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 60: Cosmic Rust

There’s an infectious disease bothering the Transformers this week and somehow the Statue of Liberty gets involved. Listen to it here:

We had a very brief visit from some old friends, as mentioned on the show:

Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was Starscream and Rumble really failing to accomplish anything:

60 Starscream and Rumble Can't Do Anything

And Adam’s Insane Moment was Megatron’s hand falling off!

We also had a big announcement at the end of the episode this week, and we played an ad for this podcast:

See you next week!

Episode 58: Trans-Europe Express

It’s a race to the bottom this week as Megatron has another awful plan and we basically hated the episode. But we still managed to have some fun! Listen to it here:

Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was when Bumblebee was able to effortlessly steal something important right out of Megatron’s hand:

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was very long and involved Motormaster chasing down Jazz and… murdering him?

UPDATE: Thanks to listener AsherV20 (maybe not their given name?) for calling us out. That isn’t Jazz! It’s Wheeljack!

58 Motormaster Crushes Jazz

See you all next week for what we can only hope is a better episode!
