Shout! Factory has listed a pair of new DVDs for the two ongoing Transformers animated shows.
First up is a DVD for Robots in Disguise. Titled “Mission Discovery“, this DVD collects five episodes of the show from various points of the first season – no, they are not in order! The five episodes are True Colors, Adventures in Bumblebee Sitting, Even Robots Have Nightmares, Some Body, Any Body, and The Trouble with Fixit. It’s a good spread of episodes which gives most of the main cast a focus episode on the disk, if you’re looking for a sampler of the series. It’s due out on February 9, 2016.
Next up is a DVD for Rescue Bots, titled “Adventures in Time and Space“. Like the Robots in Disguise DVD, there’s five episodes on the disk from across the whole run of the show’s three seasons, which is par for the course with Shout’s Rescue Bots DVDs. The five episodes on this disk are It’s a Bot Time, Unfinished Business, Switcheroo, Time After Time, and The Last of Morocco. Yes, those familiar with the show might spot that there’s the first half of a two-part story on there – perhaps Shout! will edit out the cliffhanger ending? For those who are fans of Tim Curry, his character, Dr. Morocco, is featured in some of the episodes on this set and is referenced in others. This DVD is due out on February 23, 2016.
