    Transformers Live Action Movie Blog had let us know that there are notable dialogue changes in the home video release of the ROTF.

    one such change is...

    "Theatrical
    Mudflap: "I screwed that up! Oh! I'm OK. I'm alright! Oh, oh!"
    Skids: "This is combat, man, what's wrong with you?!" (Wacks Mudflap)

    DVD
    Mudflap: "I screwed that up! Oh! I'm OK. I'm alright! Oh, oh!"
    Skids: "This is combat, man!"
    Mudflap: "I got brain freeze!"
    Skids: "What's wrong with you?!" (Wacks Mudflap)"

    I've checked too... and it's correct.

    For more info and for a clearer shot of the back of the ROTF cover, please visit... Transformers Live Action Movie Blog: ROTF Dialogue Changes for Home Video Release?

    Well i wouldn't mind additional dialog for some characters it would be nice but im sure this may just be them altering the racial stereotype stuff that caused controversy for the film.

    thats entirely possible as the Dvd/bluray release could drag up that who mess again , thank goodness they did not release a talk skids and mudflap, seemingly Hasbro knew better than Micheal bay what mess their personalities would create

    That's an odd change, of course I could hope that some other characters get an extra line or two, but that's unlikely.

    Actually, that's incorrect. The dialog is the same in both the theatrical and DVD versions; the difference lies in that the theatrical version had the line "this is combat, man" line come in too late — on top of Mudflap's "brain freeze" line — which makes it difficult to hear.

    The Simmons/Devastator scene has changed as well I believe.

    Balls becomes Scrotum, I'm sure.

    Ya, it was already Scrotum in theaters. Hard to forget a line like that when referring to a Transformer.

    Maybe I had missed it elsewhere, but that link also reveals that the transforming BB case will be exclusive to Target. Included IMAX footage beats transforming case, methinks. You win this round, Walmart.
