Summary of "The Complete 3rd Season - Good Robot": The season 3 episodes were even better than season 2, and I enjoyed those ones more than season 1. I just checked an episode guide and I see that this is the last season the show was known as Beast Wars. The name changed to Beast Machines for season 4, and Beast Machines: Battle for the Spark for season 5. I guess I can look forward to another 2 sets for Beast action.
Last set I commented that I thought Rhino was running out of material for the sets, and it looks as though I were right. The Animatic is interesting, but not something I'm into, and the deleted scene is very short. What's in store for season four? I have no idea. (read entire review)
I thought the extras for this release were extremely weak. If you aren't interested in the various aspects of animation then there isn't much of interest for you here. I would have liked some more interviews Larry and Bob, or something else of substance. It'll be interesting to see what Rhino has lined up for the next release. (read entire review)
The Complete 1st Season - Go Maximals! (10/19/2003)
Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - Go Maximals!": While Beast Wars isn't as cool as the original series, it stands on its own in the Transformer universe. Mainframe is one of my favorite CGI companies, so I'm always happy to check out their work. The packaging is very cool, it's just too bad they couldn't have had more special features on the set.
