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.

GI Joburg Episode 89

• June 6th, 2017

Today we talk Toynography ("toy+photography" - let's see if it catches on...) with a master of the game: Paul Panfalone. He's a professional photographer and art director who is the man responsible for @plasticbattles. His stuff is good. Really good. Listen to the show; scroll thru his Insta; be inspired, Joburgers.

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!

GI Joburg Episode 82

• March 5th, 2017

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!

 

Awesome.

GI Joburg Episode 81

• February 17th, 2017

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.
