It’s been a little while, but the WOJM are back with a new episode featuring all of the latest news and G.I. Joe intel… from like a month ago. Oops.
In all seriousness, it’s not like G.I. Joe news has been hot and heavy these past few weeks, and we touch on some great topics, even broaching the hot-button issue of G.I. Joe Shattered Glass! We also talk about 50th Anniversary releases, the Kre-O Terror Drome and many other great topics.
As always check out the latest episode embedded below or at our Podbean Page.
Not exactly a timely episode, but hey, not a lot is going on. No worries, #98 is right around the corner. You may be wishing for it after you hear Chuck ramble in the opening segment. We basically catch up on some old news, discuss COIL Con V and have a small roundtable on the Club wanting to experiment with Shattered Glass and more TF/Joe Crossovers…which make Gary very grumpy. Enjoy the funk!

SyFy “Face Off” with a G.I. Joe themed episode
Skinny’s recap of the Face Off Episode
Over on YoJoe.com, stalwart contributor “skinny” took some serious time during and after the Face Off episode last night and wrote up a great report on what went down and his opinions on the various masks and effects that the creators were able to come up with. He also pulled some great images as well.
Check out the great write up over on YoJoe.com and big thanks to skinny for taking the time to do it!
As we mentioned yesterday, September 16th brings us an episode of reality show Face Off focused on creating “Serpent Warriors” who could exist within the realm of the G.I. Joe universe! Well the preview for that episode was posted to SyFy’s website yesterday, and you can check it out now.
I’ve also embedded the promo below.
It seems like there’s a reality show for everything these days, but one has really stood apart from the crowd. “Face Off” is a show that pitches would-be special effects experts against each other in an attempt to win cash and prizes to support their career as an effects artist.
Each episode works around the idea of a “theme”, and apparently coming on September 16th Face Off will be presenting a “G.I. Joe” Theme. According to the SyFy Schedule of episodes, an episode entitled “Serpent Soldiers” will air on the 16th. The Wikipedia description says “Working for the G.I. Joe franchise, the artists use their talents to create snake-inspired super soldiers.”
The preview for this episode should air after tonight’s episode, so you may want to keep an eye open for that. Huge thanks to Twitter friend Twitziller for giving me the heads up, this will be one to watch!
