And I have now lost any and all interest in getting this because I'd feel like I was missing out on something.

I wonder if this will ever be included in some sort of ULTIMATE BOX SET!!!! :michaelbay: I guess they don't usually include the movie tie-in, but it'd be nice to have one slim set, rather than 4 different sets of DVDs. :BANG_HEAD:

Anyway, I'm thinking the collectable cards are better. Those snippets (Beast bites) are available online (and aren't very good), and the extras usually disappoint me.

Then again, I shudder to think of how badly the cards might have been done... :SICK:

I picked up my copy at Target, not knowing it was sold anywhere else... I guess I figured that the movie, like the toyline, would be a store exclusive.

Oddly enough, the "Predacons Rising" endcap had been taken down, and the toys were back in their usual section. The movie was in the regular Audio/Video/Game department.

Also, there was a coupon attached to the front that gave $5 off any Transformers toy purchase. I used it to pick up Darksteel, since I didn't have him.

So if I buy all the seasons I'll have to buy those individual discs that have the season premieres/finales separate?

Aren't they just imitating the same BS they pull with the hundreds of live action Transformers movie exclusives on a smaller scale?

Let me ask the important question, any new footage from the actual movie that wasn't shown on tv?

Nope.

The movie was leaked online ahead of its TV premiere, so those of us who saw both saw that the Hub just showed what all was in the commercial-free version.

Around here Target has the DVD version. I haven't seen it on Blu-ray or DVD in any other store. Maybe it's delayed in Canada like season 2 was?

Maybe, I got the DVD on Amazon.ca, because the Blu Ray got pushed back until October 22nd for some reason, at least in Canada it has.

I wish we would get that design of Optimus in promotional images. Nothing against the boxart, but I wish that head he has would either have a mouthplate, a more show accurate head, or an older face. I mean, look at that:

And compare it to this:

I thought the cards would be hand-drawn, like comic-book style. :-? These CG renders are frankly... disappointing. Plus, they feature 3 of my least favorite characters in Prime:
A) Grandpa Optimus - "Now go to bed early Autobots and fight evil!"
B) Bumblebee - "I'm cool and I talk now and there are a billion of me on shelves! SCRAP!"
C) Megatron - "I AM EVIL AND SCREAM A LOT BUT DON'T REALLY TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MY ARMY OR MISSIONS! I'M LIKE YOUR ABUSIVE DAD WHO SHOWS UP JUST TO MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE CRAP WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG! AND I BEAT YOU! WOO!"

:SICK: :SICK: :SICK:

Dude, your sig is too large, choose one pic and loose the rest, it's in the rules.

How are these collector cards? You can only get them in this set, and there won't be more to complete the set so what's the point or appeal to these?
If they where exclusive artwork or special variants of blind packed trading cards I would see the need to call them collector's cards.

I wasnt too impressed with Predacons Rising. Although we finally did get get some new Predacons (a big 2 lol) What was the point of using Target repaints in the movie ? And why no Lazerback and Ripclaw ?
