According to CNN.com, it would appear that HD-DVD is finished, with Toshiba stating that it would:
cease developing, manufacturing, and marketing HD DVDs after "recent major changes in the market." It promised to continue offering support and service for all existing Toshiba HD DVD products.

This comes on the back of news that Warner Brothers Home Entertainment announced that they would only be releasing DVD's in Blu Ray form, and Walmart announcing their support of only Blu-Ray DVD's.

Meanwhile, engadgethd.com have posted a very blurry image of what appears to be a listing for the 2 disc edition of the Transformers Movie on Blu Ray in Circuit City internal Database. Since the release has not been confirmed by Dreamworks or Paramount, it can only be assumed as a rumour.
You can check out the image below, or at the engadgethd.com website.

Hasbro have issued another Press Release, this time relating to the release of Premium Series Movie figures.

TRANSFORMERS Movie Premium Series Rolls Out to Retail!
Continuing in Spring ’08, TRANSFORMERS fans will be able to get the ‘best of’ TRANSFORMERS Movie characters in Deluxe, Voyager and Leader classes at retail! These characters all feature premium deco treatments and finishes and silver foil packaging to create the ultimate collectible movie figures.

Transformers Movie Premium Series DELUXE CLASS (SRPs: $9.99)

Premium Series BARRICADE
Keeping his armor polished and his vehicle mode looking sharp, Premium Series BARRICADE is hoping that MEGATRON will return again soon to lead the DECEPTICONS to glory. In the meantime, BARRICADE has made some changes to his vehicle mode in order to blend in better and bide his time till MEGATRON’s hopeful return.

Premium Series AUTOBOT JAZZ
Since getting off-lined by DECEPTICON BRAWL, AUTOBOT JAZZ has worked with IRONHIDE to upgrade his endoskeleton reinforcements and has kept his vehicle mode absolutely pristine. Something about getting so badly damaged made him care even more than he used to about looking good.

Premium Series BUMBLEBEE
Ever since the final battle against the DECEPTICONS, BUMBLEBEE has been meticulous about his appearance. With Sam’s help he immediately buffed out every scratch in his finish for a premium sales-room shine. But don’t let his premium finish fool you because BUMBLEBEE is always ready for battle against any DECEPTICON enemy with his new battle mask head sculpt.

Transformers Movie Premium Series VOYAGER CLASS (SRPs: $19.99)

Premium Series IRONHIDE
With the war finally over, IRONHIDE is free to return to the simple, easy life he knew before. Captain Lennox has been kind enough to lend him some space in his barn to store the crates containing his weapons collection. In return for IRONHIDE watching over his family while he is away on duty, Lennox keeps the old AUTOBOT warrior in perfect condition.

Premium Series BLACKOUT
The only goals BLACKOUT ever had were to serve MEGATRON, fight for DECEPTICON dominance and be the most perfect soldier he could. He follows orders without question, even to the point of self-termination and maintains himself and his weapons in pristine condition.

Transformers Movie Premium Series LEADER CLASS (SRPs: $39.99)

Premium Series OPTIMUS PRIME
OPTIMUS PRIME now travels the streets of Earth in his super-detailed Semi vehicle mode searching for MEGATRON and his evil DECEPTICON forces. As OPTIMUS PRIME enters the battlefield he is prepared to engage in close combat with his new energy sword and Movie accurate head sculpt.

Premium Series MEGATRON
As MEGATRON reboots to full awareness from the melting ice that has kept him prisoner for ten thousand years, he is prepared to seek revenge for every indignity to which he has been subjected. With his movie accurate detail, MEGATRON is ready to destroy all who stand in his way and finish the battle against those pesky AUTOBOTS!
