    I already have the Energon and Cybertron series on DVD, so it'll be nice to finally have Armada to complete my Unicron Trilogy collection.

    Yes.

    This means that Shout! Factory has obtained the distribution rights to put Armada, Energon, Cybertron, and all 3 seasons of Animated on DVD.

    I'll gladly re-buy S1&2 of Animated if it means I also finally get a decent copy of S3. Here's to hoping we get a decent slice of DJW extras and a nice BluRay transfer.

    oh dang. i just drove all over Dallas a few weeks ago to pick up both parts of Armada at 2 different stores. $25 each. Part 1 was still sealed too. Not sure Shout Factory can beat that price but glad these shows are coming out. I need Animated so hopefully they'll do a box set and it'll be the widescreen version.
