Flag Points #42 - Season 3, Episode 1

• September 26th, 2013

We're back! Season 3 of Flag Points begins with episode 42 -- a show that includes several new features we hope you'll like. Friend, dedicated collector & Flag Points loyal listener, Page joins the crew to share his extensive GI Joe eBay research from the month of August in our first new segment -- Page's eBay Pages. Dave, Don & Rob open up the lines of communication to our listeners the new segment "Chatter." Thanks for the participation, everyone! Rob gets a little freedom to go "Off the Base" & mention related toy lines on his regular KO segment. Don't worry, we won't go too far off base. Matter of fact, Rob talks about The Magnificent Team on this one -- a team who are trying really hard to hang with the Joes. (Maybe a little too hard.) Don covers some serious ground on Scaled Up! Listen and see if you agree. Hope you like the new features! Season 3 has been green lighted.

Flag Points Micro Ep #10 - GeeWunner Brick Customs

• July 20th, 2013

If you checked out FP 38, you heard a little about what Austin (GeeWunner) was doing to get Joe Kreons proper, accurate rides and accessories. You also heard Andrew (Twitziller) drop some serious brick knowledge. Since then the two have joined forces to release an army of RAH-accurate vehicles and accessories with Austin artfully creating each one on the west coast and Andrew beautifully photographing and marketing them far away, mid-U.S. of A. As this is being written, a small battalion consisting of the Water Moc, Ferret, C.L.A.W., Night Landing, Polar Battle Bear, Sky Hawk, AWE and Weapon Transport are housed in at FP HQ. There are many more to come! Listen and get the latest intel. We think this project is about to take off! Do you think we'll see a black HISS soon?

Flag Points #41 - Vintage 12″ Joe!

• June 28th, 2013

It took us too long to record a show focused on vintage 12" G.I. Joe, but it's here! Great friend and dedicated 12" Joe collector, Matt McKeeby allowed Dave and Don to infiltrate Adventure Team HQ -- located on the top-secret, third floor of his compound to record FP #41 right in the middle of a complete, beautiful run of Hasbro Joes 1964-1976. It was a real treat for us to all be live, on location and we think you'll be able to hear the fun! We were sorry Rob couldn't make it. He needs to see the collection in person! See Matt's collection here: http://www.shout.net/~scg/collections/pages/mattmckeeby.html and on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUDR2x9u2gI&feature=youtu.be. Thanks Matt! What an incredible collection. Now, can someone just send him a race car box, please?

Flag Points #40 - 1/18th Toys

• May 31st, 2013

Every guest we have on FP makes us realize how many different approaches there can be to just one hobby. On our 40th regular show, we chat with Marc (yt74 on Twitter) who has just about every single 1/18th, accurate-to-real-life military toy produced! Rob and Dave could hang for a little while, but soon Don and Marc riffed back and forth about their passion - real-life military equipment and the toys that emulate the genuine articles. 40 is like one, enormous "Scaled Up!" Listen for Don's quiz question which yields a very cool, signed prize from Mr. Kirk Bozigian! Thanks, Kirk! And thanks to Marc for the chat and for his service to our country in the Army & Army National Guard! We hope to chat again! Some of Marc's customs may be found on hisstank - id: yt74

Flag Points Micro(ish) Ep #9 - Brian Cummings/Dr. Mindbender

• April 24th, 2013

This is our first conversation with an orthodontist! (That we know of...) On Micro/Macro 9, Dave chats with highly-entertaining and incredibly nice guy, Brian Cummings who voiced the ORIGINAL Dr. Mindbender on the Sunbow series and for the '87 movie. We talk about Brian's upcoming trip to Rapid City, SD for his very own clinic (and Midwest Joe convention) planned for May 18th! What an awesome opportunity to meet up with fellow Joe fans, get some great toys and meet the man himself! For more info, visit: http://barkingfridge.blogspot.com. Thanks a ton, Brian, for this incredible conversation and the silly bits I appreciate more than you know! This was so much fun, we must do it again, no? Listeners: Isn't it odd that Cobra never did PSA's for their own ranks? Hmmm...

Flag Points Micro Ep #8 - Sideshow Crimson Guard Review

• April 19th, 2013

Sideshow has impressed us yet again with their interpretation of the Cobra Elite Trooper! On Micro 8, Dave reviews the Sideshow Collectibles 1/6th scale Real American Hero Crimson Guard. This classic character from Hasbro's 1985 wave is incredibly detailed and very faithful to the original release. It's one of our fav SSC Joe releases to date, which was a little surprising, actually. These figs are so impressive in hand! If you don't have this fig and have been on the fence, we recommend picking him up now while he's still in stock! (Links on the left of our site.) Can't wait for Cobra Commander, Major Bludd and many others announced and teased to. We also have some requests of our own! ("Moore" Joes, please.) Thanks, Sideshow! Keep 'em coming!

Flag Points #39 - Kirk Bozigian - JoeCon/Retaliation

• April 16th, 2013

We always love it when Kirk joins us on FP and this time was no exception! On this show, Dave, Don, Rob and Kirk chat about Retaliation, Joe Con 2013 and GI Joe as a brand/property and beloved entity. Because we all love Joe, we can never help but talk about what we think the brand needs to survive and thrive when Kirk's around. This is one of our favorite topics to discuss when we have one of the key men on who made you want those articulated figs and detailed vehicles so bad you begged anyone with a wallet or pocketbook to buy you Flash or the Water Moccasin. This was recorded one day after Joe Con. One note -- we know it's "Adventure Team," in the US and not "Action Team." Slips can happen! Thanks again, Kirk! Here's to GI Joe becoming a phenom again like it was in the 80's!

Flag Points Micro Ep #7 - Wordburglar - Welcome to Cobra Island

• April 2nd, 2013

Skilled rapper, Joe fan and bud to the FP crew, SJ Wordburglar is about to drop a full-length, exclusively G.I. Joe-themed album on the world (Mu-a-ha-ha-HA!!) on May 30. We are big fans of his work and we're particularly excited for this release! You can get 3/12 tracks for free (or for a donation) at http://propsdept.bandcamp.com/album/welcome-to-cobra-island-free-download right now! If you check out this episode, you'll hear a yet-to-be-released sample from the album's intro track which we think is amazing! SJ knows his Joe like very few others and he has the skills to broadcast his knowledge in a way that needs to be experienced to be believed! Only Wordburg can do what you're about to hear. We wish SJ the very best and we are thrilled every time we get to "rap." Now somebody make a custom RAP VIPER!!!
