Well I guess Transformers Prime isn't the only TF show to come back around February! That's good news!

So was Rescue Bots more well received than Prime or is Prime still on top? Either way, this is just good news for us fans.

Also, this is interesting, but according to TFwiki, Rescue Bots is part of the Aligned Continuity. Imagine that, Prime and Rescue Bots. It is categorized under Rescue Bots fiction, though.

I still think Prime is still the best recived show n the Hub but Rescue Bots may be VERY close to being in a tie with TFP. I could be wrong though.

I've heard about Rescue Bots being in the Aligned Countinuty but here's the thing for me. How does a light hearted show like Rescue Bots tie in to a more darker and serious show like Transformers Prime?! Maybe I'm taking this too seriously but that's almost like the eqivulent of tie Transformers Animated into the Movieverse! If there's a logical and sensible explanation for it I'll accept that but as of now I don't think there's proof of that.

Well, if you look closely to the storyline of Rescue Bots, some things just don't make sense, whether it takes place after Prime (which spoils Optimus survives the Prime series) or within the 3 year gap of the Autobots arriving on Earth (which already contradicts itself in many ways). That's probably why it was labeled under Fiction in that continuity.

I'm glad RB is coming back, I actually liked the show and so did my son. Peter Cullen voicing Prime didn't hurt much either!

Oh. Well still I don't know how they can tie in to each other because of the totally different tones,settings and characters the shows have that doesnt fit with each other. If Prime and Rescue Bots start showing aspects of each other with the possiblity of the storys connecting each other later on I may accpet that.

I think it's less about Rescue Bots being 'in continuity' with Prime, and more about it not actively conflicting for the most part, with RB concentrating on a different group of 'bots in an isolated area away from the Autobot/Decepticon conflict. Appearances by Optimus or Bumblebee (and their visual designs) are a potential conflict source, but it looks like that will probably be minimal.

Dates! And times! I need to know for both shows! Grrrrrrrrrr!

As a "big boy brands for little boy hands" concept I'm all for this show, but I still think the animation is atrocious and unforgiveable, given the state of animation technology possible today.
havanowoncheese
This is great to hear! I just watched the first episode on the hubs site and i can say that i am glad that it will continue. Its target audience is clear but i like it.

Is there a thread for Rescue Bots discussion?

The toys suck, but I do think the show is actually pretty neat. Will check out the Feb. return of the show to see if it's worth continuing to follow.

Considering I forgot to watch it and had to catch it on Youtube,,, this is good news indeed.

(Seriously for most of the 80's I though the reason why NBC was tops in the Nielsons was because most people set their cable box/VCR to channel 3-4)

Two TF toons at the same time...... Dreams do come true

I'm glad to see Transformers Prime coming back so soon, but not looking forward to Rescue Bots. Didn't like the "sneak peak episode" and dread the abnormal and exaggerated character designs.
Kostya
Eh, it was okay but nothing terribly special.

The animation is off putting and some of the character designs are questionable.

I'm sticking with Prime although this series isn't aimed at me so I shouldn't really be disappointed with it.

The toys don't suck, at least not the transforming ones!
XLightingStormX
i would like more prime! more action >=)
Snark
God, words cannot express how much I would fangasm if the two shows returned with a 2-part crossover.

I wonder how they would pull that crossover off!

I thnk this post has appeared in every thread of every TF cartoon ever.

"Too many animation errors. And Megatron as a gun?! That's just stupid!"
"I don't like the CGI and a rat the same size as a cheetah?"
"The CGI looks cheap and I wish they'd dump the movie designs."

autobot chase sounds like a mix between prowl and barricade. speed demon like barricade, but acts like a dick like prowl. i mean come on, he is gonna right a ticket for going 1 mile above the speed limit? hes a jerk. (yes i know this show is for kids and tries to set good driving habits in place early, but lets be real.)
prowler13
That's o.k. I liked Chase the best. I guess because Prowl has always been my fav. The boys liked blades the best. The show was fine. It seemed like your usual kids show to me and trust me, I've been watching cartoons for a long time now. It's funny tho, my hubby walked in the room and look at the t.v. and said oh crappy animation huh? I was like well it has bright colors. Not everything can look epic that would just cost way too much, maybe one day but not now.
Anywho, I'm totally psyched for Feb not that were getting 2 TF shows at once.
Sprocket
Hooray for the return of the only Transformers cartoon I currently enjoy!

Um, how could anyone but 8 year old's care about this? Lame.

Dude Rescue bots was indeed made for 8 year olds who may be too young for a show like Prime yet.

Yes, and it's aimed at 8 year olds.

So why the hell do you care if it doesn't appeal to you?

An idea: With Optimus still a part of the Decepticon ranks, the rest of Team Prime are looking for something to help them. Going through the computer, they find a data file belonging to Prime that indicates another team of Autobots on Earth. They get in contact with their leader, Heatwave, and question him about his team being on Earth. Things get a little heated between both parties, but an attack by Knock Out and Breakdown forces them to work together.

If the show isn't to your taste, don't watch it. However don't insult those that do enjoy it. IMO, it just makes you look like a dick.

^THIS^ Oddly enough I can't stand the animation for the show, and yet the toys..well...I've got the police car, the tractor, and the helicopter. Love the designs and simplicity in approach! I say bring on more toys as I'll gladly purchase them, but improve the animation...PLEASE!!

Um, quite easily. People have different tastes. As a 20 year old guy, I enjoy the show for what it is. You obviously don't. Many older Transformers fans do, and some don't. Problem? *troll face*

Well, factoring in the First Edition figures, Prime DID come first.

Plus, the RB toys SUCK. They are hardly accurate to the show as it is. Would you compromise toy quality for having them out sooner?

-Higher Detail put into Prime toys then RB toys
-More accuracy and articulation put into Prime Toys then RB toys
-Higher Attention to Detail in Prime Toys
-Production Costs of Prime Toys
-Design and Engineering time for Prime Toys
-Wanting to make sure we got top grade products for the show appealing to older fans
-Larger Size Class in Prime Toys
-Releasing more then one new mold in a wave for Prime toys
-And the fact that Prime Toys are made for older kids/collectors/fans, while RB toys are made for younger kids.

Pick your answer, or take them all, either way works.

Frankly the show isn't that bad, and it does appeal to kids more than adults, but, that's a good thing isn't it?

Parents aren't going to want to introduce younger kids to a Franchise that has characters being brutally stabbed and killed in just episode 1, this is a way to bring younger children into the franchise, and get them to love the characters like we did the original G1, or Animated, or Beast Wars Characters we loved as well.

It's a show aimed at younger kids, like it or not, it's not made for our demographic, I'm just going to watch and enjoy what I can from it.

Plus, having Cullen included in Rescue Bots, at least shows they're trying to give the younger tikes a proper Transformer experience

Toy quality? It's made for 4-5 year old children, many of whom, though I am sure some are capable of this, aren't able to transform an average Deluxe class toy without parent aid, so it makes sense for Hasbro to make larger, easier to transform toys for the younger kids to use, it's just marketing, save the complex items for higher ages, and give younger ages easier and bulkier toys.

Though, show accuracy is one thing I do wish they could alter, but that could come in future releases, either way, I'm happy with my mini-Prime on my shelf.

What is "What everyone who's not a fan says about EVERY Transformers show ever made", Alex?
Spunky
I'm glad. I really like this show and I thought I would care less about it. I don't like it as much as Prime but I was very surprised at how well it was done for a kiddy show. It actually isn't that kiddy and looks to be in the same continuity as Prime is. Or at least compatible to get the older fans to watch it as well.

Speaking of compatible, I was looking at the Autobot writing in the show and it's the exact same writing as in Transformers Prime. And the Transformers Prime writing looks the same as the alien writing in the X-Files episode, "Biogenesis". Interesting.....
