Robots In Disguise
23 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a long time fan of the Transformers this one is perhaps the most underrated series and often times the forgotten one.

Transformers: Robots In Disguise is the first Anime Transformers series to be dubbed for an American network.

The story line features Optimus Prime and his Autobots facing off against Megatron leader of the Predacons and Decepticons as they battle on Earth.

For this series the Autobots Include: Optimus Prime, The Autobot Brothers Sideburn,X-Brawn and Prowl, Ultra Magnus, Team Bullet Train: Railspike, Rapid Run, Midnight Express Spy Changers: Hot Shot, R.E.V., Crosswise, W.A.R.S., Ironhide, and Mirage.

The Decepticons and Predacons include: Megatron, Sky Byte, Slapper, Gas Skunk, Dark Scream. Decepticons: Scourge, Mega-Octane, Armorhide, Movor, Ro-Tor and Rollbar who together form Ruination.

The series was taken from Car Robots in Japan and dub to Transformers Robots In Disguise. The Animation style is hand drawn and each character design is very good with attention to detail for the Transformers. The backgrounds are creative as well.

The voice acting is entertaining and with a good cast such as Neil Kaplan,Daniel Riordan, Daran Norris, Peter Spellos, Steve Blum, Kim Strauss, Robert Axelrod, Michael McConnohie, Bob Papenbrook, Keith Diamond and many more.

The cast does a interesting job with bringing the characters to life for the US fans and they each bring something special to the Transformers.

The Series is also known for it humor and sometimes it reminds me of Looney Tunes which isn't a bad thing at all since I love Looney Tunes.

It just a shame the series was only for one season and it is under looked when it should be given it's own DVD by now.

It's more than meets the eye and an entertaining series too it feels like Transformers
