Back to the Eighties - Episode 159

This week Glenn, Phil and Sam discuss YOUR favourite Transformers teams and subgroups. Who will make the cut? Who doesn't even get a mention? At least one of the picks will astound even the guys!

We also ferret out all the news from our favourite franchises, including (for once) Ghostbusters news! Seriously, will that third movie ever get made?

Add to the mix a couple of listener questions, and well, that's a rich enough feast for any King of the Nerds.

RCP - Episode 182: ''In Breathtaking 2D!''

There's something about this movie, that just creates complete joy and happiness in people whenever they watch it.

The movie in question is 'A Town Called Panic' a French stop motion cartoon based on the series of the same name.

After what happened with Guardians Of The Lost Code, I thought the gang deserved a good movie for a change.

Stardub - Episode 59: The Penis Is Evil!

Welcome back to the Stardub podcast gentle listener. Ralph and Andy kick off the latest effort, with some handwringing about collecting as one of them attempts to justify buying the Titan Class Metroplex to their other half. They then move on to a most unconventional dramatic reading (the first of many) of the novelisation of ZARDOZ!

Andy shares with us the Battle of the Planets TV Comic Special from 1983 (harass him on twitter to scan and upload this rarity as it does have the first meeting between Zoltar and 7-Zark-7) and Ralph bitches about Alex Ross's revival of BOTP and the pair lament about the loss of comic book specials in the UK.

We then move on to the legend that is Peter's Pocket Grandpa from the last ever The Dandy Summer Special before reviewing an issue of the Beano and leaving you on an exciting cliffhanger...

Available from HERE or to download via iTunes.

Stardub - The True Friend Interlude 2 of 2

Right we’re back with the second of our video interludes. This was recorded the Monday after Auto Assembly in a Cafe Nero as most of us were struggling with exhaustion and awaiting a train/bus to get us back home.

Philip Ayres makes a guest appearance in the flesh from the Death Fortress in Swindon in order to bestow gifts upon most of us and torment upon Ralph!

We’ll resume normal audio service later today...

Witness the horror HERE or download via our iTunes feed.

Stardub - The True Friend Interlude 1 of 2

It’s been a little bit quiet here in the Sinister Haunt of Science that is Stardub, but fret not we shall return in a few short hours.

In the meantime here is the first of two special little video episodes to whet your appetite, in this first instalment the dashing and handsome and never buried under a patio member of our team – Andy is presented with a gift courtesy of the True Friend of the podcast, the Silent Member – Philip Ayres.

Apologies for the background noise – we were in a pub (shock horror) and the wonky aspect ratio you can blame Nick Davidson who was wielding the phone that recorded this footage

Super Action Matinee: Oh yeah, we've got this to wrap up still, huh?

After an absence of nearly a month, SAM is back! Gonna spend the next few days wrapping up the serials, then it's goodbye SAM. A lovely idea for the blog, but there just isn't a viewer-ship for it. Sad, but true. For this reason, I'm also dropping Green Hornet to focus on simply finishing the serials. We say goodbye today to Captain Marvel (Played by Tom Tyler, who also played The Phantom). Stay tuned next time as we say goodbye to Flash Gordon!

Batman, Chapter 12 - Embers of Evil

Superman, Chapter 12 - Blast in the Depths

Back to the Eighties - When the Music Stops: TRON

Yes folks, all the way from 1982, comes TRON, a story about a computer programmer who gets digitised and sent into a another dimension, where he has to save everything from the bad guys, especially David Warner!

Interesting fact - Corey Burton took inspiration from Warner's character in TRON when he was creating the voice of G1 Shockwave in the cartoon. Well I found it interesting.

RCP - Mini-EP 54: MLP The Island ... WHY!?!?

So yeah thanks to KickFailure I found the above out. After I stopped laughing I decided to show it to FezOfAlcon and started laughing at his reaction.

Once again a big thank you to KickFailure for providing a copy of this indiegogo page for 'The Island Of Equestria Project'. Still can't believe this was a great idea to someone ...

Apparently Hasbro sent a C&D over it, I wonder why? LOL.

RCP - Episode 179: Steampunk Mecha-Dino Attack!

Recorded on the same day as our Guardians of the Lost Code, however this was at StaticRift's place where I was crashing for the night.

In short I didn't know this movie existed until I found it at my local HMV, I dread to think how badly this movie must have bombed in terms of DVD sales. Not even steampunk powered robot dinosaurs could save it, LOL.

And don't get us started on the name of the really, REALLY, annoying comic relief character. What the heck happened to my taste in movies?
