    I got the detailed layout from Rhino of what would be on each disc in the Transformers Season 2, Part 1 box (as well as the 4 individual volumes sold separately):
    Disc 1 (7 Eps, 175 Minutes): Autobot Spike, Changing Gears, City of Steel, Attack of the Autobots, Traitor, The Immobilizer, Autobot Run
    Disc 2 (7 Eps, 175 Minutes): Atlantis Arise!, Day of the Machines (a.k.a. "Machine Rebellion"), Enter the Nightbird (a.k.a. "Enter the Ninja"), A Prime Problem, The Core, Insecticon Syndrome, Dinobot Island #1
    Disc 3 (6 Eps, 150 Minutes): Dinobot Island #2, Master Builders, Auto Berserk, Microbots, Megatron's Master Plan #1, Megatron's Master Plan #2
    Disc 4 (4 Eps, 100 Minutes; Supplements): Desertion of the Dinobots #1, Desertion of the Dinobots #2, Blaster Blues, A Decepticon Raider in King Arthur's Court.
    Supplements on Disc 4:
    * A taste of Botcon 2002, including interviews with Transformers creators, voice talent (Neil Kaplan and Michael McConnohie) and footage from the convention.
    * Animation mistakes with commentary by Transformers advisor.
    * Interview with Transformers scriptwriter Earl Kress.
    The supplement info is mostly the same as was previously relayed by Anthony Liz of in another thread (thanks!). The new info there is who the voice talent is: Neil Kaplan and Michael McConnohie.
    Now that's weird. Because, per the IMDB, Mike McConnohie was the Dubbing Director on G1 (the "creators" interview?) as well as the voice of both G1 characters "Cosmos", and "Tracks" as well. BUT, he was better known voice-wise for doing the roles of Ironhide and Hotshot on Transformers: Robots in Disguise.
    And Neil Kaplan was NEVER in G1. He was also in Transformers: Robots in Disguise, as Optimus Prime and as Ro-Tor. Actually, he was better known as Diabolico on Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, and had smaller roles in Lost Galaxy and Time Force as well. Oh, and he was in Digimon, too.
    So is the "voice talent" interviews going to be about RiD rather than G1? [​IMG] Because those are the only names in the info they put out!
    Final bit of weirdness: look at the episodes on Disc 2 and Disc 3. Terrible that they choose to put a disc break in the middle of a 2-parter like that. Wouldn't it have been better to make Disc 2 the 6-episode volume, and Disc 3 a 7-episode volume? That would keep the story of Dinobot Island together!! It will be less convenient this way for folks buying the volumes individually, and still not nifty for box set owners who just want to pop in a single volume for the kiddies. [​IMG]
