A couple of weeks ago a brand new Transformers movie boxset came out. Since I am a massive Transformers fan I just had to pick it up. I have to say that this is a really cool set. It is a collection of 7 Blu-Ray discs and comes with tons of extras! The most distinctive thing about this set though is that it comes in a really awesome collectors set. I grabbed a bunch of pictures of it so check em out after the jump.
So this set is essentially a big silver cardboard box. It is shaped like a giant triangle that says TF on both sides. The thing I was most worried about when I got it was how the build quality was going to be and while I wish there was more metal there but it is still very well built and looks really cool on my shelf.
Right on top of the box is a metal plate that unsurprisingly says Transformers. It was a nice touch on top but it does make me wish the rest of the set was built like this instead of cardboard.
The sides both have this really cool art of Optimus and Megatron printed on it. The metallic finish makes it a little hard to make out in the wrong light but it is still a nice touch overall.
So this thing sits on a little stand that props it all up. The stand and the sides of the big box both have magnets on it so it keeps everything balanced and even on the stand.
So to open this thing up you lay it down on the tap and flip the sides down. 3 of the sides laid out together hold all the dvds.
So the far side houses a special display that contains a plaque that is supposedly signed by Michael Bay but I assume it is just one of those reprinted autographs. It also has a film strip from one of the movies. It is a nice little add on for the more hardcore fans that would be buying this set.
This really was a great set. I was hesitant about ordering it but I am really happy I did. It looks great and now I have all three movies on Blu-Ray. If you are a big fan of Transformers I strongly recommend this set and thankfully it is still in stock on Amazon for $90.
