I haven't had the chance to go through it, but the first one seems to be up already. That was fast.

Seibertron user Zeedust has discovered the new Rescue Bots interactive video has been posted. This video contains two missions, a fire rescue and a water rescue. It acts like a choose your own adventure game. It is well animated and is like starring in a mini episode of Rescue Bots. We have posted the interactive video below so you can try it out. Have fun!

I've played the YouTube game a couple times now and have figured out a certain pattern to it that's a bit skewed. There are three missions in all that you can participate in: A fire rescue, a water rescue, and a final mission at the firehouse (plus some smaller sidequest objectives you can do along the way to the fire and water rescues). The final mission won't become available to you until after you complete the fire and water rescues, but there's a catch. The game wants you to do the fire rescue first and the water rescue second in order to grant you the final mission. So if you choose to do the water rescue first and the fire rescue second, you have to do the water rescue again in order to progress to the final mission. Otherwise, the game will not give the final mission as an option until you've completed the water mission only after the fire mission.

What's more is that the sidequest options given to you en route to the water mission differ depending on whether you do the water mission before or after the fire mission.

If you choose the water rescue first, you're sent straight to the waterfront with Heatwave and proceed across the water in his boat mode. Then, an island appears in front of you and you're given the choices of crossing the island on dry ground to take a shortcut to the water rescue, or staying in the water by having Heatwave go around the island in boat mode. From either of these options, you eventually make it to the water rescue to partake in it.

But when (not if, when) you do the water rescue after the fire rescue, on your way to the waterfront with Heatwave, you're given an additional set of choices before the island ones, in which you can choose to either race Blurr to get to the waterfront quicker, or to ignore Blurr's race challenge and follow Dani's test flight path to the waterfront. From either of these choices, you eventually make it to the waterfront and proceed across the water in Heatwave's boat mode. From here, the same island choices are given, which both eventually lead to the same water rescue.

As for the fire rescue options, they are the same no matter what order you choose. On your way to the fire, Jerry's truck is danger. Chief and Chase are on the scene to help, but Heatwave also gives you the choice to help out as well or to proceed to the fire while the others help Jerry. Either option leads to the next set of choices. A bridge you need to cross is closed and the accumulated traffic is in your way. Your options are to either go around the traffic (even though the bridge is out) or to go back and find a different route. Either option eventually leads you to the fire rescue.

For the final mission, well, it's not much. You don't really do anything yourself (as in, there's no options for you to personally make after you choose to simply partake in the mission), but you still get all the credit for completing the mission even though the animation clearly showed Blades to be the one who singlehandedly took care of the threat all by himself.

We haven't heard much from them in a while, but it looks like, come January 2018, the Rescue Bots will be in the spotlight, with a new DVD release from Shout Factory scheduled. With a runtime of 110 minutes, that breaks down to five episode-length stories- with Rescue Bots Academy on the horizon, it's a likely guess that these stories are a repackaging of previous episodes, but that remains to be seen. Are you planning on picking this up? Let us know!

Five Adventures In The Great Outdoors!

Alongside the Burns family, Autobots Chase, Heatwave, Blades and Boulder—known to the citizens of Griffin Rock as the Rescue Bots—battle all manners of hazards each and every day. From powerful winter storms to ocean rescues, nothing is too great a challenge for our heroes. Except, maybe, ghost ships! Oh, well... All in a day's duty for the Rescue Bots!

At the time of this article being posted there is a slight discount that will save you exactly one dollar. The disc contains 5 different episodes and has a total run time of 110 minutes.

If you or your kid enjoy rescue bots you may be interested to know that there are some new listings for Rescue Bots items, including play sets.

The description sure doesn't sound like episodes 1 through 5.

EDIT: Now that I've clicked onto the listing page to see the episodes listed, it's Episodes 28, 40, 41, 71, and 73.

And, boy, is that a bad choice on Shout! Factory's part to include only Episode 71 without 70 and 72 accompanying it, since those three episodes make up a very character-driven, grand-scaled three-parter with 71 picking up from the bleak and dour ending that 70 left off on and ending on a serious drama-filled cliffhanger that 72 would resolve rather intensely. Not including either 70 or 72 to go with 71 is a very bad move.

It would be like if a Beast Wars DVD containing random episodes included only Part 2 of "The Agenda" without the other two parts.

But all previous DVD news was posted in the cartoon thread (since they're DVDs for the cartoon).

|:| , anther quarter, another random single dvd. At this point, since the show is over, I'm beyond asking for season sets. Now it would just be nice to have a complete series box set. I understand that S!F probably doesn't think there's much profit in that. Just offer it as a S!F site exclusive then, or even a MOD, I don't care. My son has aged out of the show, he loved it as a youngster, but I'm pretty sure he wont be watching RB Academy. I just want this for completion sake as a collector of TF Media.

It's geared twards kids and getting money from their parents. At least parents not in the know about how much more efficient it would be to have DVDs for each season. Most parents aren't in the know and just want something cheap to entertain their kid. Honestly most parents would probably just let their kid watch what's on netflix rather than keep DVDs on hand nowadays.

Alright, this has been in my TVShowTime (app rhat tracks tv show air dates and reminds the user when something new is on) for a while. I smell something fishy, with the fact that its the only episode, listed under a new season, and with a bucnh of unknown characters but before I totally write this off as hoac, what is this???

I've seen episode reviews for other shows written in a similar fashion on Wikipedia before. My guess it was written in another language (perhaps some Chinese dialect, which is notorious especially with names), then translated with some spotty online program into English. At first thought, it might be some insiders review of the first episode of RB Academy, but probably not. Probably just somebody writing a bogus review for the fun of it. Similarly, I've seen false entries on Wikipedia before. The best one was that the final 3 episodes of Season 2 of Avengers Assemble was going to be an Avengers vs X-Men story. Part of me wanted to believe this because it theoretically could have been written before then embargo on using F4 & X-Men characters on Disney shows, but alas it was all bogus.

The days of TF: Prime were downright nightmarish for things like this since people kept writing their own fake episode descriptions for that show on both Wikipedia and IMDB.

In 2016, after four long seasons of 104 episodes, Transformers: Rescue Bots came to an end. Despite Hasbro's intent for it to advertise a line of toys aimed at toddlers and preschoolers, the show's writing staff skewed toward a more mature audience with quality writing, excelling voice acting, and a real sense of heart and sincerity.

It received a sequel series in Rescue Bots Academy, which had just as many episodes (albeit, in half the running-time length), and came to an end in 2020/2021, bringing with it the formal end of Hasbro's experimental Aligned continuity. Ironically, it was these two shows that basically ended up being the glue that held the Aligned continuity together, when all of its other components refused to play nice with each other.

Anyway, since both series' ending, a devoted fanbase has nonetheless carried on in both series's wake, keeping the legacy of Rescue Bots alive and strong all these years later. And to illustrate that devotion, a collaboration of fans have come together under the banner of TurboFox Zines to create a Rescue Bots fanzine free to download in PDF form! This fanzine contains a gallery of artwork created by a legion of talented artists, as well as two short prose stories.

One of these stories (as well as the fanzine's Foreword) is written by none other than Nicole Dubuc, co-creator and story editor of Rescue Bots, co-creator and executive producer of Rescue Bots Academy, and one of the writers for both Transformers: Prime and Robots in Disguise (2015), as well as executive producer of EarthSpark.

The story she has written for this fanzine was based on a story proposed and discussed by the Rescue Bots production crew when they were crafting the Season 1 finale. It provides a possible answer for one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the Rescue Bots series: "What happened to the mother of Cody, Kade, Dani, and Graham, Chief Charlie's wife?"

I just read the story, and it really tugs at your heartstrings.

The fanzine is available to download here, along with a separate ZIP folder containing PNG emojis and stickers.
