Misspelling Alert: your news headline says "pequel" instead of "pRequel" :)

Gotta be honest, a narrated storyboard doesn't do much for me. If this was an *animated* prequel like they originally said it would be, then I'd be on board with it.

I'm definitely sticking with my metal case edition from Future Shop over this one.

Anyone prepared to help a Aussie out with getting me a copy. Not sure if any store here would have it as a exclusive.

Is this the same animated-panel prequel mentioned sometime ago, or is this another entirely different version of it?

Seriously though, these exclusive stuffs are getting ridiculous.

So, it's just going to be a voice over? Bleh. It's not THAT hard to turn a comic into a cartoon... I should know:

PS--episode 1 is "almost" done... 4 pages to go. Looking for a release date around the end of the month.

this walmart exclusive could be a dud. Back when ROTS came out on dvd walmart was offering this dvd bonus called "The Story of Star Wars" narrated by 3po and R2. It basically summarized all of luke's episodes and all of Anakin's episodes and was like 30 min. long. There was some funny r2 and 3po interaction, live 'host' footage as well, but nothing too exciting. I was hoping for more. I am tempted by the walmart TF bonus - but wary.

I'm sure this exclusive will only be paired with the single disc version of the film, so anyone planning on buying the 2-Disc version will either be out of luck or have to buy another copy of the movie...

Which...

There might be some family member that might be willing to part with the exclusive.

As soon as possible, we'll need a review of the prequel disc to see if its worth it.

Posted by Gauntlet101010 on October 3rd, 2007 @ 1:26pm CDT
Here's an idea: how about a DVD with all the special features instead of all these damned exclusives?

You know what? I think I'll wait a few years to buy the DVD at all. Becuase, inevetably, the "ultimate" version will be released with a whole lot of other stuff not included in ANY of these versions.

I saw the in-store ad today at my local Wal-Mart. The Prequel DVD is included with the 2-Disc Special Edition version. I believe it also said it comes in a special metal casing.
Re: Walmart's Version of Transformers Movie to include Exclusive Pequel (378782)
Posted by nitefall on October 3rd, 2007 @ 2:41pm CDT
And Wal-Mart isn't charging extra for the DVD. The 2 Disc Special Edition is going to cost $22.96 at Wal-Mart stores.

metal case or bust. If you had all the Voltron collector's editions and The Departed bestbuy case you'd understand. They're so awesome. If I can get it with the walmart disc - why not? Price should be < $20, don't like their price.

Posted by human_TF_reimagin on October 4th, 2007 @ 10:50am CDT
Target has exclusive bonus features on an extra disc for most the big releases... anyone know if that'll be the deal with TF as well? Sometimes they have other random gimmicks for the exclusives too. Who knows.

The transforming packing sounds mad sweet, is there a retailer or website in the US that might be using that? :-?

They made such a big deal about Peter Cullen as Optimus, but I honestly think the original Bumblebee voice would have done wonders for them movie. Not like he had to do a lot of lines.

This movie also has Frank Welker as Megatron, but he's not doing a G1 Megatron voice, he's trying to make it sound like the movie Megatron. Sad.
