Can you believe we ACTUALLY made it to episode 30?! Neither can we! We have a special show lined up for this landmark episode. As you have heard from past shows, the legend of GI Joe may only be shadowed by the legend of James Kavanaugh, Jr!! He joins us once again, technically for a THIRD time (a fact completely lost on Gary during his intro). This week we struggle though some microphone and bandwidth issues, so we apologize in advance (in other words, we don't want to hear any complaints - we know!). Technical issues aside, we read some of your listener email AND Greg breaks the format and asks his own question for a lengthy and deep group discussion. In the news the fellas got a chance to view former guest Mark Cheng's Operation: Red Retrieval fan film for the first time. Get their spoiler free reviews! It is unlike anything you have ever seen before from a fan film! Justin gushes over waves 3 and 4 (reviews on his site). From the club we got two FSS unveils in the last week. You might have seen what the community said online about Sure Fire and Cover Girl, but check out what the fellas have to say about the latest two offerings from the club! You might be surprised on what they say. Its another TWO HOUR epic, full of news, reviews and laughs - sometimes even not at Chuck's expense AND they send a special shout out to one of our real heroes in the field. ALL NEXT on episode three-zero. Oh, and a special thanks to Action Figure Therapy for the celebrity intro!
Another great show. Thanks guys and Chuck!

Great job as always. I’d love to see a few more comic reviews.
Another great show. Mr. Kavanaugh was wonderful and very entertaining to listen to. Again Niagara falls after laughing so much.
I love the FSS selection and every figure looks great. I have decided to buy 2 subs myself. I am relatively new to the club itself only in my second year but I think this is something every member should get behind. Even if only one sub could be bought. I too know the days of the “hiatus” between 95 and 2000, even though at the time I tried to stop collecting anything I did miss seeing the new joe waves that came out and looking on the back of the card to see what was in the line . And with the way Hasbro thinks now about how they mainly only do core characters to get new fans, its nice that the Club FSS program is trying to bring out some of the forgotten or minor players to the fandom even though its not the responsibility of the club to do so. Anyways looking forward to the figures when available. But if there is another FSS set lets hope they plug the leak. I think that list ( though proven right) was very dumb. I would have preferred to not know personally but oh well.
Since this is going to be my 2nd year in the GjCC I am planning to attend the Canadian con to get my feet wet sort of speak with going to a one. With hopefully the next year attend my first Joe con the following year. Is the Canadian one similar to Joecon in anyway. Will there perhaps be a special WOJM to perhaps compare the 2 cons and get perspective on the Canadian one?
Anyway I can’t wait for next weeks show. Take care.

please excuse me for bringing Transformers into the conversation but I wanted to correct something.
Cybertron does in fact have an atmosphere. Humans have visited Cybertron in the comics and cartoons and had no problems breathing. Heck, the Joes in DD’s 3rd Joe/TF mini visited Cybertron and had no problems.
Now let’s bring on the video game teamup
Great listen as always guys, 2 hours still isn’t enough Joe talk! Great to have a special guest and I love the idea of an internal question to the group.
Reckon we all really appreciate you fellas taking time out of your week to keep us entertained and up to date on Joe news. Keep ‘em coming!
