Need to catch up on the first two seasons of the CG animated series but don’t have a lot of time? Shout! Factory has got something for you.
The One Shall Stand DVD will take all of the Optimus Prime-centric stories from the first two seasons of Transformers Prime and stitch them together into a narrative showing the Autobot leader’s victories and defeats in the face of the the Decepticon threat as well as against the terrible Unicron. This is the kind of thing for those of you with only about two hours to spend to watch the series (although the full seasons are worth seeking out).
Here’s the official copy from Shout! Factory PR:
With UNICRON’s awakening, extreme measures needed to be taken. An unlikely alliance formed between AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS to defeat UNICRON, a foe who could spell the end of the Earth. The action unfolds as the AUTOBOTS battle alongside MEGATRON against the evil UNICRON. Enemies became allies, allies became confidantes, and with the Matrix of Leadership, the planet Earth was saved.
Though at immeasurable personal cost, when OPTIMUS surrendered the Matrix, he lost more than the collective wisdom of the PRIME. He lost himself. With the power of the Matrix no longer within him, it would stand to reason that OPTIMUS has reverted to his pre-PRIME state as the historical archivist ORION PAX. MEGATRON manipulates the impaired OPTIMUS into joining the DECEPTICONS. But does the OPTIMUS and AUTOBOTS’ true key to salvation lie in the trusted hands of a teenaged boy named Jack?
Shout! Factory has announced a suggested retail price of $14.97 for this July 31st release and promise an announcement with special features and the like in the near future.
