    Watched the movie on a 1080p 120Hz TV recently. Looks simply amazing. I have a 1080i TV and it still looks amazing on that. But after seeing it on the 120hz TV, I felt like I was watching live performers.

    Got it for $9 on Black Friday, so when you take the $10 rebate into account, I got it for FREE! Only reason I bought it was I like some of the specials that were not on the single DVD release. I wish more companies would give an incentive for current DVD owners to upgrade. Makes the transition to BluRay a tad nicer in this horrific economy that's only gonna tank closer to a true depression.

    Anytime.

    Also, a few weeks ago, I got my $10 rebate for owning both the DVD and Blu-Ray of Transformers. Took about 5 weeks or so to arrive.

    I recently purchased the Blu-ray at Bestbuy for 10 dollars during Black Friday!

    Joe does that rebate work for the having the HD-DVD version?

    I'm not sure. It would say on the promotion slip inside the Blu-Ray case.

    Thank you for beating me to the context.

    This is shameless promotionalism, which I can expect from Paramount and Hasbro, but an independent journalism acticle should have done better.

    Impressive. This is a must own BluRay for anyone who has a player.

    Does not apply to HD-DVD release, only the standard DVD release. My friend had the Xbox HDDVD player and TF, just bought a BluRay on Black Friday, and bought Transformers too. He called Paramount Home Video customer service (or whatever number is on the rebate form) about the HD-DVD, and they said nope. No problem for him, tho, coz he works at Blockbuster, and just snipped a POP barcode off of a rental box (naughty naughty)!

    My girlfriend and I were at Circuit City this weekend and I saw TF running on one of those TVs... I felt like a caveman who was brought to the future and was seeing it unfold before my primordial eyes. I was blown away. I want a TV like this. Are they expensive?

    Also, I wonder if somewhere in Paramounts offices they are wondering how much sooner they would have reaped these sales had they not sold out and supported only one format from the start... That is... everyone who wanted it on bluray still bought it, but it would have affected their sales for the release of the movie.

    Given the garbage truck that backed up to the Paramount CEO's desk and dumped a heap of cash to support HDDVD, I don't think Paramount's regretting the choice one bit.

    Well that's exactly what I am wondering. IF the lump of cash put out was greater than the sales would have been for that part of the year. Not overall, because overall, they got the cash for the HD exclusive plus the Bluray Sales later. I am just referring to the movie launch paying off more than the garbage bag.

    I think this is the reason why it's number 2 all of a sudden as I also purchased it for $10 at Best buy on Friday.
