First Trailer for Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy

Postby Va'al » Sat Apr 07, 2018 1:58 am

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Thanks to notifications from a number of Seibertronian community members, we are able to link to the first trailer for the upcoming animated series created by Hasbro and Boulder Media Studios - Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy!

Part of the same universe as the series set in Griffin Rock and for all we know so far a direct sequel with a younger target audience, Rescue Bots Academy sees the new characters of Hot Shot, Whirl, Medix, Hoist, and Wedge follow predecessors Heatwave, Chase, and Boulder in learning how to respond to emergency situations and become heroes at the Training Academy of the title. Check it out below!

A group of young Bots fresh from Cybertron (Hot Shot, Whirl, Medix, Hoist and Wedge), have the honor of being the first-ever class to enroll in Earth’s Rescue Bot Training Academy and learn how to become Earth heroes through hands-on experience.

Think goodness their starting to experiment with Optimus voices that are not Peter Cullen. (I love Peter but he cant be Optimus forever...plus honestly his Optimus voice outside of the movies has been getting dull for awhile but that's probably more on the dreaded bad written dialogue we have gotten in the last few cartoons)

Hot Shot and Whirl sound fine, it's a show for younger kids so I'm not going to expect this to be something for me.

It doesn't look too bad, the animation and designs look ok for what it is, and it's good to hear someone other than Peter Cullen voicing Optimus for a change. Once the toys come out I might get a Hot Shot and a Wedge for my nephew (I would say Whirl too, but he prefers things with wheels). I hope the toyline includes some figures with a pull-back-and-go function, because that's my nephew's favorite type of toy right now, I got him the Rescue Bots Supercharger Bumblebee for his first birthday and he loves it.

I think it would be far better that way. Yes it would be better with the new catch frase;

So.... Yeah. That looks like the Beast Hunter Optimus Prime design...

Got hit hmwith a baseball bat before ot was rendered in Flash Cell whatever... Its eh.

Not fond that that changed Heatwave's head to a grizzled old drill seargent, but oh well.

Kinda sad Medix didnt keep her ambulance alt mode given that Hoist is a straight up copy of his. Not thT it matters since I am not buying these, but.

Can I just say though I am ecstatic at the RID Revival? We are getting Shadow Striker in Cyberverse, now Wedge is an orange bobcat in Rescue Bots. Can I get a new Side Burn somewhere please?

Of course NOT why would hasbro give us a whole (nonG1) set?
I like the style of them (exept Prime) and would love to see them do the whole Rescue Bots team in Generations

Yeah, none of the voice cast from the previous series were carried over into this one, as it's being recorded in New York (first TF cartoon to ever be recorded there, even) instead of Los Angeles.



Flashwave wrote:So.... Yeah. That looks like the Beast Hunter Optimus Prime design...
It's more based on the new evergreen design that's being widely used now, in IDW, in Aesthetics, in Cyberverse, etc.

Isn't Medix male?

While Shadow Striker was retooled from a RiD mold, she was a G1 character (a friend of Trailbreaker, Sunstreaker, and Sideswipe, no less), released in the first Universe line as an OTFCC 2003 exclusive.

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Courtesy of Toon Boom and an interview they published with Robert Cullen, animator and founder of Boulder Media Studios - the Hasbro partner working on the upcoming animated series Rescue Bots Academy and Transformers: Cyberverse - we have a quick look at the two designs for Hot Shot and Bumblebee from the two shows respectively (you can discussion Rescue Bots Academy in its thread here).

Cullen talks about the studio in general and the recent acquisition by Hasbro and nothing specific about the shows, but if you're curious, you can look at the relevant passages below!

Boulder went from producing three projects at most to six IPs including season two of Danger Mouse and Hasbro’s Micronauts, The Littlest Pet Shop, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls and Rescue Bots Academy, all in Toon Boom Harmony. The studio is also storyboarding the latest Transformers series and its first CG animated feature film in Storyboard Pro.

With so many new productions, Boulder suddenly needed storyboard artists, concept designers and animators. The challenge became to scale up and find top talent without losing its quality and personality.

“We’ve always been quite selective about who we hire and it’s not just the talent I’m looking at; I want to know if they’re nice people and if they will fit in,” says Cullen.

Its team now includes people from around Ireland and the world, though growing from 160 to 360 seats in just over a year comes with certain concerns as well. Namely, keeping the boutique studio corporate culture it had established.

“Each project has a team with their own director and production manager — every piece feels like it’s a boutique production that people can take pride in,” says Cullen. “It doesn’t feel like we’re this vast company making random shows and we have to make sure it stays that way.”

Script Writing Team Double Z writing scripts for Rescue Bots Academy

Postby ZeroWolf » Fri Sep 07, 2018 3:11 pm

Motto: "My past no longer binds my future..."
Weapon: Battle Blades
Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, jON 3.0, we've now learned that script writing team Double Z Creative are working on the scripts for the Rescue Bots Academy cartoon, produced by Boulder Media. UK and Irish fans will recognise Double Z as the creators of Zig and Zag, regular fixtures on the old channel 4 show "The Big Breakfast" and chart toppers with their own number one single in the nineties. The pair have also seen a resurgence with their own cartoon on the BBC kids channel, CBBC (Still with Double Z handling scripts and doing voices).

Image

Also, through a report over at TFW2005, it's been revealed that the show will feature 104 episodes, though the episodes themselves will be 11 minutes each.

TFW2005 wrote:Their official website also mentions the planned episode count for the show. Equaling its predecessor; Transformers: Rescue Bots, Academy will also feature 104 episodes but at 11-minute runtime each (as opposed to the original’s 22-minute format).
” Writers on a new (11min x 104) action adventure animated series for the International market. This series is the latest addition to the hugely successful Transformers universe. “

104? That's the same exact number that the first show got.

104 11 minute episodes is basically the same commitment as 52 22 minute episodes. 52 episodes seems to be the "sweet spot" of commitment run (i.e., 4 seasons of 13 episodes).

So far, neither episode has been uploaded to any of the usual places to watch them online. But, after a Google Search, I have found Episode 1 online, but not Episode 2.
