So, G1 Seasons 1-2 (and presumably Season 3/2010 at a later date) will be coming to Blu-ray in Japan this winter. No other details appear to be known at the moment, but I'm sure it will be at least 50,000 yen (around $500) for all of S1-S2, and they'll probably split it up into 2 box sets.
I figured that Japan would be getting G1 on Blu-ray before the US though, considering they were the first to get most TF shows on DVD.
I really hope that it's not just an upscale of the old Laserdisc masters they've been using since the 90's, and that it's not just the Japanese dub. But including the original English audio would be somewhat difficult given that the Japanese versions have minor cuts to the episodes. We'll have to wait and see.
