Hasbro Studios and Shout! Factory sent me the new Transformers Prime DVD for review. The title is new, but it’s actually a collection of episodes from the Transformers Prime TV series. My kids have seen the show before, but it’s nice to be have some of the episodes on DVD too. Transformers Prime: Ultimate Bumblebee will be available on DVD on Tuesday. It’s priced at only $9.99.
Transformers Prime: Ultimate Bumblebee is about 88 minutes long, so it won’t turn your kids in zombies. The DVD includes four episodes. As you can guess by its title, the stories feature Bumblebee. I think he’s my kids favorite transformer. The series feature the voices of Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Josh Keaton, Jeffrey Combs, Kevin Michael Richardson, Will Friedle, Sumalee Montano, Ernie Hudson, Markie Post and Steve Blum.
