What’s on Joe Mind Convention Coverage – Part 1

So just prior to the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention, the What’s on Joe Mind crew got together and recorded Episode 93…this was, of course, before Episode 92 was even finished yet, but we wanted to get Convention preparation online as quickly as possible.

From the floor of JoeCon we kept the recorder flying, and have posted a number of quick “One Shots” from Package Pick Up night and from the Custom Class itself.

All told we recorded several hours worth of content throughout the weekend, including many of the seminars, and pending approval from The G.I. Joe Collectors Club, we’ll hopefully be able to post some of those.  Until then, though, enjoy our coverage (so far) of the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention!

Episode 93

Why episode 93?!  Well, because episode 92 is not ready yet.  However, this one is ready and why make anyone wait?  It’s our “LIVE” show before JoeCon.  Once again we are joined by the Vice President of The Crappy Figure Brigade, Don Anderson.  We finally let Chuck talk a little wrestling, but really this episode is about one thing, JoeCon.  The guys will preview the convention schedule and will give you an up-to-the-minute AccuWeather forecast for Dallas. It’s raw and unfiltered and contains 50% more Chuck – so play this out of earshot of kids.

What’s on Joe Mind Episode 91 is online!

Yes, the What’s on Joe Mind crew went radio silent for a little while, but now we’ve come roaring back, even if we are missing our trusty producer Gary.

While Gary continues to take a little bit of a break, we spent this issue talking customs with the awesome folks from the JoeCustoms Podcast.  The episode ends up being a very informal kind of “chew the G.I. Joe fat” round table, where we ask some customizing questions, they ask us some questions, and we just hash it all out.  We did take some time for news and mailbag questions, though!

What’s on Joe Mind – Episode 90!

It’s been a bit of a break since we posted our last episode, and it seems like the world of G.I. Joe has turned inside out and backwards since then.  Excitement about Toy Fair blitzed the online community, only to be defused by the rumor that Hasbro will not be in attendance at JoeCon, and an underlying uncertainty about the future of our favorite brand.  We also had a chat with none other than BJ Ward, the voice of Scarlett from the Sunbow animated series!

Well, to celebrate the sure fire collapse of all toy related patriotism, Gary took a strike from the show and is absent from Episode 90.  Actually, Chuck is, too, but we figured that was more due to laziness.

However, Mike and Justin called in the reserves as Dave from Toy World Order and the immortal Erik Arana from Boss Fight Studio joined us on the program!  Check out the latest episode on Podbean or embedded below, and hit up the Show Notes after the jump.

Episode 89 of What’s on Joe Mind drops some Hot Toys goodness!

Among many other things…

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.

What’s on Joe Mind Episode 85 is online!

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.
