Be prepared to learn about a whole other level of GI Joe collecting from two of the higher profile pre-production collectors in the community. Joining us for his second appearance is the infamous Gary Head, but we're not going to interview him...no, no, no, he's had his chance in the WOJM limelight and what did he do? He let Chuck read a haiku whilst imitating Sunbow Major Bludd, very very badly. So we put the "other" Gary to work this episode and gave him hosting duties. Getting the red carpet treatment this week is the extremely knowledgable Pat Stewart - aka notpicard (get it?!) on the boards. He shares with us thw work Hasbro puts into engineering our favorite figures and further helps us determine what is a variant and what is not and what does all of this strange terminology mean like TEST SHOT, PROTOTYPE, CARDED SAMPLE, etc, etc. We hope your mind has a hunger for some Joe knowledge, because you will get more than a three meal course this time! In the news the team gives their thoughts on the latest GIJCC FSS offering TNT. Jealousy and rage are contained as JayC from TNI shares with the community his BBTS exclusive 7-packs. We also get a chance to see some of the next two waves of figures IN HAND as Justin get's the exclusive lowdown on the upcoming waves. Before wrapping it up someone is going to win a MOC SDCC pink Zarana as we draw a winner for our latest contest sponsored by ARealAmericanHero.com. What was the name of that Gay Bar Gary and Justin went to in 2005? It's not the longest WOJM ever, but Chuck always tells us that size doesn't matter. Anyways...remember, #MOARGREG > #LESSGREG - ALL NEXT on WOJM!
YES. How sad is it that I was actually IN the recording, and I can’t wait to download and listen to this one.
Gonna be a fun one.
….2.5 hrs and hardly a mention about vehicles … ….
GREAT SHOW! I am a collector of the 0-ring prototypes and this was a great topic. Goggles has a metric %^$# ton of awesome info and it is nice to hear this stuff. Keep up the great work guys.
Another great show , as always. Very informative again as well. I never gave the numbing system to when the figure was made but now I think I’ll have to take a look at them just to see if I can figure out the date of production.
I for one have always been on board in support of the Club subscription. I still at least plan on getting two this time around and keep signing up if they do continue with it. just wondering do you guys think the FSS might be an opportunity for the club to perhaps even get figures they have done in O ring style to get an update to 25th/30th style for example the Black Cobra Commander or Big Lob? And if they can do you think they might even revisit a figure like Piper, or does Piper require too much red tape cutting like Slaughter? I only asked about Piper because it was a club figure and not one Hasbro had done. Do you think they might even re-release figures they have done like their international lines that were before only released at Joe con? I guess only time will tell on that score.
Anyway again great show and I can’t wait to see more reviews Justin. I didn’t think Sci-fi could be any cooler then wow. It looks great , so does Law and Airtight. Airtight would make a good troop builder with out the gear. May have to consider it myself. And I’ll throw my vote in too I think a Sigma Six 3 3/4 would be cool too. Can’t wait for the reviews and next week show. Take care guys. And congrats to Scott for winning this weeks contest.

Here are the show notes for this episode: http://forums.yojoe.com/news/82057-whats-joe-mind-gi-joe-podcast-show-notes.html
Another fantastic show all around guys. As a Joe fan without any other Joe fans in his direct real life, I really appreciate the podcast every week. It’s so awesome to hear other like minded folks with the same passion for Joe as I have. I really dig the guests every week or two…it always add a fantastic dynamic into the show.
Thanks again all around!
