THE AUTOBOTS ARE BACK AS “TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS” RETURNS FOR ITS SECOND SEASON ON THE HUB NETWORK, MARCH 1
Premiere Kicks Off With Two Back-to-Back, Action-Packed Episodes
A New Match Game Entitled “Hero Hunt” Launches on Hubnetwork.com
LOS ANGELES — “Transformers Rescue Bots,” animated series, created especially for younger TRANSFORMERS fans, returns for its second season on Saturday, March 1, with two all-new, back-to-back episodes starting at 1:00 p.m. ET/ 10 a.m. PT, on the Hub Network, a destination for kids and their families. Beginning on Saturday, March 8, new episodes of the show will air at 1:30 p.m. ET/10:30 a.m. PT. The series is produced by Hasbro Studios. In addition, HubNetwork.com will launch a fun-filled new match game called “Hero Hunt.”
The second season of “Transformers Rescue Bots” kicks off with action-packed, episode “Road Trip”, where a tricky transporter takes Cody for a crazy ride and Kade takes on a high-flying rescue mission. The second episode, “Sky Forest” has Cody and Frankie going head to head in a town inventor contest, leading to a jealous divide between the two. To make matters worse, Frankie's contest entry gets out of control, not only threatening her friendship with Cody and the Bots, but the safety of the entire island.
In the digital Rescue Bots game “Hero Hunt,” fans can get the Bots ready to roll by making the correct match and the more matches they make, the more points they score. Players will be challenged to complete each mission and see if they can make it to the end of the game. Viewers can get into the action at http://hubnetwork.com/herohunt.
“Transformers Rescue Bots” features a group of Autobots charged with a mission to protect and learn about humans. Stationed by Optimus Prime on a technologically advanced island, the Rescue Bots — Heatwave, Boulder, Blades and Chase — team with the Burns family of first responders, including a police chief, firefighter, rescue pilot and engineer to keep peace and safety in the city. Alongside their human friends, the Rescue Bots learn teamwork and heroism. The half-hour series brings family, heart, humor and adventure to the Transformers brand.
The series features an ensemble of voice talent including, LeVar Burton (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”) as Doc Greene, Lacey Chabert ("Party of Five") as Dani Burns, Élan Garfias (“The Hangover”) as Cody Burns, Maurice LaMarche (“Futurama”) as Chief Charlie Burns, Jason Marsden (“Step by Step”) as Kade Burns, Shannon McKain (“The Assignment”) as Graham Burns, Diamond White (“X Factor”) as Francine Greene, Jeff Bennett (“Johnny Bravo”) as Huxley Prescott, Steve Blum (“Transformers Prime”) as Heatwave, Parvesh Cheena (“Outsourced”) as Blades, D.C. Douglas (“NCIS: Los Angeles”) as Chase, Imari Williams (“Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City”) as Boulder and Peter Cullen (“Transformers Prime”) as Optimus Prime.

The official BotCon 2014 website has revealed the faction breakdown in this year's Pirates vs. Knights boxset. The set will feature three pirates and two knights, so far know the identity of one of the pirates, their captain Cannonball. The convention attendee only add-on sets will of course add to both of their ranks. BotCon takes place June 19th - 22nd in Pasadena, CA.
Thanks to fellow Seibertron staffer jON3.0 we get a small glimpse behind the curtain where we get to see a bit of the magic that helps bring our favorite characters to life. In this video it shows Optimus Prime himself, Peter Cullen, recording lines for both toys and what seems to be some possible dialogue snippets for a video game, or perhaps another Optimus Prime toy helmet.
Helping to process and finalize Mr. Cullen's work is Rick Sellers, whom we've reported on twice before, which you can read here and here. Along with him this time is Wes McCraw of Creekside Audio in Norton Ohio, where Mr. Sellers does most of his voice work for Hasbro products.
We will soon see what this recording session will create once Age Of Extinction toys and tie-ins hit retail on May 17th.

Jagex has released full bios and extended clips for Duststorm and Meltdown from the upcoming Transformers Universe online game. We've mirrored the bios and embedded the clips below. More details and stats for each can be found at the following: Meltdown - Duststorm
Meltdown is an Autobot who hates war but will never leave a fellow warrior behind.
He specializes in blasting his beam weapons - welding injured allies back together and deconstructing Decepticons (if absolutely necessary). He's also handy with a rocket launcher, although it's rumored he shuts his optics at the moment of impact. Emo-chanical issues aside, Meltdown is your bot for all reasons.
"IF AN AUTOBOT IS IN TROUBLE, MELTDOWN PUTS IT ALL ON THE LINE." - IRONHIDE
Corrupted from the inside out, Duststorm simmers with a quiet, consuming rage.
With an arsenal optimized to keep even the most ironclad predator at bay, this Decepticon will fry servos with her electrifying pistols or pop hoods from distance with deadeye precision. The tainted glint in her augmented ocular prosthesis is the only thing her victims ever see of this ghost-faced guerrilla.
"RUTHLESSLY EFFICIENT, DUSTSTORM IS A DECEPTICON WARRIOR CLOSE TO MY DARK SPARK." - MEGATRON
