    The commercial's also been popping up on Cartoon Network and both Nickelodeon and Nicktoons as well.

    Only available at Best Buy? G1 was available from Shout Factory at Walmart, wasn't it?

    It didn't say "only". something tells me there may be some sort of Best Buy incentive or something. hard to say for sure. I'd imagine since wal-marts here still carry G1, that there won't be any trouble finding it at Wal-Mart as well.

    I think the ad I saw (also on the HUB) said "In Stores Now" but it did flash up the Best Buy logo on the ad..obviously they've paid a few bucks for the ad.

    I rec'd my copy for Amazon.com yesterday.

    So, can a Moderator or Admin help to clear this up? Is this news afterall? It doesn't seem to be getting quite as much attention as I thought it would. I'm not sure if it's old news, or if it's just being overshadowed by the Kre-o or the DotM score on Transformers.com, hard to say. Any help to clear this up would be appreciated.

    My only problem with the commercial is that the video quality makes it look like it was assembled out of Youtube clips or something. You'd hope an ad for a DVD was an accurate representation of the DVD itself.

    I think it's kind of weird that the commercial doesn't note that this is a '90s series being re-released (except for the "15th Anniversary" banner on the box). It might make unfamiliar viewers think this is just a recent series that they haven't heard of.

    But then again, these releases are pretty much for people who have embraced the series and folks who have heard the good things about BW and would like to see it, right?

    I'll probably order the Complete Series set from Shout! Factory's site some time next week. : D

    Beast Wars was ok, but hopefully they'll pack more per disk and keep the price low, unlike G1! :scalper 

    When are they gonna release TF Victory on Blu-Ray with English voice overs?
    :popcorn
