    03/20/18: Legacy brands, spinoffs bolster Discovery Family lineup

    Given the weird episode order, I'm guessing Cyberverse is going to be a Netflix show.

    I\'m sure RBA will be great for the little tykes. My son grew up with RB, and is aged out now, but it got him into Transformers. It\'s just kind of sad they seemingly are putting more effort into this series than the mainline series (Cyberverse).  No word on a start date, and nothing I\'ve heard makes me excited for it.

    Maybe. Or it could just be a YouTube series. Hasbro and Mattel both do shows directly there now. Young Toys has been doing it with their little kid's robot shows in South Korea for awhile now.

    Of course, CN might still be the home. If Hasbro wanted out of the pre-dawn ghetto and get into a prime viewing time slot, they'd have to work around CN demands and would only get 15 minutes a week.

    2 things can happen now.
    May be Rescue Bots can get a complete series dvd set.
    And may be one day we can get a real Transformers cartoon again that's not for 5 year old's.

    I don't think we will get our own TF series for many years, the Machinema Web series is probably the best we will get in terms of a series for 12 and up. It seems as though hasbro has forgotten or disregarded it's older audience, the 12 and up group etc.

    I was thinking the same thing, his design looks nice too.

    I don't understand the hate for this show it's almost animated style and has a good story.

    The show is getting a whole new generation on board, I grew up on G1 and RB is great.

    I'm hoping we get a new Hotshot in the new generations lines.

    The old one was a pain I hear.

    Back on topic; I'm enjoying Rescue Bots, and I can't wait to watch Rescue Bots Academy. I'm hoping for the best for this show.

    The 11-minute episode length is a little longer than Hasbro's other YouTube series, like Chomp Squad and Equestria Girls.

    I suspect it'll join Stretch Armstrong on Netflix.

    Reasons.

    I like Rescue Bots. Hope to watch this show with my kid when he's old enough to understand it.

    Rescue Bots are awesome, I'm so glad it's continuing. Anything to keep an open door back to the Aligned universe.

    Sweet. Not a big fan of rescue bots, but I love it when Hasbro does Armada homages.
