Hey Friends, did you happen to catch this fun series when it aired on the Cartoon Network earlier this year? Well, if you happened to miss an episode or two there is not need to worry because the good people at Shout! Kids and Hasbro Studios are releasing the entire first season on DVD on October 20th.
Being a fan of G1 Transformers series, I was really impressed with the storyline and enjoyed seeing old favorites in crisp, new designs. This DVD is up already for pre-order at WalMart and Amazon and is sure to be a hit come this holiday season.
Here is the official word from our friends at Shout! Factory. Keep an eye for a full review and more in the coming weeks.
"The new mission begins as BUMBLEBEE must step up to be leader in the years after we left the AUTOBOTS in TRANSFORMERS 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 rouge team of AUTOBOTS action heroes. BUMBLEBEE must balance his job fighting off evil with being equal parts squad leader and coach to a rascally team 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 each adventure-filled episode.
TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE features the voice talent of Will Friedle (Boy Meets World), Darren Criss (Glee), Constance Zimmer (Entourage), Khary Payton (Teen Titans Go!), Mitchell Whitfield (TMNT) and Peter Cullen who voices OPTIMUS PRIME when he makes cameo appearances in this series.
Five action-packed TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE adventures include:
- Pilot, Part 1
- Pilot, Part 2
