It's the eve of the big movie for the 4 hosts, but before we can go see the movie, we got to get this episode out of the way. Former Hasbro Exec Kirk Bozigian joined us a couple of weeks ago (sans Gary) for a nice little interview. If you remember him from JoeCons past, and especially last year, you'll know he's a tad bit on the controversial side with his opinion. What does he say this time? C'mon man, you know the drill, listen and find out! In the news we talk Roll Out Roll Call in the UK; of course the movie, JoeCon and the FSS; plus Cobra Commander is shot into space, your listener emails AND we announce our big plans for JoeCon in Indianapolis! Download - listen - now!
It is an extended episode of WOJM as we review the year that was 2012 and preview the upcoming 12 months with high hopes of a big year. However, before we get to that we have a very special holiday treat to share with you, an interview with the Sunbow voice of Flint, Bill Ratner. Jumping into the news, the FSS has launched, The GIJCC annouces a second run of JoeCon 2012 sets, USA Today looks at IDW's new Special Missions title, JoeCon will be in Indy, Amazon lowers 4-packs to crazy levels, Chuck thinks wrestling rumors concerning Retaliation is legit, and Hot Toys gets a Retaliation license! Whew...so much for slow news, eh?
For the year in review, we remember the first of the Retaliation toys to hit, the uncovering of the "Dollar General" Joes, Retaliation gets delayed, and WOJM experiences some major growth.
In the 2013 preview, we talk about our excitement for the film (still) and whether or not we will see it in 3D. Further we bat around the possibilities of the 2013 JoeCon set, IDW's "relaunch" of the main comic and briefly talk about Kre-O's
Even though we are posting this ON Christmas Day, we go over a Holiday Buying guide in the event you need ONE MORE Joe gift to buy for that decerning fellow collector of yours.
Lastly, we talk about those we lost in 2012, crown the Best Chuck Moment of 2012, get the lowdown from the Fantasy Football Desk and we wrap it with our regular "What we got in..." and "Shout Outs" segment.
We hope you enjoy the show! Thanks for helping us make 2012 the best year for WOJM yet! See you in 2013!
