SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT UNVEILS SECOND COVER ART IMAGE FOR TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE 20TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL EDITION DVD

Second Image Of “Transforming” Cover By Legendary Artist Don Figueroa Revealed For The First Time

New York, New York, August 15, 2006 — Since SONY BMG Music Entertainment announced the November 7th release of TRANSFORMERS: The Movie 20th Anniversary Special Edition DVD¸ fans have been buzzing with anticipation about the details of the two-disc set.

At Comic-Con 2006, fans were told that the DVD’s collectibility would extend to the packaging itself with a “transforming” image. SONY BMG commissioned fan-favorite TRANSFORMERS artist Don Figueroa to create the imagery for the special cover, and displayed for the first time the art featuring Optimus Prime appropriately situated in a position of prominence. Joining the Autobot leader are Megatron, Bumblebee, Starscream, Blaster and more of the most popular TRANSFORMERS characters.

Today, SONY BMG is revealing the second Don Figueroa image that will comprise the “transforming” artwork. In this image, Hot Rod – as he transforms into Rodimus Prime – is grasping the Matrix of Leadership as it lights the Autobots’ darkest hour. Above, Unicron begins to destruct, while Galvatron, Arcee and Springer look on.

For the 20th anniversary edition DVD, Sony BMG Home Entertainment completely re-mastered and color-corrected the film and will present Optimus Prime, Megatron and the rest of the star-studded Autobots and Decepticons in true splendor through three distinct versions: 16x9 Widescreen presentation, the Autobot Matrix of Knowledge presentation featuring trivia and fun facts about the movie itself; and a full-screen edition.

To further commemorate the 20th anniversary of the film, SONY BMG is providing fans with some extra-celebratory content that lets them track back to the true origins of the TRANSFORMERS. After careful consideration and preparation, Sony BMG has scoured the archives for the best TRANSFORMERS-related footage available, and the DVD will include the original commercials for the toy line and movie -- allowing viewers to see how and where the phenomenon began.

TRANSFORMERS: The Movie features the voice of Orson Welles in his final role, as well as stars Eric Idle, Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Casey Kasem, Robert Stack, John Moschitta, Peter Cullen, and Frank Welker. The DVD also features a winning soundtrack featuring the iconic theme "The TRANSFORMERS" performed by Lion, and the popular "The Touch," performed by Stan Bush. The movie, set in 2005, chronicles the efforts of the heroic Autobots to defend their home of Cybertron from the evil Decepticons and Unicron, a huge robotic creature that devours planets.

It was never released on Blu-Ray in the United States. The only blu-Rays that exist for it were ones released in European and Australian markets, but the video/audio quality of each of those is no superior than the U.S. DVD release of the movie by Sony in 2006, meaning that that DVD version is as good a quality as that movie is possibly ever going to look. Thus, that 2006 Sony DVD is presently your best option.

And also just for some information I have the Blu-Ray version and, I must say is a hole disapointment, because the picture is so sharp that you see even more the dust on the sheets sometimes and also some special Effects don't comes out so good as on the 2006 Sony Remastered version, and I must admit that the picture quality even if that's just a DVD so no HD quality, the Sony version has a much better picture.
At the moment I have all version of this movie, even the UK 1986 Version without the remastered and all in one I recommande you the Sony DVD version.
