Wendy’s Insane Moment was a reference to The Warriors:

Adam’s Insane Moment was when the Matrix healed everyone and “The Touch” played:

And Kevin’s Insane Moment was when a crazy space spider tried to eat Goldbug (aka Bumblebee):

Episode 96: The Return of Optimus Prime Part 1 with Jon and Nick from Stranger Still

96 Optimus Returns

It’s a big episode this week as… well, Optimus Prime Returns. I mean, it’s in the title. Listen to it here:

As we get closer and closer to the end of the original Transformers cartoon, our All-Star Guests continue coming. This episode we are joined by the hosts of the excellent podcast Stranger Still, Jon Beigen and Nicholas Wood! Nick also does the Hanna-Barbera based cartoon review show Limited Cel with his dad, but you can find it at the same link. If you’re looking for specific episodes to start with, the PETA episode of Stranger Still and the Banana Splits Adventure Hour on Limited Cel were both good.

Jon’s Insane Moment was when a bunch of the Autobots got infected by the rage virus:

96 Rage Virus in Auitobots

Nick chose the moment when they were juuuust about to melt Optimus Prime’s body down:

96 Optimus Prime Getting Melted

Adam enjoyed seeing Rodimus build a team and having all of them transform back to back (careful if you’re playing the drinking game during this sequence):

96 Transform and Roll Out

And Kevin loved it when Rodimus Prime transformed to jump over an infected Ultra Magnus, then transformed back and drove away:

96 Rodimus Jumps Ultra Magnus

All right, join us next time for the conclusion of The Return of Optimus Prime and another of our amazing guests!

Episode 94: The Burden Hardest to Bear

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 71: The Five Faces of Darkness Part 4

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! It’s basically a Christmas miracle that Kevin got the episode finished this weekend! You can listen to it here:

We are loving this series and the history it reveals this week. Kevin’s Most Insane Moment involved Galvatron smacking the Quintesson, Deliberata, aside:

And Adam’s Most Insane Moment was when Galvatron lost it and destroyed the “planet” Goo:

We’ll be back in 2 weeks (in the new year!) with the conclusion!

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:

Download it here: Episode 66 Transformers The Movie 1 of 2

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!
