Quite awhile ago, we had the unique opportunity to interview a couple of the guys from the Hot Toys Podcast, and while it took us a little while to get this posted (apologies Jim and Eamon) with G.I. Joe: Retaliation Roadblock on the precipice of release, it seems apt to get this out there now.
Along with talking with those fine folks, we cover all of the G.I. Joe news and information, and even touch on the big “NO JOES in 2014″ topic that seems to be rearing it’s ugly head over the past week.

Yes, we know the episodes have been a little more sporadic lately, but hopefully this four hour marathon makes up for it. We spend a healthy two hours talking to resident toy expert Mark Bellomo about G.I. Joe and the toy industry in general, and complement that great interview with some looks at recent G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club announcements, plus a look back at 2013 and a look ahead to next year.

Welcome to another exciting installment of What’s on Joe Mind! It’s tough to believe we’ve gone through 87 regular episodes (not to mention almost 40 special editions) but here we are.
We talk to the fine folks from Cobra’s 1st Legion Cosplay group, get to some good old fashioned G.I. Joe news and go through our favorite figures and vehicles from 1987. Check out our Podbean page or hit the embedded player below. Show notes, as always, are after the jump.
Every year the guys from What’s on Joe Mind release a special edition podcast to talk about the G.I. Joe convention, coinciding with the actual convention announcement. This year was no different.
Joining us on this show are three G.I. Joe, G.I. Joe Collectors Club, and G.I. Joe Convention experts, Barry, Dave, and Todd from the Regular Joes Podcast! Between all of us, there’s 60 years of JoeCon experience! We had a great discussion during this episode, talking about old school JoeCon memories, the whole 12″ vs. 3 3/4″ rivalry and a bunch of other great informative topics. We absolutely loved having them on, and if you like what you hear on this show, absolutely check out the Regular Joes Podcast.

Yes, it’s been a while since the guys from What’s on Joe Mind got an episode out, but trust me, this one was worth waiting for.
We bring on several industry experts all crammed into one three hour marathon of G.I. Joe goodness. Andrew, Erik, Trina, and Dave from Boss Fight Studios lend their expertise to the episode as well as David Lane from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club. This is an episode you do not want to miss.
The G.I. Joe news front has been somewhat quiet in recent weeks, so some of the parts of Episode 85 of the What’s on Joe Mind podcast dip back in time just a little bit. But then again some of the discussion here is timeless. We speak to former Hasbro designer Rick Schad who gives us some great insight into his time on G.I. Joe, and of course, with it being episode 85, we pick our favorite figures and vehicles from 1985! Vintage love for you.

It feels like it’s been forever, probably because…well, it’s been forever, but the latest episode of the What’s on Joe Mind podcast is officially online! Nearly three hours devoted to some great G.I. Joe discussion with a healthy injection of Kre-O/Lego love from Brickarms, and some great Marvel SDCC talk with our old buddy Arune.

OH MY GAWD! THA UMBRAGE! That’s right, Joe fans, producer and editor Gary put in some extra hours at the editing desk this week and was able to get out two episodes in one week. It’s almost like convention season.
In truth, a big reason why we wanted to get this episode is out is that we speak with Frank Patz, who is hosting EternalCon in Long Island this weekend. We wanted to get the word out there quick as this sounds like a great show featuring lots of toys, activities, and a special IMax screening of Operation Red Retrieval by big friend of the program Mark Cheng. But wait, that’s not all! On the heels of the dramatic ComicCon Exclusive reveals last week, we went right to the source and brought on USA Today Geek Pride correspondent (that should be his actual title) Brian Truitt. We break down exactly how these ComicCon exclusives get revealed and talk lots of good G.I. Joe talk. As always, check out the latest episode on Podbean, or the embedded players below.

G.I. Joe news over the past few weeks has been dominated by the Figure Subscription Service…whether it was the last shipments of FSS 1.0 or the exciting reveals of FSS 2.0, there’s been a bunch of talk about all of these figures, but a noticeable lack of that talk on the What’s on Joe Mind podcast. Well, with Episode 81 we are changing that in a big way with a huge Figure Subscription Service special! Not only are we talking FSS, but we brought in Erik Arana from Boss Fight Studios (one of the design brainiacs behind the new head sculpts for FSS 2.0) to discuss past and future FSS offerings as well.

Yeah, we know this episode was a long time coming, but hopefully it was worth the wait! I can’t quite describe how excited we were on the podcast when Bill Ratner actually reached out to us and wanted to come back on to discuss the events at JoeCon. So moved was Mr. Ratner by the reaction of the fans at JoeCon, that he really wanted to come and talk about it, and we could not have been happier to be the conduit for that conversation. Much less of an interview, and more a great conversation with a voice acting legend, it was a great discussion.
But that’s only the tip of the iceberg for this episode. Along with Bill Ratner, we also had a very unique opportunity to talk to Lanny from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club. Fresh off of the experiences at JoeCon, and neck-deep in the Figure Subscription Service 2.0 reveals, we get some terrific design insight and some very honest discussion about Lanny’s collecting background, experience, and his work with the Collectors Club. It was a terrific talk, to be sure.
Along with both of these great guests, we’re also joined by Kevin Watts, who comes on to talk about the New Jersey Collectors Convention and their 2013 Salvo exclusive! Yes, this episode truly has it all. Check it out on Podbean, or via the embedded players below. Don’t forget to click the Read the Rest of the Story link below for the show notes.
