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.

Details revealed of the 2104 G.I. Joe Convention Custom Class

Those of us who were lucky enough to score a ticket to the official custom class for the 2014 G.I. Joe convention have been eagerly anticipating word of what the custom figure might be and what parts we should bring.

Well the G.I. Joe Convention Facebook page broke the news yesterday, and I gotta tell you, I’m pretty excited.

The custom character is slated to be “Chef” and at the show will be cast heads for 30th Anniversary Lifeline, a modified Firefly torso, and a plethora of 3D printed accessories, including some “Honey-Do House Bat” weapon attachments.  Pretty cool.

To give folks an idea of what the recipe might look like, check out the images below, and then click the “Read More” link to get the entire run down of this year’s custom class.
