For awhile, there were rumors floating around the internet that there would be all new CGI animated shows for TF:RID! What a bummer that turned out to be false! The shows listed below are not exactly fan favorites, being little more than translated show from Japan with decent animation and plots that're a little too corny for most collectors.
Eventually, like other episode guides on Unicron.com we'll include a 'grade' system of each plot w/ the usual scale. We also need to extend thanks to the following sites used as reference in compiling this list: transfandom.com , bwtf & adequate.com/TF

Although released in 2000, the only Japanese Car Robots toy not included in the US Robots in Disguise toyline was Brave Maximus. Known as Fortress Maximus in the RiD cartoon, the toy does not meet US safety laws anymore.
Robots in Disguise was launched in the summer of 2001 and promised a return to the more "G1 roots" of Transformers. While these toys were arguably some of the best TF figures ever released in the U.S., their connection to the rest of the TF universe remains debatable. (See the media section to the left for a discussion of how the RID storyline may or may not coincide with other TF stories.) The toys consisted primarily of re-issued versions of the Japanese Transformers line, "Carrobots." However there were exceptions. Figures like the the second wave Spychangers, Bruticus... are examples of figures entirely new to the U.S. line.
Most of the "bad guys" of R.I.D. were Predacons. However, for the first time in quite a few years, Hasbro released all new "Decepticons." Shown above to the right: Mega-Octane and the others below: Armorhide, Movar, Rollbar, and Ro-tor, unite to form, Ruination.
