Not that i need any reason to get excited about Transformers but the much loved 80’s robotic foreigners have finally arrived on Blu Ray. With voice acting from the likes of the legend Leonard Nimoy, Orson Welles (Citizen Kane) and Music from the likes of Weird Al Yankovic, What is not to be loved?

The movie has also been remastered and is included in the disc as the ‘Remastered Theatrical Wide Screen Edition’.  You also get the ‘Full Screen Edition’ amongst other things like the original trailer, TV spots, Voice actor biographies, Commentary features and extras, Animated storyboards, Deleted scenes and also a bonus episode of Transformers: Beast Wars. There is still even more on the disc that nostalgic’s out there will no doubt enjoy, Overall I think that the movie is best viewed whilst eating a big bowl of the most sugar filled cereal out there and about 10 inches away from the screen, Or is that just me then?

The release is obviously to coincide with the second live action movie adaptation of Transformers but for me the animation is still king and other childhood fans will love this new version, But be warned you probably wont need this if you have already purchased the 20th anniversary DVD edition.

Just so fun below is the Original trailer for ‘Transformers: The movie 1986’
