Transformers Rescue Bots Energize DVD

Posted on 12-08-2012 at 08:21 AM by Sol Fury under Rescue Bots
TV Shows on DVD has news of a new Transformers Rescue Bots DVD. Due out on 5 March 2013 by Shout! Factory, the DVD is titled "Transformers Rescue Bots Energize". The DVD runs for 110 minutes, so probably contains 4 episodes of the show. The cover, shown at left, features Optimus Prime, Blades and Chase.

There's no word on what is on the disk yet - potentially it will be a compilation of episodes from season 1 of the show, however, the new assortment of Rescue Bots shown at New York Comic Con 2012 was subtitled as "Energize", so this DVD just might tie into that assortment - and hence the show's second season - somehow.

We'l keep you updated on any new developments.

I believe Shout factory has said that shows for the age group that Rescue Bots are aimed at do better in volumes, which is also how they put out the Super Hero Squad dvd's.
Okay, happy to hear something's coming...the cover art is great...but..

1 disc, 110 minutes? another 5 episodes...that rips. They should just release the entire won't break anybody's wallet. Just make a commitment to a S1 DVD/BR... come on Shout, you can do it.
Agreeing with out of buying anime a couple eps at a time, prefer the entire season.
Ok now full season blu ray....

I never understood why they bother with only a few episodes when full box sets are much more desirable.

It supposedly has more attraction as an impulse buy...thinking parents will pick up a DVD that's less than $10 (of course they're MSRP listing for $15, they'll never get that anyway)....when $19-$25 could buy the whole season.

I hate these 4 issue discs. I want a DVD set. Oddly, someone must be buying these short episode DVDs because Shout! and other companies seem committed to them. I still hate my X-Men: Evolution and Young Justice sets are so fragmented across so much shelf space.
