Written by Big Bot on June 26, 2008 | Animated,DVD,News,Paramount | Tags: , ,

Paramount haven’t been kind to the UK. They delayed the Energon DVDs, delayed the Transformers movie by a month, delayed the Movie DVD and HD DVD, delayed the two Animated DVDs due out this year and are now pricing the Animated series DVDs at weird prices.

The RRP for Transformers: Animated Transform and Roll Out DVD (68 minutes) has been set at £12.99, but can be found for £8.99 at most online retailers. The Animated Season One DVD, containing 13 episodes, only has a RRP of £9.99, but has a length of roughly 280 minutes, or 4 times as long.

On the good news for Paramount, they are only releasing the Transformers movie on Blu-ray in the UK 6 days after North America, on 8th September. That’s more like it.
