    According to the Rumor Mill of The Digital Bits, there will be an extended edition of Transformers on DVD and Blu-ray released in 2009, likely to coincide with the sequel's release.

    it will probably just be that one version they had in theaters that didn't really have any good new scenes

    So I guess this'll be the version that was shown in IMAX?

    I went and saw it in IMAX and the extra footage wasn't that great. It was worth it to see it in IMAX but not worth it for the extra footage. It really didn't add to the movie at all. I was waiting for the release of this, I knew it was going to happen soon than later.

    the extra scenes are just showing more minutes of no need human dialogs instead of showing more of the Transformers.

    Hmm no one can appreciate 5 more minutes of footage that they didn't have to give out.

    I know this is pathetically optimistic, but what if ILM provides some more footage to illustrate a bit more backstory on Cybertron or the 'Cons talking to each other?

    if there are no all-new bonus features, then I'll pass

    Even a new commentary track with the cast and a whole collection of TV spots will do

    Transformers extended DVD coming soon

    According to thedigitalbits.com (an extremely reliable dvd site) there will be a Transformers extended DVD coming soon.

    "From Paramount, we're hearing that a Transformers: Extended Edition is planned for DVD and Blu-ray release in 2009, likely timed to coincide with the theatrical release of Bay's sequel film next summer"

    ...and this is why i have yet to buy the movie. Pretty obvious move really. All big effects movies do this. As long as it's more than the IMAX cut (which admittedly was good, I'd just like more though.)

    Transformers 1.5, now with 450 hours of previously unseen footage. Granted, most of it is of the crew hanging around the craft services table, but still... :)

    somehow though I don't think TF will have the same ammount of cut material to tantalise us with.

    If this is true, and the Transformers movie EE doesn't include any actual Transformers, then that's just a huge pile of fail.
