Michael Bell doing an AMA on Reddit RIGHT NOW

If you ever had any burning questions to ask Michael Bell, NOW IS THE TIME.  He is doing an AMA on Reddit to support a project his daughter is working on.

You can check out the Reddit AMA right here, and even if you don’t have any questions for him, considering passing along a “thanks” to the original voice of Duke by supporting his daughter Ashley’s project on Indigogo.

So far the thread has already been very insightful!  The full details are below:

I am turning to you to help support my daughter, actress Ashley Bell ( The Last Exorcism, Love and Air Sex, and the just released Sparks), get her documentary Love and Bananas off and running. She went to Cambodia last year to film a short on the rescue of 2 abused captive elephants from a logging camp, and their subsequent release to the Cambodian Wildlife Sanctuary. Once there, she realized a full documentary was needed to present the plight of captive wild elephants as well as the disappearing rain forest, and wildlife in that region. Hence her campaign to raise funds to complete her documentary. I am prepared to answer all of your questions honestly and with I hope some wit.

Here is Ashleys indigogo website, please help us!

Michael Bell joins BJ Ward as a special guest at 2014 G.I. Joe Convention

In the Convention brochure that was released a couple of days ago, the G.I. Joe Collectors Club revealed that the original voice actress for Scarlett BJ Ward would be attending the G.I. Joe convention in 2014. Well, the Collectors Club revealed today that Scarlett will have Duke by her side in Dallas, Texas!

That’s right, the immortal Michael Bell will be joining BJ Ward as a special guest of the 2014 G.I. Joe Convention in Dallas. Considering how awesome the voice actor reading was last year between Bill Ratner and Mary MacDonald-Lewis, I can only imagine what it will be like this year.

Make sure you keep checking GIJoeCon.com for all of the latest information from the G.I. Joe Convention!

12 for ’12 – GeneralsJoes Top 12 What’s on Joe Mind Episodes of 2012

So did you think 2012 was a slow year for G.I. Joe?  While the fine folks behind the What’s on Joe Mind Podcast did drop down their recording schedule a bit to accommodate a slow trickle of Joe news, there were still many exciting G.I. Joe events to talk about.

From animated voice actors to movie news and toy reports, What’s on Joe Mind covered the gamut of G.I. Joe news and events for the year.

Even with a much slower recording schedule in the back half of 2012, it was tough to pick out 12 isolated episodes, but with Gary and Mike’s help, somehow I made due.

G.I. Joe: Renegages Episode 6 & 7 online at Hubworld.com

With a delay likely due to the holiday, the latest two episodes of G.I. Joe: Renegades have now been uploaded to Hubworld.com!  Largely regarded as two of the best episodes so far of the season, the Homecoming 2-Parter features action, easter eggs, and a few very cool character cameos.

The best part, to me, about this is seeing the episode in high resolution.  I gotta say, it looks really great on the Hub website.  Much better than even on my HD TV.

Check out the two episodes at the links below:

Also don’t forget to keep your eye on the Renegades SuperSite which has an episode guide, character rundown, and many other great Renegades rich features that fans will love.

G.I. Joe: Renegades Episode Six Promo Online

I learned my lesson last week, and made sure I had the DVR rolling all night tonight, so I could grab the promo clip for next week’s episode of G.I. Joe: Renegades. Initially I wasn’t sure if I was really looking forward to next week’s episode…looked like typical somewhat ridiculous Christmas themed fare.

Uhh… no. The clip looks awesome. Snake Eyes kicking some sort of arctic trooper off his snowmobile… Baroness and Storm Shadow flanking Duke… COBRA TROOPERS! W00t!

Anyway…check out the embedded video and some screencaps below.

Information revealed about Episode 6 of G.I. Joe: Renegades

So we just finished checking out Episodes 1 and 2, and here we are finding out stuff about Episode 6!  Yeesh.

Thanks goes out, once again, to fellow Renegades nutcase kennywr22, who hit up the familiar MSNTV.com website and dug out the following Renegades intel about Episode 6 (Homecoming, Part 1):

“Duke goes home to protect his family from Cobra; the team infiltrates Cobra’s Christmas party.”

We heard rumors before the show started that Michael Bell and B.J. Ward (Sunbow’s Duke and Scarlett) would be doing the voices for Duke’s parents…this looks like where we’ll hear them.

Homecoming (Part 1) is currently slated to air along with Part 2 on Christmas Eve.
