Until now, however, it’s gotten only token treatment in the home video market. Someone must finally be in charge who grew up with this movie, because it’s getting a digitally remastered […]

Review: “Transformers: Robots in Disguise: A New Autobot Mission” Accomplishes Its Goal

by Neo Yion October 23, 2015
As I stated in my previous review, Transformers: Robots in Disguise carries a lighthearted charm with the promise of weighty foreshadowing and epic storytelling. I was excited to see the antics Bumblebee and his crew would come across. Transformers: Robots in Disguise’s first DVD release contains the first five episodes and provides just as much […]

Review: “Transformers: Robots in Disguise”: Plight Of The Bumblebee

by Grant Whiteon March 13, 2015
Back in 2010 I reviewed the premiere episodes of Transformers: Prime, Hasbro’s then latest entry in the franchise and a focal point of the ‘Aligned continuity’ that would attempt to focus on a specially constructed long term universe.

Review: “Transformers: Robots in Disguise” Has a Lot of Spark

by Neo Yion March 13, 2015

While each Transformers show seems to reinvent the franchise, Robots in Disguise has the honor of being a direct sequel to Prime. While the latter was an epic space opera, Robots in Disguise excludes the melodrama in favor of peppy, feel-good fun. Those who expect […]
