Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary, SDCC, Hot Toys, Kre-O, Rick Schad, Derryl DePriest by whatsonjoemind on September 17th, 2013

In this episode, they guys talk with former Hasbro employee Rich Schad who worked on the Joe line during The Rise of Cobra.  He talks to us about some of the work he did, some of which we saw, and sadly, some of which we didn't see.  Ever wonder why the Rise of Cobra boxes were oddly shaped?  Ever wonder what happened to that rumored IG v Steel Brigade set?  You'll find out why from Rick.  All in all, its a very interesting look into a side of our hobby that is not often talked about.  In the news, Retaliation W3.5 and W2 Kreons finally hit the shelves, new premium 12" figures hit in the form of Sideshow Storm Shadow and Hot Toys Joe Colton, and friend of the show Chris (aka Mysterious Stranger) talks to Hasbro's Derryl DePriest at SDCC about the future of the line.  Before wrapping it up, the gang dives into the mailbag once more to answer your burning questions.  It's episode 85 - and you know what that means...the guys talk about 1985 Joes.  Find our our favorites from this era.  All this packed into 2 hours!  Enjoy!

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary, Jay, CanJoeCon, JoeCon, Retaliation, FSS, Kre-O, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Carson by whatsonjoemind on March 11th, 2013

Yes, its another near 3 hour epic. This time the ENTIRE team is back in action as we are joined by Carson from 3DJoes.com, but not before hearing from Sunbow legend, the voice of Lady Jaye herself (and maybe your car's nav system), Mary McDonald-Lewis! She'll be at JoeCon along with Justin, Mike and Gary so you will be hearing from her again, we are sure. Sit back and take a trip down memory lane as Mary tells us how important Lady Jaye is to her and what's she's currently up to in Hollywood and in the Great Northwest. Carson joins us for the rest of the show and talks to us about his technology that powers 3DJoes.com and proves once again - what we ALREADY know - EVERYTHING IS BETTER IN 3D. In the news, the team laments the cancellation of the Canadian JoeCon. Retaliation trailers and the Paramount PR machine is in high gear for preparation of the 28th and 29th of March! FSS shipment 3 lands on our doorsteps and boy is it a "knockout." Joe fans have conquered now THREE hotels in downtown Indy for JoeCon 2013 and lastly, it looks like there is yet another tie between Jurassic Park and our favorite man of action. We got your tweets, letters and more in this episode of WOJM!

Episode 73: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Chuck, Justin, Gary, Jay, JoeCon, GIJCC, Retaliation, Renegades, Kre-O, Toy Fair 2013, Khary Payton, Micro Force by whatsonjoemind on February 17th, 2013

The guys are back, surviving Winter Storm Nemo and Toy Fair. Before jumping into the coverage, we play our pre-recorded interview of the Renegades voice of Ripcord, Khary Payton. We talk to him about Renegades, Aqualad AND his voice roles in Metal Gear Solid and The Sims (yes, that is right, The Sims). Following the interview we replay the audio presentation of the Hasbro Toy Fair presentation concerning GI Joe. Following the break, we jump into a Mike-less mailbag answering some speculation questions on JoeCon and a Legendary letter from one noted Legendary listener. In the news, JoeDeclassified and JoeCustoms is having the mother-of-all customs contest with a grand prize that is truly priceless. Marauder John starts another Kickstarter campaign and at the time of the recording, we ALREADY successful, but you should contribute anyway, especially if you gave the first time around! Hot Toys tries to make poor Joe fans even more poor with pre-orders of their 12" Retaliation Storm Shadow. Speaking of poor Joe fans, BBTS puts their Marauders 7 pack on sale, so buy 'em up! Wanna free watch featured in the Retaliation film, the guys will tell you where to enter. Speaking of Retaliation, the viral marketing campaign is in full swing, do you have what it takes? Lastly, lengthy coverage of the GIJCC's 12" Comrade of Action and JOECON registration (which at the time of this recording as well was still open, but we had an idea it would be closing soon). All of this, dramatically and non-comedic-ally read by Ted Bastard (aka Chuck doing a very bad impersonation of Ted Baxter). Following that possible train wreck, we review Toy Fair once again, and predictably, Chuck goes fan boy for no reason whatsoever on the newly revealed Eaglehawk. We replay a clip from the ModeratelyGeeky podcast, which former guest of the show George, reads a monolog on WHY Joe fans will not like the Eaglehawk - and Chuck falls right into that hole as we expected. Mike is not here this week, but he makes his presence known. Thanks to Jay for stepping in again. We hope you enjoy this jammed packed show!

Episode 72: What’s on JOE Mind?

Posted in WOJM Regular Edition, Chuck, Mike, Gary, Jay, JoeCon, Retaliation, Renegades, FSS, Basic Assortment Figures, Kre-O, Andrew Kishino by whatsonjoemind on February 2nd, 2013

This is a bit of minor milestone episode.  It is our 100th combined episode we have recorded, produced and published!  While we still have a long way to go for our 100th regular episode, these milestones don't come often and there is no guarantee we will be around for Episode 100 so we give thanks and mark the occasion nevertheless.  This episode we are joined by Ed Lydon, the handchosen (by Chuck) winner of the FOC logo contest.  Standing in for Justin, who was under the weather, is CardedHeroes.com Jay Hunger.  Included in this episode is a very cool interview we had with Andrew Kishino, the Renegades voice of Storm Shadow.  Learn how he had to act against a character who didn't speak and hear Justin bust his chops for being a Giants fan.  Ryan Costello, aka Scramble from JoeCanuck and the Canadian JoeCon shares with us a new segment he's doing for us called Collectors Connection.  Its interesting!  You don't want to miss it.  In the second half, we read your emails about your favorite WOJM memories from our previous 100 combined episodes.  Oddly, most have to do with our Kevin Michael Richardson interview or Chuck melting down.  Both EXCELLENT choices in our opinion.  In the news, all 15 figures of the 2013 JoeCon set are revealed.  You will get your Justin Bell-free thoughts.  We are also excited to report that PRODUCT of all types ARE ON THE SHELVES!  Retaliation Wave 2 singles, Retaliation Wave 2 3-packs, Micro Force, Kre-o's and the running changes of the Basic Assortment figures (aka Dollar General Joes).  Also in the news is a LOT of movie news...well, more movie news than we are normally used to since May.  So all in all, it is a jam packed show.  Its awesome, and you know its awesome because we talk about Suzanne Pleshette...I mean, when was the last time ANYONE mentioned anything about Suzanne Pleshette - on a GI Joe podcast no less.  Enjoy #100 in a style only we do things!
