    At work this evening I was doing the order for our promotional goods for the week of 10/18, and one of the "deals" is buy $25 worth of ____ product and get Transformers 2 for $9.99. We had a similar deal for Wall-E when it came out and the promo ran the week of the DVD's release, so I would anticipate that the same goes for ROTF. What I take this to mean is that we will see the release on 10/20!
    I apologize for not saying exactly where I work, but we are technically not supposed to talk about upcoming promotions (also why I didn't specify what products you need to buy $25 of.) I am sure some sharp folks out there can figure it out!
    Sorry if this is old news but it is the first clue of an actual release date I have seen!

    i think this is correct. another TFWer reported that his store had TF2 listed for Oct 20th, but wasn't sure if it was legit.

    Transformers '07 was released theatrically July 3, 2007. Video release was Oct. 16, 2007. I was stunned it was so fast. So I kind of predicted Oct. myself. Glad we're getting video quicker because I remember Jurassic Park was released theatrically June 11, 1993 and video didn't come until Oct. 4, 1994, to which I counted down the days.

    Sounds about right when Amazon UK lists 30 November for Region 2's release date. (It was the first Monday in December 2007 for TF1, the 3rd.)

    After talking with my DVD distributor directly, they do have ROTF slated to ship on 10/16 to my store (this is in line with the 10/20 Tuesday release!) I made sure I am getting a nice big flashy display shipper too! :)

    I totally remember that, man it took forever! And Jurassic Park was shown on network tv (NBC) May 7, 1995 after Orlando beat Jordan and the Bulls in Game 1 (sorry, I'm a basketball junkie too)
    JP's days between theatrical release and video release: 480
    Days between video release and first tv airing: 215

    Not to hijack the thread or nothin' but I always found it curious how almost all Speilberg related movies/entities are super-slow to make their way onto new formats (first DVDs, now blu ray)
