    It has begun again! Went to DDD.com for a crazy low price for this set. I'm finally getting the theme of the packaging from seeing this cover. Part 2 should be a fully together(transformed) autobot logo.[​IMG] Hopefully GI Joe wont be far behind with an announcement. The pic is from Amazon.com. Deep DiscountDVD has it for 29 dollars and change!

    I always like season 3 because it too place in outerspace rather than on earth. Cover art is cool too

    I was just curious if anyone could confirm that the transformers season 3 part 1 set is 3 or 4 discs?

    Thanks

    I don't know if it's old news or not, but there's a flyer in the box that says that the second half of season 3 will include season 4 in it. Just FYI.

    I have been laughing myself stupid at the old Transformers public service announcements. What a hoot. [​IMG]

    I've watched this set and have some observations.

    Unlike the previous sets, this set contains the original audio tracks for each episode! So each episode has three audio tracks: messed up 5.1, messed up 2.0, and "Original Broadcast Audio" 2.0. (By a "messed up" audio track, I mean that Rhino has added extra sound effects that aren't supposed to be there.) Be sure to select the original track before you start watching.

    Episodes 1,2, and 4 have the wrong opening credits sequence. These episodes should have the same opening sequence as episodes 3 and 5.

    The episode "Dark Awakening" contains narration at the end of the episode telling you to tune in tomorrow for the "Return of Optimus Prime", but that episode is not even on the DVD set! The original version of "Dark Awakening" did not have that narration at the end. (The version that Rhino used aired the day before "The Return of Optimus Prime", obviously.) Rhino should have had audio track without the narration, and another audio track with the narration. (And neither track should have extra sound effects.)

    The Public Service Announcements are great. But don't watch that documentary about the convention.

    Well i got all the transformers box sets and i am glad they included the original soundtrack finally after a lot of complaining about the first 3 box sets. I still do like the 5.1 remixes though when i watch in my main HT room great surround effects.

    Also, the episode order follows no logic I can determine. It's not in production order nor in aidate order. Anyone know where Rhino came up with their order?

    I hate the 5.1 mixes on these. Goofy-sounding stuff, like an overzealously-mixed Hong Kong bootleg.
