    Anyone else notice the Easter egg in the UPC code? B1270 S3C07. That's kinda clever.

    I wonder if in 30 years time we’re gonna use this tape and watch the bumblebee movie again like the 86 film. That’d be weird.

    VHS promotional copy so if they send that to people without a VCR how do we know it is the movie? Has it been send to at least one with a VCR since it's still 1-4.
    But still funny

    B127 = Bumblebee
    SEC07 = Sector 7

    That's less of a giveaway, and more of an act of terror.

    Now just need a Walkman to listen to the soundtrack if it was released on tape and I'm all set. Am I old? Maybe but this was a treat to watch. Props to the marketing department on this one.

    Don't play games with me. I'd buy the ever loving hell out of a VHS copy.

    Is it an April Fools joke saying that the movie is on Blu-ray today?

    got a feeling it's a blank. the record tab is still in. a factorytaped movie would be missing it to "prevent" erasure…(bit of tape would fix that anyway…:p )

    That's a really good point---and actually, a factory one wouldn't even have ever had that tab in the first place---they weren't broken off, it was just a perfect smooth-edged gap where it would go. Only "blank" tapes came with a tab, to be broken off at home.
