Are they not doing season sets for this show on purpose?

Yrah, but that was back before season sets really existed as commonplace as they do now. VHS tapes couldn't as easily support as many episodes as DVD discs can.

Same happened to a show I watched back in 09-11. They season 1 was 2 6-episode volumes, then the other 14 were on another DVD, and then Season 2 could be bought either in 5 different volumes or as a collection :BOT:

There seems to be a market shift. Unfortunately as DVD and physical media is dying off, distributors make "impulse" purchase DVD's with a small sample of episodes. This is good for parents to purchase for kids I guess, but also I think is trying to coerce individuals to purchase whole seasons from online sources such as Amazon. I am sorry, but... I am not going to pay $2 per episode for something I don't have physical access to.

S!F came through with full season Blu Rays for TF : Prime ,thankfully, but to this day, there are no full season sets of Rescue Bots which my son would love, thankfully they are not Netflix currently...

Let's face it: Optimus rolling in, transforming and flying to the rescue can make pretty much any scene worth watching over and over! :BOT:

Yeah they were, I just didn't know if he thought they were actual show clips or not. Could've confused some people :BOT:

I missed where CN confirmed these were shorts... they appeared to me to be clips from upcoming episodes. Why would they make a short of a story about Autobots & Decepticons going after new Minicons that has no conclusion?

But there was a conclusion. All six shorts got posted on Hasbro's website.

Thanks, I had only seen the first two. Still, with all six scenes put together, this seems to be about 13 minuets of footage. (13:24 to be exact minus 36 seconds for six "six second" title cards=12:48) Add in probably an unseen intro, and maybe a few minutes of a B-plot in-between, and it appears to easily be a fully fleshed out episode. Keep in mind the other clips on Hasbro's website (character intros etc..) were all scenes from the actual show. When I think of shorts. I think of TFA, where the shorts clearly had no connection to any episode and were all self contained. Still, It's not that big a deal, we'll find out in a few months either way.

For Season 2, are we going to see Clipshade go head-to-head with Steeljaw? It would be interesting to see these two dogs battle each other out. Consider this: German shepherd versus a wolf. Which one will likely win? :BOT: :CON:

AH, I'm back fellas. Glad to hear that Season 2 will be the last of RID. Not that it was bad or anything, but I really want to see some new toys on the shelves before TF5 hits the fan.

Fingers crossed for Crazybolt to show up in the show, I love his design!

And it's good to see some things never change ;) . Once again psj, extremely low to nochance that any characters from the IDW comics would be showing up in the cartoon. Kids don't read the comics, and kids are the target audience, so it wouldn't make sense to throw in Clipshade in the show. Besides, how would they explain his position in that universe? They would have to introduce the Cybercomrade Sect, as well as Ultra Magnus and his team!

Madeus_Prime, that might be true. However, what you might not realize is that the last two issues of the IDW RID comics are being used as prequels to Season 2. For those who have already read issue #5, you will note that Steeljaw is planning to build an army of his own by recruiting 3 Vehicons to be on his team. At the end of the issue, when the Vehicons retreated after they were no match for the Autobots, Steeljaw has already informed them, that he has successfully kidnapped Denny and Fixit. He told the Autobots to either have all of his fellow friends released from prison, or that he will have Fixit and Denny killed on the spot if they don't comply. This will be determined in issue #6 which leads to Season 2. Will Bumblebee be intimidated by this?

Also if Clipshade chose not to show up for Season 2, then so be it. But I'm quite certain that Hasbro will introduce an Autobot spy for Season 2, to say the least.


And as you pointed out earlier, you were hoping that Hasbro will bring out the Decepticon toys that many of us really hoped for. I do too. Unfortunately, at this time, they decided to hold that back. This is not to say that Decepticon characters are not popular, but they did it on purpose. Why? They needed more time to finish creating all props and accessories for fans to use. These include, coloring books, stickers, lunch boxes, watches, thermos, weapons, masks, Halloween costumes, candy despensers, and most recently, coffee mugs. Once that's done, then they will give the fans what they really want. :BOT: :CON:

My guess is, guess mind you, is that it will not be referenced in the slightest. Not enough of the target audience read the comics, like I said, so why would they connect the show into it. Perhaps the comic will lead into Season 2, but Season 2 won't lead from the comic. It simply doesn't make sense to write in the IDW comics into the cartoon mythos, because no kids will have read them to have it make sense.

Maybe? There has been no evidence of such, but it's possible.

Erm, no actually. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Hasbro's merchandise department and toy department are not run by the same guy. The reason no Decepticons are being made is because Hasbro thinks that kids only ever like toys of the good guys. That's the reason, not because they wanted to give its target audience:
psj333 wrote:coloring books, stickers, lunch boxes, watches, thermos, weapons, masks, Halloween costumes, candy despensers, and most recently, coffee mugs

I can safely say that almost nobody on here buys these, short of maybe the coffee mugs. Plus kids don't use about 75% of that stuff (When was the last time you saw a kid with a coloring book?).

Look, Madeus_Prime, I do understand where you're form. However, correct me if I'm wrong. But in case you didn't get my point, I'm say that only issue 5 and issue 6 are set right after Season 1. On the other, issues 1, 2, 3, and 4 have no relations with Season 1 or 2 in any way. Only 5 and 6, got that now? The reason why I said this is because, I've read the comic so that I know what the story is all about. That will be continued in issue 6, right before Season 2 starts. This has absolutely to do with issues 1, 2, 3, and 4. Those issues have stories of their own, whereas 5 and 6 are like prequels to Season 2. If you still can't handle that, then that's fine. But you know what? We'll see about that, when issue 6 comes out and see what will Steeljaw will do to Fixit if the Autobots don't comply. :BOT: :CON:
