Episode 95: Face of the Nijika

95 Nijika

Say hello to the Nijika, a robot geisha/astronaut. It’s a pretty wild episode this time, and we are joined by the first of our All-Star guests who will be helping us countdown to the end of the original Transformers cartoon!

Our guest this episode is Dave Stone-Robb! He started the podcast network Ear Trumpet Audio with his wife, which features a lot of great shows including The Reelist where he’s counting down the AFI’s Top 100 American Movies. I’ve been a guest on there twice, and Adam has been on it as well!

Dave also has a pretty new podcast called By the Podcast of Grayskull where he and his co-host are watching every episode of the original He-Man cartoon in… chronological order. Hmmm, might have to have a word about that.

Anyhow, for his Insane Moment Dave chose the fact that the Nijika is not only smaller than we expected, but seems to get even smaller at times:

Kevin was very happy to get a good look at Rodimus Prime’s very own Sad Trailer!

Adam decided he needed two Insane Moments this time, so up first is Sky Lynx vomiting the Autobots out of his mouth:

And his second was when Perceptor’s stolen insignia was placed on the Nijika’s head and became her face… somehow:

Only five more episodes left!

Episode 82: Fight or Flee

Sorry for the absence, but Adam got MARRIED! YAY! And we’re back with a pretty good episode. Listen to it here:

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was a pretty great kick:

And Kevin’s Most Insane Moment came when the Decepticons blew some stuff up:

We promise we’ll actually get back on schedule now, so see you in two weeks!

Episode 78: Forever Is a Long Time Coming

It’s a pretty great episode this time, and written by a well-known comic book writer as well!

Kevin’s Insane Moment was this cool shot of the Aerialbots splitting up:

Adam’s Insane Moment was Ramhorn, one of the tapes living inside Blaster, absolutely destroying some Sharkticons:

We also address last week’s Gobotological at the end. See you in 2 weeks!

Episode 75: Dark Awakening

The cartoon takes us to some pretty dark places this week, and we happily follow those threads to their conclusions. You can listen to it here:

Both of our Most Insane Moments involved the Dinobots this week! Kevin’s was when Sludge saved Snarl’s life by pushing him out of the way:


Adam picked the moment when Grimlock became furious, but it kind of looked like he was just dancing:


We’re now officially three fourths of the way through the original show, so join us next time as we start the home stretch!

Episode 74: Chaos

The show bounces back after last episode’s lackluster showing with a story that centers on the Autobot Kup. You can listen here:

Any episode where Grimlock puts his arms on someone’s shoulders and shakes them is all right by me:


As for Insane Moments, Adam really enjoyed Kup dropping these keys and abandoning these prisoners:


Kevin’s Insane Moment was Predaking producing a lightsaber and slicing off this rock:


Next episode has a title that we are very interested in, so let’s hope it’s a great one! See you then!

Episode 70: The Five Faces of Darkness Part 3

We start to really get into some interesting stuff this episode and it even has a new animated opening, which is pretty cool. You can listen here:

Kevin Most Insane Moment was just Galvatron transforming, because what is up with his gun? He throws it away and then grows a new one?


But Adam’s Most Insane Moment might take the cake. Galvatron fires into a storm on Jupiter (or maybe one of its moons?) and… this happens:


Stick around to the end to hear us thank some fans and give a couple of shout outs.

And we’re almost definitely moving to a bi-weekly schedule for a bit. Hope everyone will stick with us until we can get back on a truly weekly schedule. Thanks!

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!
