The first two, Transformers: Generation 1 and Jem and the Holograms, are available now. Other shows, like G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Pound Puppies, and even My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic will be available later in the year. (Bronies rejoice!) All that nostalgia comes at a price, though. Individual episodes of the shows will cost $2.99 to buy or $0.99 to rent for 24 hours, and entire series can be purchased for $40. – Angela Watercutter, WIRED
