March is shaping-up to be a great month for TRANSFORMERS fans of the... smaller variety. On Saturday, March 1, TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS will return to The Hub Network for it's second season, kicking off the action with two back-to-back new episodes at 1pm ET/10am PT. In “Road Trip”,  a tricky transporter takes Cody for a crazy ride and Kade takes on a high-flying rescue mission. In “Sky Forest," Cody and Frankie find themselves going head to head in a town inventor contest, leading to a jealous divide between the two. To make matters worse, Frankie's contest entry gets out of control, not only threatening her friendship with Cody and the Bots, but the safety of the entire island. But the action doesn't stop there, as Shout! Factory Kids has announced TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: HEROES ON THE SCENE for a March 18 DVD release.

RESCUE BOTSFeaturing five episodes: The Lost Bell, You’ve Been Squilshed, Little White Lies, Shake Up and Rescue Boy; HEROES ON THE SCENE follows the Rescue Bots as they go undercover to protect the quiet little town of Griffin Rock from the green ooze known as the Squilsh, recover treasure stolen by pirates and help Griffin Rock recover from an earthquake! Along with their human friends, the Burns family, the Rescue Bots help keep people safe, and along the way they learn what it really means to be a hero!

This new collection and other great Rescue Bots items (including the Hasbro toys!) can be ordered now from (my affiliate) Amazon, where your purchase can help support this site:
