I am going to buy this, but I will wait until the time it is available for "the best deal" for purchasing it. :D

You know... I haven't seen it, and I don't even care if after I watch it I decide it was the worst thing ever... Based on how much I've enjoyed the first movie, I'll gladly buy this one day one.

It will be interesting to see how many folks stand in line late Monday night for the Midnight Madness $3 off promotion on the Transformers 2 Blu Ray (and $2 DVD)....only 1 store in the area is having this promotion here.

Tuesday morning at 12:01am is mighty early to save 3 bucks...:D:lol:

Not me. I'm happy enough with the $3 off coupon from Papa John's. Definitely worth the other $3 to get more sleep! I like me some sleep! :)

Yup....I got that coupon as well and plan to use it...

In doing some further research...it appears all Best Buy locations will honor the "early bird" price for the first 2 hours they are open Tuesday (tomorrow), and I was also told Walmart will price match during that time as well.

Happy shopping! :D

Still on the fence myself... I liked the movie but I was disappointed with the IMAX presentation. There was too much to look at. I probably will pick this up at some point, perhaps not right away.

I'm going to get the "standard" version... then wait and see what people say about Wal-Mart's "special" IMAX version... and then if that becomes super-cheap I'll get it next year.

I picked up WalMart's IMAX edition BD this afternoon for $19.96...un-advertised in store! I'll be watching this one tonight for sure!

I rented it from Blockbuster. What I've watched so far looks and sound great on my PS3

Well... I lied. I ended up getting the Wal-Mart IMAX version today because I couldn't pass it up at the price.

For some reason, locally the Blu ray was marked for $19.96 BUT rang up at $14.25... so after Papa John's $3 off coupon, it was barely over $12 even with tax for the Blu ray... so I had to do it.

I'm trying to cut expenses; I'm only buying Blu-Rays when I'm absolutely sure it'll be something I want to watch again and again so I was planning on getting it from NetFlix and watching before deciding on whether to buy.

Unfortunately, NetFlix has it listed as having a "very long wait."

Last night I watched the first Transformers and tonight will be watching the new one on Blu-Ray that should arrive at my door from Amazon.

Haven't seen it yet so it should be a good night at the Blount home theater. :)

Watched last night...

Being honest... the story wasn't as good as the first movie and it did feel a little long while watching it... but still well worth the watch, and the video was great (especially the IMAX scenes).

WOW - what a great viewing!

It also didn't hurt that my wife used the $3 coupon from Papa John's, along with the one-day discounted price at Wally World - geez - the Blu Ray for $13.00 - what a great deal on a really neat movie.

The audio and video on this are amazing.

Yes, for some reason, there's a few WalMarts around the country that have it at $14.25. Unfortunately, none in my area.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I picked up the Wal-Mart version today as well and just watched it.

Actually very little of the movie (about 10 or 15 minutes) was in "big screen". Kind of disappointing actually.

I saw the movie in IMAX and it was the same way. I actually thought the movie suffered from the "big screen" treatment since I didn't know where to look. Other than seeing Optimus at 100% size I don't think my money was well spent.

I look forward to seeing the Blu-ray on a reasonable size screen so I can appreciate the cinematography.
