GI Joburg Episode 91

• July 22nd, 2017

Some folks out there might want to skip this one... We're tackling a subgroup that may well be the one that made GI Joe jump the shark. We are talking Ninja Force. And the opinions shared may shock you. Or amuse you. Hopefully both. We get into the art of negative reinforcement and the double bluff, courtesy of our man Psyche Out. And our definitive sculpt section deals with the first lady of GI Joe, a woman with no shortage of ninja connections, the one and only Scarlett. So check your spring action ninja moves and get ready to throw down with Slice & Dice & Everything Nice!

GI Joburg Episode 90

• July 5th, 2017

It's Episode 90! So we're talking the 1990's! Like duh. The neon. The spring-loaded missiles. The football lingo. We'll tackle it all. We answer the important questions like whether Low-Light should be blonde or beardy. And whether Aubrey Sitterson is winning the war on Cobra mind control...

 

Cowabunga Dudes.

Today we talk Toynography ("toy+photography" - let's see if it catches on...) with a master of the game: Paul Panfalone.

GI Joburg Episode 88

• June 1st, 2017

At GI Joburg, we pride ourselves on our originality. So for our 88th mission, we bring you a special on 1988! We talk the toys, the concepts, the characters. With no 'toon to back it up, who were these guys? What world called for Cobranauts, hostile environment troopers, and mutant frogmen? GI Joe was dropping big bombs and Destro was into something DEMONic. It was an interesting time. 

 

We kick it off with our definitive Iron Grenadier picks. 'Cos, what else?

GI Joburg Episode 87

• May 18th, 2017

GI Joburg runs down its favourite vehicle redecos to determine the finest reuse of a classic mold. We do a definitive sculpt section on everybody's favourite redeco Viper: Mercer! There's also an unexpected guest waiting in the wings. AND it wouldn't be a GI Joburg list show without a rundown of the WORST colour schemes to ever pollute our beloved toys. Shenanigans ensue...

GI Joburg Episode 86

• May 10th, 2017

PAUL. GOT. A. TERRORDROME.

 

So we revisit an ancient topic that's ripe for revisiting: The Big Three. Get 'em? Don't get 'em? We share some honest opinions about the Flagg, The Defiant, and the Terrordrome... now that we have all three!

 

Cujo calls it 'The Terrordome'. It's weird.

 

We also do some coverage of Cape Town's premier fan convention, with the very original name of FanCon.

 

Get it, Joburgers...

GI Joburg Episode 85

• May 5th, 2017

E.L.E, baby.

 

That means "Everybody Loves Eels". Don't forget it.

 

It's Episode 85 and GI Joburg gets wet and wild with one of the best figures of 1985. Possibly the best figure... ever. We also get into some fanmail on the topic of Joes you'd want to have your back in the big bad jungle... and the Cobra foes that would get you quivering in your boots.   

 

There's also a chick on the show. Oh. Yeah.

GI Joburg Episode 84

• April 9th, 2017

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!
