I recently received another compilation DVD for Transformers Rescue Bots. This is a show that my daughter and I enjoy watching together and my son is just starting to get into. We’ve collected all of the toys and are eagerly awaiting the dinosaur themed episodes that I hope are coming (based on what I’ve seen of the toys). But to tide us over we have this DVD which collects five episodes from the series with a mystery theme for each one. While the collector in me is thoroughly frustrated in not having a complete season on DVD and getting a DVD with a mixture of episodes from season 1 and season 2 on it I still like having the episodes for the kids to watch. The kids aren’t paying attention to continuity that much at this time anyway. Continue reading Review: Transformers Rescue Bots: Mystery Rescue DVD
We received a copy of Transformers Rescue Bots: Heroes on the Scene to watch and review. Here are our thoughts.
Transformers Rescue Bots was one of the first cartoons that my daughter and I bonded over. The Rescue Bot Version of Optimus Prime was Eva’s first Transformers followed closely by Arcee from Transformers Prime. While she enjoyed Prime once in a while when the stories were about Miko and they weren’t too scary, she has continued to hold a place in her heart for the Rescue Bots. These are fun stories revolving around a family of first responders who handle all sorts of situations around a technologically advanced island town called Griffin Rock. They are aided in their jobs by four young Autobots, Heatwave, Chase, Blades and Boulder.
The first season has been off the air for a while now and second season has begun so I am glad that we have this DVD with various episodes. What I am not impressed with is that the episodes are out of chronological order. I hope that a full season 1 DVD comes out so that we can have all episodes in order in one place. There is a through story and continuity to the series and I like my continuity.
The episodes are fun ones filled with humor, references to Transformers history and have fun action scene for kids. The main character, Cody is a young boy who helps his family and the bots work together. He is very smart and wants nothing more than to help on rescue missions. Occasionally, however he needs the rescuing more often than not. It is a very good series for young kids and a great way to introduce them to the Transformers brand. Pick up Transformers Rescue Bots: Heroes On The Scene on March 18 or pre-order it from Amazon.com. Continue reading DVD Review: TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: Heroes on the Scene
