Episode 134: Xmas Special 2018

• December 22nd, 2018

It Christmas time again! Rob, Paul and Steve chat about the issue that plagues all collectors around this time of year - making space for new toys! Steve calls it "downsizing"... Paul prefers to just call it "collecting goals". Whatever you call it, it's time we had "the talk"! We also weigh in on the Snake Eyes film, and cap things off with some festive fun!


HO HO HO Everybody, Merry Christmas!

Episode 133: Definitive Cobra La

• December 7th, 2018

It was the podcast that almost never happened... three times (at least). Maybe we should have taken the hint... But we defied fate and the powers that be to bring you a discussion of the greatest controversy classic GI Joe: ARAH ever produced: Cobra La (lalalalalalalalalala!).


We talk the three-pack, weird historical coincidences, and our VERY varied reception of this animation milestone. Plus a little much needed reflection and thanks-giving for the epic year that was 2018.


Yo Joburg everybody!

GI Joburg Episode 130: Action Force with Jim Godfrey

• October 27th, 2018

So our buddy and customizer extraordinaire Jim Godfrey had a chance meet up with Bob Brechin of Palitoy fame. Bob was there in the heydays of Action Man, and was the man chiefly responsible for the initial 1/18 scale Action Force figures. Naturally a full-blown, Full-Force discussion of those awesome oddities from the Island Nation follows as we get into some of Jim's most beloved British action figures and vehicles!

GI Joburg Episode 129: Duke VS Flint!

• October 11th, 2018

We've got long-time listener and pal Dave Cabal on this episode! The topic? Dave's of the opinion that it's Flint calling the shots on the GI Joe team, NOT DUKE! WHAAAAAT?!? But hear the man out, he may have some arguements that surprise us all.


We discuss fanatasy film castings for everyone's favourite black beret-wearing baddass and climb into a nostalgia topic that asks: if we could go back in time and re-live our childhood with our Joe toys would we do anything differently? 

Be sure to check out Twitter and Facebook for the ULTIMATE DUKE VERSUS FLINT POLL!

GI Joburg Episode 128: Definitive Snake Eyes

• September 28th, 2018

Two years ago we added a recurring segment to the show entitled "Definitive Sculpt". In it, we hoped to determine for ourselves which versions of which character are our "go-to's". We got the ball rolling with Storm Shadow and since then we've had our fair share of amicable agreements and devastating disagreements. It's now time to take on GI Joe's most enduring icon, the (mostly) black-clad, (almost always) silent, ninja/commando (or is that commando/ninja?!) - SNAKE EYES.


We also pit the FANG up against the Swampfire up against the Locust in an all-out chopper duel YOU determine the outcome of on our Twitter or Facebook polls. 


And we close out with a discussion of our earliest GI Joe memory. 


It's a bumper episode so pull some toys down from the shelf and enjoy!
