    Hey all

    The new movie is out today in the UK. Play have a UK exclusive metal case

    It is the 2 disc version in a well made black metal case. It has the Autobot Protect emobossed on the front and the Decepticon Destroy on the back

    The discs are IDENTICAL to the US versions, sames extras, menus and easter eggs. The discs even look the same. Only change is a few more language options.

    The comic is a slightly modified version of the Target comic

    The Target excluisve Prime Transforming case IS available in the UK from HMV only

    (The case is dark black, my lighting makes it appear lighter)

    How is the comic modified from the Target DVD version?

    There is also the Wal-Mart animated prequel at Asda.

    Also, Paramount have technically broken the law by selling the DVD without the BBFC logo on the front of the case. I'm glad they did, it makes the case look a lot better.

    Yeah I saw that at FYE in Newport News, Viriginia during my time there for AIT. I had already bought my special edition copy so when I saw it I was like hell, it was like the same price as the special edition.

    That's called a Steelbook, and it's not a exclusive to the UK, if that's what you mean. I picked up my Australian release in the same case over a month ago.

    ok..someone should check to see if it's really double sided..only because the US versions of the tin-case at Suncoast/FYE had two SEPERATE tins...one with the Autobot and the other was a Decepticon.....so if you wanted both, you had to buy two 2-disc SE tins.....

    100% its two sided, front Autobot, back Decepticon.
    It was advertised as UK exclusive so it must be different somehow!

    Actually it is a Play.com exclusive in the UK. Just as the Optimus Prime transforming packaging is an HMV exclusive in the UK. Spain have already got the Steelbook package with comic last month.

    I brought the standard 2 disc DVD set from (Woollies) and would you believe it hardly a single HD-DVD or Bluray disc was sold during the morning to late afternoon, that doesn’t surprise me at all.

    I got mine through the post yesterday and am very happy with it, but looking at play.com it seems to have vanished, it must've been very limited! :)
