So, we get Part 1 of an important two-parter (but not Part 2), three standalone episodes (this is fine), one of those being an episode that follows on from a previous space-themed episode (which is not included here), and the conclusion of the show's most important story arc (but which is unconnected to most of the eps on this set)?

Transformers: Rescue Bots, nearing its fourth season soon, will apparently add a new female character to the cast, and she may very well be of Cybertronian origin! The confirmation comes from series writer and co-creator Nicole DuBuc, via fellow fansite TFW2005 member IceMagnus - no current further details, but you can check out the short Twitter exchange below.

I have no interest in Rescue Bots, but it's always nice to see females (and fembots) being more visible.

It's definitely a kiddie show for kids, but well written. Hopefully there will be less whining about whoever this new fembot turns out to be.

Which is par for the course of most every TF cartoon (the likes of Beast Machines and TF: Prime being exceptions rather than the norm). ;)

Arguably one of, in not the, most well written one we've ever got. :D

Huh? Less whining? Did some not like a previous fembot character in another show? Image

My son was 6 when the first RB episode premiered, he is 10 now. I just hope he hasn't outgrown RB by the time season 4 premiers. (he doesn't talk about it much now, or even watch the episodes on Netflix) For adults its no big deal to wait months, or even a year between seasons, but for kids it seems like forever. I have no vested interest in this show. PRIME was MY show, and until the next mature TF series comes along (hopefully the Machimina's CW), I patiently wait, but for my sons sake, I hope season 4 comes along soon. Probably spring 2016 I'm guessing however...

And I'd be willing to bet the Female Transformer is Windblade in a couple of episode rather than a new character series regular.

But, Windblade's over in RID right now, and not a Rescue Bot.

that's why I said Cameo just like BB & Optimus (who appeared in TF Prime & RB synonymously) Windblade would likely only appear in a couple of episodes

But would she be online at this point in time, though? Didn't she reactivate during RID season 1 (which takes place in the future from RB's present)?

In her first RID episode, I believe Windblade appeared from a Space Bridge (don't quote me its been a few months since I watched it) But whether she was a new creation on Cybertron's Post-Prime era, or a returning Autobot from deep space is never really explained.

Also the time between the end of TF Prime, current RB, and Future RID is a little sketchy. I know they are all supposed to be in an "Aligned" continuity, but without details, and different people working on each show, I really don't think Hasbro cares too much, unfortunately.

She woke up on Earth one month prior to her debut episode.

And if Bumblebee's still beeping in RB, then RB is still before RID.

That episode deserves to be awarded! One of the best, most entertaining episodes of the whole series. So much effort and love went into that one with everybody giving it their all to make it the most it could be.

If not that one, then "Switcheroo" would the next obvious choice to be nominated. :D

The key phrase in all of that of course being, Pre-School children. ;) Don't get me wrong, I'm glad youngsters have a fun, entertaining, safe show that is well written they can enjoy, and it shouldn't be taken from them. It's just that as an adult fan who has supported the brand since the very beginning, I'd like a show I can enjoy as well. TF: Prime was a perfect example of this.

Age range has little to do with how good this show is. I'm an adult with no children of my own and vastly preferred/prefer Rescue Bots over Prime any day.

Prime should never be considered the standard that any normal TF cartoon should adhere to (especially Prime's awful first season, seasons 2-3 were much better). It was an exception to the norm.

SEASON 4 TRAILER!!!!!!



Consists of both new footage from season 4 and old footage from previous seasons.

Also, Cody's got a new, older-looking design, and we get our first glimpse of the new female Rescue Bot (despite what some suspected, it's not Medix).

So there's some kind of timeskip involved?

I'm guessing Garfias's voice dropped, thus necessitating that Cody be a little older to avoid recasting him.
