"Transformers: Beast Wars" Collector's Edition Sweepstakes


Bringing Transformers into the modern world, Hasbro created a new take on their robotic minions with computer animation and an animal slant. They called it Beast Wars and kids ate it up. With 3 seasons and 20 hours worth of episodes, Beast Wars developed its own cult following even as the studio lost faith after the fist 26-episode season and cut the subsequent two down to 13. It wasn't completely unexpected though, given that CG cartoons are a lot more expensive to make and that the show was considerably darker than the original Transformers, due mostly to the fact that characters actually died on screen (or at all), unlike its series predecessor.

Transformers: Beast Wars: The Complete Series Collector's Edition arrived on DVD yesterday, and we've got two copies to giveaway to you, or robotic-lovin' readers. If you want to win, just keep reading.
