Coming to DVD from executive producer Jeff Kline, Hasbro and SHOUT! Factory comes the animated TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS.
The film tells the story of an island off the coast of Maine. Griffin Rock looks like a normal island but, like its inhabitants, there is more than meets the eye. On the island are the Rescue Bots – Chase, Heatwave, Blades and Boulder, transformers that are learning about humanity.
A young man named Cody is helping the bots by being with a family of first responders that include a police chief, firefighter, pilot and engineer. There training shows them how to keep people safe and learn the true meaning of what a hero is.
FINAL WORD: This film is an awesome way for families to sit together and watch how these wonderful people take care of us. The opportunity for children to experience their love of Transformers with the lessons of what it takes to be a hero, themselves is truly fun.
This DVD is specifically geared toward the younger generation of Transformer fans. Optimus Prime gave these Rescue Bots their orders to protect and service the human race. What a fantastic way to teach children valuable life lessons through entertainment, heart and giggles.
The vocal talent includes Levar Burton, Lacey Chabert, Steve Blum, Maurice LeMarche and Peter Cullen as the voice of Optimus Prime.
TUBS OF POPCORN: I give TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS four tubs of popcorn out of five. This is really a great family video filled with action and animation while, at the same time, teaching valuable lessons to children.
Hasbro and SHOUT! Factory have come together to bring a DVD worth owning into a family collection that can be shared for years to come. The episodes include “Under Pressure”, “Hot Shots”, “Flobsters on Parade”, The Alien Invasion of Griffin Rock” and “Four Bots and a Baby”.
There is also bonus DVD content with the premier episode of “Family of Heroes” and printable coloring sheets. Currently, TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS is airing on HUB TV in the United States and Treehouse in Canada.
In the end – roll to the rescue!
