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!

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 62: Starscream’s Brigade

Starscream tries, once again, to take over as leader of the Decepticons with predictable results. On the other hand, say hello to the Combaticons!

As for Insane Moments… Well, there aren’t any this week. While there was some wild stuff in the episode, none of it really rose to the level for either of us that the Insane Moments have been lately. So, rather than a gif of just whatever, we skipped them this week. Hopefully there will be something truly crazy next week. See you then!

Episode 57: Masquerade

The Stunticons continue to be front and center this week (while everyone seems to have forgotten that the Aerialbots even exist) and the Autobots decide that cosplay is the answer! You can listen to it here:

Adam pointed out that some pencil sketches didn’t get erased in this shot:

57 City Museum Pencil Sketches

And his Insane Moment was when Warpath punched right through one of the Stunticons:

Kevin’s Insane Moment was when Optimus Prime and Motormaster had a head-on collision:

57 Optimus and Motormaster Head On Collision

We’ll see you all next week as we get closer and closer to the movie!

Episode 52: Triple Takeover

This week spotlights Blitzwing and Astrotrain, the triple changers, as they try to takeover the Decepticons. So, the title of the episode makes total sense.

Here is the image of the Highway Maze we mentioned:

Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was when Blitzwing scored points by shooting a football at the scoreboard:

Blitzwing Scores 2 Points

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was one of the longest we’ve had, and involves Blitzwing clearly murdering Autobots, even though they were fine at the end of the episode:

Blitzwing Kills Autobots

See you all next week when literally anything could happen!

Podcast Episode 45: The Secret of Omega Supreme

We get a mediocre episode that focuses on a very cool character this week, but does have some very fun stuff in it. You can listen here:

It even has a surprise appearance (even a surprise to the Decepticons around him) of Sideswipe:

Sideswide Make Surprise Appearance

Adam’s Insane Moment was when Optimus Prime transformed in a weird way to hide Sad Trailer from us:

Optimus Hides Sad Trailer

And Kevin’s Insane Moment was (spoiler alert) the birth of the Asteroid Beast, which might be the weirdest creature we’ve seen yet:

Birth of the Asteroid Beast

See you all next week!

Podcast Episode 40: The Core

If you like Devastator, then you are in luck this week. The Constructicons take center-stage as Megatron tries to drill to the Earth’s core. You can listen to it here:

Kevin picked some Autobots suddenly developing Jet Hands as his Most Insane Moment:

Autobot Hand Jets

Adam went with this goofily animated shot of Devastator throwing a rock at the Autobots (where does the rock GO?):

Devastator Throws a Rock

See you next week!

Podcast Episode 28: The Master Builder

A couple of Autobots have a dumb idea while Optimus Prime decides to become a basketball expert this week, and you can listen here:

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was this trick move by Optimus Prime:

And Kevin’s was when Prime passed the ball to Spike:

See you next week, when the Autobots hopefully learn a new sport!
