Some of the scenes in darker environments look off, but I'm hoping that's just due to the nature of this being a recording of a projection in a room not made for such things.

The amount they talked about "color correcting" gives me pause because that's the same buzz word that got thrown around a lot for the 25th anniversary DVD and that's one of the worst looking versions of the movie in existence.

In short - please, don't have gone and screwed this up trying to get fancy.

Saw these comparisons between screencaps of the UK Blu-Ray and screencaps of the Shout! Factory Blu-Ray... and it's looking like the Shout! Factory one is a much darker-tinted, slightly more blurry version with more of the picture cropped off the top and bottom.

Not really liking that, honestly.

You can put this under very, very strange, but Amazon has raised the price on the Steelbook version of the movie, back to $34 and change. For those of us who had our pre-orders in either before, or when it dropped to $19.99 that price is still good.

It looks...largely the same. I mean don't get me wrong, it's still probably in my top 5 favorite movies, but what kind of new details can we actually expect to recieve just because it's a blu-ray?

I just noticed that Kickback's in the crowd! And so is Bitstream (I assume since Thundercracker became someone else (Not up for the "Who is Cyclonus" debate right now) that the only other Seeker had to be Bitstream) Actually, maybe it's not Kickback. Maybe it's Ransack! The movie had the least amount of animation errors (There were still some though, but that's what made G1 awesome) so I'm surprised that they actually put in Kickback's animation model and not recolor another model. Also, Starscream still has very feminine lips when he scream "Get on with the ceremony!" :lol:

Overall, I'm going to get this. I first rented this at Blockbuster when I was about 4 or 5 years old, and this set me on my path of being a Transformers fan, even though I had almost no idea who any of the characters from the show were. So with help from this movie, the Armada toys (My first two Transformers were Cyclonus and Deluxe Optimus Prime), and one of my best friends, I have become a lifelong fan of Transformers. :D

Guessing the video doesn't look much different... or your phone (?) Seeing the blu-ray on a giant high-def screen (VS DVD) should yield some noticeable resolution improvements.

That's not how it looks on my TV or laptop. Here's the same frame (or close to it) from my laptop. Click on the images to view the difference (oddly the smaller image looks the same until you zoom in). The one with the black bars is from my laptop.

As for the "cut" of the widescreen, you and I both know the widescreen version is BS and that the proper way to view all of image is with the full size version.

Thanks, man. That really helps. The screenshots that were used in the comparison must have been early unfinished versions that Shout! Factory used as placeholders before they fully completed their transfer or something. I'll let the guy who did the comparisons know that the final product isn't nearly as dark as those he believed. ;)^

BTW, you can pre-order the US version of this Blueray at Amazon Japan, so those in Japan can get it too:

- https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/aw/d/B01GU8 ... ref=plSrch?tag=seibertron00-22&

This is great value, as usually domestic Blmueray/DVD/CD prices are through the roof like, 60 dollars for the Japanese version of the same product).

I hope the blueray is all region and that the digital copy is DRM-free. If not, will consult my good friend google about remedying it... I have pre-ordered it anyway, but this is the last time I'm buying this, even if the aliens fro Men and Black give us a new media in a few years. No more "White Albums" again for me!

S!F Blu rays I have purchased are region A only. Fortunately Japan & North America share the same region, so you should be ok. --I only know this because on other forums I have communicated with folks form the UK, and they could not play S!F Blu Rays, unless they got some "work around" such as a region free blu ray player or specialized computer software that would serve the same purpose.

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.

Image

Yesterday's Twincast/Podcast #155 also got a hand in checking out the new features, so feel free to head on over and download the Podcast to listen to some of the staff's thoughts on the new release of the movie.

This new version of the classic 1986 movie is set to be released tomorrow, September 13, so head on over to the below links to get your copy of this milestone movie!

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.

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.

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

really? Mine is coming tomorrow the blueray with steelbook and the DvD


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: :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

Fun fact, this release is also available on iTunes. The release appears to include all the bonus features as on the Blu Ray. If all the ruckus about the digital copy thats included with the disc being nothing but trouble, then for those looking for a digital solution, this is here!

Nope got nothing like that in my area, few chain stores and a comic shop everything else closed down years ago. Plus i wouldnt use FYE if they were still around, had a bad experience with them and vowed never to use them again. But i checked out the other best buy and they had a single copy of the steelbook version, thats the only version they got in and it was the last copy in the area. Surprised target doesnt have it, i got Escape From NY from them and thats a hell of a lot less popular than transformers.

Less popular than the Paramount Movie franchise YES. Less popular than TF:TM itself...no

We as fans love TF:TM..but outside our niche, its not really well known. I was fortunate . The guy I was asking about it could not even find it in the directory...he kept thinking I was looking for one of the Bay Films...He didn't even know there was a "cartoon movie"...it was only by chance a younger female clerk overheard my conversation as I kept saying "30th anniversary edition" over and over again...she found it in their system and where it would be in the store.

Glad you found one though. The clerks at my Best Buy had no clue.

Places I've seen it for sale. Wasn't specifically looking for it, just happened to see it.

FYE had all 3 versions, Steelbook for like $32 (I think), regular BR for 22 (Again I think) and DVD for $10 (that I'm sure of).

Meijers only had the DVD (at least I didn't see the BR) for a buck less than FYE.
