It’s hard to believe 30 years have passed since the release of the original Transformers movie (The only good one, some might argue… I will argue). Shout Factory is finally releasing a remastered Blu-ray version in September. There will be a special metal case edition as well as one in the normal clam shell packaging.
Transformers the Movie is not the best animated flick out there, but as a whole it is an achievement of hand drawn animation that is second to none. Essentially a 1 hour 30 minute toy commercial, this flick was simply a medium to kill off (quite literally) a large portion of the Transformers toy line in order to introduce new product to refresh Hasbro’s line. Some of the deaths, one in particular, actually angered parents after they were forced to explain the concept to their weeping children.
