Woo hoo Transformers!

Loved the podcast. I have strong memories of both of these episodes, probably because they introduced new toys. The first "season", if you call it that, was on heavy rotation since there was a nine month space in 1985 without new spisodes. I must have watched both of these a half dozen times or more.

Heavy Metal War is one of my favorites of the entire series. It is memorable on so many levels. It greatly expanded the Decepticon roster with six new robots. The first combiner was awesome, and I always felt it was better than Voltron because each component had three modes, not two: robot, vehicle, and Devastator part. I also loved the whole bit with Megatron cheating and stealing all the other Decepticon's powers. Cliche, it may be, but it blew my ten year old mind when I saw it.

I look forward to you podcasting on season 2 episodes. There are some real stinkers in there, certainly, but some real gems as well.
