Having missed the first edition of Ladies Night, I’ll be honest…I wasn’t sure what to expect with Ladie’s Night Part 2. Even with Chuck chickening out having a family issue to deal with the show was an absolute blast. The ladies rocked it out.
No real show notes this time around, just hit up Podbean for the latest episode, or check out the embedded players below!
By popular demand, it’s back! It’s Ladies Night II!! The WOJM crew assemble a panel of female collectors and wives of collectors to talk to us about their collecting, relationships AND answer your questions that you’ve sent in. Rejoining us again in 2013 is Gary’s wife Debbie and Mo from Moderately Geeky. New to the panel is the co-host of the Open Your Toys Cast, Mrs. McFavorite and the owner of our sponsor, Kokomo Toys, Amber. This was one of our most popular episodes of 2012 and included the infamous Chuck meltdown that you voted on as your most favorite Chuck Moment of 2012. If you missed it or never heard it, you need to hear it here first! There isn’t much Joe discussed here and because of the nature of the program and how we know each other, there are a lot of inside and running jokes. Bear with us, because the info contained herein is some good stuff. It’s the one night we sort of relax and let the show be about the ladies and lots of fun. There is no Chuck this year, but we have some flavor in the second half with our own Herb and spices added. So suck in that gut gentlemen, comb your hair and tuck in your shirt because the ladies are joining us tonight!
It’s been going on for 8 days straight, and there’s no break in sight. Over on Twitter, the already immortal Twitziller brings us the latest entry in his “40 Reasons G.I. Joe: Retaliation will be great” campaign! This time around, he puts the crosshairs on another vehicle from the G.I. Joe sequel…
This has been a piece of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation trailers that has been somewhat glossed over. While a lot of folks are focusing on the HISS, Water Moccasin, and Ripsaw, a quietly powerful looking helicopter has been swooping over the skyline. As Cobra Commander’s personal transport copter (or so it appears) this vehicle is simultaneously “real world” Little Bird and Skyhawk influenced. I love how Twitziller is calling back to helicopters peppered throughout Cobra history. He’s exactly right. The FANG was of course a mainstay of the Cobra airforce, while the Mamba has seen new life in recent IDW comic books as Cobra’s main attack craft. The Transport Copter is infamous throughout Marvel Comics as well. On a day that comes about two weeks after Hasbro announced the release of the upcoming Eaglehawk, it seems quite apt to talk up the merits of rotor-based aircraft in connection to the upcoming film.
Continuing the Road to Retaliation! I think most folks have figured out my review formula now, where I typically save the best for last. That will likely tell you what I think about the Lady Jaye figure. While some folks have complained about paint applications on her face, I haven’t seen any real evidence of problems on mine. In fact, my Lady Jaye is all good. Really good.
