Okay, Autobot fans, can you possibly be any more ready? For the first time on a Special Collectible DVD at Walmart from Hasbro Studios and SHOUT! Kids Factory are the adventures from Cartoon Network with “Transformers: Robots in Disguise — A New Autobot Mission.”

Our mechanical heroes are back with a new mission to help save the people of Earth from a new faction of the evil Decepticons. Bumblebee has been leading the group for several years but the new threat is calling him to become even braver.

Putting together a group including Sideswipe, Strongarm, Grimlock and Fixit – Bumblebee must listen to Optimus Prime if the Earth and its inhabitants are to be saved.

Once again fans of the Transformers are going to be thrilled to be able to continue on with the saga of these incredible characters. There is everything we have all come to love about the Autobots in this DVD collection.

Personally a huge fan of Bumblebee – it is great to see him take on the leadership roll. The storyline is fantastic with humor, fun and a story about the sacrifice that is required sometimes to do good for others. Then again we have always known that about our transforming heroes.

Hasbro Studios is an iconic brand with some of the best in animation and family programming with MY LITTLE PONY, and LITTLEST PET SHOP. Since its formation in 2009, Hasbro Studios has received seven Daytime Emmy’s!

SHOUT! Factory brings the best to fans offering up feature films, classic television series, animation and specials. For more of what they have to offer go to www.shoutfactory.com.

TUBS OF POPCORN: I give “Transformers: Robots in Disguise — A New Autobot Mission” four tubs of popcorn out of five. I leave one tub for the next fantastic set of episodes that I know has to be in the works by SHOUT! Kids Factory and Hasbro. The animation is, as always, brilliantly done giving our epic characters a strong feel.

I just love the fact that these iconic characters have been around since my adult children were kids. That says amazing things about the reach of the franchise to kids and adults. Yes, this adult as well as I get a little giddy every time I get near Bumblebee at Comic Con International. It has become a tradition to be in his presence!

The DVD includes five action-packed episodes with Pilot Part 1, Pilot Part 2, Trust Exercises, More Than Meets the Eye and W.W.O.D. There is over 110 minutes of animation with the bonus feature A Look Behind the Scenes.

The new Special Collectable DVD arrives at Walmart this Tuesday with all the new Transformer characters from SHOUT! Kids Factory. Don’t walk – run to get yours and set yourself up for one heck of a marathon!

In the end — there has always been more to them than meets the eye!
