Default No One buy the new transformers unitil 3d release!!!

I have a vizio 55 inch 1080p led 3d smart tv I bought in 2011
Also just bought a sony xbr x900a 65inch 3d 4k uhdTV this year, I also bought the fmp-x10

We neef more content to support these expensive tv's we bought. 3d is really popular in theaters and 3d tech as far home TV's is too new to give up on or to start limiting content.

If there was a theater that released a movie in 3d (transformers) then there should be a home release of what we saw in theaters.

What if people bought 3d 4k tv's and 3d smart Tv's based of seeing transfotmers 4 3d and anticipated a blue-ray 3d version?
If your not going to release a home version in 3d then dont release a 3d version in theaters. We also need a 4k version of this for all who shelled out 3-4 grand for uhd tv's.

If we come together we can send a message, we dictate what the trends are but sometimes corporate does things for a money grab at our expense.

So im asking all 3d tv and 4k uhd tv owners to cone together and not support transformers: age of extinction until a 3d blue ray release, if they dont release a 3d blue ray then dont buy it. We can send a message if we stand together and not give them our money.

Even if only 20,000 of us do this thats 20,000x 24$ blue ray disc=thats almost a half million loss in sales, I bet it only cost a fraction of that to make a 3d conversion probably less then 100k

If we dont stop this now you might see no home 3d versions of gardians of the galxy, hercules, maybe edge of tomarrow which were really incredible in 3d

You don't even have to ask me. I only buy what I want when it's released. After YEARS of having this hobby, I have learned that if the studios don't release what I want at an affordable price, I don't buy it. Period. If studios don't want to give us 3D BDs here in the US when they do so in other parts of the world, then I have two options: Buy Region Free from out of the country (usually more expensive and I've only done it once with Frozen 3D) or not buy at all. I don't consider 3D streaming, renting or even downloading to own an option. Those are much inferior products to an actual 3D BD.

I also didn't allow the 3D hardware manufacture exclusives to keep me from owning those BDs (I won't get into how I became an owner of those titles.) But, they eventually were released and I eventually purchased every single one of them.

In summary, I have been doing what you suggest since 3D BDs came out.

Sorry OP, but it's taking a lot of effort on my part to suppress the grammar Nazi within... (why is there an "e" at the end of the Blu in Blu-Ray?!)

They'll do that regardless of what we as consumers do. The last three Transformers have already had an ungodly number of releases (and #3 even had a 3D release, in the form of a "Limited Edition"). Chances are that if we wait, a 3D release for Age of Extinction could still happen.

I'm personally doubtful that any boycotting will have an impact, especially with a title like this that could potentially sell really well (even despite critical acclaim). But, hey, there's no harm in trying.

I'm not sure how it works for authoring 3D releases specifically; I've always heard that all optical discs cost very little to print, but I'm not sure what other associated costs are involved (such as licensing, distribution, marketing, etc). I'm sure some corporate decisions are made depending on what they perceive the video marketing trends are (and right now, 3D is not as widely adopted among consumers, so 3D may not be getting as much attention as we'd like, unfortunately).

Regardless, I'm pretty sure it'd take more than 20,000 to affect sales. I wouldn't be surprised if this sells in the millions, given the number of fans Transformers has, and I'm sure a good chunk of them will buy this regardless of critical acclaim or release quality (I wonder how many of them will be blind-buys). Boycott the film in the hundreds of thousands, then we might see results.

Whoa whoa whoa, hold on there slick. Who said these other movies aren't getting 3D releases? I'll bet GOTG will get a 3D release promptly, because most Marvel movies have been getting 3D releases; everything else comes from all different studios, so boycotting Transformers may not really affect any of these other ones. It makes as much sense as boycotting iPods to affect Microsoft or something.

I agree with this, say what you will about Mr Bay, but he does seem to care about the quality of his films for home releases. Not to the extent that James Cameron is, but he still seems to care (see his comments on transofrmers 1 only getting released on hddvd at first).

If for some reason Paramount decides to delay or not release a 3D blu version stateside...I'm so all over the UK version. Thanks for the link. Much appreciated.

I understand the reasoning behind creating this thread, in that we own a 3DTV and want our favorite 3D movies to also be offered in 3D on blu ray 3D. When it doesn't happen and our movie gets skipped over, it's disappointing. But there is hope. As others have recommended, we could always send emails requesting the company reconsider their decision and hope for results, or check the world market and import it as a last resort, which I had to do with some movies that never made it to the US for what ever reason.

Good point. The prior Transformers 3D blu rays released so there is still a chance we'll get this new movie on blu ray 3D also, considering it made a lot of box office dollars (though a big percent of that goes to the theaters, it's still very good).

I didn't see this one yet, but heard the 3D was very good/medium to strong 3D.
