    No fan commentary? No commercials?

    Oh well.

    Since I mentioned earlier in the thread I would do a shout out for DFW Alamo showing, I am doing so now. It is not, however, the new transfer. It is a 35mm print which honestly I prefer for the theaters anyway.

    Still sad that despite a 4K scan being done for this, they aren't putting out a 4K UHD release of this. Maybe something they'll put out as the new live action movie is about to hit theaters, but was hoping for something sooner. :p

    I did a double-take when I saw your signature. :D 

    It would be cool if this DVD had the alleged bonus footage of the Autobots off-screen deaths, plus some mention of the bots that mysteriously didn't make it to the next season. It would also be cool if it had footage of Ultra Magnus being quartered by the Sweeps instead of falling apart and exploding. Either way, I'll be picking it up as the only DVD I have is the original release, long before Blu-ray was even invented.

    Thanks, especially for the info on what's NOT included. I'll still get this though.

    Same here, oh well. I'll keep the previous DVD(s)

    It would, of course, be possible for someone with a BD-RW and the DVD to rip the Blu-Ray remaster, mux in the fan commentary, and burn a custom BD-R for personal use.

    Just out of curiosity, has anyone heard if anyone will be re-releasing the soundtrack to coincide with this the way they did the last DVD release?

    Not sure if the original 1986 songs/score soundtrack will be re-issued?

    The music score by DiCola was released this year by Intrada:

    TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE, THE (SCORE CD)

    Man, if they ever released the OST and/or DiCola score in 24-bit/96khz 5.1/7.1 Blu-ray I'd probably poop myself a little.

    I figured I'd need to keep my Madman Blu Ray, if nothing else to have Scramble City with audio. I think it's dumb that they're making a featurette just about the crappy new cover art. I guess this is what happens when Livio is buddies with Brian Ward.

    When they say it's a digital download, will that be both aspect ratios, I want the full 4:3 version in digital. Also, does that mean it has to be downloaded to a hard drive to watch or in the cloud like iTunes or flixter? Thanks!

    It will most likely be a Vudu code that is good on vudu, flixter, google movies, etc.

    Dunno about aspect ratio, but if you email shout factory they'll likely tell you.
