I ususally only listen to the parts where you guys talk about the toys. Well, when you guys answered NO to getting Leader Bumblebee, well, lets just say I was drinking hot chocolate...ouch.

But I do agree about it. Ironhide over Bee any day.

TF Gurus. Gotta love'em.

Not me! Not a drinker. :mrgreen:

Eric Idle and Tony Pope did Wreck-Gar. :lol:

RiD Hot Shot and RiD Ironhide. Both of which were some of the best voices of that show. :D

Pearl Harbor was intense enough. Its attack scenes were uber awesome.

I wrote this before about Bay and Spielberg getting inot the Hall of Fame so soon:
Sabrblade wrote:While I do admit that these two have indeed played an important role in TF history, I would think inducting these two so soon seems kinda hasty. I mean, I'd think that someone like Simon Furman (who's worked on TF material for nearly all 26+ years) or Frank Welker (who's voiced a large chunk of iconic G1 characters plus many recent ones) would have gotten in before these two. It's like, these are getting in so quickly for their recent efforts before some of those who have been with the franchise for a lot longer.

I'm not saying that these two shouldn't get in. Just that they should... wait their turn. ;)

The following, IMHO, should be inducted before Bay/Spielberg (in no particular order, though):
  • Frank Welker - voiced the majority of the G1 cast (including Megatron, Galvatron, and Soundwave)
  • Simon Furman - penned probably more TF stories than anyone else, and created the Primus & Unicron god concept
  • Bob Forward & Larry DiTillio - head writers of Beast Wars, which shaped all future fiction to come after it
  • David Kaye - voiced more Megatrons than anyone else, as well as voicing an Optimus Prime (and a Grimlock), and more
  • Flint Dille - one of the story editors for the G1 cartoon
  • Susan Blu - voiced G1 Arcee and a few other G1 females, but more importantly, voice director for Beast Wars, Beast Machines, and Animated
  • Nelson Shin - producer of the G1 cartoon and director of the G1 movie
  • Wally Burr - voice director for the G1 cartoon
  • Stan Bush - performer of iconic Transformers songs such as "The Touch"
  • Scott McNeil - voiced numerous character roles in all of the Beast Era and all of the Unicron Trilogy
  • Shōhei Kohara & Floro Dery - designed the original animation models of the many G1 characters (yes, I know about the infamy surrounding Dery's history in the fandom, but he still played an important role in the franchise's origin -- the dude designed Unicron and the Matrix!)
  • Margaret Loesch - formers president and CEO of Marvel Productions during the time of the G1 cartoon, in which she served as a producer of it, and is currently the head of the Hub television network.

"Wazpinator want glory, Wazpinator want power! And what does Wazpinator get?! Wazpinator never gets what Wazpinator wants!" - give this guy the win! He suffered for our enjoyment.

Hey, if Waspy wins, that'd also prove the voting isn't rigged. ;)

This new G1 box set is just like the Matrix set minus all that set's exclusive stuff. Imagine taking the DVDs from the season 1 set, both the season 2 sets, and the seasons 3 & 4 set; put those 13 discs together and you got this set. The Matrix set has three more discs of bonus content that this set does not have. It's basically Shout! Factory trying one more time to cash in on its G1 DVDs. :P

Hey, don't forget, the new complete series set of Beast Wars includes "Dawn of Future's Past", which not everyone has. ;)

Episodes 12-14 of Prime were top quality episodes. 15, however, was just... okayish. The Starscream moments of "Shadowzone" were great, but the rest of it was... average.

The zombie hand was confusing, though. When it fell off ,it still moved. Back in "Darkness Rising", when a part of a Terrorcon (zombie) was cut off, it shut down.

While I didn't get the Transformers Animated: The Cool graphic novel, I did read all of it in English. And it was awesome. 8)

And, Animated Black Rodimus is a new character, separate from his good guy counterpart.

You rang? Gentei! Gentei! Stuntron Wildrider. ("Ghen-tay"). ;)

Exodus vs. WFC vs. G1 vs. Beast Era vs. Unicron Trilogy vs. Movies vs. Animated vs. Itself. It's right here if ya wanna read it (took three months in the making) - Exodus Vs. Oh, and here's the news page of it.

I will be at BotCon 2011. This year's is gonna be awesome.

Another great one guys. Keep it up.

OK, I have a couple questions that I hope aren't TOO dumb.


1. It seems that I have to download the entire episode now, and then listen to it. Before, I could just stream the episode. I'd just click the link and the episode would start. I don't think I've changed any settings on my end. Has something changed? I notice that I'm directed to a "podcast file download" page recently.

2. Along with #1, I've had problems downloading the podcast. The downloads just stops, as if complete, at some random point short of the total file size. Has anyone else reported this?

It's not that I don't drink at ALL... I just don't OVER-drink and get drunk. Not my style. But I love free stuff. :) See you in a week, Diem! You too, Sabrblade!

A soda is still a drink ("beverage") to me. ;)

Hope to see you guys too. I'll mostly be hanging with the three bros that run Unicron.com (my other main TF site, at which I am also an admin), but I hope to meet some of you Seibertronians as well.

I had two different IRL friends have this problem. I haven't. Not sure what's different.
