For those that don’t want to splurge on the boxed set, like I did, today the first Season of the original Transformers was released. There are some great deals to be had for this first set. The retail price is $29.99, but most places you can pick it up for around $20. The best price I saw was in Target’s ad this week in which they have it advertised at $16.99. This is a great way to see how the Transformers began 25 years ago and an excellent price.
Here is the description pulled from Amazon.com’s page

For 25 years the war between the peace loving Autobots and the villainous Decepticons has captivated children and adults alike, launching countless collectible toys, comic books, animated series and feature films beloved by loyal fans.
