Does this image seem weird to you? Well it should, because as we all know Transformers (2007) wasn't released on Blu-ray. Thanks to the good people over at the Blu-ray.com forums  for exposing this mistake made buy Woolworth stores over in the UK. Apparently they were putting Transformers (2007) HD-DVDs in Blu-ray cases.

For a second, I thought someone made a bootlegged copy, converted it to Blu-ray, and made the store think it was real.

But now that I think about it, that is highly unlikely. About as unlikely as the HM/MF/V Singapore dubs being aired in the U.S.

OH MY GOD I CANNOT BELIEVE WAT I HAVE JUST SEEN. This was the first place that i could think of posting this so im sorry about taking advantage of this commenting feature. I just came back from walgreens you would never guess wat i saw... There were these toys there that Transforbmable motor-somethings.... and right there was THE FULL SUPERION SET IN ONE BOX-- NO AUTOBOT INISGNIAS OR ANYTHING, EXACTLY LIKE THE ORIGINAL G1 MODELS, AND ON TOP OF THAT THERE WAS DEVASTATOR AGAIN COMPLETE AND WITHOUT THE PROPER INSIGNIAS... feedback? and by the way coolo news

Those have actually been around for a while. They're knock offs and not real high quality ones either. However, they are decent display peices and fairly cheap. I have the Devasator set. It's ok.
Sabrblade said,  - 2007-12-22 15:42:37
Yeah, they're called MotorBots or something. They've got Superion, Devastator, Defensor, and Ruination (not Bruticus). How ever, all the decals are different from the G1 figures, the colors are messed up on some of them, and they reused packaging from from some past knock-offs. If i were you, I'd stay away from them (unless you want to kitbash them by repainting them and getting new labels from Reprolabels.com).

EDIT: They're also missing some weapons
Autobutt said,  - 2007-12-22 21:31:45
yea Saborblade, thats wat i was thinkin... i was thinkin about going back there and getting both Superion and Devastator but i may have to buy a couple(a lot) of new stickers...

You learn something new every day. I thought woolworths was outta business. Also, you can't be too mad at bootleggers. The greatest praise is copy. Think about it. Takara bootlegged because they didn't get permission from the auto and gun and jet manufacturers to make the toys.

Off topic: Oh man I can not wait till Christmas no lounger!!!!!! All the cool little collectibles and toys and little candy stuff I shall get. Not that items are the true meaning of Christmas, it is the birth of our savior. ^_^ Yo fellow fans! One thing I shall be getting will be a new cam corder, because in the middle of doing a movie review I dropped it and was nagged to death by my mom. NOT! I will get a better one but same SD memory cards for it.

Also guys, can't wait until the new animated premiere! To bad the figs don't get released till mid 2008. Also, what do you guys/girls think of those Walmart exclusive Cybertron movie repaints? Please respond.
Blasten Blaster said,  - 2007-12-24 02:45:16
One I dont think saying "the birth of our savior" is ok in public (or online) becuase there are non-crhistian people who can be offended, like where work instead of saying "merry x-mas" we can only say "happy holidays" if we are gonna use it as a parting comment. So you have to be careful about saying things like that or you could really tick someone off and make them hate you.

To answer your question about the Wal-mart exclusives I have a nother question. Why Wal-mart? It's so over rated most people I know hate it cause It's over crowded and in my opinion not that great when compared to Target or K-mart. But then again thats just me. I'm only going in one to bet the "Big Daddy" (Downshift) character.

All I want for Christmas the most are the Titanium figs of Rodimus Prime, Scourge, Cheetor, G1 Magnus, The Fallen, and the Galaxy Force version of GC-03 Vector Prime (not the yellow redeco), and Cybertron Soundwave.

However, i'll be lucky if i even get one for Christmas. My family thinks I'm too old to be buying/playing/collecting "toys". And when I compare myself to fans much older than me, they respond in ways make it a lose/lose situation for me. Even my younger siblings think I'm too old for "toys", I'm like the only one in the family who likes TFs. My older bro used to like BW, but he got out of it when BM came.

So I'm pretty much alone in this part of the fandom I'm stuck in.

I never said I've given up, Ty. I haven't stopped getin' them. I''ve managed to find some way to get every movie figure I've wanted, all 20 of them. It's only the above-mentioned figures that I might have trouble with.

Also, to answer your question, the only Allspark Power figures I want are Landmine, Stockade, and Incinerator. So, I'm not too crazy about the Wal-Mart repaints.

Dont ever stop, I think they're just angry that you're so much cooler than them for buying/playing/collecting Tranformers. But Stockade looks to dumb for me to get but I'm deffinently getting the other two. Heck I might get doubles of them just for their vehical modes.

It doesn't look like I'm gonna stop, B B. But, after I get the last 3 movie figs I want, I'm gonna search for some KOs I've been eyeing. Then I'll take a break from TFs and get some of the new Digimon Data Squad toys that should come out soon. then i'll get back to TFs when the TF:A toys come out.

Wow, I all most boght one till I saw the wall mart exclusive. Man was that junk.
lordmegamusprime said,  - 2007-12-24 15:48:07
about the repaints they suck. hasbro is so low on ideas they have to repaint everything and the whole exclusive thing is getting old too. they need to hire people like jin saotome for there transfomer design department. as for the KO'S every year K-MART has them in there easter baskets and they can easily be found at many drug stores and sometime at kb toys or toys r us

I see there's a lot of discussion about this topic here. No going dangerously off topic at all. No, not at all. *obvious sarcasm*

Seriously, stay on course, guys. We're not here to discuss bootleg Transformers, we're here to discuss the false Blu-Ray Transformers.
Sabrblade said,  - 2007-12-24 20:20:12
Now that I think about it, you're right Darkton. I'm the only one who's said anything related to the topic.

But think about this, Darkton. There's really not much to comment about the Blu-ray fake. It's pretty much an open-and-shut case. So instead, people use the liberty to comment about other TF-related stuff.

Though, it might be partially my fault for starting the off-topicness. I mentioned the word "bootleg" and the following comment has to do with that instead of the topic.
Blasten Blaster said,  - 2007-12-24 22:25:53
actually the "bootleg" stuff is realated just read the first comment posted
Tyscream said,  - 2007-12-25 04:37:26
Happy holidays fellow fans!

Blasten Blaster said,  - 2007-12-25 18:03:23

Tyscream said,  - 2007-12-26 16:10:32
