GI Joburg Episode 110: Conventions

• February 28th, 2018

Here's a real mixed bag of an episode, with an overarching theme of "Conventions"... Cujo is bursting with tales to tell of his time at the Long Beach Comic Expo where he had, amongst other things, a run-in with Aubrey Sitterson! What went down? Only one way to find out! Also, Rob tables a discussion of cute vinyl Joes and Cobra's with creepy green eyes; Steve considers supporting HasLab in their attempts to crowdfund Jabba's Sail Barge (if for no other reason than to make Boba Fett die like a bitch); there is talk of the Python Patrol versus Slaughter's Marauders Convention set... and finally: are there any truly seaworthy boats in the A Real American Hero toyline? GI Joburg playtest a few firm favourites while shooting a YouTube video and the results may shock and amaze!

 

And after all that madness, if you still love us and want to see us at JoeCon this year, check out our Joe Fund Me on GoFundMe! We're gonna make it! This is awesome!!!

GI Joburg Episode 108: Farewell Toys R Us

• January 29th, 2018

Our first full roster ep recorded in 2018 and boy is there a lot to talk about. The JoeFundMe; The Barracuda vid, and now the Transportable Tactical Battle Plaform vid that just dropped; the uncertain future of Toys R Us has compelled us to wax nostalgic about our most treasured TRU memories; and the announcement of a proposed Joe movie in 2020 makes us want to revisit an old fave of a topic: what would we want from a GI Joe film?

 

It's a party. Jump in!

GI Joburg Episode 103: The Blind Master Chat

• 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.

GI Joburg Episode 101: Vintage/Modern Debate with Strydent

• 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"...
