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.

The Director of Art for the Transformers Robots in Disguise animated series Jose Lopez has posted some concept art on Instagram of Grimlock! While it largely looks like the final design, it does feature an alternate (very G1 looking) head. Scroll down to see the art and stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your Transformers News!
Courtesy of Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 we have another video review for the latest Transformers: Robots in Disguise Warrior class wave: Sideswipe, the teenage swordsbot! Check out the video embedded below for the wavemate of Jazz, and find out your fellow collector's thoughts on the toy - does it pass the bar?
Well, Hasbro can't win them all. Sideswipe has a great looking car mode, two tone paint and all, unfortunately that's where the compliments end. While the transformation is interesting, a flaw in the design prevents the torso from coming together properly and staying together, making posing the upper half of the figure impossible. Perhaps the inevitable repaint will somehow magically stay together, but I'm not holding out hope.
While we've seen in-hand images of the Transformers: Robots in Disguise Super Bumblebee from Hong Kong, our first US sighting comes from a Toys'R'Us store in Baton Rouge, LA (and via fellow Seibertronian carytheone)!
Check out the photo proof for the giant three-step toy below, priced at around $50, and make sure to flag it up in our Sightings section and forums to help out other collectors if you come across one yourself!
