It is expected that the comic will continue in the same format as the highly successfully RiD and Rescue-bots comics with freebies, activities, games, puzzles and a comic version of each episode of the cartoon.

The magazine is aimed at the pre-school audience and is based on the animated show which averages 17,000 viewers across 600 plays on Tiny Pop; 76% above the channel average. The show is on par with My Little Pony for the station where it contirbutes 1/5th of the total views with 1.5 million children having viewed it since it's launch.
Danny Morris, Signature Publishing's Managing Director stated that "The Transformers franchise just keeps growing, with the launch of the latest blockbuster movie in June, while younger fans are egaging with the hit animated cartoon Rescue Bots" adding that "We are therefore delighted and honoured to be the first publisher, worldwide, to launch a standalone magazine for this fantastic extension to Hasbro's Transformers brand where, as always, storytelling is at its heart. With the viewing figures and toy sales for Transformers Rescue Bots speaking for themselves, this new magazine is sure to be a huge success!"
When Titan Publishing stopped the UK Transformers: Age of Extinction comic book many thought that it may be a few years until another UK Transformers comic would hit the shelves, well that all changed last Friday when Signature Publishing released the first issue in a new monthly UK Transformers comic called Transformers: Robots In Disguise. The comic will slowly reprint the IDW RiD stories along with new exclusive content for the UK market. Issue 1 is still available in stores right now and comes with a free disk shooting Bumblebee.
Here's a little more information and quotes on what you can expect from the comic book.
The “interactive” magazines features a Transformers toy, exclusive links to unlockable Transformers brand app content and a 20-page comic strip story in every issue.
“We are absolutely delighted to be given the opportunity to publish the official magazine for this iconic brand that targets a new generation of Transformers brand fans,” confirmed Signature’s Managing Director, Danny Morris.
