We give Chuck grief for many things - many, many, MANY things.  One of those many things is that Chuck will not open his toys.  Well this week are joined by none other, the dynamic podcasting duo who encourages you to open your toys and to enjoy them, Slick and Mrs. McFavorite!  If you enjoy toy podcasts, you have undoubtedly heard their Open your Toys Cast.  If you haven't, visit their webpage or subscribe to them on iTunes, NOW!  After hearing a little more about the Open Your Toys Cast, we dip into the mailbag to answer some of your questions before moving on to halftime.  After the break, listener of the program, Nathan, gives a review of IDW Cobra #13.  In the news, we talk about the new Sideshow female figurine, the lastest Canadian JoeCon news INCLUDING the reveal and RETURN of BLACK ICE!!  To wrap it up, we have a lengthy discussion concerning the GeneralsJoes.com Concept Case Survey ROUND 1.  KWINN FOR THE WIN!  All this plus "Turf Kurds," the FSS honorings return and the WOJM Fantasy Football League!

As shows go, this one truly shaped up to be a very interesting one.  The first half is jam packed with three complete interview segments.  First we talk to Wayne Losey and Tucker Johnson from Go, Go, Dynamo!  Wayne and Tucker are two of the talents that brought us Sigma Six and now are using their expertice in the 8" arena to start up another 8" line, right now called, The Hero Project.  The Hero Project consists of World Cultural Heroes as 8" action figures with all of the pose and playability that your favorite Sigma Six figures had.  Wayne and Tucker also answer questions concerning their time on the Sigma line and drop us a tiny tidbit about a certain Sigma dropship possibly having a 3.75" seat tooled for it.  Interesting, right?  Well, if you like what you hear about the Hero Project, GIVE, and GIVE GENEROUSLY to their Kickstarter fund - http://hero.gogodynamo.com.  In segment 2, friend and sponsor of the program Mike Heddle (aka The Mike) pays us a visit to talk about the upcoming Canadian Joe Con (Aug 10 & 11 @ the Toronto Airport Sheraton) and find out what previous Canadian Con execlusive is making his grand return in modern era construction!  In segment 3, Steven, Rob and Paul from the Johnannesburg, South Africa based GI Joburg podcast join us (truthfully, they've been on and participated the whole time) to talk about their show, state of the hobby, and the hurdles they face to keep their hobby alive way down at the southern tip of Africa.  In the news...well, there wasn't much news.  Sideshow reveals a new Major Bludd and Baroness figures at SDCC - Gary laments of a lack of Snow Job.  Hasbro answered some Joe site questions at SDCC, some new stuff is revealed, other stuff is a review.  Yeah, that's the news.  We wrap up with a lengthy shout out segment before bidding our new South African friends good bye.

Please please please, pardon the audio.  Trust us, we know, it's not the best.  Between bad mics, international internet routing and having as many as 10 people connected to the same call, it could have gone a whole lot worse.  Sometimes the bandwidth gods are with you and sometimes they are against you, so apologies in advance.  We want to thank ALL of our guest for their patience and participation in the show.  We hope all of you enjoy the program!

As Justin says, "Hot Damn!"  After a whirlwind weekend in NOLA and a justified and well earned week-off rest (yes Chuck, those of us who WORK on the podcast need a rest), we're back.  As one con coverage comes to the end, another one is just getting started (and it ended since we recorded, but we digress...) as our focus briefly turns to the left coast and San Diego for SDCC.  Our good buddy Arune Singh from Marvel Comics joins us and if his new theme/love song from Chuck doesn't scare him off, we may be in store for some decent comic-level discussion from the biggest comic show of them all!!  As a side note, be sure to give us feedback on Arune's Theme...Justin, Mike and Gary want to be sure that it isn't JUST THEM who are tone impaired.  Anyway, have a listen to what Arune and Marvel have in store for SDCC and how it may relate to Joe fans.  Some of the info Arune gave us was time sensitive and Gary was a little lazy this week, so thus the late posting.  After Arune, we are joined by Mo Hunger from CardedHeroes.com.  You may remember Mo from our Ladies Night Episode as she Stumped the Chuck  in Trivia.  Ah, good times, good times!  What you might not remember from Mo is that she is an avid avid Joe comic fan.  Whether it is Marvel, DDP or IDW, there are few we'd consider on her level of expertise!  Mo joins us to fill us in from the IDW roundtable at JoeCon 2012.  We also discuss why the roundtable was so sparely attended and why their table at JoeCon looked so lonely.  Fear not, we're here to give IDW love and support!!  If you are a comic fan, the first hour of the show is for you.  In hour number 2, we wrap up JoeCon by reviewing once more the Hasbro Concept Case and upcoming/proposed Hasbro Concept Fan Vote.  We also review and wrap up the GIJCC's news concerning Iceberg, FSS v2.0, and the security status of the club website and shopping cart.  Both discussions on Hasbro and the GIJCC lead into our final thoughts and wrap up of JoeCon 2012 and when we might be seeing each other next in 2013.  In the news...well, there wasn't much news, but what news there was centered on the 2012 Canadian Joe Con in Toronto with the reveal of 3 figures and a vehicle with a familiar bling to it.  We wrap up this show with a bow of what we got in and shout outs before being led out with our buddy James's Theme...which is a lot more appropriate.  Anyway folks, thanks for your patience and we hope it was worth the wait!!  Enjoy!
