Seibertron.com has gotten a hold of the Transformers: The Movie 30th Anniversary Blu-ray sets and has now fired up the ole Blu-ray set to try out the movie. Upon checking out the Blu-ray disk, there are a couple of interesting things to note.

The menu screen for the Blu-ray version of the movie shows off Optimus Prime and Hot Rod, with Optimus showing off the matrix and all its glowing energy. It also has the Decepticons and Unicron in various positions in the background. But the most interesting thing happens when one goes to the Bonus Features screen, which features 3 brand new features: 'Til All Are One, a retrospective documentary with the cast; Transformers: The Restoration; and Rolling out the New Cover.

For whatever reason, even though I pre-ordered over a month ago, I won't get my copy of the movie from Amazon until Wednesday.

I guess Amazon doesn't think the movie is "cool enough" to offer release date shipping like they do for other things?

I'm really conflicted on getting this. I had the VHS I bought the DVD, I have 20th anniversary DVD and I've seen the movie so many times I don't ever need to watch it again. Do I really need a new "bonus feature" with flint dillie saying for the millionth time "well we killed Optimus prime because he was just a toy and he wasn't on the shelves anymore. That's all he was, a toy. We didn't think kids would be locking themselves on their rooms over it"?

yeah, the real selling point for me is the quality. Now that we all have bigger TVs, getting the high def version of the film seems like it needs to happen.

The Japanese cover is also a huge bonus to me. That cover is beautiful.

Will the Blueray and Steelbook Blueray have features that the DVD version will not have or will they all have the same features on all of the versions?
I ask because the Walking Dead season 6 DVD doesn't have the unedited Megan scene so I was wondering if something similar would occur with this.
Thank you for any and all help!

I've basically bought every version of every format of this film released in the UK (and a couple that weren't) and the one thing I really, really, really want is for the few glaring instances of miscoloured characters to be corrected.

Hell, even just colouring one of the two Frenzys as Rumble (you know which shot I mean) would be enough to make it the best version, in my eyes.

Not aware of any differences between the two special feature wise - this is based on the info from Shout Factory's website ;)^

I emailed them several times today because I wanted to know what was going on. The pre-order DID have day of release delivery, that's what all their movies and CDs offer. They did explain how things are shipped and I did get a free month of Prime.

I got the steel book version on Saturday, Shout Factory shipped it early! I must say I have the Australia version Blu Ray disk and this set blew that one away! The quality on this blu ray was amazing. I was watching this on a Samsung 55 inch LED TV and I have NEVER seen this movie look so vibrant, full of color and background details are truly amazing. The only negative was there are only a few new bonus features and they show you how they cleaned up the film and the process of the 4K transfer which was very cool. The bonus materials are from the 25th Anniversary disc but still overall I was very happy with this purchase. The poster that comes with the Blu Ray set is very nice as well but you have to order directly from Shout Factory to get it. It is very nice to see the amount of effort that went into this project from Shout Factory. Hot Rod looks amazing, when Megatron is transformed into Galvatron you can see a huge difference in the purple lines used to transform him , the Earth scenes with Hot Rod and Daniel are bright and colorful. Sound quality was also good. If you watch this film in a dark room like you would in a movie theater, I think you will be very impressed with it. A lot of scenes were cleaned up, removing imperfections etc and you can see the difference very clearly! This Blu Ray made my day! Thank you for restoring a wonderful piece of animation history! :BOT: :CON: :KREMZEEK:

Any chance of a screen capture (or even just snapping a pic of the screen with a camera)? Hot Rod looking right (as opposed to how he did on the 20th DVD) takes this from a "meh, I'll probably get it eventually" to "oh man, I better snap this up as soon as possible)

So...on my lunch break I decided to check out Best Buy (they had the best price for Civil War between themselves, Target & Wal-Mart...) I knew the 2 big chains would not have TF:TM..but thought Best Buy might...

No such luck...but I was close enough to a non-chain media store...low and behold they had it! $20. No need to pre-order weeks/months in advance, just walk on in and buy it...Ahh I miss the good old days. 8-)

Local Walmart had the DVD + Digital Copy but not the Blu-ray. Luckily my Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy is sitting in my mailbox ;)^

hey canadians, for those who have not pre-ordered and are looking to find one in the stores, have any of you had any luck?
The local Best Buy in my area has informed me that there are no copies in Ontario or Canada for that matter.
Is there a shortage of this going around that I don't know about?
This is bogus! :oops: :-x :BANG_HEAD: :evil: :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

I'll trade you a copy of the TF:TM Blu Ray I found in store for a CW Computron you can find in store ;)
