It's been almost an hour since I received it, and I'm still not finished reading this monstrous Transformers DVD announcement. Damn. This sucker is going to be packed with stuff to watch -- robot porn, anyone? Anyone? Yes, I'm speaking about Michael Bay's live-action extravaganza -- and the multiple DVDs will arrive on shelves this October 16. I'm going to copy and paste the full specs for you after the jump, but I'll get the ball rolling by saying there's a lot more here than meets the eye. So here's what you're looking at: 1) A single disc featuring (I assume) the theatrical version of the film 2) A Special Edition two-disc set featuring stuff I'll get to in a minute, and 3) a Special Edition HD-DVD two-disc set featuring most of the stuff found in the other two-disc set, except with some added HD-DVD goodies.

Essentially, the two-disc sets will include tons of must-hear commentary from Michael Bay -- in which the director will most likely talk about how hot he is, how hot the movie is and how hot you are for watching his hot movie. Apart from that, viewers will also be able to check out a bunch of special features, including a chat with Steven Spielberg, lots of early concept art, the casting process, military training, and a piece on "the senior officials from the Department of Defense and Air Force who consulted on the film ..." Ya know, it's probably best to find out what our government would do in the event giant f**king robots actually did invade our planet. But that's just the tip of the iceberg -- we're looking at tons more special features, as well as (on the HD-DVD) pretty cool text-based behind-the-scenes background information that you can watch during the feature. Basically, if you're looking for something to do for three days, the Transformers DVD has got you covered. Check out the complete specs for all DVDs after the jump, and mark October 16 down on your calendar ... if you want to live. Oh wait, wrong robot movie. Carry on ...
