On the heels of the live action version being released next year the 20th anniversary of the original movie is packed full of some new material and storyboards not released before with concept art for the movie that hasn't been seen until now or at least by the fans.

For the first time EVER a widescreen format of the movie.

* (16x9) Theatrical Widescreen Version
* Autobot Matrix of Knowledge (full-length movie featuring fun facts and trivia)
* Commentary with Nelson Shin (Director), Flint Dille (Story Consultant) and Sue Blu (Voice of Arcee)
* Fan Commentary
* Original Theatrical Trailer and TV Spots
* Cinex and Credit Test (interesting to watch)
* Photo Gallery (really interesting to look at}

Features Disc Two:

* All-New Featurettes: "Death of Optimus Prime", "Cast and Characters" and "TRANSFORMERS Q&A" with Nelson Shin (Director), Tom Griffin (Producer), Joe Bacal (Producer), Flint Dille (Story Consultant) and Sue Blu (Voice of Arcee)
* Promotional Trailer with Commentary
* Test, Deleted/Alternative Footage with Commentary
* Animated Storyboards
* US and Japanese Toy Commercials
* DVD-ROM Link to Exclusive Content

Review of Disc One:

Ok, I haven't even made it to Disc two yet. They packed this release FULL and most places on the internet have if for about 12.00 plus shipping or free shipping. Wally (Wal-Mart) world has it for 14.95. REALLY good deal for two disc set of anything even it is over 20 years old now. The commentary from Sue Blu(voice of Arcee) and the two others is pretty good. The Fan commentary is AWESOME as they point out thing that slightly flaw the movie but also make it more interesting and unique. So far it was well worth every penny to grab this release. If you are stil a Transformers the orginal series, this two disc collection is for you grab.

If you want pick up the anniversary toy, Optimus Prime, for about $70 too then it will make the experience complete.

I think about covered everything and if I time I'll try to ammend this post and put my thoughts on disc two without spoiling it for you.

***EDIT***
I just watched the second disc bonus features. The three new featurettes about the movie with people who worked on it and produced it. They were awesome plus some the Japanese commercial features were totally great see.

There are a few more features plus easter eggs that are on the DVD. It has some kind of interactive DVD-Rom feature that if you put it in there is still more content. I guess something linked to the web like most newer stuff nowadays. Anyways, STILL an total worth while grab even though it totally is starting to make me feel old.

Circuit City is advertising the set for $12.99. But alas, my local CC was sold out as of 4pm yesterday.

I am DYING to get my hands on this, but I don't have time to watch until the weekend. As long as I can pick it up while it it's still on sale somewhere I'll be happy.

That Optimus toy is NIIIICE, too, but a bit too far out of my justifiable price range for a toy.

I saw this out of the blue sitting on the New Releases shelf at Future Shop the same day Beverly Hills 90210 Season 1 came out (I am not admitting to anything) and had to pick it up.

So far I've watched every part of disk 1 and really enjoyed it. I think I have the original DVD release somewhere, but for the price, I couldn't turn this down, and with the commentaries alone it was worth the price.

I would have liked to have had more of the voice actors as the director's commentary tends to be interrupting interesting stories to say "We used a lot of colors in the background. It has a lot of colors..." but I understand that with some that is unfortunately not possible.

Still, great buy for the price.

A local bar here in Vancouver had a DVD release party of sorts last weekend to celebrate the movie's 20th anniverary and DVD rerelease....I attended it, and it was a LOT of fun. The general consensus of the crowd was that it's a must buy. I'll probably pick it up on Friday.

I hate to tell you this, but along with Bev90210, they released the first season of MELROSE PLACE to go with it.

...oh yeah, and the first two seasons of BAYWATCH, which is pretty much a must buy for any living, breathing male.

I recently read something about the new live action movie that made me want to puke:


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Sam (Spike in the cartoons) finds an energon cube and then puts it up to sell on eBay.


It makes me long for the days of Beast Wars.

Correction: the first two SYNDICATED seasons of "Baywatch." I am again denied the NBC episodes!

(They're supposed to be out in dribs & drabs as "bonus" material in the other season sets. No thanks! I'm on a budget here!)
