Rescue Bots Season 1 Box Set Confirmed for Australia

Posted on 01-21-2015 at 05:08 PM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
bhe5999-cover-bhe-website Further to our earlier report, Beyond Home Entertainment has now confirmed that they will be releasing a complete Season 1 DVD boxed set for Transformers Rescue Bots. The set collects all 26 episodes of the show's first season, and is expected to be released on 2 March 2015.

Beyond Home Entertainment has also posted a listing for a DVD "Serve and Protect", which is also due to be released on 2 March 2015, and is expected to feature 7 episodes, based on the DVD's runtime of 154 minutes. It's thought that these will be the first seven episodes of the show's second season, given that Beyond are releasing DVDs with the show's entire run in order.

US fans, you may wish to find a way of importing these if you want the whole run of Transformers Rescue Bots on DVD, as Shout! Factory have announced they have no plans to do complete season boxed sets for the US.

Rescue Bots Season 2 Episode Chief Woodrow to Air January 18 and January 21 2015

Posted on 01-11-2015 at 04:24 AM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
888470_transformers_rescue_bots Transformers Rescue Bots Season 2 episode "Chief Woodrow" is set to air on 18 January, with a rerun on 21 January. This episode, like The Riders of Midwinter, was skipped over in the original airing of the second season of the show, but unlike that episode which was shown alongside season 3, this episode is being inserted into reruns of season 2.

Via Zap2it, we have learned that there will be an episode airing on the 18th and repeating on the 21st - and via LocateTV, we can confirm that the repeat on the 21st (and therefore the original airing from the 18th) will be the skipped episode.

According to LocateTV, the episode will feature Chief Burns' oddball brother, Woodrow, taking up the reins while his brother is out of town.

The episode is set to air at 7:30am EST on the 18th and 8:30am EST on the 21st. Be sure to tune in for this much-delayed new episode!

Rumor - Transformers Rescue Bots Season 3 to be the last?

Posted on 01-10-2015 at 05:40 PM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
TFRB_TOP Take this with a heavy dose of skepticism, but Hasbro Studio's website has updated with pages for the various Hasbro Studios shows, including Transformers Rescue Bots and Transformers Robots in Disguise.

For Transformers Rescue Bots, it is mentioned that the show has 78, 22 minute episodes - doing the math, that works out at 3 seasons each with 26 episodes.

That would imply that the currently airing third season of the show would be the last, owing to the series reaching the magic number of episodes (65) that allows a show to move into syndication.

On the other hand, it is also possible that this page is simply showing the total number of Rescue Bots episodes that have been commissioned.


On an aside, it is also mentioned that the new series, Transformers Robots in Disguise, will also run for 78 episodes, or three seasons, with the production of the show being mentioned as covering 2014-16. This might well be the ambition, but we think the show actually making it to this number of episodes will depend on how well the show goes across early on.

In both instances, it is a case of wait and see.

Boulder and Chase are now showing up at retail in their new "rescanned" alternate modes - Chase as a police SUV and Boulder as a dump truck. Notably, the Boulder features black wheels rather than green ones matching the rest of the toy, like earlier official promo images implied.

These two were spotted at a Target in Westminster, South California! Big thanks to TFW2005 member OCProwl for the heads up.

Rescue Bots Season 3 episodes 10 and 11 details and another double-bill!

Posted on 12-04-2014 at 05:55 PM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
300px-BigGame_Quint_Quarry MSN have updated their episode guide for Transformers Rescue Bots with details of the next two episodes - and we also have confirmation of another double-bill of new episodes!

First off, the double-bill - starting at 1pm EST on 13 December 2014 there will be a double-bill of new Rescue Bots episodes! The delayed season 2 episode "Riders of Midwinter" will air in an earlier 1pm EST timeslot on the Discovery Family Channel, and will swiftly be followed up by the all-new episode Switcheroo at 1:30 EST!

The two weeks that follow will bring two more all-new episodes - episodes 10 and 11 of season 3 (or 9 and 10, since there is some question of whether Riders of Midwinter is counted as season 3 now. The TV listing sites count it, so we're going by their numbering for the sake of consistency)

Those new episodes are:

S3 E10 Bot-Tastic Voyage
Airs December 20, 2014

S3 E11 Quarry's Quarry
Airs December 27, 2014

No descriptions for those as yet - but be sure to tune in to the Discovery Family Channel every Saturday at 1:30 PM EST for new Rescue Bots episodes all through December (with that double bill on 13 December starting from 1pm EST)

Rescue Bots DVD Release News for Australia - possible season box sets

Posted on 11-28-2014 at 01:27 PM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
127451-L-LO TFW2005 member griffin-of-oz dropped by to share with us some juicy information on the DVD release of Transformers Rescue Bots in Australia.

Rescue Bots in Australia is getting DVD releases courtesy of Beyond Home Entertainment, who have so far released four volumes covering the first 20 episodes of the show's first season. They are following this up by releasing a fifth volume, covering the remaining six season 1 episodes in January 2015.

This means that all 26 episodes of Rescue Bots season 1 will be available to purchase on DVD in Australia (and consequently can be enjoyed by fans worldwide, as long as you can view a Region 4 PAL DVD). Furthermore, Beyond Home Entertainment have stated they are expecting to have a complete season 1 boxed set available in around March.

This is significant, as Shout Factory has previously stated they do not intend to do season box sets for Rescue Bots in the US, and have skipped some episodes from their DVD volumes in favor of doing "themed" DVD releases.

So if you want to enjoy Rescue Bots as a complete season set, it looks like your best bet at this time is Beyond Home Entertainment and their Australian market releases. Major kudos to Griffin for sharing this with us.
