Greetings Seibertronians. Today we bring you somber news as it appears that Rescue Bots Academy is coming to an end. One of the creators of the hit show have taken to twitter to thank all those that have worked on the series over at Boulder Media.
This isn't just the end of the show though, but, unless Hasbro announce a continuation of sorts, this is the end of the Aligned Universe. Aligned started with the shows Transformers Prime and the original Rescue Bots, with the Activisions two Cybertron games also falling into this universes story line. Robots in Disguise 2015 carried the Prime storyline on until its own cancellation, leaving Rescue Bots and Rescue Bots Academy to fly the flag for Aligned.
This is the original tweet by Pete Slattery.
Pete Slattery wrote:Today, I finish the first show I've directed. Three years, 104 episodes, an experience I won't forget. This was our team at the height of our power. An incredibly talented & enthusiastic bunch of artists. I'll miss them! #rescuebotsacademy #Transformers https://t.co/Fh7fnzGZFn
The series still has some episodes left to air before its end.
Have you been enjoying the run of Rescue Bots Academy? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews.
Greetings Seibertronians! Following from the news last week that the new War for Cybertron Siege cartoon, on Netflix, had been delayed
Netflix have been on socialmedia today to announce the long awaited date we can watch this highly anticipated cartoon.
Accompanying the announcement was a new thirty second teaser showing Megatron announcing that this is the day the Autobots will be destroyed. You can check the video at the links, or embedded below.
Greetings Seibertronians! The news I bring today isn't good but not unexpected either. Fellow Seibertron user, O.Supreme, let us know that the Voice Actress For Elita One, Linsay Rousseau, has posted on innstagram, and explained why we have yet to see the first part of the War for Cybertron series in our viewing queues. Her statement was in response to a question she was asked about when the show was coming out.
Linsay Rousseau wrote:I wish I knew. It was supposed to be June but due to the quarantine they didn’t finish the foreign dubs for the show. They are working on those now. Netflix is requiring that all foreign dubs be completed so the show can be launched in all languages at once. So this is in the hands of Netflix and Rooster Teeth
We'll keep you all updated on when this show will air when we have more information. Let us know your thoughts and reactions in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!
Speaking of things to keep your little bots occupied, Hasbro is offering something for the younger fans. On their Instagram page, they offered a free, downloadable coloring page for parents to print that lets kids color in Optimus Prime and Hot Shot from the Rescue Bots Academy show. The picture is mirrored below, and you can download it for your kids (or yourself, no judgement ) by clicking on the picture.
Thanks to Seibertronians william-james88 and Sabrblade, we have something to keep your little bots occupied for a while. Episodes of Bumblebee Cyberverse Adventures have been posted to the official Transformers YouTube channel!
In episode 8, "The Citizen", Hot Rod, Clobber, Whirl, Dead End and Perceptor discover the secret of Maccadam's bar, and in Episode 9 "The Trial", Hot Rod gets captured by the Quintessons, in something of a throwback to "Transformers: The Movie".
Both episodes have been mirrored below, though they may not be viewable from every location around the world.
The Transformers Official Youtube Channel has provided us with some more stop motion fun, as today, the channel has uploaded a video of the Transformers Cyberverse Season 3 trailer, but with the characters with toys edited in using stop motion!
The trailer is a mirror of the original Season 3 trailer, which can be found here, but it has removed most the characters who received toys over the past few years and replaced them with their toys. What's interesting to note is that this stop motion version of the trailer includes new toys such as the Ultra Class Rack n' Ruin, but characters like Cheetor still appear as he did originally despite having a toy. Also, the new deluxe class figures are not used, with those characters having their Warrior or Ultra Class figures used instead.
Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments section below. Also, check out the first 4 episodes of the Season, titled "Battle for Cybertron", which has been uploaded as a feature length single episode below!
There was a leader class box for the Netflix Transformers series toyline that we did not see the contents yet. It was said to contain spoilers. Well, thanks to images from Robot Kingdom, we now can see what's inside. We knew it would be Ultra Magnus, butwe didn't know the deco. Would he have a cape like in the trailer? Would he be a Decepticon? Would be have Delta Magnus colours?
None of the above. It's just Magnus looking burnt in certain areas. The real spoiler, if there was one, is Rung who is in clear fuchsia coloured plastic. Well at least now you all know what you are getting here. let us know if you will be getting it or not when it comes to Walmart soon.
