GeneralsJoes Reviews the D & J Toys Falcon and Viper Gliders

I’ve talked about D & J Toys on the site before, mostly focusing on their very cool Rise of Cobra PIT companion set, which took all of the cardboard pieces and reconstructed them into actual styrene components.

Now, I had a chance to get my hands on their Falcon and Viper Glider reconstructions, and came away really impressed.  These are very vintage in style, yet a lot more durable than you might be used to.

Check out the review in my Miscellaneous section, or just hit up the direct link below.  Good stuff from another great fan-based project!

It’s a Christmas Miracle! What’s on Joe Mind Episode 70 is online

And in the true Spirit of Christmas, join us while we talk about female body parts for a couple of hours…

In all seriousness, this was a homecoming of sorts as we all got back together to do a real live episode for the first time in well over a month, and we had a ton of news to cover!  If that’s not all, the rest of the crew (alongside YoJoe guru Terry Dizard) spoke with Bill Ratner, the voice of Flint in the Sunbow animated series.

Make sure you don’t miss me and Chuck throwing down about Michael Bay and the Transformers franchise…  it’s one for the ages!

Joe: Retaliation confidence, and finally finding some middle ground with the great regional gatherings of Joe fans and the countless great independent projects.

It was quite the interesting year for G.I. Joe, and in celebration of 2012, I’m picking the top 12 news stories for the year.  They may be good, they may be bad, but the end result is a collection of events throughout 2012 that paints a pretty cool picture when we look back on it.  Click the Read the Rest of the Story link below for the run down.
