Episode 68: The Five Faces of Darkness Part 1

We’re officially into Season 3 this week at the start of a 5 parter that picks up straight from the events of the movie. So, spoilers for the movie abound, obviously. Listen to it here:

We did have a lot of fun, starting with seeing Spike and Daniel again, along with Carly:

And later on Rodimus Prime and Grimlock did some awkward spying:

Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was when Spike just… disappeared:

And Adam’s was new character Outback (who we LOVE) throwing this bomb thing a very long way:

We’re glad to be back and we hope you’re glad to see us!

Episode 66: Transformers The Movie Part 1 of 2

We’re finally back!

The long hiatus is over and we’re back with the much-anticipated animated movie. This week we’re doing our audio commentary track for the first half of the film, along with an intro and outro (including our weekly segments). You can listen to it here:

We had a blast recording this episode, and you can probably tell by how long the gifs are this week. Adam’s Insane Moment was the battle between Soundwave and Blaster’s minions, with a dash of Perceptor for good measure:

66-casette-fight

Kevin’s Insane Moment was the Dinobots going all out against Devastator (how crazy is it that Adam passed on the Dinobots moment!):

Join us next week for Part 2, and then we’ll release just the full commentary the week after. And if you haven’t already, subscribe to the show!

Japan Special: Scramble City with the Hosts of Transmissions

It’s a very special episode this week as we review Scramble City, the Japanese episode intended to bridge Season 2 and the animated movie. On the show this week we are excited to be joined by three of the four hosts of the Transmissions Podcast , Darryl, Charles, and Jeremy. Our conversation over Skype might not be the best audio quality we’ve ever had, but the content should make up for it since these guys know WAY more about the Transformers than we do!

Listen to it here:

Download it here: Episode 65.1 Scramble City

Since the episode is in Japanese, don’t expect audio clips for the dialogue this week, but get ready for five whole insane moments!

First, Darryl really enjoyed when Metroplex blasted the Decepticon Combiners with a huge shot from his gun:

65-1 Metroplex Fires

Then Charles wanted us to get into the surprise appearance of Trypticon at the end of the episode:

65-1 Trypticon Appears

Then Jeremy pointed out that Wild Rider (the Decepticon Combaticon) joining Superion as his leg was pretty nuts:

65-1 Wild Rider Slips In

Adam just wanted to have a gif of the big Superion transformation sequence:

65-1 Form Superion

And finally Kevin loved the bit where Scramble Power was on full display:

65-1 Scramble Power

Thanks again to the Transmissions guys! Be sure to check out their podcast, and we hope to be back in two weeks with the first half of our audio commentary for the animated movie!

Episode 56: The Key to Vector Sigma Part 2

We wrap up the story about the creation of the Stunticons by also creating the Aerialbots! Ten (or maybe twelve?!?!) new characters in just two episodes? Sign us up! You can listen to it here:

We mentioned Sad Trailer getting slammed, so here’s that screen shot:

56 Motormaster T-Bones Sad Trailer

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was this fight between Motormaster and Slingshot:

56 Motormaster Vs Slingshot

And Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was the nonsense that happened when Omega Supreme transforms:

56 Omega Supreme's Transforming Nonsense

Where did the rest of his body come from?!?!

See you next week!

Episode 50: Prime Target

It’s a milestone episode this week, and the cartoon really comes through for us. You’ll get to meet a couple of new human characters that immediately become our favorites of the entire series! You can listen here:

Download it here: Episode 50 Prime Target

We promised that we’d have the three billboards from the episode up for you to check out, so feast your eyes:

Billboard 1 Billboard 2 Billboard 3

We also mentioned a scene where Sad Trailer appears to have a jet and is flying through the air, so here’s the proof that we aren’t entirely insane (yet):

For Kevin’s Most Insane Moment, he chose the torture of the Autobots because, frankly, it didn’t really seem that bad:

Autobot Torture

For his, Adam chose the scene where, well, THIS happened:

Creamy Cream Hands and Blaster

And with that, we leave you for a week!

Episode 49: Auto-Bop

We re-visit the alternate reality from episode 41: Making Tracks (the one where the Autobots crashed on Manhattan and now operate from the back of Sparkplug’s shop) and even Raoul comes back! This time around, though, it’s all about the music!

You can listen here:

Kevin just put together a bunch of dancing scenes for his Insane Moment, because the dancing on this show is always so… weird:

Dancing

Adam, on the other hand, went for the action. When the two boomboxes go at it, we all win! It’s Soundwave vs Blaster!

Soundwave VS Blaster

See you next week for the big Five-Oh!

Podcast Episode 44: Quest for Survival

Kevin goes on record as this being his favorite episode of the cartoon so far, and it is pretty great. I mean, check out this shot:

Robot Insecticide

Seriously, that is a can of Robot Insecticide. You can listen to the show here:

Download it here: Episode 44 Quest for Survival

Adam absolutely loved his Most Insane Moment since it involves both Megatron AND Soundwave laughing at Starscream:

Starscream Shoots Himself

You might want to watch the cartoon and/or listen to the podcast first before looking at Kevin’s Most Insane Moment because it does include some spoilers, but he just couldn’t resist showing how the Autobots finally defeated the Morphobots:

Autobots Defeating the Morphobots

Join us next week as we crack open Season 2 Volume 2!
