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.
Presenting the conclusion of our MASS Device commentary! Feel free to watch along, with us in your ear, or check out what our pal Michael Mercy does with the audio on YouTube here! Yo Joe!
And here is part four! As always, dear friends you are encouraged to rewatch the first GI Joe animated miniseries with us, or you can watch the awesome YouTube presentation done by our Canadian pal, Mike Mercy here.
Here it is! Available here and on YouTube, GI Joburg's collaboration with Mike Mercy enters it's third chapter. Get your DVD cued up because we're gonna add commentary to episode 3 of the MASS Device. Do yourself a favour and check out what Mike does with the commentary on YouTube here.
These are so much fun, we did another one! Any reason to watch the old 'toon! So here is GI Joburg's commentary on episode 2 of The MASS Device. Watch along with us!
As if you needed an excuse...
So this Canadian fella called Mike made a USS Flagg base based on the base we built. He got a hold of us and a bromance was born. So we decided to do something new with our new friend: cartoon commentary! So pop in your DVD or find the ep on DailyMotion and watch the very first GI Joe cartoon episode with us in your ear!
Happy 2017 GI Joburg friends! We did it last year with The Force Awakens, so we guess it's a tradition now! But hey, don't we have Star Wars to thank for our beloved GI Joe toyline after all? Rogue One tops the agenda. We talk toys, the film, even a bit of conspiracy theory. Black-clad action figures feature in our definitive sculpt section. And of course, a little bit of the indomitable Carrie Fisher.
"General? To me she's royalty."
Seasons Greetings from GI Joburg! And in this Yuletime we take a break from liquor-soaked family gatherings to speak about Joes in isolation... Who is indeed the loneliest operative? Our definitive sculpt discussion kicks us off with Joe's premier survivalist, Outback. And just for kicks, we throw in our top five single seater, small vehicle list.
Enjoy in a group.
Or like Han.
Introducing POSTBOX: THE PIT. We've recieved some terrific correspondence since we've started out. It's time we published a letters' page. This could become a regular thing. And for our definitive sculpt we're talking one-eyed soldiers. ARRRRRR. There be parallel universes, HAVOC and Cross Country appreciation, discussions of poor ol' Storm Shadow's allegiances, we talk Tombstone and the new releases... it's a furious hour and some change. Enjoy! And don't forget to write us...
