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.
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).

This is just a reminder to let folks know that on March 6th, the complete first season of Transformers: Prime will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc! What does this mean for Joe fans? Well, perhaps if sales are brisk enough for Transformers: Prime that means something good down the pipe for a potential G.I. Joe: Renegades… maybe I’m reaching at straws, but I’ll take that chance.
I’ll be reviewing the Season boxed set closer to release, but until then, check out these great clips that have been posted online! I actually really enjoy Transformers: Prime, and hopefully some attention on this boxed set will motivate Shout! Factory and Hasbro to get something similar done for G.I. Joe: Renegades. We’ll see. Enjoy the clips below!

And hey, hopefully it will help expose more kids to the great universe of G.I. Joe: Renegades!
As we all know, Transformers: Prime returned to TV on February 11th, and while expectations were high for the return of the series, according to a Hub Press Release, Transformers went above and beyond those expectations, providing “massive time period increases versus prior four-week averages”.
Of course, with Renegades as a lead in, we had only great news for ratings for that show as well, which were “boosted significantly”. I know that there is sometimes some strange antagonistic relationship between Joe fans and Transformers fans, but if Transformers: Prime is going to help get more exposure for G.I. Joe: Renegades, I’m all for it.
