Transformers Movie

I finally saw Transformers last night, and I must say it was a lot of fun to watch.  It was kind of a surprise delivery from Netflix since there was some kind of mix-up in my queue last week.  We sat down with the boys last night, fired up the X-Box 360 HD-DVD player and movie night began.

I have to say the sound was great and the HD picture quality was excellent.  The movie followed that standard “geek boy” plot, but it was still a lot of fun.

What does this have to do with comic book movies?

This was a complete miss for me.  To be honest I just didn’t think the Transformer comic books would fare as well as they did.  The movie is based on a toy, not a comic book!  In the end it doesn’t matter what I think, the market speaks and it spoke loud a clear.  A book that was all but worthless in value a few years ago hit some amazing numbers.

Transformers #1 went from about a $150 book in CGC 9.8 a couple of years ago to upwards of $450 – $500 dollars this summer.  Check the prices on E-bay and you will still see high grade raw copies capturing a decent amount of cash.It is on its way down now, but that is to be expected.  There is talk of a Transformers 2 movie, so who knows, we may see a bump in price again.  I’ll be watching and hopefully not miss the opportunity again.
