Transformers: Dark of the Moon is set to return to Earth in a new four-disc Ultimate Edition on Blu-ray 3D, and Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack with UltraViolet and a Digital Copy.

There will also be a seven-disc limited collector’s edition Blu-ray of all three films for a limited time in a spectacular deluxe package including a plaque of movie images signed by director Michael Bay.
 
A must-own film for every home media collection, Transformers: Dark of the Moon features “jaw-droopingly amazing 3D” (Harry Knowles, AintItCool.com) and fan-favorite characters Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, and Sam Witwicky amidst bigger and more spectacular action in an adventure that surpassed its predecessors to earn over $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office.

Bursting with nearly four hours of sensational behind-the-scenes footage, cast and crew interviews and more, the Transformers: Dark of the Moon Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD combo pack delivers blockbuster entertainment. 

In a press release, Bay stated: “This Blu-ray 3D of Dark of the Moon will blow you away.  If you’ve been waiting for the right time to get a 3D television, this is it. For fans who’ve been waiting patiently to bring Dark of the Moon home, this Ultimate Edition release delivers the goods.”

Dark of the Moon and the four-disc Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD combo pack takes fans behind-the-scenes, across the U.S. and into the far reaches of space for a fully immersive entertainment experience. 

The set includes a nearly two-hour documentary about the making of the film, which follows the cast and crew around the world, reveals the secrets behind the breathtaking stunts, including more footage of the amazing “birdmen,” and documents the film’s progress all the way through its triumphant release.

Plus, additional features show how Chicago was transformed into the movie’s biggest action set, offer a look inside NASA, unveil artists’ renderings of the Autobots and Decepticons and much, much more. The combo pack will also be enabled with UltraViolet, a new way to collect, access and enjoy movies. 

With UltraViolet, consumers can add movies to their digital collection in the cloud, and then stream or download them – safely and securely – to a variety of devices.
