Transformers – The Movie turns 30 years old with 4k re-issue

It’s been three decades since Transformers – The Movie, and Shout Factory is celebrating with a blu ray release you won’t want to miss.

One shall stand…

Chances are that, if you saw Transformers in theaters, it scarred you just a bit. One of the biggest heroes in the 80s wasOptimus Prime after all, and his death was just a tad rattling for a kid back then. Of course, comics and cartoons being what they are, he didn’t stay dead, but that’s besides the point.

The movie that spun out of the cartoons wasn’t just emotionally draining either; it was damn good too. Unlike most of the standalone episodes from the show that it’s based on, the movie version of Transformers stands up even today. No, it’s not perfect, but it’s still got it where it counts.

And to that point, it’s got a few improvements too, fresh from the guys and gals at Shout Factory.

Transformers goes 4k

If you’re a Transformers fans and you have a 4k TV, then you’re probably going to want to see this. Not just settling for blu ray for this re-release, Transformers – The Movie is going all the way to 4k land.
