Transformers Robots In Disguise is One of the Top rated shows on Cartoon Network.
The second half of the first season is now on the air.
Video preview: new allies, new villians, new threats, new enemies...fallen hero.
Transition from Prime to RiD: wanted Bumblebee to be center. They didn't want Optimus Prime and other major characters because they are too god-like. Wanted it to be a continuity of PRIME and have a G1 similar look with lighter show, not as dark as PRIME
Constance, her first voice acting role.
They are blessed to have fantastic writing for the show.
(long general discussion about acting)
Questions and Answers
+ Continuing developing new Autobot characters. New Dinobot might show up, it was in the clip shown.
+ Kids from Prime was originally written in at one point but decided to leave them out. Would have been older version of Jack, etc.
+ We will see some familiar faces from PRIME in Season 2.
+ No official word on season 2 happening, or not.
+ Special clip showing at the end of panel - SPOILER!!!
PANEL OVER - Thanks for reading!

The last of three known Team Combiner sets for the Robots in Disguise line has hit brick and mortar retail. Galvatronus, comprised of Cyclonus, Riotgear, Skyjack, Cyberwarp, and Treadshock was spotted at Toys R Us in Fort Wayne, IN by Rookbartley. Robots in Disguise is expected to be ending with the wrap up of the Combiner Force imprint, though there are still a few toys that have yet to reach retail, including two Crash Combiners. Whether any or all of these remaining products ever see distribution in the US is a big question mark right now. Keep reading to see a photo of Galvatronus on shelf!
Amazon has posted a new set of images for the Robots In Disguise: Combiner Force Legion-class Twinferno! This is the second toy of the new character, and it's looking pretty good! We don't have any info on expected availability of this version at the moment, but we do have the product description. Keep reading to see!
The last four episodes of Robots In Disguise: Combiner Force are now titled! Thanks to the website TWCC, we now know the titles - and one description - for the last round of RID. Oddly that one description isn't for the first episode in the list, but the second - but it should hopefully give a look at the direction that the series will be heading in for the home stretch. Keep reading for the details!
Via the McDonald's Happy Meal website, we've got the promo image for the next Happy Meal theme coming to McDonald's locations in the US. Robots in Disguise will be making its third appearance alongside a hamburger and apple chips, featuring character figures of Bumblebee, Optimus, Strongarm, and Grimlock, as well as small masks of each of the characters. As is the typical process, the promotion runs with a My Little Pony option for kids more interested in that than robots. We've copied the Transformers promo image, click through to take a look!
Imagine unleashing the power of multiple Transformers figures at once to create a single awesome Team Combiner super robot figure! Team Combiner multi-figure packs feature Autobot or Decepticon teams from the Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series.
