For Immediate Release

SHOUT! FACTORY AND HASBRO STUDIOS ENTER
NEW TELEVISION CONTENT DISTRIBUTION ALLIANCE
FOR HOME ENTERTAINMENT


Multi-Year Agreement Grants Shout! Factory Distribution Rights to
Popular Animated Series from Hasbro Studios


Los Angeles, CA and Pawtucket, RI – July 13, 2012 – Shout! Factory and Hasbro Studios today announced a strategic distribution collaboration to bring current animated hit series KAIJUDO: RISE OF THE DUEL MASTERS and TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS to the home entertainment marketplace in the U.S and Canada. This new multi-year alliance provides Shout! Factory with exclusive DVD rights to these two programs produced by Hasbro Studios. The announcement was made today by Shout! Factory’s founding partners Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos; and Hasbro Studios President Stephen Davis.

“We are incredibly excited and look forward to presenting these highly entertaining series on family home entertainment shelves. Having worked closely with Hasbro Studios on top brands like animated series TRANSFORMERS PRIME, G.I. JOE RENEGADES, MY LITTLE PONY FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC and more, this new opportunity continues to build on our growing success in distributing premiere animation and family friendly home entertainment brands in the marketplace." Shout! Factory’s founding partners stated.

“Shout! Factory has been a tremendous partner in maximizing the value of our hit entertainment titles in the kids’ marketplace," Davis said. “With their exceptional marketing and distribution prowess, we look forward to more great things from them with the rollout of our next two big franchises."

Shout! Factory plans an aggressive rollout of KAIJUDO: RISE OF THE DUEL MASTERS and TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS on home entertainment shelves. As excitement builds for these new entertainment product lines, Shout! Factory and Hasbro Studios will announce additional news and activities later this year.
Featuring the voice talents of popular actors Scott Wolf, Freddy Rodriguez, John DiMaggio, Oded Fehr and Phil LaMarr, KAIJUDO: RISE OF THE DUEL MASTERS from Hasbro Studios and Wizards of the Coast is an action-fantasy series and follows the adventures of a young hero, Ray, who possesses the rare ability to befriend and duel alongside fantastical creatures from a parallel dimension. Evil forces would have these creatures tamed and enslaved, so Ray and his two best friends must join the ranks of the mysterious Duel Masters to ensure the survival of both races before it's too late. In the end, it's up to Ray to master the ancient art of Kaijudo in order to protect both worlds.
TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS is created specifically for the younger generation of TRANSFORMERS fans and features a group of AUTOBOTS charged with a mission to protect and learn about humans. Stationed by OPTIMUS PRIME on the technologically advanced island Griffin Rock, the RESCUE BOTS - HEATWAVE, BOULDER, BLADES and CHASE - team with the Burn’s family of first responders—including a police chief, firefighter, rescue pilot, engineer and the young hero Cody Burns—to keep peace and safety in their new found home. Alongside their new human friends, the RESCUE BOTS learn teamwork and heroism. Produced by Hasbro Studios, the half-hour series brings family, heart, humor and adventure to the TRANSFORMERS brand. Executive produced by Jeff Kline, TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS features the vocal talents of LeVar Burton, Lacey Chabert, Steve Blum, Maurice LaMarche and Peter Cullen, who voices OPTIMUS PRIME when he makes cameo appearances in this series.

Unless this has some bonus content worth checking out, I want the full season on DVD, not individual volumes.

Um.... what? Episodes 2, 3, 4, 5, and 8? With episode 1 as a bonus episode? And that's the extent of the good bonus content?

Okay, as much as I love Rescue Bots, this is a PASS!!! >:oP

Yeah, I agree. Considering what a great job Shout! has done on complete box sets of so many '80s and '90s cartoons + other stuff I love like MST3K, I expected better. Sure it's "just preschool TF", but it's also part of the Aligned family, and quite frankly has better internal continuity than its older brother, the Prime cartoon. Even if complete season box sets aren't viable, they should respect broadcast order.

I wonder if this is the result of Hasbro's meddling; they screwed up what fans considered to be correct episode order for Shout!'s G1 re-release, right? I sure hope this doesn't bode ill for the complete widescreen release of TF Animated that the Hub's gotten our hopes up for.

I'm sure this is just an individual volume release and that the season 1 box set will come later, after the season 1 finale airs.
