Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Mike, Gary, Jay, COIL Con, Kokomo Toys, Star Joes Chuck by whatsonjoemind on September 23rd, 2013

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!


Special Edition #32: LIVE at the Indy Toy and Comic Expo

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Mike, Gary, James, Retaliation, Mo, Indy Toy and Comic Expo, Maximus, Comics, Eaglehawk by whatsonjoemind on July 18th, 2013

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. 


WOJM Special Edition #31: “What’s on JOE Mind?” LIVE!

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, JoeCon, GIJCC, Brian Savage by whatsonjoemind on May 3rd, 2013

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!


WOJM Special Edition #30: JoeCon Day 3

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, James, JoeCon, GIJCC by whatsonjoemind on April 9th, 2013

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!!


WOJM Special Edition #29: JoeCon Day 1

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, JoeCon by whatsonjoemind on April 4th, 2013

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.


WOJM Special Edition #27: RETALIATION IS HERE!

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Justin, Gary, Roll Out/Roll Call, Retaliation, Dave Tree by whatsonjoemind on March 26th, 2013

First off...


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!  ;)


WOJM Special Edition #26: WOJM on the Red Carpet in London!

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Justin, Gary, Retaliation by whatsonjoemind on March 23rd, 2013

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!


WOJM Special Edition #25: Ladies Night II

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, George, Debbie, Mo, Mrs. McFavorite, Amber, Kokomo Toys by whatsonjoemind on February 24th, 2013

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!


WOJM Special Edition #24: Toy Fair 2013 Hasbro Coverage

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Justin, Gary, Retaliation, Kre-O, John, Toy Fair 2013 by whatsonjoemind on February 9th, 2013

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!


WOJM Special Edition #23: 2013 JoeCon Brochure Read-Along!

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Justin, Mike, Gary, JoeCon by whatsonjoemind on January 26th, 2013

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, 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!!


WOJM Special Edition #22: A look back at the 25th Anniversary/Modern Era Line

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary by whatsonjoemind on December 27th, 2012

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!


WOJM Special Edition #21: 2013 JoeCon Site Announcement & OH NO! It’s Indianapolis…

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary, JoeCon by whatsonjoemind on December 11th, 2012

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!


WOJM Special Edition #20: FLASHBACK 2012 - RETURN TO THE PILOT!

Posted in WOJM Special Edition, Chuck, Justin, Mike, Gary, Greg by whatsonjoemind on November 15th, 2012

Join Chuck, Justin, Mike, and Gary, along with the RETURN OF GREG as we look back at our pilot episode.  Was what was important then, still important now?  Have our opinions changed?  How has the news and episode held up under the stress of time?  Its a fun and unique look into our past, done in a way only the WOJM guys could do it.  It's a laid back, no pressure, special edition, so sit back, relax and enjoy a trip back to April 2011.


WOJM Special Edition #19: COIL Con III!

Posted in WOJM Special Edition by whatsonjoemind on September 10th, 2012

Mike and Gary are joined by the RETURN of former host Greg for this 40 minute wrap up of the show.  We are joined in progress by Kokomo Toys co-owner (because if we said OWNER, Amber would kill us!) Todd Jordan, GI Joe Initiate Fanfilm Director Fred Doss, IDW Artist Robert Atkins and admin Jay Hunger.  Its a whirlwind review of a fast paced day at COIL Con III at Kokomo Toys in Kokomo, Indiana.  Join us, will you?


WOJM Special Edition #18: 2012 Canadian JoeCon!

Posted in WOJM Special Edition by whatsonjoemind on August 31st, 2012

For the second year in a row, WOJM goes north to cover the Canadian Joe Con. Join WOJM co-host Gary, Noted Author James Kavanaugh, Pluv John from, and the voice of the CJC Ryan aka Scramble as the report directly from the floor of the 2012 Canadian JoeCon. Ryan reviews the set with Gary and gives insider info on their creation and background. After the review, we go forward in time as WOJM got a chance to drop a recorder in front of the Canadian JoeCon staff to get the lowdown on the 2012 event and the future of the convention. Before wrapping up, we go back to the sales floor with our traveling co-hosts to find out what they got and any last minute shout outs before heading back home. If you liked what you heard, we encourage you to attend next year. We promise it won't be a time you forget!

WOJM Special Edition #13: The Retaliation Reaction!!

Posted in WOJM Special Edition by whatsonjoemind on May 23rd, 2012

It is the news NO ONE wanted to read.  It was the news NO ONE wanted to believe.  Regardless what no one wanted, it is the new reality of the motion picture dedicated to our favorite hobby.  Instead of being released June 29, 2012, the movie that we've waited so long for and seemed only a few weeks away got moved to March 2013.  Join WOJM co-hosts Chuck, Justin, Mike and Gary along with special guests Arune Singh from Marvel Comics and Brian Truitt from USA Today as we have a roundtable discussion with a number of community leaders about what this move means to the line and its future.  While disbelief and frustration are the theme of the night, the cast looks hard toward what if any silver lining can be found and attempt to predict what the next 9 months will bring.  Its a raw, unedited recording of a roundtable of fans picking up the pieces from the day.  May 23, 2012 is the start of a new reality for GI Joe.  Hear what the gang has to say...
