The Transformers: The Movie is a 1986 American animated film based on the animated TV series by the same name. It was released in North America on August 8, 1986.  Despite being a box office failure on its original release in the movie theaters of the United States it became a cult film. This movie is a favorite of mine and I still keep in my collection copies of most of its many releases in the different home video formats that have been popular thru the years. I am using this post to share this particular area of my movie collection with you.

Let’s go back in time to the early 90’s because it was at that time that I got my first copy of this movie ever. It is a VHS copy released by Avid Home Entertainment, recorded at SLP speed. I bought it at a Woolworth Department Store in Puerto Rico.

Next we have this VHS edition of the movie by Kid Rhino Home Video, originally released on October 5, 1999.img_4797



The Transformers: The Movie was released for the first time on DVD as a  Special Collector’s Edition on November 7, 2000 and here is my copy. Check the 2nd photo for a list of the DVD special features.




I also own a copy of the 20th Anniversary Special Edition DVD, originally released on November 7, 2006. You will notice that this release includes both widescreen and fullscreen versions and way more extras than the previous release.



Finally here is the 30th Anniversary edition of the movie which was released in both Bluray (for the 1st time) and DVD formats on September 13, 2016.
