right, $35-40 bucks each and each season was split into various volumes that over time became impossible to find. You can still find these on amazon but be prepared to pay out the ass for some of them.

    So, wait, $35-40 for only part of a full season?! That's some ********. This new DVD is a great deal.

    I may be wrong but I'm pretty that it was 35-40 bucks each.

    And the TF fans that wouldn't fork up the cash for the previous release like myself. This is definitely a buy for me. Been really wanting to pick these up sense I picked up Beast Wars and Beast Machines.

    Here's hoping they do a GI Joe set to match with the release of that movie. :up:

    Are there any special features? This is a great price regardless...and yes a GI JOE set would be excellent.

    Yes you paid a lot for the Rino ones but the covers will silver and almost metal like thats where the extra money went.. I bet the new rereleases will be in just plastic crap... Not just that but they came with animated cells and cards...

    I already have all the previous G1 dvd releases so what extra features does this one have? Does it have commentaries? If it does, I'll consider an double dip.
