Stasis Pod Episode 180: Out of the Past

As Miko tries to come to terms with Bulkhead’s long road to recovery, Arcee shares the story of how she met Cliffjumper — and reminds her that among the Autobots, they all understand what she’s going through. But who can fill The Rock’s shoes for a flashback episode? Did they really make a new character model just for this episode? And how does Shockwave always manage to look exactly the same?

Stasis Pod Episode 178: Turbo Teen: Dark Rider and the Wolves of Doom

Will Bulkhead survive? Guess you’ll have to wait to find out, because surprise! It’s April Fool’s!

The same 1984 fall TV season that brought us Transformers also brought us another show about someone turning into a car — horribly, grotesquely turning into a car, in a way no child at the time would ever unsee. This week we take a look at Turbo Teen, his Frank Welker-voiced nemesis, his also-Frank Welker-voiced dog, and the many, many, way too many times an episode he transforms into a car and back! Join us this April Fool’s for “Dark Rider and the Wolves of Doom”!

Stasis Pod Episode 177: Toxicity

Bulkhead follows his set of coordinates to a cache of toxic Tox-En, but Hardshell and his Insecticons are on his tail! Can Bulkhead get rid of it for good before it kills him? Do they seriously not have a description field in this Iacon Database? And can we stop talking about System of a Down for long enough to actually discuss the episode? Join us this week for “Toxicity”!
