So, going to JoeCon for the first time? You will WANT to listen to this episode. For the 4th consecutive year, Mike, Justin and Gary will go over - in depth - the 2015 JoeCon Brochure. This year we are joined by none other than the head of the GI Joe Collectors' Club himself, Mr. Brian Savage. Whether you are a JoeCon rookie or JoeCon vet, there is something in this show for everyone. Naturally, if you have a question and it did not get answered in this show, email the program at email@example.com and we'll get to the bottom of it for you. Until then, have a listen and hopefully we will see you in "beautiful" Springfield!!

Erik and Dave from Boss Fight Studios stop by to update us on Vitruvian HACKS, Eagle Force and Caption Action. We also spend an unhealthy but comical amount of time talking about Conference Championship Weekend in the NFL (before the Patriots cheated again), Zorro the Gay Blade and Hall & Oates...yes, you read that right - Hall & Oates. Enjoy!
Much like most the of the fandom, we were surprised and somewhat dumbfounded as the tinyish burb of Springfield, IL was selected as the site for our 2015 convention location. However, two special somebodies are pretty happy that Springfield was chosen and want to tell us why. It's coming up next on this very special edition of WOJM!!
For a long time we have teased at it. You have asked for it. So we have delivered for you! It is the first-ever (to our knowledge) feature length commentary of the cult 80's favorite, MegaForce. Find out what GI Joe and MegaForce have in common! Listen and find out...better yet, watch AND listen to find out. So grab some popcorn, the MegaForce DVD and join us for 90 minutes of some Hal Needham directed craziness!!
OK, we admit it, we are friends, fans and huge shills for our buddies at Boss Fight Studios. Since their Kickstarter campaign launched, we've done nothing but talk about these guys. Rightfully so! They are a very talented group of artists who worked on our favorite brand and we want to see them do well away from the corporate shackles. They are fans just like us trying to live the dream! The great part is, even you can help! Have a spare dollar? Maybe a spare $30? How about a spare $100 or more? EVERY DOLLAR AND EVERY BACKER TO THE CAMPAIGN COUNTS! It is a safe investment as the initial funding level has been met, but don't let that deter you from pitching in! Now, sometimes these Kickstarter things are a little bit difficult to understand. How do I contribute my money? Is it secure? Do they take my money now? What are the different contribution levels? What are stretch goals? Learn all about these questions and more in this special edition. Pardon in advance on some of the audio breaking up. We were stretching the bandwidth to its limits. However, settle in as we discuss their project (and have some fun at Chuck's expense) over the next hour. We hope you enjoy and when you are done, here is the almighty link to allow you to contribute. You won't be disappointed!
Fresh off of the 2014 G.I. Joe convention and with a mere week to go until the Kickstarter campaign is over, Mike, Chuck, and Justin sit down with MJ himself from Marauder "Gun Runners". Joining MJ is Dave Proctor from Boss Fight Studio as they talk to the guys about expectations for the Marauder "Task Force", the amazing response to the funding program, and the reasoning behind some of the figure design decisions. It's a quick one hour talk with some great "geek out" moments and some terrific insight behind the design and execution of the fantastic new Marauder "Task Force" product!

Gary is soooo happy it isn't Indy that he calls this this special edition #34. With that small gaff aside, it is a Dallas themed episode complete with anthems from the TV show and the Cowboys.

Join Mike, Gary, Eddie, Chris and Dave (when he decided to sit down) as they do a "jointcast" show in front of a live studio audience at Roll Out Roll Call 4 in Southampton UK. In segment 1 we will introduce the respective shows. In segment 2 we commentate on the costume contest. In segment 3 we interview RORC Special Guests - the guys from Boss Fight Studios. In segment 4 we dip into the mailbag. Lastly we wrap it up with what we got in and shout outs. Its a quick typical WOJM show, just with an accent. Enjoy!!
Back on August 24, 2013, Mike and Gary were on hand at COIL Con IV. Joined by regular guest host Jay and Chuck from Star Joes, the fellas recap the day; its ups, its downs and they wrap it up with a bow by sharing what they picked up during the show. It is a quick 20 minute show! Enjoy!
Join regular hosts, Mike and Gary along with regular guest hosts, Noted Author James Kavanaugh and Senior Comic Desk Correspondent Mo Hunger as the team spends a day at the inaugural Indy Toy and Comic Expo.
Since it is a TOY and COMIC and EXPO, the team decided to cover each aspect of the show, whether it was about GI Joe or not.
The TOY segment, the guys talk to James about his upcoming sequel to his RAHC Guide and do an on-hand review of the Eaglehawk helicopter - all the while we have the EXTENDED Cut of Retaliation playing in the background. (Some spoilers here, so consider yourselves warned NOW!)
The COMIC segment, the guys talk with Mo Hunger about the current state of the Joe IDW universes and her son Phoenix drops a promo for us.
The EXPO segment, the guys are joined by Celebrity Guest Host - MAXIMUS host of The Maximus Show, evenings on 103.9 The Bear from South Bend, Indiana - as they cover the costume contest.
Lastly, in segment 4 (aka the unnamed segment), Mike and Gary wrap up a full day on the follow and set the table for COIL Con IV - FEATURING STREET HAWK - coming up next!
It's a very laid back hour or so of on the floor reporting. Hope you enjoy it!
We would like to thank the promoters for including us in their inaugural show. We really enjoyed ourselves!
Editors note: one of the mic or mic cables seemed to be cutting in and out. Since it was a live event, there is very little ways to predict these even doing a sound check prior to recording. We'll get it squared away before our next live recording at COIL Con. We apologize in advance.
During this year's JoeCon, WOJM was allowed the very unique opportunity to host a panel for the attendees. Thus, "WOJM Live!" was born. Join Mike, Justin and Gary as they interview the GIJCC's own "Headman," Mr. Brian Savage himself. Yes, for the first time ever, the club submits to an interview...what will they say? Following the interview, we send Mike out into the crowd to talk about your one-word issues. What will the randomness result in when our own "Roving Mike" put a microphone in front of a stranger's mouth? So in case you've missed it (like Chuck), here is WOJM on-stage debut at the 2013 JoeCon in Indy! Enjoy!
So were our trio drunk or not for Special Edition #29...or did they lead you to think that? Well if you think that is controversial, wait until you hear this report, "LIVE" from the sales floor. Join Mike, Justin and Gary as they record directly out of the COIL Club's booth, which is dead center of the sales floor. The guys will report on what has happened thus far to this point in the show and interview friends and listeners as they stroll by. You will also recognize two of the personalities we talk to as regular show "contributors". Who could they be? You have to listen and find out. No beers were consumed during this recording, but if you hate the consumption of donuts, you may want to skip this one. Enjoy!!
We are here! We have our box sets in hand - well two of us anyway, plus we got the low down on the Attendee Bonus item and the super secret Convention Exclusives! Join Justin, Mike and Gary as they report to you from their suite high above Indianapolis in front of a live studio audience.
We're not kidding. If you listen to this and you don't like spoilers BEFORE you see the movie, then its YOUR fault. We recorded this a few weeks ago just hours after our man in the UK, Dave Tree, got to see an advance preview of GI Joe Retaliation. While the details were fresh in his mind, he joined Justin and Gary to give his full, no holds barred report of the film. You patiently waited THREE years since Rise of Cobra AND on top of that, ANOTHER NINE MONTH delay so they can convert it to 3D. Now it is OUR time and OUR turn. Is everything better in 3D? Find out next, in this monumental and landmark special edition of WOJM! Oh, and thanks to Jon Chu for the intro!
As of late, when most of us think of Retaliation and the color red, we think of how much of a knock out Adrianne Palicki looks in that red dress she is seen wearing in the trailers. Well, red means something else when it comes to worldwide premiere's of movies, it means the RED CARPET. Paramount UK afforded an opportunity for our man in the UK, Dave Tree, to attend the premiere and get a spot on the side of the carpet, we couldn't pass it up. Throw in an exclusive interview with Director Jon M. Chu, and it is a DONE DEAL! WOJM is red carpet bound. Check this show out as Justin and Gary comment on the movie and interviews, all the while throwing coverage back to London for updates from the premiere party. Music, ninjas and celebs abound! This is a CAN'T MISS special - once in a lifetime - edition of WOJM!
By popular demand, it's back! It's Ladies Night II!! The WOJM crew assemble a panel of female collectors and wives of collectors to talk to us about their collecting, relationships AND answer your questions that you've sent in. Rejoining us again in 2013 is Gary's wife Debbie and Mo from Moderately Geeky. New to the panel is the co-host of the Open Your Toys Cast, Mrs. McFavorite and the owner of our sponsor, Kokomo Toys, Amber. This was one of our most popular episodes of 2012 and included the infamous Chuck meltdown that you voted on as your most favorite Chuck Moment of 2012. If you missed it or never heard it, you need to hear it here first! There isn't much Joe discussed here and because of the nature of the program and how we know each other, there are a lot of inside and running jokes. Bear with us, because the info contained herein is some good stuff. It's the one night we sort of relax and let the show be about the ladies and lots of fun. There is no Chuck this year, but we have some flavor in the second half with our own Herb and spices added. So suck in that gut gentlemen, comb your hair and tuck in your shirt because the ladies are joining us tonight!
Yeah, so what there was a blizzard on the east coast. We have new Joes to talk about. Justin and Gary (joined by Joe Customs Podcast host Pluv John) recap the days events in this quick and very dirty special edition of WOJM Toy Fair Coverage. It was an awesome adventure which we will talk about more in length on our next regular episode, but until then, enjoy this episode. The first half of 2013 is shaping up to be pretty damn cool!
WAIT! Listen to this first before registering for JoeCon. Our JoeCon vet hosts (Chuck has still yet to leave his house), Mike, Justin and Gary offer up their combined 23 years of experience to help you plan your trip. Never been to Indianapolis? Thinking about a Pre-Con tour? What happens package pickup night? When can I get the convention exclusives? And the biggest question of all, HOW MUCH IS ALL OF THIS? If you have a question or concern, listen to this first and we probably cover it for you. If you didn't hear an answer to your question, email the program, firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will run down an answer for you. Don't do anything JoeCon related until you hear this first! See you in Indy - site of the most recent Patriots Super Bowl loss!!
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!
