    Cool, I LOVE simple designs like this. It would be even better if there was just the two emblems.

    That's what I'd want, not any puny flesh creatures on it.

    This is also being released in Spain, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Canada, Australia and many other places. Not really big news. Most European countries are getting the DVD in December with a few in November. The UK and Germany are also getting the same transforming packaging as Australia.

    I hope this case will be available here in the U.S. I love those metal cases.

    Yeah I would definitely take that case if offered here, though I can't say that I mind the white ones we are getting for the 2-disk.

    I dunno... I was really looking forward to these metal cases, but think the blue & red glow on "protect" and "destroy" looks kind of cheesy. It's a very "I just started using Photoshop and found the FX options" effect. I think these would have looked infinitely better if those words were just in grey or white, and all the text/logo stuff on the back was removed.

    I don't believe the white 2-Disc cover is metal. I thought it was just a slipcase.

    I wonder how many times it'll be repainted in the coming years.

    Transforming packaging? Haven´t seen that.

    The strange thing is:

    The standard 1-disc DVD is available on the 10th December. Playtime 114 minutes.
    But the 2-disc Steelbook DVD is available on the 12th October. Playtime 144 minutes.

    I´ll deffo go with the Steelbook. Does anyone know if the German version will have something special too? Like a comic for example?

    Does the other DVD release with the white cover and Prime on the front and Megatron on the back have the comic as well?

    Once again, the USA is first in getting the toys, but last when it comes to DVD availability. WHY?

    not a big fan of the metal cases so think I might pass on it. I hate spending theextra money then seeing them getting dented or scratched.
