• May 26th, 2020

In our 172nd outing we welcome Corbra Lang to the playmotion/stopmotion fold! After the release of his epic showdown "RAGING STORM" on the GI JOBURG YouTube channel, and on the eve of releasing the even more epic "SNAKEBITE" film this coming weekend (05/30/2020), we wanted to get the scoop from the creator of these awesome adventures. Using a mix of techniques including green screen, stop motion, and even a talking pet animation mobile application (!!!) this Canadian fella is one of the pioneers of this new way of playing with your toys.

 

Dare I say a new artform?

 

I dare! 

 

Plus Steve's got a new toy, we sink our teeth into the recent artwork reveals surrounding the 6" Joe, and address a terrific listener question we missed from last ep.

Episode 169: Garrido, The Pyramid of Darkness, 6″ Joes… And JD Onesi

• April 27th, 2020

169 is filled to the brim! So much so, we invited JD Onesi from the General Geekery podcast to help lift the load. We pay our respects to the late master, Hector Garrido, packaging artist for the initial toys and one of the key men instrumental in making GI Joe the most enduring toyline of all time. We get JD's honest opinion on the 6" line of Joes. And we reopen a debate that has raged previously on the pod: is the Pyramid of Darkness junk or gem?!

Selected episodes of the classic Joe cartoon are currently available FREE on Hasbro's YouTube account. So relive the adventure with us!
