I was a huge fan of Transformers when it first cane out in the 80's (Yeah, I'm dating myself). I would run home to catch the latest episodes and talk to my friends about it the next day. When the animated movie was released I almost lost my mind because of all the awesomeness in the movie.
The soundtrack was a must have for me and I could not believe the many deaths that occurred in the movie. I still have the cassette somewhere and the album on vinyl. The Transformers cartoons have gone through various incarnations and coming this March is the latest one is coming to the Cartoon Network.
Last year we had an exclusive look at the SDCC trailer on our Youtube page and now we get the official word that the cartoon is coming soon to a television near you. Here's a refresher in case you missed it the first time.
Here's the press release from Hasbro:
Cartoon Network will unleash TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise on Saturday, March 14 at 6 p.m. (ET/PT) with a special one-hour premiere event. The latest installment in the iconic franchise features an all new animation style, and builds upon the lore of the iconic Transformers franchise filled with great humor and lots of fun adventure for fans of all ages.
The new series begins as Bumblebee must step up to be a leader in the years after we left the Autobots inTransformers Prime. Summoned by Optimus Prime to save Earth from a new Decepticon threat, Bumblebee puts his light-hearted mettle to the test after assembling a rogue team of young Autobot action heroes. Bumblebee must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally band that needs constant coaxing to learn how to work together. The results are comical when the cool rebel Sideswipe, elite guard cadet Strongarm, bombastic dinobot Grimlock and overly-excited mini-con Fixit must balance keeping the team together with chasing and capturing their new enemies in every episode packed full of action, fun and adventure.
