Episode 23: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition by whatsonjoemind on September 30th, 2011

In this episode, the guys are joined by Joe community member and GI Joe documentarian, club columnist and JoeCon panelist Kevin Watts to talk to him about his NJCC exclusive HISS Tank and some past CLASSIC JoeCon memories.  From the mailbag we are asked about our collection grails and asked to talk about the "neon" era prior to the 3.75" line's first hiatus.  In the news we go over Cobra Commander added to the cast as a character in GI Joe 2.  Also uncovered and discussed is some really cool Rise of Cobra art work from Mike Thompson showing us what we could have seen on some canceled products.  Lastly, contest winners are announced, listener concerns about promos addressed and an early release for Episode 24 is made public.  All this and Justin single handedly jinxed the Red Sox on their playoff run (Ack...Playoffs?!) , plus a ton of laughs (and some beeps) in this episode of WOJM!


Episode 22: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition by whatsonjoemind on September 23rd, 2011

This week we are joined by honcho Fran (aka Destro) to talk to him about the New Jersey Collectors' Convention and learn a little history on how the HissTank community got its start.  Its an interesting interview - you should listen!  Due to a slow news week, the team discussed many points of view while trying to answer Tim from KC's question about Hasbro distribution. Speaking of distribution, apparently it is working in some areas as Greg, Justin and Gary review each one of the new Renegades figures with the general consensus being that these are AWESOME!  Gary encourages a thread on HissTank concerning wanting a Sideshow Navy SEAL Torpedo figure - how sweet would that figure be!?  Oh, and the Hits for Tots campaign rolls on at full speed.  We'll be making some less fortunate children and the US Marine Corps very happy this holiday season!

Also this week the show announces not one but TWO contests.  Here are the details:

First, from, we have a $75 gift certificate for a lucky person who "Likes" our Facebook page.  To enter, hit up our Facebook page at and click the LIKE button at the top of the page.  It's just that simple!  If you have already "LIKED" our page, do not worry, you are already entered, so you are good to go!! Be sure to tell your other friends who like Joe!  We will pick a winner next week!

Second, from friend of the program Gary Head, we have not one but TWO cases of Joes for a lucky winner who is NOT located in North America.  That's right, no one from the US or Canada is eligible.  This is an international care package consisting of 1 case of Wave 1 and 1 case of Wave 2!  All you have to do is answer these 4 easy questions about the show and email them back to us at  A winner will be pulled in a blind draw from all those who submit correct answers.  Here are the FOUR questions:

1.)  Fictionally speaking, on Chuck's Facebook Fan Page - What the Chuck?, Chuck is "BIG" in what country?

2.)  FILL IN THE BLANK:  Justin just reviewed the most recent convention set.  The name of the set is Mission {BLANK}.

3.)  THIS IS A TWO PART QUESTION.  PART 1: What was the last international country that Greg visitied and in turn was imprisoned and later rescued by Chuck with his Snake Eyes sword?  PART 2:  What was Greg eating and drinking when Chuck found him in jail?

4.)  In what country was Gary in when he watched the 2011 Cricket World Cup?

Good luck to all that enter.  We'll be sure to post everything again on our Facebook page for max exposure.  Next week will be a fun show as we will be joined by Kevin Watts.  Don't let this show slip you by though - go ahead, start listening will ya?

Hey, what can we say, it was a slow news week, but we still delivered some high quality community content; or at least we tried to!  First we are joined by Cole Sickler, the Community Manager from to talk to us about their unique social networking marketplace and how they plan to engage the Joe community.  Greg gives his first hand review of Yo Joe: A Real American Hip Hop Musical in Chicago.  We get some listener mail about the IDW series which sparks some decent discussion.  Topping the news and hot on the heels of Wave 1, the first of the anticipated Renegades figures begin to appear.  Hasbro made a surprise announcement that they will appear at the New York Comic Convention - will they FINALLY show us those long rumored 7 packs?  Lastly, Chuck talks our ears off on his latest purchases, Justin wants to do a Thundercat's podcast, and Gary is sick.  It can't get any better than this - CAN IT??  Its all the Joe news from the last week; squeezed down to less than an hour.

This week we are joined by Steve "Megatron" Phillips of the Geek Cast Radio Network to talk to us about our new affiliation AND turn the tables on us by getting a chance to interview the WOJM team for a new audience of listeners.  Greg adds to his softball league hit count and in the process ups the number of toys we will donate to Toys for Tots this holiday season.  In the news, a bound edition of all of the classic Marvel GI Joe Yearbooks are up for pre-order on Amazon. We "ohh" and "ahh" over the unveiling of the new membership incentive figure from the GIJCC and we also get some new info concerning how the club will bill and ship your figures if you join their subscription program.  Lastly the team goes over the highlights from the latest round of the Hasbro Q&A, including the future of the Data Viper and the long rumored 7 packs.  Once again we are joined by everyone's favorite "British Dude", The Fwooshcast's Craig.  Stand by for another 90 minutes of Joe commentary, news and reviews...and a little humor, albeit bad.  Enjoy!


Episode 19: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition by whatsonjoemind on September 1st, 2011

Think you've seen and heard everything there is about Joe?  Think again!  This week we are joined by Jay Gish, director of Yo Joe - A Real American Hip-Hop Musical.  You have NEVER heard Joe like this before - ever!  We even have a clip to share as we talk about the production with Jay and Dave Stecco who plays Gung Ho's alter ego, "Full Bore."  After, we empty the mail bag - or at least put a nice dent in it.  Believe it or not, we even talk about My Little Pony.  Find out which Joes we like that got little or no love from the comic and cartoon, get our opinions of the line for the next 5 year and hear our guesses concerning who we would like to see in the GIJCC's subscription program.  Speaking of the GIJCC, the staff lends a helping hand by encouraging an over anxious fandom to show a little patience.  As they say, good things come, to those who wait.  All of this, plus hurricanes, Craig from The Fwooshcast and Greg starts off our Toys for Tots campaign on a good foot.  Oh, and we have a special episode #21 planned - it Chuck's SILENT EPISODE!  No...but seriously, its cool, but you will have to listen to find out what it is!
