Its our first CUSTOMIZER SPECIAL! This week we are joined by Richard of Ratfink Customs and John (aka the infamous 'PLuv' and friend of the program), admin of JoeCustoms.com to talk to us about the fine art of Joe customizing. If you are a customizer or any type of artist for that matter, the first hour will be bliss for you. In hour 2 we get down to the latest news of GI Joe 2: Bruce Willis will be Joe Colton, Jonathan Pryce returns as the President of the United States and we find out that Extensive Enterprises will be part of the movie! On the GI Joe Collectors' Club front, finished images of the first two subscription figures are now public - is the fandom liking what it sees and most importantly of all, how many will buy it. Lastly, Chuck gushes like a little girl over getting a free SDCC Skystriker. Believe us, the extra day to edit this is worth the wait! Enjoy!!

This week the WOJM Team is joined by not one, but TWO special guests. First the team sharpens their pencils and get an education in Classic Joe 101 as Ace Allgood from The Trenches 12" Forum gets the fellas back in touch with their Joe roots. We also learn that the more stuff changes between both scales, the more they remain the same - ultimately both sides of the hobby have a lot more in common than we know. In the news, we review the latest GI Joe 2 news, including Dwayne Johnson in weapons training for the film AND a recent rumor of Bruce Willis possibly joining the cast as Joe Colton. Those of you who are starved for new product, IT IS ON THE WAY and we oogle at the leaked pictures from China of Wave 1 and Wave 2 of the 30th Anniversary line. Finally we interview Christopher (aka Sidewinder) from the GI Joe Review Podcast - the grand daddy of all Joe podcasts. We learn about his vision to start the podcast and he tells us that new episodes are on the way! As Greg promised, it is a longer episode! Enjoy!
After weeks of a constant new barrage, the team gets a welcome breather and a lighter show agenda. First we review our voicemail to discover Chuck's new fan, Herb from Rhode Island. Next we dip into our mailbag to read a letter from listener Rob about the old website Mike's Forgotten Joes. In the news we discuss the latest casting of Mouse in the upcoming Joe sequel AND we have a release date to look forward to! Moving on we discuss the work of Yetibrew Designs and their awesome new augment parts for the Dragonfly.
