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.

How many people would even be able to watch a 4K transfer?

Amazon has drastically lowered the price of the Steelbook version of the movie to $19.99

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.

Seibertronians, our very good friends over at Shout! Factory have given us an exclusive clip from their 30th Anniversary Blu-ray relase of Transformers: The Movie to share with you! Relive the seconds-long reign of Starscream before Galvatron crashed the party in this new featurette!

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

Are they ever going to get the music video for The Touch on one of these releases?

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.

Courtesy of our good friends at Shout! Factory, we now have a couple copies of the Transformers The Movie 30th Anniversary Blu-Ray sets in-hand. One is the premium Steelbook version, the other is the regular Blu-Ray version.

The regular version features a reversible cover so that you can transform your set to feature either the Japanese poster artwork from the movie or the newly commissioned Livio Ramondelli cover.

Both sets include a Digital Download code so that you can watch it in all of its new digital glory right on the comfort of your computer or mobile device at any time. The url for the download, TFTheMovie1986.com, is currently unavailable but should function by the Blu-Ray's release date on September 13th, 2016.

Bonus features included with these sets:
  • 'Till All Are One - A brand-new, comprehensive documentary looking back at the Transformers: The Movie with members of the cast and crew, including story consultant Flint Dille, cast members Gregg Berger, Susan Blu, Neil Ross, Dan Gilvezan, Singer/Songwriter Stan Bush and composer Vince DiCola!
  • Audio commentary with direcdtor Nelson Shin, story consultant Flint Dille, and star Susan Blu
  • Featurettes
  • Storyboards
  • Trailers and TV spots
  • ... and more (screenshots later this weekend)

Both the fullscreen and widescreen versions of the film are included. First time on Blu-Ray in North America. Brand-new bonus materials. Movie shown as never seen before: remastered from a new 4K transfer. Looks fantastic!

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.

The cover of the steelbook and the sleeve is garbage. If I pick this up, it will be because of this:

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. ;)^
