    I decided since I dont collect the robot heroes and Im not really feeling the transforming dvd case, (super flimsy looking) I went and prepaid for the dvd at fye today. He let me look at the dvd case (tin) and after that decided to purchase * chose the decepticon case*..


    It was exciting to hold the DVD ;)  I swear if I didnt have my 2 year old daughter with me id have ran with it ;)

    Two different tins. The front is a decepticon or autobot logo. It would be cool if they were dual sided. The only other releases the interest me is the t-shirt or hat offer and you can buy either of those at most clothing stores including walmart.

    if its full on animated im all over that. but if its just some crappy animated tweaks of comic stills, ill pass. tin is runner up to animated if i can find it. then i have to decide between the tins. grrrr.

    You may not have a chance to chose tins. There are 2 fye stores in my area, the one in the mall only had decepticon tins which im cool with and the fye stand alone store didnt have any at all. They were all reserved. So gotta make that decision quickly. I am under the impression that the animated walmart special is stills since its just narrated.

    Oh man, I had a slight dislexic moment here.

    I almost thought "Destroy" was under the Autobt symbol 'cause it's written in red and I thought "Protect" was under the Decepticon symbol 'cause it's written in blue.

    :banghead:  :stick:  :lol  :lol  :lol  :lol

    just preordered the decepticon one. was planning on autobot, but the decepticon one is just cooler. still wish it was two sided. if they have a ton left tomorrow i may get both.... >> and if the animated thing turns out to be worth it ill pick that up and give the movie to someone.

    I want a tin one, but the drives to get one are so far. Both FYE and Suncoast closed stores in my local mall awhile back. And now I have to drive really far to get to those stores.

    BTW, do you have to preorder this in order to get this? Or will they have plenty for the others who didn't preorder?

    You should pre order if you want one with a tin. From what the fye people say, they are very limited.

    Well heres what the first fye store i contacted said.. they are all out of tins because people had reserved them.

    second fye store.. they are all out of autobot tins because of reservations but have decepticons.

    if a store is still open, just call and reserve one, you only have to put down 5 dollars.

    Yeah, but I have to drive like 50 miles to get to one. I asked a friend of mine who lives in San Diego to get one for me, since he has a Suncoast near him, but I just asked him today, so he didn't get to preorder. So that means he can only go by and pick what they have.

    The red=Decepticons still messes me up. All my life it's been

    Autobots=red
    Decepticons=purple

    But now, for all merchandising, video games, etc---they made the Decepticons red. (and 'bots blue) Confusing, and very pointless, as there's few things guys my age associate purple with more than Decepticons.

    The Red Destory and Blue Protect I beleive is in mention of the eyes of the Transformers except for Frenzy. He would have looked much more evil with red eyes!!!
