Optimus Prime lives again. The energy of the Matrix has been released. Peace reigns on Cybertron. This is how we knew the end of the original Transformers 1980s animated series. But this “Generation 1” era didn’t simply end where most fans across the globe thought it did! In Japan, the series continued from that point, beginning with the arrival of the Headmasters, a new breed of Transformers. Now, Shout! Factory has paired with Hasbro to bring this series to North America for the very first time, in a 4 DVD box set called Transformers: The Japanese Collection Headmasters. The collection comes home on July 5th. Read on for more details!

When The Hub premiered on our television screens, it graced us with old cartoons that we know and love. We’re talking G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, Conan the Adventurer, Men in Black: The series, Batman Beyond, Transformers Generation 1, and others. But they didn’t limit their offerings to 80’s and 90’s cartoons — instead, the Discovery and Hasbro venture broadcast original animated toons like: G.I. Joe: Renegades, Transformers: Prime, My Little Pony, and much more. To add to that list of new original animated shows the Hub announced its 2011-2012 program line up — even including a Warren Buffet animated series. Take a look at the Hub’s line-up for 2011-2012

Transformers: Rescue Bots roll out on The Hub

Transformers: Rescue Bots roll out on The Hub

Back in October, The Hub (a collaboration between Discovery and Hasbro) brought an entirely new era to the Transformers franchise with Transformers Prime. The CG look and classic voice actors helped merge the iconic retro feel of the 1980s toon with the modern animated take in the films. Now, The Hub is rolling out a second Transformers toon in the brand, Transformers: Rescue Bots. Inspired by Hasbro’s brand, the show features a group of Autobots, too young to work alongside Optimus Prime and protect humanity with his group. Instead, they team with a human family of first responders to achieve their just-as-lofty goals. With a focus on teamwork and heroism, this new series is a perfect compliment to the original toon. Look for it later this year, on The Hub.
