    I've looked around the site and am honestly surprised to not see a forum section devoted to 'Transformers; Rescue Bots'.

    I know a lot of people here watch it. It's a great fun, light-hearted show, so why no forum?

    Because its fan base isn't that big and there isn't really a lot to discuss (the discussion threads don't usually get more than 60-80 replies, and people don't make threads about it often). I like RB too but I'd rather have the Animated forum back or even a BW forum before a RB forum.

    ^Yeah, pretty much that.

    I'd love an entire forum dedicated to RB, but I really don't think there'd be enough to warrant it. Between various threads in 'General Discussion' and the weekly episode discussion, there doesn't seem to be any need for anything extra. Maybe in the future, but who knows?

    Unfortunately RB doesn't have as big of a fan base as the others, so we have to stick to General for talking about it. Would be nice, but what the others say is true.

    We do have a Social Group though.

    Not much consolation, but some.

    Because Rescue bots is aimed at younger kids. Their aren't that many younger kids under 9 years of age that are members here.

    Transformers toys in general are aimed at "Ages 5+". How many of our members are children?

    Argh, I can't believe I'm trying to argue with Deathy again...

    Yes. Because kids under 9 years of age are TOTALLY going to get adult references to movies like The Birds.

    And you don't have to be a kid to think most of the stuff in the show is hilariously awesome:

    Y'know, if you asked this question in the Tech Support section of the boards you'd get an answer directly from the TFW horse's mouth.

    Otherwise it's just members speculating.
