Poor Gary has been trying for over 90 episodes (including Special Editions) to try and track down Marauder John and get him on the show, and he finally made it happen. Marauder “Gun Runners” is one of those companies that has been around for a long time in Internet years, and it’s hard to remember a time before they existed, but we talk to John about what got him started down this path and some of his collecting origins.
It was a fascinating discussion with a guy who has had a huge influence on the hobby through his weapons store, and even though I’ve talked to him a number of times over the past many years, it was great to “get together” with him again and talk. Any Joe fan will gain a wealth of knowledge from him, and on your next order mention that you heard him on the Podcast! He’ll throw in a free weapon for ya! And of course we want to encourage everyone to visit the Marauder “Gun Runners” Kickstarter as well to help fund the next series of weapons. It’s an awesome project with some awesome potential results, and worth contributing to for sure. Click here to contribute.
But that’s not all…the entire show was chock full of Joe news and discussion as it always is, and I had to leave early, so you even miss the GeneralsJoes corporate influence. Click on the embedded players below and Show Notes are after the jump.
WE FINALLY GOT HIM! That’s right, we captured ourselves a real marauder, a gun runner so to speak. That’s right, after 90 plus combined episodes, WOJM finally gets to sit down and talk with the famous Marauder John of Marauder, Inc. We dive deep into his mysterious past to hear about how he started gun running and why. We also learn about the future of Marauder, Inc. with his ongoing Kickstarter Project and Campaign. We are excited to bring this interview to you, it has been a year in the making! In the second half of the program, we are joined by super substitute host AND Noted Author, James Kavanaugh. We also have Dave Draiper from Toy World Order join the ranks to add commentary to our mailbag and news. For the first time in a while, we had a packed news schedule. The GIJCC released their October newsletter. The fellas at Roll Out Roll Call unveil one of their show customs for 2013. Robert Atkins shows off some more awesome Joe artwork on his blog. Justin reviews some of the Retaliation W2 3 pack figures. Hasbro says they will be at NYCC in some capacity. Plenty of stuff to keep this episode timely…somewhat.
For you non sporting members of the fandom, yes we do talk about sports again, but if you wish to skip it, you can fast forward from the 1:30:38 mark to 1:35:38 mark.
Don’t forget, help the man who helps us. Open your wallets and piggy banks most generously and give to the Marauder GR Kickstarter Project and Campaign. It doesn’t matter how much you give – $1, $2, $5, $25, $50, $100, $200, or more…just as long as you GIVE. The project is worthy and the rewards alone are WORTH your consideration. Help shape the future of our hobby and the future of gun running, contribute to the project and campaign TODAY. Oh and don’t forget, mention the podcast to him when buying your next purchase from him and receive a free item!! Let MJ know you heard him on WOJM!! Thanks!!
