Episode 157: Real South African Heroes

• November 10th, 2019

Viva AmaBokke Bokke, VIVA! The REAL O.G. Green Team! Please excuse the South Africans for beating their drum a little on this one. Last weekend our national rugby team, the Springboks, were crowned world champions in the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. This would mark our third victory since being allowed back into international tournaments after the lifting of a sports boycott in 1995. And we are overjoyed to be lifting that trophy again. In honour of sporting achievements, we chat about Joes and Cobra’s with unique sports interests.

But in case you were worried that sports fever had the slightest possibility of taking over the nerdy Joburg boys, fear not! We delve into a discussion of our definitive versions of Psyche-Out; an exposé on our favourite GI Joe and Cobra linguists; some Joevember art appreciation; and speculation on the origin of the Baroness’ file name! It’s a mixed bag filled with enthusiastic Joe goodness!

Just in time for your Halloween celebrations, GI Joburg assembles a four man team to embark on a perilous mission using only a small rubber raft and four accessories.

The machine gun.

The radio.

The knife.

Can they survive their ordeal?

And if you're looking to track down a copy of BL^CK BOOK, here's where the journey begins...

Episode 155: ‘85? ‘83? ‘88?! Which Is The Best Year Of Joe?!

• October 7th, 2019

Totally stole this idea off StarJoes... But if you were forced to select one year's Joe figures, one year's Cobra figures, one year's Joe vehicles, and one year's Cobra vehicles WITHOUT doubling up on any particular year - which do you pick?! And can you anticipate your fellow Joburger's choices? Some found it easier than others...


We also weigh in on HasLab's successful Unicron crowdfunding initiative and the very recent blockbuster, JOKER.


It's just short of two hours of shenanigans with the full Joburg squad.  Enjoy!

Episode 154: Shifters with Alastair and Rob

• September 27th, 2019

A number of times during this GI Joburg adventure, Steve's dropped hints about "Shifters" - a plotline that involved GI Joe characters... but quickly evolved into something far more. For a brief time, it was the best fun he had with his action figures. Quite possibly the best time he ever had with his two best childhood friends.

It was unlike anything to come before, unlike anything that came after. It was a fantastical time. And in this episode he takes childhood friends Alastair and Robert along for a nostalgia ride unlike any other. Join us as we span realities and enter the world of THE SHIFTERS.
