AVOID at all costs!!!,
This review is from: Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray)
If you like any special features at all do not buy this version. They are doing the same thing as Avatar. This release gets a full price but absolutely zero special features. Not so much as a trailer. They will be putting out deluxe versions toward the end of the year including a 3D combo pack, blu ray combo pack & dvd. ALL will be packed & you will kick yourself for having to buy this a second time. Many people don't care about features but if you do consider yourself forewarned. And it's not like they're giving you a cut on the price for a "movie only" release.

You don't buy a movie to watch specials features. I buy movies to watch the movie I just bought.

No, he was referring to the extra features. Usually a major release like this has lots of them, and despite what M. ONG says, lots of people enjoy watching them.
To Paramount's credit, at least they have been very clear about the fact that later this year they'll be coming out with a 3D disc that will have extra features. To their shame, the price of this bare-bones release is absurd. $45 MSRP??? People should boycott it on that basis alone.

Never said not to buy it if you want a "movie only disc". Just provided a heads up that a 3D combo AND another 2D blu ray combo pack are coming in a few months & IF YOU LIKE special features the deluxe editions will be loaded & you might want to avoid having to double dip.

According to Michael Bay (the director) the 3D version IS coming out at the end of the year. And if the version being released now doesn't have any special features, the next version will.
