Hasbro Studios has posted a Sales Guide to their website which details their entire catalogue to date. This also includes images and info from the as-yet unreleased Transformers: Cyberverse
and Rescue Bots Academy
series! We learn quite a few new things, including the specifics of the length and duration of both shows - and get our first look at the Academy
cast. Keep reading for details.
Bumblebee is on a critical mission where lives are at stake! Only, he can’t remember what it is? It’s a good thing his best friend Windblade has found him to help repair his damaged memory chips. With each recovered memory, Bumblebee rediscovers his past adventures on Cybertron before coming to Earth. He relives fun moments when he played Cybertronian sports with his friends, and even tragic ones that would change his life. His past will shape him into becoming the hero we know today. As each memory is repaired, another clue comes to light that will lead them both to complete their shared mission to save their friends and Earth… however, the Decepticons are hot on their heels and time is running out.
The series is aimed at 6-11 year-olds, will be delivered in 2018, and the first season will be 18 episodes of 11 minutes each.
A group of young Bots fresh from Cybertron (Hot Shot, Whirl, Medix, Hoist and Wedge), have the honor of being the first-ever class to enroll in Earth’s Rescue Bot Training Academy and learn how to become Earth heroes through hands-on experience.
Rescue Bots Academy
will be delivered in 2019, is aimed at 3-5 year-olds, and is scheduled for 52 episodes of 11 minutes each.
So, Transformers is going to look pretty different over the next few years! And, while Cyberverse
is being written with 6-11 year-olds in mind, it's important to remember that that's true of a lot of your most fondly-remembered Transformers series. It's all going to come down to how
it's written... and we won't know that until it premieres. Fingers crossed for a good one!
