Well, that's a strange pair of two-parters. The Season 2 premiere and the Season 2 finale, bookends without the books that connect the two.

Really wish they'd just dump the full seasons out on Blu-Ray instead of doing things like this first. Oh well. It'll be like my Energon DVD collection one of these days where I've got half the series on singles and a box set of the full thing to fill in the gaps :BANG_HEAD:

Why not just wait till they release the whole thing?

Exactly. S!F pattern of releasing single/impulse purchase DVD's first is frustrating to be sure, but waiting until they release the whole season is always a pretty safe bet (unless its Rescue Bots...). Even then, why are you hanging on to single-disc releases of Energon? why not sell them if you have the box set?

I mean the last series I bought single DVD's of was Spectacular Spider-Man because in 2009-2010 there was no sign of full season sets, until 2014 when the whole 26 episodes were released on BRD and DVD. Then I purchased that set and dumped the singles. Since then I've just learned to wait (as with RiD15) or just live without (as in the case of Rescue Bots, and pretty much all of Disney/Marvels animated series since they are not available in any physical media form)

Looks awesome, but because this is in the animated series thread, has it been confirmed he will appear in the series, and not just as a toy?

Interesting. He looks like a classic five-piece Combiner, compared to Ultra Bee's four.

I put it here because he is more likely to appear in the animated series than as a toy. All toys so far have appeared in the animated series but only half or less of characters made it to toys. And Bruticus was not part of the latst app update for toys.

If you have not gotten around to watching season 2 it is now available on Netflix.com for your viewing pleasure. There is also a 6 part mini series under the season 3 category. The highlight of this season is the return of some fan favorite characters from Transformers: Prime. But don't worry, we won't spoil a thing. Enjoy!

If RiD does not suit your fancy, we suggest checking out an upcoming documentary on some nostalgic 80's toys!

Linking this news story cause it covers some important stuff for us here: https://www.seibertron.com/transformers ... air/37399/

So, the new title sequence has Dragbreak, or whatever that guys name is, and the combiner force logo. So, we are getting season 3 people, and we are certainly getting combiners!

The Menasor and Ultrabee round shots look cool, and if you look, Drift actually forms the sword for Ultra bee!

After binging season two, want to point something out about the "first" season finale (Decepticon Island). Also, obviously, spoilers to continue. In the first part, the team find the Fix-It type Minicons being held. Optimus wants to stop the mission to cyro-bomb the Alchemor to rescue them and this pause in the mission causes them to be caught be Steeljaw and the Decepticon army, ending the first part. Let me note that Bumblebee was against stopping to save them, likely because if the mission succeeded, they could save the caretaker Minicons. When the next part begins and they barely get away (w/o Windblade), Optimus Prime berates Bubblebee because "completing the mission needed to be the priority". Hypocrisy much, OP?

I think Optimus is losing it a bit in this show. Those first few episodes show you how off he is in his reasoning. I dont know why they made him so hard to root for in this show.

I'll probably watch some of the eps I missed on TV and the eps with my favs from Prime. I could use some cheer, it's been a long day. I think RiD is good for that. Despite it's flaws it is a cheery show.

Yeah, he kind of is. Which is sad for me because in Prime he was my absolute most favorite character, hands down. His sacrifice at the end of Predacons Rising was a bit heartbreaking, but completely in-character and felt right. I think bringing him back for RiD made that sacrifice feel less... eh. I know that's his shtick, but it ruined his arc in Prime for me some.
But I'll watch RiD because I still think it's a fun show and it's nice to see other characters try the leadership position.

Since Netflix now has season 1 and 2 I'm giving it another shot. Haven't watched an episode since the premier...I think. Is there any particular reason it's worth watching? I'm still having trouble dealing with their portrayal of Grimlock, it hurts me; in my soul.

I like Season 2 better because there are some episodes with some characters from Prime that I like. I also enjoy the animal themed Decepticons. It's a little bit kiddy and the art style isn't as nice as prime but it has its moments.

I agree in that I love how Op was portrayed in TF Prime, however RiD15 is written for a much younger audience, despite occurring in the same continuity. This is very much BB's show, not Op's, so they have to build some tension between the two, showing how- while their leadership styles differ, and they both work independently, they don't work well at the same time.

I kind of wish also that Op stayed in the Obi-Wan Kenobi like role as a non-living mentor to BB. But if you go back to the original series, Op's resurrection also made his sacrifice from TF:TM feel less impactful as well. It's an unfortunate trend that will no doubt continue as long as there is Optimus Prime & Transformers.

But as for the show itself, overall its ok, not as great as Prime, but still better than a few TF series I can think of. I am admittedly excited about season three (which is the first time I've actually been excited for this series), simply because I enjoy all things having to do with combiners. I imagine that there has to be an announcement soon as to when it will start airing.
