YoJoe.com’s guide to Revolution is essential reading

It seems with every new comic day there are new issues tying into IDW Publishing’s Revolution storyline.  Even I’ve had a hard time keeping it all straight.

Thankfully, over on YoJoe.com, their comic aficianado antarctica is diving headlong into the Revolution story and has posted several updates in the YoJoe comic section.

You can see a number of links in this Revolution One-Shots forum post, which will direct you to all sorts of other pages with full information and summaries on all the one-shot comics released to date.  There’s also a general Revolution forum post as well, which links to a number of different comic book recaps for all of the associated Revolution stories.

It’s a great resource for anyone who wants to dive into Revolution and keep up to date with all of the associated titles.  Huge thanks to antarctica and YoJoe.com for providing this great resource!

Metric ton of 2016 G.I. Joe Convention Images on YoJoe.com

I know most of the attention at JoeCon focuses on the Hasbro booth and Club exclusives, but the truth is there is a ton of stuff that goes on at JoeCon beyond just the fancy new toys.

Phil from YoJoe.com went above and beyond this year as he always does taking images, organizing them and posting them in the always awesome YoJoe Photo Galleries.  Custom and Diorama contest photos, Cosplay, and yes plenty of images of new toys, too.

Check out the YoJoe Photo Gallery, there’s some awesome stuff to look at there.

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.

Check out episode 85 at Podbean.com (or the embedded player below) and the show notes can be seen below.

YoJoe Pro – A great resource for managing, selling, and trading your collection

I think I speak for nearly every G.I. Joe fan online when I gush about what a great resource YoJoe has been over the years.  Tracking the new figures, in depth and intricate listings of variations, vehicles with their drivers, and even dipping into the accessory realm with the great Whobit.

But have you checked it out lately?  And have you considered YoJoe Pro?  YoJoe Pro is like YoJoe on steroids…  you can track your collection based on the figures in the fantastic YoJoe database, and then sell or trade your extras with the simple click of a button.

Base membership is 100% free and allows you to organize your collection with checklists and provides unlimited listings to sell items in your collection for free.  If you item sells, there is a miniscule .99 (or 2.5% of sell price) fee, which is a fraction of what eBay would charge you.

But if you think you’re going to be a heavy user, consider one of the paid plans.  Starting at $20 per year (yes, less than $2 per month) you have all the same functionality as the free version, plus exporting your collection to Excel, and adding photos or notes to your collection entries.  It really is awesome functionality that can really personalize your own collection.  Along with this, you get 25 free sell listings per year.  There are other paid options as well, and each offers more free sell listings.

These are all amazing resources for maintaining your collection of G.I. Joe figures, which can get out of hand very quickly (I speak from experience) and I would strongly recommend signing up and kicking the tires.  I’m currently a member, and it’s been an awesome addition to my G.I. Joe life.

Check out the YoJoe Pro page for all of the details!  Yo Pro!
