    We received this press release from Sony BMG:


    (Emphasis mine)

    Sounds like the cool special features may get a whole lot cooler. I wonder what's in store? Special "early-bird" look at the Teaser Trailer for TF2007, perhaps?

    Well it would be if the DVD was due for release anytime this year in the UK. (I could be wrong, but Play.com has it listed for March '07.) Let's hope they keep the super-special content available until sometime next year...

    The DVD listed on Play.com in the Uk is NOT the Sony BMG release
    This is another release by Metrodome with as yet unknown extras
    I am not involved with this disc

    Thanks

    Meh. You're right. Does this mean the UK's not getting it at all? (*wonders why he's asking a question as silly as that...*)

    The UK is not getting the Sony release. Metrodome has the rights in the UK not Sony. Sony only has the North American rights.

    Region free DVD players are really inexpensive. I online ordered one for about $100 (USD). The player was set for PAL equipment out of the box. I had to follow some insturctions from the vendor to get it to work with my NTSC television. Anyway, I've been enjoying Asian and Metrodome Transformers DVDs ever since.

    Anyway, I think it would be worth any UK fans money to get one to watch Sony's TFTM.

    Well I already own a region-free player, for this exact reason. But, really, that's not the point. :)  The point is that it's very annoying that we're forced to import stuff, because what we get isn't as good as what's available in the US - if we even get it at all.

    No, I'd rather stay true to the art of being a fan, and moan endlessly and impotently here instead.

    Oh, all *right* then...

    Well I guess I'll only be truly happy when I have joint residency of America and Japan, and spend alternate weeks in each country. ;-)

    While I appreciate all the extras, and love what we've got, I'd be far more happy with them addressing the single issue I've seen not only in my case, but in many others as well. When will we get a fix for the Spanish Captions turning on during the Magnus death scene? I'd love to be able to watch the wide screen version without having to stop in the midst of it to navigate the menus so I can turn off the Spanish Captions.

    Has anyone been able to get these exclusive features to work consistently?

    I was able to play the trivia game with no problem, but the web stuff is hit-and-miss so far:

    - The picture galleries worked fine.
    - The behind the scenes videos run for a few seconds, then flip over to a message telling me the DVD isn't inserted. (It is.)
    - I'm trying to do the cell phone wallpaper thing, but it's been 20 minutes, and my phone hasn't received anything yet. (It says it should arrive within 10 minutes, but may take up to 4 hours if the network is congested. I never have problems with network unavailability in my area, though.)

    Yeah, about £20 here -- supermarket ones tend to be the type that are very easy to convert to region-free, or are region-free out of the box. Most TVs are dual PAL/NTSC, too.

    It's the fact that domestic disc releases tend to be sub-standard in terms of features that people get narked about.

    The remastering's better than Rhino's "turn up the contrast and over-saturate" job, I take it?
