    I saw that the 1986 movie will get a Blu-Ray version release. Is it already out or its set to be released later? I see it nowhere in Canada, Quebec.

    I already have the 20th anniversay version which has 2 discs, 1 widescreen with remastered colors disc and the other disc being the movie in original version.

    Is there anything added/different in the Blu-Ray version? Does the Blu-Ray version use the remastered colors?

    ==================================

    About the Blu-Ray version of the first TF Bay movie, I hear we get a 20$ refund if we have in possession the DVD version, is that still available or its expired?

    Does the Blu-Ray version include the IMAX scenes? I am asking this because the ''The Dark Knight'' included the IMAX scenes in the Blu-Ray only.

    ==================================

    I do have a HDTV, a PS3 and have both the 20th anniversary 1986 movie and the DVD version of the first Bayformers movie. Is it worth buying both movies' Blu-Ray versions?

    The only version of the '86 movie on Blu-ray is a UK release. Good news though it's region free... so it will play on any Blu-ray player. You wont be disapointed because the Picture Quality will blow your mind!

    I reviewed the UK Version of the 86 movie on Blu-Ray.

    The picture quality is fantastic, but that's about it. If you just want a solid picture quality, it's worth it. But it offers absolutely nothing else.

    The live action movie does not include the extended IMAX cut. Nor does it contain deleted scenes of those. There was a $10 refund offer, not $20. But I am not sure if that is still available.

    I agree the picture quality is outstanding. The sound is alright. There are no extras with it though unfortunately. If you have a 1080p TV with at least 60Hz,the picture alone is worth it. It looks that damn good!

    I just got the Live Action movie in Blu-Ray, I can get a refund for 10$ until the 10th December 2009.

    Hmm... I read the instruction inside for the refund and... I don't understand the steps, what is the tab or UPC?

    My thoughts would be the barcode.

    Yes, the full barcode is the UPC.

    Has anyone picked up the new TF '86 blu Ray released by Madman? It has bonus features similar to the regular DVD releases, eg, Scramble City, Trailer, The Touch Music video.

    I am curious if the picture quality is similar to the UK blu ray.
