Hey, everyone. I just wanted to ask if any of you know where I could purchase Transformers: the Movie (The animated one in 1986) on Blu-Ray at a decent price? Every place I find it, it's always super expensive and I'd rather not pay over $50 USD for it.

It was never released on Blu-Ray in the United States. The only blu-Rays that exist for it were ones released in European and Australian markets, but the video/audio quality of each of those is no superior than the U.S. DVD release of the movie by Sony in 2006, meaning that that DVD version is as good a quality as that movie is possibly ever going to look. Thus, that 2006 Sony DVD is presently your best option.

And also just for some information I have the Blu-Ray version and, I must say is a hole disapointment, because the picture is so sharp that you see even more the dust on the sheets sometimes and also some special Effects don't comes out so good as on the 2006 Sony Remastered version, and I must admit that the picture quality even if that's just a DVD so no HD quality, the Sony version has a much better picture.
At the moment I have all version of this movie, even the UK 1986 Version without the remastered and all in one I recommande you the Sony DVD version.
