    If this has been posted i'm sorry but looks like the 86 transformers film has been removed from the digital sites vudu, amazon prime, and google play. (not sure about iTunes)

    It's been removed from all the sites at once! If you own it you still will keep it (they won't remove it) but you can't buy it if you don't.

    Not sure why but the pound puppies 80s movie was also removed at the same time.

    Good thing I got my vudu copy of transformers. What do you guys think of this?

    I’m an old fuddy duddy and haven’t gotten into digital yet. So this won’t really affect me. I have it on blu ray and dvd so I’m good. But it sucks for those of you who only do digital.

    I buy dvd also but I have the digital codes so why not use them. Plus I use the disk to digital program that lets me buy vudu movies for $2. I did break down and buy transformers the movie and a few 80s cartoon episodes like pole position however. Otherwise I only get films from the codes in the dvds and blu-rays and the disk to digital.(you scan the dvds you own and can buy the digital code for $2 from vudu)

    It's not on iTunes either. Glad I purchased mine on Vudu very soon after it first went up.

    Yeah, I only buy digitally when (whatever it may be) can't be purchased otherwise.

    I was going to rent Blade Runner 2049 yesterday and the renting option disappeared too. And that one I remember being available a day before. I wonder what's happening and if it's related at all.

    Must be nice to have endless space for physical things. Sure one dvd doesn’t take up much space but tens of dvds, videogames, an extensive comic book and toy collection?

    Gotta go digital where you can imo.

    This is probably related to the Playster agreement signed last year.

    Damn. I have the bluray. Should have double dipped and grabbed digital while I could.

    Ah well, I'm sure it will be back.

    Has anyone noticed the Prime Trilogy has been removed from Amazon, Youtube and every other site I can think of? Does anyone know where to find it?

    There was a version a couple of years ago that had the digital download as part of the set, and I believe it's a DRM-free version. Last I checked I think they are still around online in a few places.

    The removal of all of this stuff at once makes me wonder if Hasbro is planning to sign one of the awful exclusivity deals with just one streaming service.

    That's completely likely, and that would really suck.

    Good point. Much like what 'DC is doing forming their own streaming service, Hasbro might just do the same.
    Looks like the way of the streaming world now.

    Hasbro has it's own streaming service. You can get it on roku.
