The menu is static, and it has the theme song playing in the background with a nice looking graphic of Optimus in flight mode.
There are no extras at all. Not even a sub menu with DVD credits. Just the main menu with each of the 5 episodes listed in order. Normally I would complain about the lack of extras, but the price is very low, and the video looks great...
The picture quality is A+ ...this DVD looks fantastic. Better than Ive ever seen the show on TV or VHS thats for sure. All in all its a terrific transfer!
Great job Anchor Bay, I hope you guys follow it up with more volumes and actually release the ENTIRE series of Beast Machines!
It's also interesting to see Optimus Primal changed so much from the great leader character he once was. After returning home and discovering that he is responisble for the death's of all life on Cybertron he is consumed by guilt and slowly starts to depend on the Oracle rather than himself. It makes for great story, and it seems realistic. He thought he won the Beast Wars, but Megatron killed everyone.. don't you think Optimus would change on the inside with all the guilt? Yes, he wouldn't be the same way he was in the Beast Wars, the events over the course of the show would've changed him (or anyone in his shoes). Some people are just dumb and like to complain about because they.. have no imaginations and can't accept change.
Note: Megatron does not wear a skirt! His wings cover over his body to form a cloak. And I have to say, I love the design for Megatron in Beast Machines. That cool helmet with the muzzle, the cloak, everything. He just looks so cool and menacing, and damn right evil.
This DVD rocked, I love teh new changes to the show, my only complaint about it was that there isn't a box set out yet............and when that day comes, i'll be one of the first people there to buy it. If you are a fan of Transformers and CGI then you shouldn't have any problems watching Beast Machines.

Okay so it's saving graces are...
1.Megatron still has his dragon mode under his skirt.
2.The flashbacks to Beast wars and happened to make this future are awsome.
3. Good music (But no electric guitar)
4. The last episode when Megatron's head is on Optimal Optimus's body!
And I'm pissed about what happened to Rhinox. It's wrong. I'm mad.
But I hope Mainframe makes a ne Trans show and fixes theis bad end note...return to earth!
