Any G.I. Joe fan from the cheesy 80′s can find parallels between G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and the totally hokey 1980′s military film MegaForce. And yes, I use the term “military” very lightly. In this special edition we do a full blown commentary on the whole 90 minute film. I’m pretty sure the experience took a few years off my life, so you’d all better enjoy it.

Yes, the recording schedule has been a bit hap hazard, especially with no real news to talk about, but that’s changed over the past few weeks as the news for G.I. Joe has had a resurgence, especially with the 50th Anniversary line being released to retail! We also talk about our favorite Marvel Comics Covers and talk Coil Con.
I know a lot of folks have been commenting that we don’t record new episodes nearly as often as we used to… but the good side of that is, when we do, they end up being 3+ hour marathons covering all sorts of different topics! Episode 95 certainly falls into that category, talking Boss Fight Studio, the late Don Levine with business partner Kirk Bozigian, and voice actor Michael Dobson. Expect the same level of back and forth blather, and relive the excitement of the final 36 hours of the Vitruvian HACKS Kickstarter campaign.

We are painfully aware that we’re not recording quite as often as we did in the past, but we’re trying to make every one of them count!
For Episode 94 we excitedly welcomed back two long time friends of What’s on Joe Mind, Bill Ratner (the voice of Flint) and Arune Singh (Executive Director of Television Communications, Marvel Entertainment) to have some very different discussions.
Mr. Ratner provides awesome detail about G.I. Joe history, while also breaking down his exciting new endeavor at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. Meanwhile, Arune celebrates Transformers return to movie screens this summer (and the debut of the IDW comic book) with a spirited discussion about how a G.I. Joe/Transformers team up could work.

Sorry, Internet, we took a forced sabbatical for a little while as some technical issues nearly wiped out Episode 92 from existence! Thankfully Gary’s technical wizardry pulled it back from the brink, and we have it ready to go.
This episode is absolutely chock full. You want to hear about vintage G.I. Joe? We got Kirk Bozigian for that! You want to hear about stuff rolling with Boss Fight Studio? Andrew Franks is actually one of the co-hosts! You want to hear about some other cool projects from G.I. Joe fans? Chris Sims and Chad Bowers lay the hammer about Down, Set, Fight!
There is literally something for everyone in this one. Check out Episode 92 on our Podbean Page, or embedded below, and don’t forget to check the show notes!
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!

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.
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.
