    just wondering what differenced (apart from extras) there are between TFTM: Reconstructed (out now here in the UK) and the 20th Anni DVD out soon?

    Oh and is it worth getting the reconstructed DVD if i already have a standard copy of TFTM on dvd?

    TFTM reconstructed is basically the copy of TFTM before they cut around the edges to produce the 4:3 finished film. It features all the animation that was drawn before bits had to be cut off around the side. It has the North American version of the film (the UK parts are in the extras) and has been remastered.

    The 20th Anniversary from Sony BMG is remastering the broadcast master (the one you've seen before many times) and releasing it in 4:3 (as it is meant to be seen) and widescreen (with the top and bottom cut off as it was shown in the cinemas in 1986). I'm guessing it will include the North American version of the film.

    Since you are from the UK, however, I would wait for Metrodome's 20th Anniversary TFTM DVD as they are working with Sony BMG to obtain the same master and many of the extra features. Also, the UK version will include Scramble City and TF Zone and it comes out 1 day before the Sony BMG DVD. :)

    Yea, even though this is the 4th time, they have all included a different version of the film

    Maverick 2001 - UK version with swear
    Prism (sub license from Metrodome) 2003 - UK version without swear
    Metrodome (reconstructed) 2005 - US version
    Metrodome (20th Anni. DVD) 6th November 2006 - Hopefully branching of all versions

    By "swearing version," do you mean the part where Spike yells "OH SH*T!" or were there other swears?
