ZOMG! It's here...finally. We recorded this well before JoeCon, but it is a MONSTER episode. We figured we should put out something worthy of 100, so here is our biggest show ever! It's all about you the listeners and us thumping our chest a little bit. Afterall, 100 shows is no small feat. It takes a lot of work and time, so we figured we would enjoy ourselves on this one, share some memories and look back at what make the previous 99 so special. Along the way we are joined by Bill Murphy from Fresh Monkey Fiction and Craig from Zica Toys to talk to us about their Captain Action and Eagle Force revival campaigns who talk to us about their upcoming Kickstarter slated for later this summer. They share with us a big announcement that you will want to hear! We are also joined by Cobra Commander...yes, the genuine article joins us to read your letters in the mailbag. It's all the pre-JoeCon news, your calls and our memories. Thanks for listening and being part of this awesome ride! We hope you enjoy this epic #100.
AKA Dave's & Chris's Excellent Adventure
WHAT A SHOW!! Dave and Chris managed to smuggle themselves into Boston that began an immense adventure behind enemy lines and a trek to Springfield, Illinois for Joecon 2015!! What followed was a 20+ hour road trip spanning two days, a Kokomo Toys visit, a small matter of Joecon 2015 and a return journey Christopher Columbus would have been proud of!! Throw in Dave's panel, an impromptu Boss Fight Builds and a new segment entitled, Bell's Bangers and you have a show that will make you laugh and cry (mainly cry)!! We will tie up all the loose ends in the next episode but for now enjoy listening to both Dave and Chris lose their voices systematically throughout the recording.......Oh yeah......FULL FORCE!!!!
With Joecon 2015 right around the corner, Dave and Chris chat about their impending journey into the depths of Springfield, Illinois and speculate about the show exclusives in this pre-episode or prepisode as Dave calls it. We will be bringing you content from the road trip and the show itself so stay tuned and, as always.....FULL FORCE!!
It's our annual quick and dirty pre-JoeCon "live" show...unedited for your rapid enjoyment. Joining us is CFB Ambassador, Jim Beutel to tell us all about this year's annual meet up. As you read this, parties are in motion toward Springfield, so download, plug in and enjoy this on your trip. #100 is still in the editing works so we hope this tides you over.
Yes it feels like it has been far too long but the boys are back with a brand new episode of your favourite British Action Force podcast. Join Chris, Dave and Eddie for a packed show featuring up-to-date news (HA!), a figure review and a Boss Fight Build of Blades with his Hawk, as well as a lost interview with Paddy Lennon and Brian Hickey of Total Retaliation, the book fame. With Dave and Chris travelling to the US for Joecon this week, we will have way more content coming out over the next few days so sit back, relax and let the dulcet tones of their strange accents lull you into a false sense of security.......FULL FORCE!!!
Jamie, Mike and Gary are back on the eve of the first round games for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament to talk about this year's field of 68. Who is in your Final Four...Kentucky and who else? Finally, on the road to Indianapolis...and its a road Gary doesn't mind. Remember our sports desk motto, BEAT CHUCK JUST BY PLAYING!!
So, going to JoeCon for the first time? You will WANT to listen to this episode. For the 4th consecutive year, Mike, Justin and Gary will go over - in depth - the 2015 JoeCon Brochure. This year we are joined by none other than the head of the GI Joe Collectors' Club himself, Mr. Brian Savage. Whether you are a JoeCon rookie or JoeCon vet, there is something in this show for everyone. Naturally, if you have a question and it did not get answered in this show, email the program at email@example.com and we'll get to the bottom of it for you. Until then, have a listen and hopefully we will see you in "beautiful" Springfield!!
As a staff, we had been planning Episode 99 for a while. We already recorded a very interesting interview with former Lanard and Mattel Designer, and huge Joe fan, Hawk Sanders that we knew everyone would love. It seemed like every time we needed the co-hosts to get together on this, something was always preventing the recording from happening. Whether it was Gary or Justin missing because of work, or it was Mike taking a longer than needed nap, the stars never did quite align when we wanted them to. We recorded the bulk of this show on Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015. Justin could not join because of work and a lousy Super Bowl victory hangover. So we went to the WOJM sub pool to find someone who could step in. We could think of no other than JoeDeclassified's Gary "Goggles" Head to fill the role. Gary was more than accepting to join, even crafting time away from his family on Tuesday night to record with us into the wee hours of Wednesday morning. It is a GREAT episode. We had good news, we talked about the convention set, we had good letters which sparked great discussion and Gary filled us in with what we would see at the Declass booth in Springfield. We ended this episode with great laughs and hearty good byes knowing that we'd be seeing each other and talking to each other soon. Sadly, on the afternoon of February 7th, we lost Gary to what has been described as a heart condition. Needless to say, as we all considered Gary, not only a friend of the program, but as personal friends too, we were shocked. Words are tough to come by to describe our sadness and remorse. This episode is dedicated to Gary's memory. His loss cannot be measured. He was one-of-a-kind. He will be missed. Thank you Gary for ALL you did for the GI Joe Community and WOJM.
When you are done listening to this episode, our friends at JoeDeclassified setup a fund to help support Gary's family in their time of need. We encourage you to give what you can. Every little bit helps. Thank you.
Erik and Dave from Boss Fight Studios stop by to update us on Vitruvian HACKS, Eagle Force and Caption Action. We also spend an unhealthy but comical amount of time talking about Conference Championship Weekend in the NFL (before the Patriots cheated again), Zorro the Gay Blade and Hall & Oates...yes, you read that right - Hall & Oates. Enjoy!
It's all over and we have a new champ...and a new chump! For the second year in a row the #4 seed wins the title. Congrats to Josh Morgan - you will be hearing him on the big show in the future. Once again, Mike, Jamie and Gary as they break down the championship bracket and the highly "uncoveted" last place game, the Chuck-O Bowl. We thank you for joining us on these supplemental episodes, we hope you liked them. Oh, and remember our motto: Beat Chuck Just By Playing!
It's playoffs time! Join Mike, Gary and Jamie as they review the first round of the playoffs and consolation ladder matchups. Who made the WOJM Bowl and who's in contention for the Chuck-O (the worst team). Reviews, previews and more are ahead!
Just in time for the holiday break, we give you #98! In this episode Gary and Noted Author James give you an on-the-spot report at Iowa's Assembly Required show. We also sit down with WOJM SuperGuest Bill Ratner and talk to him about his latest book and other projects he is working on. In the news "One Tank" Mike reports on what happened at Roll Out Roll Call in Southampton UK. We also discuss the unfortunate news of a former guest and community contributor passing. In the mailbag we got two very good letters, one razzing Chuck (YAY!) and the other sparking a lively debate on the wildly speculated (yet no actual facts thereof) a 6" Joe line. Lastly, as JoeCon nears, WOJM and veteran newsman Ted Baxter get you ready for Springfield by giving you facts about the town in an all new segment we hope you like. Hope you all enjoy! Happy Holidays from all of us! Stay safe!
The 4 playoff teams are decided. All that is left is the trash talk. Jamie laments his playoff failure while Mike and Gary laugh at his expense. You don't want to miss this level of butthurt this side of Chuck!
It was a record week for the Warriors as The Horror Show and Rebels clinch their divisions. There are 2 more spots in the playoffs with two weeks to go! Join Mike, Jamie and Gary as they review the last week of the NFL!
The playoffs are almost upon us! Mike, Jamie and Gary regroup to discuss week 11 of the NFL and the WOJM FFL!
Not exactly a timely episode, but hey, not a lot is going on. No worries, #98 is right around the corner. You may be wishing for it after you hear Chuck ramble in the opening segment. We basically catch up on some old news, discuss COIL Con V and have a small roundtable on the Club wanting to experiment with Shattered Glass and more TF/Joe Crossovers...which make Gary very grumpy. Enjoy the funk!
Mike, Jamie and Gary regroup to discuss week 10 of the NFL and the WOJM FFL!
Much like most the of the fandom, we were surprised and somewhat dumbfounded as the tinyish burb of Springfield, IL was selected as the site for our 2015 convention location. However, two special somebodies are pretty happy that Springfield was chosen and want to tell us why. It's coming up next on this very special edition of WOJM!!
Mike is back from England...and wants to talk proper football. Gary and Jamie allow him. It's week 6 in review!!
For a long time we have teased at it. You have asked for it. So we have delivered for you! It is the first-ever (to our knowledge) feature length commentary of the cult 80's favorite, MegaForce. Find out what GI Joe and MegaForce have in common! Listen and find out...better yet, watch AND listen to find out. So grab some popcorn, the MegaForce DVD and join us for 90 minutes of some Hal Needham directed craziness!!
