It's been a while since we've done a retrospective. With this lull in the news, the four guys get together to look back at the 25th Anniversary line. What figures did we consider the best? What vehicles did we feel were worth the money? What did we think were the stinkers? It's a fun and quick whirlwind jont through the era that brought Joe back to the masses. Got an hour? Have a listen! Be sure to tell us your winners and losers. Let the debate(s) begin!

It is an extended episode of WOJM as we review the year that was 2012 and preview the upcoming 12 months with high hopes of a big year. However, before we get to that we have a very special holiday treat to share with you, an interview with the Sunbow voice of Flint, Bill Ratner. Jumping into the news, the FSS has launched, The GIJCC annouces a second run of JoeCon 2012 sets, USA Today looks at IDW's new Special Missions title, JoeCon will be in Indy, Amazon lowers 4-packs to crazy levels, Chuck thinks wrestling rumors concerning Retaliation is legit, and Hot Toys gets a Retaliation license! Whew...so much for slow news, eh?
For the year in review, we remember the first of the Retaliation toys to hit, the uncovering of the "Dollar General" Joes, Retaliation gets delayed, and WOJM experiences some major growth.
In the 2013 preview, we talk about our excitement for the film (still) and whether or not we will see it in 3D. Further we bat around the possibilities of the 2013 JoeCon set, IDW's "relaunch" of the main comic and briefly talk about Kre-O's
Even though we are posting this ON Christmas Day, we go over a Holiday Buying guide in the event you need ONE MORE Joe gift to buy for that decerning fellow collector of yours.
Lastly, we talk about those we lost in 2012, crown the Best Chuck Moment of 2012, get the lowdown from the Fantasy Football Desk and we wrap it with our regular "What we got in..." and "Shout Outs" segment.
We hope you enjoy the show! Thanks for helping us make 2012 the best year for WOJM yet! See you in 2013!
Listener Note: The WOJM FFL wrap up runs from 02:09:30 to 02:16:52
Call him what you want... A snob, an elitist, selfish, whatever, but Gary REALLY likes his get aways. Imagine his surprise, after years of discouraging the club from placing the Con in his hometown (an event that would make any other Hoosier collector REALLY happy), that his efforts were in vain. Yes folks, JoeCon hits the lower midwest in the first time since...well, EVER. As much as Gary didn't want the con in Indianapolis, he is proud of his state and city. Along with Mike, who is also a former resident of the Indianapolis metro area, they run down what to see, do and eat around the 2013 convention site, the brand spanking new JW Marriott! We also answer some commonly asked questions by convention n00bs and even do a little blind speculation of the figures which we think might be in the set. So, even if Gary doesn't welcome you to Indianapolis, we still invite you to have a listen. 2013 has the potential to be something special!
