GeneralsJoes reviews Transformers: Prime Complete Season Two on Blu-Ray

Yes, it was G.I. Joe: Renegades that brought me to The Hub, but Transformers: Prime has kept me here with the absence of G.I. Joe animation.  Getting steadily better with each episode, we now have the second season of Transformers: Prime out on Blu-Ray!

Shout! Factory was kind enough to supply me with a review copy, and you can check out the review in my Miscellaneous section, or  via the direct link below.

GeneralsJoes reviews G.I. Joe: Renegades Complete First Season on Blu-Ray

Who cares about The Avengers?!?  G.I. Joe: Renegades the Complete First Season is hitting store shelves from Shout! Factory TODAY.

All 26 episodes of this landmark G.I. Joe animated series complete and in high definition…and it looks glorious.  With big thanks from Shout! Factory for providing a review sample, so I had a chance to dissect this thing before release, and now I’ve posted my review right here.

Official Press Release – G.I. Joe: Renegades Complete Season 1 on Blu-Ray

That headline makes me far happier than I care to admit.

After a pre-order showed up on Amazon, I think we all knew this was a done deal, but getting the official press release in my email box still put a big ass smile on my face.  Shout!  Factory is releasing the complete first season (and thus, the complete series) of G.I. Joe: Renegades on Blu-Ray!  Available for the first time (for most folks) in high definition, this collection gathers all 26 episodes of the landmark animated series, which was cut down far too soon.

Shout Factory salvages 2012 – G.I. Joe: Renegades gets full season Blu-Ray!

What’s the saying?  It’s always darkest before the dawn?  Well, just as all hope was lost with the G.I. Joe: Retaliation push back, Shout! Factory has single-handedly redeemed 2012 for G.I. Joe media, as an Amazon.com pre-order reveals a G.I. Joe: Renegades Complete Season One on BLU-RAY!

For many of us, this will be the first time ever seeing G.I. Joe: Renegades in high definition, and to say I’m excited for this release would be a massive understatement.

For folks who are into the regular DVD format, Amazon has also revealed a Season 1, Volume 2 set as well, to finish off the collection that was released just this week.  Both sets are slated for release September 25, 2012.

I was made aware of this by no less than 15 or 20 of my awesome GeneralsJoes faithful today, but first mention came from Twitziller, so full credit to him for making my day!

Thank you very much, Shout! for giving Joe fans something to look forward to this year!

G.I. Joe: Renegades DVD Season 1, Part 1 – Now with Box Art!

Minor update to yesterday’s story about the G.I. Joe: Renegades DVD, but the Amazon.com listing has now posted the box art to the upcoming Season 1, Part 1.  Very cool, evocative art that looks a lot like the figure packaging and featuring Duke, Cobra Commander, Snake Eyes, and Storm Shadow.

Check out the Amazon listing, the artwork below and thanks to Captain N for the info again!

G.I. Joe: Renegades finally hits DVD this June with Season One Volume One!

In an announcement that seems like has taken forever, an Amazon.com listing and TV Shows on DVD confirm that Shout! Factory will be releasing volume one of the first Season of G.I. Joe: Renegades on DVD June 5th!

While not quite the full season Blu-Ray set that many of us were hoping for (a la Transformers Prime) it’s certainly a step in the right direction, and hopefully a sign of more releases still to come.

As of yet there is no package art or episode details, but the Amazon listing mentions 286 minutes of footage, which breaks down to thirteen episodes.  Hopefully we’ll hear an even better announcement soon.  After watching Transformers: Prime episodes on Blu-Ray, I’m absolutely dying to see G.I. Joe: Renegades in a similar format.  But at this point I’ll take what I can get.

Thanks to Captain N for the information!

GeneralsJoes reviews Transformers: Prime Season 1 on Blu-Ray

No, it’s not a review of the as yet non-existent G.I. Joe: Renegades Season 1, which makes me a very sad panda.  But Transformers: Prime is a pretty darn good series in its own right, and seeing this action-packed animation in Blu-Ray quality is a sight to behold!

I had a chance to check this full season out extensively, and I can say it’s better than watching it the first time around, especially if you don’t have The Hub in HD (I don’t).
