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.

While I am still pretty excited about this release. I wish they were actually releasing a 4K Blu-ray with this updated transfer. Instead we are getting a standard 2K Blu-ray that has been remastered from 4K content that they derived from the film.

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.
