Special guest Jack Fields and I fire up the GoBackatron 1977thousand for a look back at the first year of Micronauts! This one's about Elvis, it's about the Bee Gees, it's about the Star Wars, but mostly it's about Darth Vader centaurs with laser beam eyes. Proper show notes later but for now all you need to know is that Jack's film Happy Memories is screening at PalmCon this weekend!

The Micronauts was arguably the best sci-fi toy line ever on the Gobots and Transformers came close when it comes to innovation. i loved the articulation and shiny interchangeable parts. and even with out the benefit of a mega million dollar film franchise they still had a story all their own as toys which explains in part how they stirred Bill Mantlo's imagination as they did. Pat Broderick was probably the most successful artist on that comic series only second to Michael Golden. Mantlo in general had trouble commit artists on that series.
