Hardwired (Transformers, Book 1)
5.0 out of 5 stars Land of the Robots, June 8 2003
I've never even heard of a "Transformers: Generation 1" novelization before. But when I read this one's description, I started to like it. This book, "Hardwired," is written by Scott Ciencin. It was released early June 2003. Ciencin's next two "G1" books are sure to be a bomb for adult "Transformers" fans -- "Annhilation," slated for the fall of this year, and "Fusion," slated for a January 2004 release. All three novels are from I Books, and they involve an alien fleet arriving on Earth to take it over, and the "G1" Autobots and Decepticons will have to put aside their differences to save our planet, whether they like it or not. "Transformers" is a trademark of Hasbro, the American toy… Read more
Transformers: Season 2, Part 2 <b>DVD</b> ~ Michael Chain
Transformers: Season 2, Part 2 DVD ~ Michael Chain
Rhino Entertainment has done it again! The "Transformers: Season 2: Part 2" DVD box set is out now. The final 25 episodes in the second season of Sunbow-Marvel Productions' "Transformers: Generation 1" cartoon show are on each disc.

What's strange is that the Dinobots aren't even in this second half of the season, allowing the rest of the 1985 Transformers to have more screen attention. One of them, the Autobot Skids, is seen in only two episodes. That is downright wrong! He would've been given as much attention as… Read more
Original Transformers: Season 2, Part 1 <b>DVD</b> ~ Michael Chain
5.0 out of 5 stars Transform and Roll Out!, April 22 2003
My mom got me the "Transformers - Season 2: Part 1" DVD box for Christmas last year. The set contains the first 24 episodes of season 2 (each one has remastered video and audio). The first three discs contain seven episodes each, while the fourth disc has three episodes and special features. The strangest thing about the second season is that the second year characters appear on our home planet without any explanation. I blame the animators at Sunbow Productions for this indecency. Among the new batch of Transformers are:
New Autobot cars Smokescreen, Tracks, Hoist, Inferno, Red Alert, and Grapple
New Decepticon jets Dirge, Ramjet, and Thrust
Autobot scientist… Read more
