GI Joburg Episode 103

• November 21st, 2017

If you're listening to GI Joburg, chances are you're a little obsessed about toys. The tactile elements. The imaginitive elements. The nostalgic elements. But how would your enjoyment be affected if you could no longer see? In our 103rd session we interview Chris Huff, AKA The Blind Master about his love for toys both before and after losing his sight. It's a tale that needs to be told, and one that has certainly left the Joburg boys a little more in love with our collections than we were before. We can all stand to learn a thing or two from this man.

Happy Halloween from GI Joburg! And even if Halloween is not your thing, we know you're gonna dig a discussion of the team's definitive Evil Master of Disguise... ZARTAN! (...changes colors right before your eyes... ZARTAN!). In keeping with the theme, the boys rattle off their favourite fancy-dress Joe's as well as a pair of freakshow new Cobra agents you wouldn't want stalking you after dark... Mwahahahahahahaha!

GI Joburg Episode 101

• October 30th, 2017

There is a great divide in our hobby. GI Joe collectors are split right down the middle. You're either a vintage guy or a modern era guy. You might even be a girl... But my point is, sure, you can like both... but can you truly claim to like them both EQUALLY? In Episode 101 you will hear opinions from two polar opposites on how they view this conundrum. Representing all that is vintage is GI Joburg's Steve. Representing the modern era, we welcome back an exciting voice of our community - STRYDENT! Do you mix it all up and do battle royale? Or do you blow a gasket at the sight of Pursuit of Cobra figures climbing all over a vintage vehicle? It's time we had "The Talk"...

GI Joburg Episode 100

• October 9th, 2017

What's in a number, right? Well, if nothing else, it's a great excuse to feature some FANTASTIC guests on the show. In an episode loosely subtitled GI Joe: The Past, Present and Future; we go way back to some treasured childhood memories with Steve's oldest friend, Alastair Stokell; we talk figure and vehicle customization with a master of the game, Jim Godfrey; and we speculate on the future of GI Joe with a true pillar of the community, Bryan "HCC788" Lower. Pop a cork with us and let's ring in the triple digits! It only took six years...

GI Joburg Episode 99

• September 23rd, 2017

And now for something a little... illuminating. GI Joe is under fire, and Cujo has been in the trenches. In our ninety-ninth official outing we offer the mic up to our American correspondent for the truth on IDW, GI Joe, and the preeminence of Larry Hama. If you're in the mood for untangling a mystery or two, step a little closer...

 

And once again, if you wish to help our pal Timmer on his quest to donate toys to children in need, you can find the relevant vid at:

GI Joburg Episode 98 Operation Dragonfire, Day 5

• September 15th, 2017

Time to wrap up on another miniseries. Operation Dragonfire, love it or hate it, it's part of GI Joe history. And to quote the Sally Jupiter from Watchmen: "Every day, the future looks a little bit darker. But the past... even the grimy parts of it... keep on getting brighter." 

 

And you don't get much grimier than Operation Dragonfire. 

 

But dammit, I love it all the same.

 

Enjoy.

 

Also, please take a look at a very noble initiative by fellow Joe content creator on YouTube - Timmer. You can find the relevant vid at:

GI Joburg Episode 97 Operation Dragonfire, Day 4

• September 14th, 2017

This episode has it all! Double crosses! Triple crosses! The titanic struggle between Cobra Commander and Serpentor! Low-Light being a baddass! Zarana getting dumped! A spectacular aerial duel between some underutilized Cobra jets! And of course, a conspicuous yellow panty...

 

Since the one true CC is being reinstated, it felt right to pay tribute to his finest action figure incarnations.

 

So what are you waiting for?!
