Deep dive with Stephen, Paul, Robert, and Cujo into the new live-action Ghost in the Shell 2017 movie as GI Joburg discusses everything to do with Ghost in the Shell, consciousness, cyborgs, souls, and technology gone wild. We also talk about our newest GI Joe major acquisition, and choose our definitive tech accessories and figures. And to wrap things up, we wonder how GI Joe could have been done differently if the Japanese had come up with the Real American Hero concept. Yo Joe!
Come join us in 1983 as we explore the year's selection of figures and vehicles. Find out what our favourites and least favourites are, and how Rob gets out of a burning building with more toys than Paul, Stephen, and Cujo combined.
Ever wanted to meet up with three pals, assemble your troops, brief them on a perilous mission and then let the adventure begin? Yeah. Us too. But [sigh]... adulting. Well, GI Joburg is gonna bring you four missions where one of us briefs, the other assembles the troops and equipment and together we weave the plot! Don't judge. It's how grown-ups play with their action figures.
Also, Mike Zeck comes under an artist spotlight with some inside info from Cujo;
We do a righteous Postbox: The Pit section where a handful of your mail is discussed;
And our definitive sculpt section deals with none other than the Battle Android Trooper!
Introducing STRYDENT! An impromtu Skype call between Paul and Steve and a GI Joe super fan from the States called Ewart morphed very quickly into a GI Joe conversation worth putting into the world. We talk about what we'd do if we were calling the shots in Hasbro; the debate around being a vintage collector, modern era collector, or both; and Doctor Doom! Yep. Doctor Doom.
Battle Force: 2000. It's a broken concept. Whether it's the figure design; the characters and their representation; the vehicles; the gimmick... it's fair to say that these guys missed the mark somewhere along the line. So with the advantage of hindsight, GI Joburg undertake to fix BF2K. How can we make these toys desirable? How do we make sense of GI Joe's "Soldiers of the Future"? Is it even possible? Hit 'play'!
Also, expect much gushery over our new custom figures.
