What’s on Joe Mind – Special Edition #21 Convention Announcement

It’s become a regular event… a landmark occasion…  a national treasure.

Okay, maybe that’s going a bit too far.  But let’s face it, folks seem to enjoy our Convention announcement special editions, and we work hard to try and provide as much information as humanly possible.  This episode should be especially enjoyable, what with the 60 minutes of Gary bitching and moaning and all.

Seriously…the 2013 Convention is in his home town and he complains?  Chump.

But there’s stuff in here for everyone else as well… what should you expect at the Con?  How much money is it going to cost?  What the heck is there to do in Indianapolis?  We answer it all right here!  Check out our Podbean page or the embedded player below, and Show Notes are after the jump.

What’s on Joe Mind goes back in time – The Pilot Episode Flashback!

This Special Edition has actually been online for a while, I just hadn’t gotten the link posted yet, because… well… honestly, I have no good reason.  I’m just a dirty scumbag.

For folks who have been listening for a long time, this will be a pretty neat blast to the past.  During this Special Edition, we look back on episode #0, the pilot episode…  otherwise known as Episode 0 BH (Before Hawk).  I will say it was pretty fascinating looking back on this episode and seeing what was “news” and what sort of conversation was sparked.  And hey, we brought Greg back!  Check out our Podbean page, or the embedded link below.  I’m also going to include a link back to our Special Edition .5, which is a remastered version of the very first pilot episode with better audio and some drop ins.  Check ’em both out.

Special Edition #20

Join Chuck, Justin, Mike, and Gary, along with the RETURN OF GREG as we look back at our pilot episode.  Was what was important then, still important now?  Have our opinions changed?  How has the news and episode held up under the stress of time?  Its a fun and unique look into our past, done in a way only the WOJM guys could do it.  It’s a laid back, no pressure, special edition, so sit back, relax and enjoy a trip back to April 2011.

Episode 0.5

Feels like the very first time, eh?  Yes, this is a remixed and remastered version of our original pilot episode published WAY back in April of 2011.  In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t seem that long ago, but when you dive into its topic matter, it seems almost like another time and another place.  What was the big topic of the day?  SKYSTRIKERS…yeah, that’s right, Hasbro just announced the price point for the 30th Anniversary re-release of our favorite Jet.  What else was hot in the news at the time?  How about Hasbro taking a big financial hit in its quarterly reports?  Feeling a loss at the Concept Case at JoeCon ’12?  Well, don’t forget about the concept presentation from JoeCon ’11.  Excited for Retaliation figures now?  How about Pursuit of Cobra wave 6 then?  Oh yeah, and how about 3 absolute strangers getting together to record the first, in what turned out to be, longest running Joe podcast to date.  Why is this coming out now?  You’ll find out in Special Edition #20…but you need to listen to this first.  It’s isn’t that much better than the original, but its shorter and hopefully the pain will be less too.  So kick that flux capacitor into action and let’s travel back in time to our first ever show!

Now here’s a list, huh?

I’ve been a long time fan of the Under Scoop Fire podcast, and the associated website, and when I was approached to participate in a panel dictating the 50 top G.I. Joe characters of all time I was only too happy to assist.

It was a massive project for these guys to put together, and they did an awesome job on it.

With thanks to GeneralsJoes reader Benjamin, Amazon.com has just dropped the price of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation and G.I. Joe: Renegades 4-Packs to $14.99!  This is a $25 discount over the original retail price, and in my opinion, it’s worth every penny.

Another Figure Subscription Service update from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club

The dock strike is over and our G.I. Joes are en route to Dallas!  After several months of no new product, I am unreasonably excited about receiving this mystery package in the mail, and I’m already jumping up and down with thoughts about which two figures will hit us first.

Check out the full email from Brian Savage below.

I hope that you are all having a great holiday season so far.  Today it was confirmed that our container was aboard a train and headed to the Dallas terminal.  

We still don’t have an exact delivery date to our warehouse, but we are anticipating that we will get some of the sets out before Christmas. 

The Christmas holiday will probably see the shipments split so please have patience while they are enroute to you.

We now anticipate that they will all be shipped before New Years.

Merry Christmas!
