We all know about the Transformers, right? They are robotic-like beings that can transform into cars, planes, and other objects. But in a spin-off series called Transformers Beast Machines, Transformers can also go into beast mode and transform into animals. If your kids have not seen the series before, now’s your chance. Transformers Beast Machines: The Complete Series is available now on DVD.
As the title suggest, Transformers Beast Machines: The Complete Series includes all 26 episodes of the series. The box set includes four discs and has a run time of about 690 minutes (11.5 hours). In addition to the episodes, the DVD set also includes interviews and commentaries with series developer Marv Wolfman, story editor Robert N. Skir, voice director Susan Blu and voice actor David Kaye.
The Beast Machines animated series takes a little getting use to. The characters are different, yet similar. For instance, instead of Optimus Prime, the main character is Optimus Primal. He’s the leader of the Maximals and he has the ability to transform into a silverback gorilla.
Transformers Beast Machines: The Complete Series Synopsis
Transformers: Beast Wars may have come to an end, but the adventures of Optimus Primal and his team of Maximals have just begun! When the Maximals return to their home planet of Cybertron, they find that everything has changed. Cybertron seems to have been abandoned… that is, except for the Vehicon drones policing the planet! To make matters worse, the Maximals discover that they’ve been infected with a virus that threatens to wipe them out, unless they can adapt. Enter the world of the Beast Machines!
