You have waited long enough so we're going to reward you with this 3 hour epic filled with 2 interviews that you will want to hear.  In the first half, our friends from Boss Fight Studios join us before they make the hop to Roll Out Roll Call 4 in the UK.  Find out what they are working on and what is next for our favorite former Joe Team designers.  In the second half we continue our interview series with the GIJCC meeting David S. Lane.  If you ever wanted to know how the club designs a figure and what Hasbro's role is, you will want to listen.  Also find out how close we are to learning what the 2014 incentive figure is.  It is an interesting interview with Dave pulling back the curtain to unveil a world we only known from rumor and conjecture.  You won't want to miss it.  To wrap it up, we dip into the mailbag, make fun of Justin's crappy Fantasy Football Team and report in on what we've got in over these last couple of slow weeks.  And don't forget, since this is episode 86, we will talk about our favorite figures and vehicles from '86.  Vintage talk ahoy!  Enjoy!!

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!

THE ROAD TO CHUCK BOWL II starts here.  Surely to be our least downloaded show since our pilot, Justin and Gary got together to record the 2013 WOJM Fantasy Football League draft.  We talk no Joe - AT ALL.  It's all football with some very bad analysis on our part.  THIS is why we don't talk sports all the time folks.  We're only good in short sprints.  So here it is, Justin, Gary and a chat room full of wannabe football General Managers.  Who will win Chuck Bowl II?  One thing is for sure, it won't be Chuck.

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.

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!

This is a fast tracked episode because of the timely nature of needing to get our interview with Frank Patz from EternalCon and our old pal, Mark Cheng of Operation Red Retrieval fame.  Frank and Mark give us the low down on the upcoming pop culture convention on Long Island, on Saturday June 15th.  Believe it or not, our man Chuck will be stepping out of the Emanuele compound to venture out into the sunlight.  Will he survive?  We'll find out soon.  But hear the interview first and if you are in the NYC area, go to the show and watch Mark's movie in glorious IMAX!  We cut some editing corners to speed getting this show out, so we apologize in advance for a sub par edit.  We'll go back sometime and clean it up.  In the second half, we met up with USA Today Lifestyle section writer Brian Truitt after he just broke the news on the GI Joe SDCC exclusives.  After a long wait, we now know what they are and how much will they cost.  What do we think of them?  Yeah...you gotta listen, I'm not going to tell you here.  Mike and Gary host this "almost a clip show" edition of WOJM.  It's one of our shortest regular editions in over 2 years!  Here's hoping you like the quality over quantity!  :)

Are you ready for The Full Force?  It's coming soon!

It's an FSS EXTRAVAGANZA!  We are joined by regular guest host Craig from The Fwooshcast and show friend and toy designer Eric Araña as we give our thumbs up or down ratings of each one of the figures we will see in FSS2.  Justin and Gary review their ratings from FSS1 to see if they got anything that changed their minds from their initial ratings way back in 2011.  Erik clues us in on what he's been up to since he left the corporate toy world and what he has planned for the near future.  Even though the news this go-around was light, we turn the mailbag upside down and answer the last bits of unanswered mail from the past year as well.  Lastly, we are proud to announce our upcoming spin-off podcast, The Full Force.  To learn more about it, you got to listen!  Enjoy!!

This is one of those episodes that took forever to edit, but hopefully it was worth the wait.  The show features not one, but two primetime interviews PLUS the returns of two of our most favorite guests.  First off are the returns of Bill Ratner and Kevin Watts.  Bill shares with us his thoughts of JoeCon as we have a very casual discussion with the man who will forever be the voice of our childhood Flint.  He also learns about JoeCon in other countries - will we see him at Roll Out Roll Call 4?  Next up is an interview we have been very eager to bring you, our interview with Lanny Lathem from the GIJCC.  This is the first, of what we hope is a regular segment we have with the club, so be sure to leave us your feedback on this interview.  Following the break we chat with Mr. Watts about his NJCC Salvo figure and share a little back and forth about the Joe internet culture's feedback on it.

Sorry for the timing on this release.  Our jobs have been very aggressive with our free time, so time that we used to spend on recording and editing was replaced by working and sleep this go around.  We are VERY VERY interested in your feedback on the GIJCC segment.  Send us your thoughts or leave them here in the comment section.  Enjoy!

The Doctor is IN!!  No, not GI Joe Doc, or Dr. Sheldon Cooper, or even Dr. Johnny Fever...although almost as equally as crazy as the old WKRP rock and roller.  This episode we are joined by Mr. Brian Cummings, or better known to Joe fans as the Sunbow voice of Dr. Mindbender.  Join us as we talk to Brian about his career, what's he's doing now and we get to hear more about the upcoming Joe show in South Dakota, Mindbender's Clinic in Rapid City on May 18th.  Sounds like a fun time and you folks in the upper plains states should check-it-out.  In the second half of the show, we are joined by our old buddy (and Chuck's crush) Arune Singh from Marvel Comics where we spend the next 45 minutes talking about Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, C2E2 and the upcoming San Diego Comic Con (or Comic Con International as Arune says).  Following our catch up with all things Marvel, we jump into a very abbreviated news segment concerning the box office returns of Retaliation, a look behind the scenes at Hasbro and Wave 5 of FSS 1...where Grunt, left us grunting...and Cover Girl left Gary grumbling.  Speaking of Gary, hear his report from C2E2 and why he is now on triple protection, super lockdown.  The things we do for our wives...

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!

The co-hosts (and Chuck) return after their trip to JoeCon and some much needed rest (or in Chuck's case, just another week at home).   The team dives right into a full recap of JoeCon, including the surprise 2013 Concept Case, a full preview of FSS2.0, and their thoughts on the Hasbro presentation - what as shown and not show therein.  Oh...and they briefly review their on-stage debut as WOJM went LIVE for their first ever, full blown, JoeCon panel.  After intermission, it's time to hit the mailbag.  There is some Retaliation and some good ol' ARAH discussion in there.  However, there is a lot more JoeCon discussion is to follow, including a very good question on how to make JoeCon more appealing to the masses despite all of the post show negativity that typically accompanies convention season.  Lastly, Mike crowns Justin the WOJM March Madness champ for 2013, but wait until who finishes second and gets a chance to come on the show...no, its not Dave Tree, although he did beat Gary.

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!!
