Episode 88: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary, JoeCon, Mark Bellomo, Jon Chu, FSS2 by whatsonjoemind on December 26th, 2013

It is a 4 hour holiday and end of year epic.  The first half of this behemoth features a 2 HOUR interview with one of our favorite toy industry intellectuals, Mark Bellomo.  This interview, turned high brow toy discussion covers topics ranging from working with Larry Hama to a full blown discussion on what Hasbro can do next to re-ignite our favorite line.  Make sure to have plenty of fluids and get up and stretch to keep the blood flowing because this is our longest interview yet.  The news this episode is all about the GIJCC.  We got 2 shipments of the FSS.  We now know the 3.75" and 12" incentive figures AND the HAVOK Mk II (Huh?!).  Also head on over to the NEW GIJCC forums and vote in the "official"-ish Billy Kessler figure poll.  Following the news it is all about looking back at 2013 and looking forward to a dim 2014 - the best we can.  The look back is highlighted by our best moment of the year, our interview with Jon M. Chu.  Re-live the magical moment with us, will ya?  Sorry, there is no epic Chuck Melt Down HA-HA moment of 2014, but he almost causes us to meltdown when he lets an appearance of a certain annoying show character grab the mic.  You will want to miss that segment, but everything else is worth your 4 hours.  We're not forgetting this one Irizarry!!

Episode 83: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary, JoeCon, SDCC, Debbie, Jon Chu, Jim Sorenson, Indy Toy and Comic Expo, GI Joe 3 by whatsonjoemind on July 11th, 2013

It's been a month in the making!  Thanks for the wait.  We have one a heck of a show for this episode.  In the first half, we actually have some VINTAGE discussion talking about our favorite figure and vehicle from 83 (and 82).  We will do this every episode from here on out until we get to 94 and then we will figure something else out!  HA!  After our discussion, we jump to a pre-recorded interview with GI Joe Field Manual co-author Jim Sorenson.  In the second half, Jay Hunger (from that hack geeky podcast) joins Gary as they talk to Billy Cooper of the Indy Toy and Comic Expo as WOJM will be recording live from their show in July!  After the interview we dip into the mailbag to read a letter from one of our regular listeners detailing the similarities and differences of JoeCon v. BotCon.  In the news we celebrate Jon Chu helming GI Joe 3, they review - once again - the SDCC Joe exclusives, they discuss the new Regular Joes Podcast and wrap it up with talk about the new wave of Retaliation Joes arriving.  It's a pieced together episode that totals almost 3 hours of content...and a woman on it to boot.  How could you NOT listen now, right?  Oh, and don't forget to listen to our new spin off, The Full Force!

WOJM Special Edition #28: Our Review of Retaliation…AND JON CHU!!

Posted in Uncategorized, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary, Retaliation, Jon Chu, Craig by whatsonjoemind on March 31st, 2013

Once again, first off, there are many many spoilers discussed in this episode.  If you have not seen the movie and do not want to be spoiled, we recommend you DO NOT listen to this until you have seen the movie first!!

So we've all seen the movie.  There is some parts WE LOVE.  There are some parts that still need some work.  Aaaand, yes, there is a part or two that made us cringe.  With that said, we all enjoyed our time at the theater to watch the movie we waited so long for.  What were our favorite parts?  What parts did we not like?  What would we do if we were in charge?  We answer all of those.  Plus...we get an unannounced but very welcome visit by Retalition's Director - yes, Mr. Jon M. Chu himself joins us from his kitchen.  He spends nearly an HOUR with us candidly answering every question we asked him.  What an opportunity - thanks to Justin for setting that up and thanks for Jon joining us while going over opening night return numbers.  We had a blast doing this one and we hope you enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime recording of WOJM!

Once again, spoilers are abound - you have been warned!
