Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

I'll likely get the BD from Target with the Enterprise model.

Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

I got the two disc DVD today. Allegedly it came in a HMV exclusive box but wasn't that much different from the standard one.

3 Disc Blu-Ray, and I don't even own a player or HDTV yet. I'll have a Blu-Ray HTIB and HDTV by Christmas.

Yeah, I was buying BDs almost a full year before I had an HDTV.

No, I was being serious, how many versions are there?

I'm hearing steel box, and mini Enterprise.

Or do you mean blu ray or DVD?
In the U.S. there are versions:

1) Single Disc DVD version in standard case
2) Double Disc DVD version in standard case.
3) Single Disc Blu-ray in standard case.
4) 3 Disc Blu-ray in standard case.
5) 3 Disc Blu-ray in Enterprise case.
6) 3 Disc Blu-ray in steel case.

That's all I can think of, and I may be wrong on one or two of those, but I can't seem to find all the information together.

I'll add to your list:

1) Single Disc DVD version in standard case
2) Double Disc DVD version in standard case.
3) Double Disc DVD in plastic Enterprise case (Target).
4) 3 Disc Blu-ray in standard case.
5) 3 Disc Blu-ray in plastic Enterprise case (Target).
6) 3 Disc Blu-ray w/ metal Enterprise sculpture (Amazon).
7) 3 Disc Blu-ray in steelbook case (FYE).
8) 3 Disc Blu-ray with badges (Best Buy)

Geez! Does anyone remember this many choices for any other movie that's been released?

Transformers 2 had the same amount. The only difference was that Amazon didn't have an exclusive, but Walmart had an IMAX edition.

Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

Stupid question alert!!

Does the BD 3-disc set (or any BD set) come with a standard DVD version of the film? I know it has the digital version but I don't have a BD player yet and wish to be able to view it on my standard DVD player in both my home and my van. If it doesn't, I'm stuck buying the cheapo $10 single DVD version until I can afford a BD player.

Please advise...

ROJO, thanks! Walmart had an IMAX edition? I didn't know the general public even had the capability to play an IMAX edition on home tvs.

I'm getting the basic $10 version until I can afford a BD player and a bigger HD set (using a 22" monitor right now that displays in 1080p).

Well, the IMAX version of the film was about a minute or so longer and had a few sequences in IMAX (parts of the forest battle and the desert battle, and possibly more). So the Walmart edition was this longer cut that switched back and forth to the fuller frame of the IMAX sequences.

It's like how the home video release of "The Dark Knight" had the IMAX scenes. It's just that for "Transformers 2" they decided to make it a Walmart exclusive.
