What’s on Joe Mind Episode 28 is online!

Another great “back to basics” episode where the guys from WOJM and Terry (administrator of YoJoe.com) get together and just talk about G.I. Joe.  We answer some burning mailbag questions and tackle the mountain of news including the latest reveals for the FSS (Figure Subscription Service) and the first footage shown of G.I. Joe: Retaliation!

Some great conversation even though I was so tired I was repetitive and really not on top of my game.  Tune in to see if Gary edited me into something more comprehensible!  Or at least trimmed out some of my Jinx-related outrage.

Check it out at Podbean, or listen via the embedded audio player below.

When it comes to FSS Barrel Roll, THIS is what I was talking about!

You know when you’ve been buddies with someone for so long they seem to read your mind?  Well either that or they just think a whole lot like you do?

Over on JoeCustoms, Matthew has perfectly represented what I envisioned for the FSS (Figure Subscription Service) Barrel Roll, just using some Photoshop.  I think the figure is great, and it seems obvious that they’re going for a potential desert air team theme with him and Grunt, but I just think the Spy Troops color scheme could have been so much cooler.

Check out the mirrored image below for Matthew’s awesome Photoshop work.  It’s like he pulled it right out of my brain!


30th Anniversary Wave 3 In Hand images

Well, the notorious Gyre Viper is at it again, using his awesome connections to get the fandom some great images of upcoming product.  With the release of Wave 3 on the horizon, he’s posted a bunch of images of these upcoming figures over on JoeDeclassified.com.

He has given me permission to mirror the images on my site as well, but be sure to hit up Joe Declass for some more great insight and conversation.  Holy crap are these some nice looking figures!

Supposedly hitting in November, Wave 3 includes:

  • Ripcord (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
  • Scarlett (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
  • Tunnel Rat (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
  • Cobra Trooper (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
  • Storm Shadow (G.I. Joe: Renegades)
  • Techno Viper
It must be noted that Storm Shadow is not in here, and doesn’t seem as if Gyre Viper got his hands on that one.  The reasoning for that is unclear, but it should be noted that every case packout we’ve seen on Wave 3 so far includes Storm Shadow in the list, so I don’t think there is any reason to get up in arms about his release.  I will admit it’s very odd that he hasn’t been seen in carded form yet, but time will tell if he is actually in the upcoming assortment or not.  A big thanks as always to Gyre Viper for the images and the intel!  Hit up JoeDeclassified for more great discussion.
