Do you think he wanted to correct little errors in the film to make it accurate, and thats why he's not happy?

I dont know. He doesn't understand the culture he's entered into by directing TFTM. We'll buy multiple copies, special editions all that stuff.

I am happy he got the single disc version out. I want one with deleted scenes and making of TRANSORMERS before I buy a super edition version.

Does anyone actually proofread these news bits before they post them? Sheesh...

From what has been said, it seems like all the deleted scenes were worthless. The only ones I'd care about would involve the bots, and we all know that's not happening.

I thought it was a solid DVD, though I'm sure a Super Mega Ultra Edition in a collectible Metal Case will come out a month from now that I'll buy as well.

No excuses as to why the UK has to wait more than a month before we get it?

A couple of hours of bonus features is hours of bonus features. Any number of hours greater than 1 typically qualifies.

Anyway, I'm happy with the single disc version that came with the "animated" Prequel Comic. Special features are fun, but I rarely go back to watch them again and again.

What I would buy would be a "Transformers: From Comics/Toys/TV to Film" documentary. Something on par with what they released for Superman Returns would be good.

It has been reported in another thread that it was not and the Bay left it that way. Whether on purpose or not is still in question.

Yeah! Michael Bay is a Blu-ray man! I'm not really for or against either one, except that a PS3 is the only hi-def player I have, so naturally I'm for Blu-ray. Too bad Bay didn't have enough clout to get Paramount to bring Transformers to Blu-ray. :( Maybe in a year or so... (fingers crossed).

I'm sure he would have liked to self promote himself more, and was unable to or something like that.

Maybe chuck in some references to his other films like the Island and Pearl Harbour, anything to promote himself.

QFT FTW!

Aside from the fact most of the bonus features blew chunks, Bays mug was plastered all over the damned place on disc 2. A way to make the DVD set better would've been to focus on the TFs, not Bay's love affair with the military or how they made sure they cast "hotties" regardless of acting ability. And, I don't know about you guys, but I can sleep better tonight knowing that an easter egg showed me they properly cast a friggin' chihuahua in a Transformers movie. UGH! :-x

You know what would have been a cool extra? Letting us see the bots transform in 360 degrees. Pick you angle, hit the button, see it transform.

Simple, elegant, etc.

sounds like there might be a special SPECIAL edition to be released later then? Cuz he wasn't happy. :P

It'll be his reason for making ANOTHER super TF movie dvd set. Prolly for x-mas. lol!

Well color me three shades of surprised. I really did not see that one coming.

He's definitely something else, isn't he?

Agreed... im pretty sure we all own at least 2 or three copies of the animated movie, why is this one going to be any different
