Coil Con is over and Gary has some editing time again, so here is episode 66 of What’s on Joe Mind, the foremost G.I. Joe podcast on the ‘net! The guys give a little run down of what’s been going on in our pesky “real lives” to delay episode releases, and we also have the immense pleasure to speak with Hasbro designers Andrew and Trina about the work they’ve done for Hasbro in general and on the G.I. Joe brand specifically. Some awesome insight about the modern Joes design philosophy and the infamous Dollar Store figures! Hit up our Podbean page or check out the Embedded players below. Show notes as always are after the jump.

Its a full disclosure episode. What has the gang been up to since the last episode? We fill you in. Joining us in the first half for an interview…well, we recorded it a little bit ago is Andrew and Trina. Both have worked with Hasbro on the GI Joe brand in one form or another over the last 5 or so years. Hear what it is like behind the scenes at Hasbro and learn there is more to getting a figure getting to market then pouring plastic into a mold. In the news, the GIJCC store is OPEN FOR BUSINESS, INCLUDING the launching of the FSS! Sgt. Slaughter spills the beans of a rumor about his character being involved in the early drafts of Retaliation. Sideshow has a Storm Shadow statue. A character is born for Star Wars Clone Wars based off of Snake Eyes. After the news we are joined by Jon Cremeans from the COIL Club to talk about the 3rd Annual COIL Con at Kokomo Toys in Kokomo, Indiana. Before wrapping it up, we spend a bit of time talking about the WOJM Fantasy Football season. We’re back on track! Sit back and enjoy!
