2005 Boards member BustaJesse was lucky enough to find a copy of the Transformers Animated: Transform and Roll Out DVD at a local comic book shop in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada before the scheduled release date of next Tuesday, June 17th. He has posted picture of the packaging as well as a picture of the DVD and insert. The insert features pictures of some of the toys and various merchandising, but the insert also advertises an upcoming Transformers Animated video game! Click the image to the left to see all of the images of the packaging, insert, and DVD!

BustaJesse also provides details of the "extras", two deleted shorts included with the DVD. Spoilers of the shorts can be seen by clicking the Discuss button.

Woot! When you get a chance (no rush) could you give a review of any extras that are on it?

It's an error. Light years are a measurment of distance, not time like the case describes.
Big Bot
They've changed the cover slightly so everything isn't at an angle, and is now the same as the UK and Australian versions.

An Animated video game should be interesting. Hopefully Activision can produce something better than last years effort.
SPLIT LIP
As long as they don't put in the stupid things like the sheilds, overly drawn-out transformations and bobbing camera crap it can't be that bad. I'm excited for it to say the least.

What the fuck is with Bulkhead's face?
Laser_Optimus
Cool. Must wait patiently to get this...
Deceptigtar
i wonder who is working on the game???
MilkManX
Nice. I am gonna nab mine at Target next week when it hits the store.
Megatronwp38
Nice I will have to get this !

Is this going to be on the season one box set? If it is I may just wait for that.

BustaJesse can probably provide more info, but from what we've heard one is styled like the old G1 TF PSAs with Prime, only instead of listening to him the kids just wanna see him transform.
Sideswipe80
Is that the game for the DS??? It's in October???
Batman
UPDATE

Okay so I got around to looking at the DVD. First of all, the new "Hasbro Entertainment" logo appears when you first put it in. It then takes you to the main menu. The background is the 5 main Autobots standing next to the list of options. There are three options which are : Play, Animated Shorts, and Set up. Play obviously plays the movie, it is all in one piece, not separated into three episodes like some worried. It is split up into scenes, so you can use your next button to skip to the next scene, but there is no chapters menu for you to select them from.

Set Up is just audio options for English and Spanish.

Now onto the one and only special feature, the animated shorts. I think these are basically deleted scenes, there are two and they play right after one another. I will now go into spoiler mode:


The first one is Prime talking to a group of kids. He keeps getting interrupted by one of the kids asking him to transform. The pesky kid is none other than Daniel Witwicky. Eventually Daniel gets all the other kids demanding Prime to transform, which he does to get them to shut up. After Prime turns back Daniel says " Where does the trailer go when you turn back into a robot?" This one was funny and I enjoyed it.

The next one is weaker, Prowl jumps over the other four Autobots daredevil style (they are in alt mode, like a stunt jump) he can't quite clear Bumblebee. He falls and BB says some smart remark which I can't remember. Prowl throws a ninja star at his face and leaves. Thats all I can remember.


Thats it for extras.
SPLIT LIP
Hehe, both sound good. The first one sounds uber funneh.

Man, so many cool things are coming out now, I hope I have enough money to buy everything.
Tim Formas
Sweet. Thanks for the pictures and confirmation of the extras!

It was the sole item on Diamond's shipping list to comic book stores this week. I assume it was meant to ship this week so that they'll have it on hand by Tuesday, but your comic book shop just put it out anyways. Which turned out in your favor and ours!

I wonder what systems it will be for...

I saw that too...

I hope they release it for other consoles, PC would be nice too.
Silent_Magnus
I hope the game isn't just shovelware.
Although since this is the first time we've heard of it and it's coming out in October it sounds like it will be.

Maybe there will be something at E3 or an event held by whoever is publishing it.
Soundwave84
eh i will have to pick this up and the season set but i am in no rush
Ops_was_a_truck
The shorts sound fun, but not worth investing in.

And 360, hopefully.
Deefuzz
If it lines up with the previous posted rumor, the game will be published by Activision.

My money is on a DS title, though I would prefer to see an Animated game on the PS3/360.

The first Animated short sounds funny, I look forward to checking them out.
jazz4ever
awesome a TFa video game and i at the "where does the trailer go?"
Batman
Yeah the second short is nothing special, but the first one was cool. It would have been nice if there was some featurettes about the concept and creation of animated, but I'm happy just to have it, besides most kids don't have any interest in extras anyway.

I must say it is nice to watch it without the commercials. I can't stand the host of the crunch or whatever the hell it is called on YTV. I have to mute the television because his voice makes me cringe. Every Saturday morning I see this guy, I die a little bit inside for kids everywhere.

Activision, licensed game, TF game, at that... good chance of it being a "pass". PS2 Armada has really been the only exception to the rule :-/

"First time on DVD"?

I hope they're talking about the shorts, cuz I coulda sworn the episode came w/ the Battle Damage Prime/Megatron 2-pack.

The 2 pack only has the first 22 minutes. This is the full 65 Min(give or take a few minutes) Pilot movie.

Gotcha, I suppose I shouldv'e watched the whole thing instead of just the first 5.

As for the video game, I'm kind of hoping for something like an action RPG. Something not too complicated but more deep than the movie games.
doomtron
transformer video games make me happy
Laser_Optimus
Hmm... mixed feelings on the video game. Frankly, if it's anything like the movie game... it'll be a big pass for me. So far the only Transformers game that was worth picking up was the PS2 Armada game.
Laser_Optimus
Blasted website... double post!!! argh...
Gurahk
Cool! I hope the Decepticons will be playable!
kenm2474
I wonder what format teh game will be for Computer or game consoles.
Nachtsider
If Blitzwing ends up a playable character, I so want an Ikaruga-style gimmick for any mission involving him, in which you have to switch between his personalities and altmodes/powers to defeat different enemies and surmount different obstacles..
