Transformers : Robots in Disguise – A New Mission DVD Review And Giveaway

Transformers : Robots in Disguise – A New Mission is available on DVD and Digital Download from today - 28th March - just in time for the Easter holidays. Rated PG this contains 7 episodes, which is almost 2 1/2 hours of the of the latest Cartoon Network Transformers series.


This is the first release for the Transformers: Robots In Disguise series, and is set years after the Prime series. Earth has been peaceful and the Transformers are just living out Transformer lives.

In the first 2-part Story 'Pilot', Bumblebee receives an urgent message from Optimus Prime and gathers together the Autobots to return to Earth and rescue the planet from the Decepticons, who have escaped when their prison ship crash landed.

Bumblebee has a cadet with him, Strongarm, and as she had captured a prisoner who is shackled to her, he also goes to Earth. The prisoner, Sideswipe, actually isn't really such a bad guy, and helps them in their battle against the escaped Decepticons before leaving.


It's great to see strong female characters in Transformers, even better that my boys didn't see it as in any way remarkable. She was a bit annoying by always asking questions, although I suppose as the rookie this was inevitable.

The series is otherwise still very familar to how it was 20 years ago, but the CGI animation is considerably clearer and sharper, scenery is better lit so the overall effect is not so gloomy, and there are now more characters. Transformers lends itself very well to developments in animation, so I think will hopefully only ever benefit.

The action remains the same fast-paced huge scale battles, with witty asides and real personality to the characters, and Transformers : Robots In Disguise - A New Mission kept my 7 year old especially entertained throughout.

A New Mission contains the following 7 episodes:

  • Pilot - Episode 1
  • Pilot - Episode 2
  • Trust Exercises
  • More Than Meets The Eye
  • W.W.O.D?
  • As The Kospego Commands!
  • Collect ‘Em All!

  4. Affirmations and maybe they would help bring Peace. I believe I am a Pacifist. I'd rather shower others with love, empathy, kindness etc. Being female I maybe would consider showering others with Rose petals.

    It is the boys in the family who have an interest in Transformers. I can recall my nephews many years ago enjoying playing with these toys. All the family were taken with the fact that the toys transformed, which provided more Funtime for my nephew.
