Episode 227: Sky Striking

• December 6th, 2021

We are into the final days of the Skystriker HasLab... maybe...

Time to sink our teeth into this meaty topic that has the Joe community in a flat spin stall engine flameout.

Also we talk art with Cujo!

Episode 224: Memory Dump

• November 15th, 2021

So GI Joburg has been around for 10 years (by our reckoning at least!) and we wax nostalgic with the help of listener responses on the topic of their favourite GI Joburg memories!

But it's not all pure self indulgence. We chat RoboSkull Mk II, Super7 Ultimates wave 2, the return of Hooded Cobra Commander 788, and Steve's return to Transformers...

Episode 223: The Toys We Flipped On

• November 10th, 2021

*This is a re-upload! Not deja vu...*

So, you thought you were always a visor kinda guy, but now you're all about the googles... Or maybe the hood was your jam and now you want nothing to do with it in favour of the mirrorface. In this episode the boys discuss toys they always used to like but now have no time of day for; and toys they never gave a second glance before and now rock their world.

We're also cracking out our Xmas wishlist! Guess we'll be encouraging our loved ones to listen to this ep!

And on an (almost) unrelated matter, check out HCC788's excellent assembly video of a vintage Brawler here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulm6-geu6y0&t=1284s

Episode 222: Toy Diaries

• November 1st, 2021

In Episode 220 Steve undertook to play with his GI Joes for at least 30 minutes each day. No photo taking, no video shooting, no blogging. Just pure play. Maybe even a bit of plot.

Paul wound up joining the fun. Rob too.

Here are their tales...

And of course we get into the 1027 Hasbro Pulse reveals. Cobra Officer and Alley-Viper.

With Hasbro PulseCon 2021 in our rearview its time to talk reveals.
