    I hate that transforming case. I'll get the normal 2-disk set, I guess.

    I take it the HD release gets no exclusive treatment besides butting Blu-Ray out of the picture.

    I'm probabily with Best Buy. I love those little Robot Heroes.

    And I'm going to pass on the Transformable case.

    Who am I kidding? I'm getting all these plus the Wal-mart set. Though, there's not a Circuit City around here... T_T

    Definitely getting the walmart version. I wanted that transforming case, but the new pictures of it make it look so cheezy.

    That TFing DVD case looks like crap. Hopefully, if I can, I'll get the Best Buy. (Robot heroes, Epic WIN!)

    So is is confirmed that the Best Buy exclusive is being released on the same day as the rest? Last I heard it was coming out in Novemebr, but thought to maybe be a typo.

    I'm definitely going with Best Buy though, that Target transforming case is so retarded-looking it's laughable. Great idea, HORRIBLE execution.

    Target was going to get my money one way or another. Looks like I'll have a decision to make when I go to buy it. If they also include the exclusive comic with the transforming case, that'll definetly sway my decision.

    Online content? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Not only do I not have a Circuit City within three hundred miles, but online content for a DVD release is just plain wrong. WRONG WRONG WRONG!

    I'm torn right now between the walmart one and the Best Buy one. Best Buy won me over with actual figures!! But then I heard about the collectable case and new art for the walmart one...I dunno, I guess I'll have to wait and see how they look. I can't get it until my lunchbreak that day anyways, so I'll prolly check online here for piccys and feedback.

    But it transforms from Optimus Prime to a folded up Optimus Prime. :thumb 

    My wife had planned on picking it up at Target for sake of convience, I will end up with that case probably.

    Target and Best Buy get my votes so far.

    A question though: the Target exclusive just includes the regular DVD without the extras, right?

    It says 2-disk Special Edition, so I'm guessing that it does include them :D . The question is, which version will have the Exclusive comic attatched to it at Target?
