"He's Got the Power of an Iron Fist... and the Courage to Master It!
One hundred years after The Robot Wars, a boy named Marty discovers the legendary Fist of Eon. When Marty tries the fist on for size, it gives him amazing fighting powers and Marty suddenly finds himself in the middle of a centuries-old battle between good and evil. Can the new heir of Eon - with the help of his robotic dog Buttons, mysterious friend Ally, mighty guardian Gaff and more - now escape the wrath of The General's dark forces and protect a legendary warrior's legacy? Eon Kid is packed with bounty hunters, desert bikers, battle-bots and secret agents. Experience the heroic adventures of the only 11-year-old who can save our world: The Eon Kid!
This single disc dvd release include 5 episodes from season 1. They are:
Episode 1 "The Legendary Fist"
Episode 2 "The Heir to the Fist"
Episode 3 "The Journey Begins"
Episode 4 "Strength Isn't Everything"
Episode 5 "Ally's Secret"
The interesting thing about this release is that during the original US airing of the series (on the now defunct Kids' WB!), episodes 4 and 5 were combined together. That episode was simply called "Ally's Secret" so it's nice to be able to see the original episodes without being edited.
As for the special features, this disc includes a nice photo gallery, extended trailer for this series, a downloadable mini-poster and sneak peeks. Overall, the special features are better than nothing but I would have liked to see a behind the scenes featurette or episode commentary.
The DVD itself comes with a removable sleeve the matches the cover and the back. Inside the case, a single sheet "Eon Kid" mini-poster (different from the one that can be downloaded via the disc) is included and on the back, a list of episodes is included. Also in the dvd are stickers from the Nick Jr. series Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!
All and all, it's a highly recommended set and I can't wait for future releases."
