Beginning today, fans can log onto and vote for their favorite clip from TRANSFORMERS: The Movie.  Fans will be able to cast their vote all week, choosing among a selection of memorable scenes from the animated classic.  The winning scene will be reveled Tuesday, August 8th – exactly 20 years to day of the original theatrical release of TRANSFORMERS: The Movie.

The August 8th anniversary date marks the first in a series of “TF Tuesdays” where, every Tuesday, new information will be posted on  Fans will be able to keep tabs on all of the happenings with this special DVD, including details about the exclusive footage and interviews and other spectacular materials that will be included on this title.

Sony BMG Home Entertainment is expanding the DVD’s collectibility to the packaging itself.  The company has commissioned fan-favorite artist Don Figueroa to create the imagery for a special “transforming” cover.

Iornhides death wasn't an option. Bummer. I liked him, but that was a cool way to kill him.

It was a shame not to have any of the other autobots fight like Gears, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Hound, Jetfire, and etc.

So what did you tell the guys at Sony BMG? What is YOUR favorite scene?

I thought it might be a tough decision, but then it hit me! No question about it, my favorite is the scene where Megatron, Thundercracker, Skywarp and the various insecticon drones are reformatted as Galvatron, Cyclonus, Scourge and the Sweeps. For one thing, it's Unicron at his best. For another the Megatron/Unicron dialog is off the charts awesome. I think of how many times I've quoted or heard it quoted in my life!

My bros and I will be sitting around talking about something relaxed and casual. Then out of nowhere, with the slightest disagreement of opinion you can bust loose w/ your best Orsen Wells, "NO!!!!!!!! THE POINT IS YOU ARE A FOOL! YOU BELONG TO ME, NOW!" and everyone there knows exactly what you're talking about. :)

The music, the dialog, the visuals... that whole scene kicks major skid plate! ;)
