Following the revelation that ‘Transformers 4’ will be titled Transformers: Age of Extinction (and of course, that there will be Dinobots), Madman is proud to announce that a new collection of fan-favourite Transformers releases, consisting of the Transformers Animated series and the Transformers Unicron Trilogy, will begin hitting DVD shelves and digital platforms from November, 2013.
The first release on November 20 will be the complete first season of Transformers Animated, the 2007 marquee Cartoon Network series which was the basis for Hasbro’s toyline of the same year leading into the release of the first Transformers live action movie..
All Transformers Animated releases will be available in widescreen on DVD, as well as HD across digital platforms. Madman will also be exclusively releasing the third season of Transformers Animated, which has been previously unavailable anywhere else in the world.
Closely following in December, Madman will unleash the first stage of the Unicron Trilogy with the first season collection of Transformers Armada, the 2002 series which featured staples Megatron, Optimus Prime and Starscream alongside fan-favourites such as Hot Shot and introduced the world to the ‘Mini-Cons’.
Consisting of Transformers: Armada, Transformers: Energon and Transformers: Cybertron – and named after the big bad villain featured across all three series – the Unicron Trilogy was a collaborative reboot of the Transformers universe, conceived out of America and animated and created in Japan by the likes of Studio Gonzo (Full Metal Panic, Hellsing), Actas Inc (Shin Megami Tensei Devil Children) and 3D graphics specialists, Studio A-CAT.
The series which followed Transformers: Beast Wars, the Unicron Trilogy features 3D computer generated robots and vehicles, along with epic anime-style story arcs.
Both Transformers Animated and the three seasons of the Transformers Unicron Trilogy have previously aired on Australian television on Cartoon Network and Channel 10.
Madman will continue to release further Transformers Animated and Transformers Unicron Trilogy season collections on DVD and digital platforms into 2014, with a new release assured for each month leading up to May – ahead of Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, which will hit cinemas in late June, 2014.
This fresh slate of fan-anticipated releases further cements Madman’s long standing reputation as experts on Transformers lore and will perfectly compliment their extensive catalogue, which includes Transformers Generation 1, Transformers Japan Generation 1 (Headmasters, Super God Masterforce and Victory) Transformers: Prime and Transformers: Beast Wars.

It’s time to save the day in seven daring missions with the LeapFrog Transformers Rescue Bots Race to the Rescue learning game! Join Cody's family and the Rescue Bots to save the citizens of Griffin Rock from a series of disasters. The evil genius Dr. Morocco and his legion of no-good Disaster Machines are behind the calamities, and the citizens of Griffin Rock need your help! Learn about natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, tornados and volcano eruptions, the many first-response professions, plus increase health and safety know-how while mastering interactive games. Gear up with the correct equipment before going on rescue missions, then navigate landforms and build map-reading skills while helping to direct the Rescue Bots. Jump into seven rescue missions, and be the first to arrive on the scene! Works with LeapPad Ultra, LeapPad2, LeapPad1 , LeapsterGS and Leapster Explorer (sold separately).
Get right into the action with favorite Transformers Rescue Bots! Your child will have loads of exciting opportunities to apply new knowledge, but first, there’s some fun training to do. Little ones learn about the complexities of nature and of natural phenomena. They review a Rescue Briefing, select a mission and get familiar with using a map to better understand the challenge that lies ahead. Then it’s time to take action! The first task is to select the correct gear for the mission at hand. Once suited up, little adventure seekers head to the scene, avoiding hazards and remembering to collect Energon to power up. To complete the rescue mission, little ones must identify landforms, hazards and more. When the mission’s complete, they use their newly acquired knowledge to disable the Disaster Machine.
The LeapFrog Difference
LeapFrog has created a learning/play environment that is developmentally appropriate for children ages 4 to 7 years. Transformers Rescue Bots Race to the Rescue introduces a range of different earth science topics from earthquakes to volcanoes and thunderstorms in a non-threatening, play-based manner. Each fun-filled lesson includes basic science concepts and vocabulary terms relating to each of the new topics. Your little scientist will also be more informed about how different natural phenomena impact human communities and lives. The lifecycle of a natural disaster is animated throughout the game, and your child gets to witness how first responders—firefighters, police, emergency pilot, etc.—might react and what special equipment they use. Tips on how to be safe in an emergency are also woven into each story. Designed to help your child feel safe and empowered, they receive light exposure to an often frightening topic. "This game builds learning right into the action. As children prepare the Rescue Bots for missions and pilot them through obstacles, they learn about real life science and social studies concepts that are key to completing those rescue missions. Whether it's outfitting first responders with the correct gear, identifying areas in danger on a map or understanding the science behind natural phenomena, children explore science concepts as they navigate their way to success in this game." - Clement C., LeapFrog Learning Expert
