My Take on the DVD
As a fan of the transformers this was another great series, that is geared toward the younger watchers (in my opinion). I really enjoyed this series and found that the episodes were well written and that when I had my daughters watch them with me, they were engrossed in what was going on.  Some of the animation is not as sophisticated as some of the other Transformer series', but for me that was ok, as it was geared toward a younger audience. All-in-all I was impressed with the episodes that I saw here and they only add to the line of other Transformer series' that are out there now. If you enjoy the transformers, you and your kids will also love the new Rescue Bots Series!
