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:

We’ll see you in 2 weeks as we continue to get closer to the end!

Episode 89: The Big Broadcast of 2006

This episode actually takes place before the previous one, so try to keep up. You can listen to it here:

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was when a Junkion named, and I’m not kidding, Nancy was blown up and then pulled herself back together immediately:

Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was, and again I’m not joking, when a planet of cat people took to starships and attacked a planet of dog people:

We’ll see you in about two weeks for a truly bananas episode!

Episode 88: The Quintesson Journal

Not as crazy as Season 3 has been recently, this episode is still plenty of fun. You can listen to it here:

88 Title

Adam’s Most Insane Moment was when the Decepticons actually hit something and blew a hole in Sky Lynx, dumping some Autobots into space:

88 Sky Lynx Is Shot

Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was arguably even more amazing when Rodimus Prime and Ultra Magnus rode Sky Lynx into space and destroyed the Quintesson ship with their handguns:

Hope you enjoy it! See you in two weeks!

Episode 83: Webworld

We’re back and almost on time! You can listen to the episode here:

First of all, RIP Len Wein. We’ll say more next episode.

Now, Kevin’s Most Insane Moment was when this weird centipede creature fell apart.

Adam’s Insane Moment involved Sky Lynx and Sludge messing with a Sweep:

Thanks for hanging in there and we’ll see you in 2 weeks!

Episode 80: Madman’s Paradise

If you can, watch this episode before you listen. Because, oh boy, it’s amazing. It might be Kevin’s favorite episode of the entire series.

Why should you watch it? Well, Grimlock wears an apron and a bowtie:

Not enough? How about Adam’s Insane Moment when a cyclops/tree/centaur throws a laser boomerang at Grimlock, and he just eats it?

Want more? Well, SPOILER ALERT, but at the end of the episode a man of gold uses Blaster to cast a spell and defeat a wizard Quintesson.

Yep, and there’s even more. We hope you have as much fun as we did, and we really hope there are more episodes left like this one!

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!
