(July 21, 2008 – Burbank, CA) – Quicksilver, Talley Hawk, Super Twins and the rest of the SilverHawks are back with the first ever DVD release of “SilverHawks: Season 1 Volume 1” on October 14, 2008 from Warner Home Video (WHV). Created as a space-bound equivalent to the hit “Thundercats” animated series, “SilverHawks” originally featured many of the same voice talents. “SilverHawks: Season 1 Volume 1” will be released in a four-disc collector set that includes 32 action-packed cartoons, as well as a special featurette entitled "Partly Metal, Partly Real," which examines the development of “Silverhawks,” the follow-up animated series from the same creative team that created “Thundercats.” “SilverHawks: Season 1 Volume 1” is priced to own at $44.98 SRP and has an order due date of September 9, 2008. In the far-flung future, the Galaxy of Limbo is in dire need of some heroes. Terrorized by the ruthless villain Mon-Star and his intergalactic horde, the only hope against this tyranny are the partly metal, partly real cybernetically enhanced super-team … the SilverHawks. Led by the daring Quicksilver, the SilverHawks use their amazingly enhanced bodies, their razor sharp wits, and a steely resolve to battle Mon-Star and the forces of evil across the galaxy. Heroes like Quicksilver, Tally Hawk, Super Twins, Blue Grass, Copper Kid and Stargazer sacrificed their human lives on Earth to be sent into outer space and challenge their intergalactic enemies. “Just as its predecessor ‘Thundercats’ has met with tremendous success on DVD, so do we believe will be the case for ‘SilverHawks.’ The 80s produced some of the most enduring and popular animated series which fans love to collect and share with their own children,” said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Sports Marketing.
