My Thoughts:

My nephew and husband can't get enough of Transformers.  If they are not watching the hit action packed movies that always seem to be airing on television, or watching the DVDs we own, they are catching the hit animated series Transformers Prime, which airs on THE HUB TV Network. So, when I surprised them this past weekend with this upcoming February 25th release, they were ecstatic to say the least.  My nephew stopped building LEGOS with my husband to find a spot on the couch to watch this DVD, which contains 4 episodes featuring everyone's favorite autobot,  Bumblebee. 

While I am not a fan of the animated series, as my husband and nephew are, I do like the franchise movies, and find Bumblebee to be my favorite.  There is just something about this yellow autobot that makes you like him.  And, this upcoming DVD captures all of Bumblebee's greatest moments all on one DVD, from the hit animates series.  From start to finish, my husband and nephew were cheering on Bumblebee as they watched all 4 episodes in one sitting.  And, while we only had this DVD since Friday, they have watched it a few times so far. Just this AM, my nephew asked to watch it again.  I guess we have a winner with this upcoming DVD release.  Fans of the hit animated series on The HUB TV network will want to pick up this DVD to add to their growing Transformers collection.  You will find them watching this DVD over and over again, with it never getting boring. I know as my husband and nephew keep saying that they could watch this forever!
