Transformers Prime: Season 2 Review

I can’t say that I watched any of this DVD set but my hubby, that’s a different story. He is one of the biggest Transformer fans that I know so I proudly presented him with the opportunity to write his very first review!!

But first the bit he left out….Transformers Prime: Season 2 released on Blu-ray & DVD on November 27th.



I remember when I was a kid and coming home after school, all excited to watch the Transformers on television.  It was my favorite cartoon back then and it still is today.  I have watched every series of Transformers over the years, which is quite a few now.  A lot has changed over the years, but the one that remains the same is the ongoing conflict between the Autobots and the Decepticons.  Transformers: Prime really has what all transformers fans are looking for, everything from a good story with good moral ideas, to lots of robot action.  Of course it wouldn’t be Transformers without Optimus Prime and Megatron, and they are actually voiced by their original voice actors from the generation 1 series of the 80’s, Peter Cullen and Frank Welker.  The show also includes other classic G1 characters include Starscream, Soundwave, Bumblebee, Wheeljack, and Rachet.  Out of all the different series that have released of the years, I would have to say that Transformers: Prime is one of my favorites. So needless to say, being the Transformers geek I am, I was thrilled to get Transformers Prime: Season 2.

Season 2 starts off right where after the explosive first season leaves off, with Optimus Prime joining the Decepticons!  A real shocker right, I thought the same thing myself. I’m not going to spoil the season and tell you everything that happens, you’ll have to find that out for yourself, but this season includes everything from trying to save Optimus, the race between Autobots and Decepticons to find the cybertronian relics and the omega keys, a journey to Cybertron, to the loss of some characters and the introduction of some new ones. I’ll have say that this was definitely one awesome season. 

The Transformers: Prime Season 2 DVD collection comes with 4 discs that contain all 26 episodes, all in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.  This collection also includes "Brand-New interviews with the creative team" and "Optimus Prime: Up Close and Personal," an interview with Peter Cullen by Larry King, that was recorded at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con.

After this great season, I can’t wait for season 3 and what it brings, especially if what happening in the Transformers: Prime comics comes into play in the cartoon….hint, hint…Dinobots.  We’ll just have to wait and see.  But on an ending note, I will have to say that this is a great show for any Transformers fan, young or the young at heart.
