    I'm going to pick up the blu ray of DOTM on release day, just can't decide where to get it from. I know there's the standard one with prime on the cover. Then there's the walmart exclusive with sentinel on the cover (which i'm not going to get even if they bundle it with a million bucks, because i hate sentinel so much and want to relieve him of his fuckin duty). Anyway, then there's the best buy exclusive with bee on the cover. Are there any other exclusives I should know about? Which one are you going to pick up?

    in the US, i think that is it. you can import but it won't get release sometime in Oct. or Nov. If you need the BD now, I suggest the one with OP.

    So many people talk about blu-ray, mocking me because I don't have a blu-ray player.

    I don't have one either,so I'll just be picking up the regular DVD version.

    I was hoping that Target would do some kind of special packaging(transforming Prime and Bumblebee cases)like they did for the last two,but I guess not this time.Bummer.

    I've already had the digital version since last week, so that's going to tide me over until all the special/deluxe editions and/or trilogy boxsets are revealed for November. But if I was to buy the basic edition coming out on Friday, I think I'd pick the Best Buy one. I like the dual sided slipcase, especially since it has Shockwave on it.

    Gah! November? That's so far away... haha. I really wanted to buy the box set, but I really want to watch the movie again. Do you know if the box set is blue ray or dvd? Maybe I'll buy the DOTM on dvd for the 18 bucks then get the box set on blu ray if it's available in blu ray

    I was going to wait for the big release in Dec (which I will undoubtedly still get), but when amazon.com dropped the price for Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital to $20 with no tax and eligible for free shipping, I bit. I should have it in-hand on Friday and I will be watching it over and over until I get the goodies filled one in Dec.

    There is no "the" boxset - there are going to be several boxsets made available in different countries. And at least two of them unveiled so far are indeed Blu-Ray. At this point in the home entertainment game, you really don't ever have to worry about not getting Blu-Ray versions. It's the DVD versions that aren't a guarantee anymore since they've officially been greenlit to be phased out - hence why you now see so many BR/DVD combo packs in place of two separate format releases.

    Does anyone know if the cover will look the same underneath the Best Buy exclusive slip cover? I want the Bee and Shockwave slip cover, but I still want the actual cover with Optimus on it too.

    Does the Best Buy Blu Ray Special edition include a DVD and digital copy also?
