Much like the last report we had from French TV listings website Programme-TV.com, we have some further details on the remaining episode of the first season of Transformers: Robots in Disguise - and they have more spoilers than you can shake a Decepticon Hunter at.

Feel free to proceed below to read our translation of the synopses (found here) for episodes 22 to 26, airing on Wednesdays June 24th and July 1st on Canal J, but you have been warned!

22. Sworn Friends
Grimlock discovers and gets closer to another Dinobot fugitive, letting them escape, resulting in destruction and fear among the humans. Our heroes must join forces to stop them. Meanwhile, Denny builds a camper for Russell, afraid of his dad's tacky decorative taste.


23. Queen Bee
Sideswipe finds a solitary Autobot on mission on Earth, apparently also sent by Optimus. The newcomer accepts to join forces with Bumblebee's small team to defeat a Decepticon who bears striking resemblance to a queen bee.


24. Ghosts and Impostors
Bumblebee decides to show his team planet Earth's sights. He leads them to a Far West ghost town, but they encounter an Decepticon capable of mimicking any and every shape.


25. Optimus Returns
The threat looming over Earth becomes clear, and the Primes decide to send Optimus back, even though his training is not complete. Meanwhile, Steeljaw's gang allows a new, formidable enemy to also arrive on Earth: Megatronus.


26. Megatronus' Revenge
Megatronus gets ready to destroy Earth, but thanks to Bumblebee's strategy, the loyalty and courage of this team, and with the assistance of a particularly powerful Optimus, our heroes are able to defeat him.

With the US receiving its first airing of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise episode featuring Drift (voiced by Eric Bauza) this weekend, Takara Tomy designer Hisashi Yuki has tweeted a couple of comparison shots for the two companies' version of the character. Check out below the images showing the differences between Warrior class Drift (gallery here) and Transformers Adventure TAV-18 Drift, sporting a more accurate paint deco and application!

Comics and entertainment website Comic Book Resources were able to have a lengthy chat with producer and head writer for the current animated TV series Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Adam Beechen. They touched upon the presence of Grimlock, the placing of the series in terms of the wider Transformers universe, the cast, Optimus Prime and more - read the whole piece here, and some selected passages below!

The producer and head writer for Cartoon Network’s “Robots in Disguise,” Beechen shared with SPINOFF how he’s working to open up Transformers to a younger audience while building on the stories that have come before. He also explained what it’s like to tap “Batman Beyond’s” Will Friedel as the voice of Bumblebee, teased the show’s long-term mysteries about the fate of Optimus Prime, and more.

Spinoff Online: Over the past few years, Hasbro has kept the continuity from all their various “Transformers” franchises unified in one way or another between TV and video games and comics. This show is a step forward in that idea since it takes the premise past the “Autobots and Decepticons crash-landed on Earth.” What’s it like to be writing what is the forefront of the canon in some respect?

Adam Beechen: I think that I had the benefit coming in of never having worked on the Transformers franchise before. I didn’t write for “Prime.” And so I wasn’t as emotionally tied to all of the continuity elements that a lot of the people who had worked on that show had been. And it’s great that they are because they’re a wonderful resource for me to find out background info I need. But my main goal coming into this series was, “Let’s make this a show for Bumblebee. Let’s give him the exposure he hasn’t really had in a brand new way.” And as part of that, we get to introduce a bunch of new characters for a new generation of viewers that they can get attached to. It’s still part of the larger Transformers universe, but you don’t have to know 30 years of history to enjoy them, appreciate them and just have fun.

And the show then can serve as a bridge tonally between “Rescue Bots” and “Transformers Prime.” The kids aging out of “Rescue Bots” can jump onto “Robots in Disguise” and still feel at home. But at the same time, they have a little bit more serious adventures with a little bit higher stakes. And then they can ease into all the giant continuity that the series have put together.

[...]

Is it liberating as a showrunner when you work with a company like Hasbro and you have a guaranteed order for a long run on the series?

It doesn’t so much change your approach, but you know how many episodes you have, so you pace out the story you’re telling accordingly. Typically what happens in a situation like this is that at the start of the season you sit down with the brand team and find out what their plans are in terms of the upcoming seasons – as in calendar seasons – for what toys they’re releasing when and what kind of story elements they’d like to see in the upcoming episodes. You have that meeting and plan out episodes according to that, but doing so in a way that tells the best possible stories. You’re not just cramming toys in there. You want to tell a cool story and help with what they’re doing as well. And it just runs from there.

It’s pretty rare that a brand will come back to you in the middle of your season and say, “By the way, we’ve come up with a new figure that will be on the shelves of the toy stores tomorrow. Get it into the next episode!” There’s not any time for things like that. So after that initial meeting, you’re well aware of what you want to do over the course of the season and how to make everyone happy. From there, you’re free to tell the coolest stories you can.

And what about the comics side of all this? Frequently, there will be a kid-friendly comic version that ties into the show in a way that fleshes out what we see on screen. Is that the case for July’s series from IDW?

We’re very aware of what’s happening with the comics, and we love what IDW has done with this world. That factors into our thinking, and we’ve had the good fortune of having one of the key comic book writers – Mairghread Scott, who you may or may not be familiar with – work with us. Mairghread was the script coordinator on our series, and she graduated quickly to being one of the key writers on the show. She is a living repository of all things Transformers, and so she knows what’s gone on across every single medium the characters have ever appeared in. As we were working, she’d say, “The comics have already been there. You may want to do something different with an episode.” Or she may say to the comic editors, “The show did this thing, so it would be kind of cool if you tied it in this way.” I can’t say for sure how all the comics will reflect the series, but we’re definitely aware of each other as we go forward

Fellow Seibertronians Delta Magnus and Sabreblade both told us the really cool news that brand new never before seen episodes of Robots in Disguise are available on iTunes Australia. Take it away Sabr:

Sabrblade wrote:Episodes 15-20 are already on the Australian iTunes for purchasing and watching!

15. Even Robots Have Nightmares:
When Denny and the Bots are captured, Russell must keep his cool to protect the team from a Decepticon who gives life to the Autobots’ worst fears.

16. Some Body, Any Body
When the Team’s latest quarry leaves Sideswipe powerless, the young Autobot must learn that he can’t always rely on his physical prowess.

17. One of Our Mini-Cons Is Missing
Drift returns to Earth in pursuit of disgruntled runaway Jetstorm – just as the Bee Team must contend with Springload and Quillfire flying the coop.

18. Deep Trouble
Description missing; Episode 17's description is repeated instead

19. The Champ
When a Decepticon Gladiator and his cheating Manager enter a human Demolition Derby, Grimlock, Denny and Fixit pose as competitors.

20. The Trouble With Fixit
An attempt to fix ailing Fixit goes horribly wrong, converting the Mini-Con into a fully weaponized and lethal prison guard who mistakes the Bee Team for Decepticon fugitives.

Also via fellow user Sabrblade, we have some type of clarification on the Transformers: Robots in Disguise confusion about a couple of episodes that had been, so far, believed to be misplaced in the airing order - plus confirmed English titles and airing time for episodes 15 and 16 (different from the French ones seen here and here). The information is from Toonzone, which report the following airing dates and times.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise
Sat Jun 06 - 6:30am - 112 - Hunting Season
Sat Jun 13 - 6:30am - 113 - Out of Focus
Sat Jun 20 - 6:30am - 114 - Sideways
Sat Jun 27 - 6:30am - 115 - Even Robots Have Nightmares
Sat Jul 04 - 6:30am - 116 - Some Body, Any Body




Sabrblade wrote:It appears that "Out of Focus" really is the 13th episode while "Sideways" is really the 14th. The confusion between the two must have led to Australia accidentally airing "Sideways" in place of "Out of Focus", while Singapore aired the correct episode all along. Doesn't help that the Chinese website that aired the Chinese-dubbed episodes before all else listed the two in the opposite order.

Let's put it this way: this is not news. But it is entertaining, enlightening, fits easily with our recent contributor piece of the Top Ten G1 Episodes and the existence and presence on Seibertron.com for many adult collectors. From the YouTube channel series Kids React.., and via fellow user Sabrblade, we have a six minute clip of kids no older than 12 being shown the G1 Transformers for the first time, and comparisons with some of the Paramount/Michael Bay designs and some facts from the franchise.

Some of the kids make great points about the sellable value of the repurposing of the franchise, its appeal to multiple generations, and the effect it could have on the different generations - plus this one: "I think they [G1] could still be cool today, but now that we've been exposed to the movies.. the movies look so different, and that's what we're used to!"

Warning: It'll make a lot of people feel old. For real.
