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!!!

Flag Points #38 - Brick/Kreo Talk

• March 31st, 2013

We at Flag Points have been surprised by our very positive reaction to Hasbro's Joe Kreo. We find ourselves anticipating the next wave of figs as well as sets containing some of our favorite heroes and villains. On FP 38, we recruited two building toy experts to talk all about bricks. FP friend and brick scholar Andrew (Twitziller) and GI Joe/TF+++ brick artist Austin (www.geewunner.com) were happy to oblige & cover building toys in great detail. Huge thanks to www.brickarms.com for their prize pack which will be given away on this show as will one of Austin's awesome Joe creations -- a faithful, custom brick-built Cobra C.L.A.W. ready for your CC Kreon! Make sure you listen to the whole show! (Think stickers for Austin's quiz question & check ebay for his incredible brick-built Polar Battle Bear, Ferret and many more to come!) Yo Joe and enjoy! Hope you catch a Kreon paratrooper at con!

Thanks for taking the time to chat, Tom. Oh yeah... and listen for a quiz question from Tom and win some cool Joe stuff! Thanks for that too, Tom. A few audio issues on this one.

• March 23rd, 2013

On Micro 5, Dave chats with 1/2 of the WOJM crew -- this time, Chuck and Mike -- about GI Joe Retaliation. We're all very excited to see it next week and we hope you are too! Dave's calling Regal Cinema today to get his ticket for Tuesday (available here with a free Regal Crown Club Card) and the WOJM boys are already ticket holders. After the movie, we'll talk to Kirk Bozigian and others to get reaction, but we're ready to roll. We think some stuff is going to blow up. What do you think? Thanks Mike and Chuck! It was a lot of fun and we hope to talk again. Yo Joe!

Flag Points #37 - Mary Mac (Lady Jaye)

• February 23rd, 2013

Mary Mc Donald-Lewis is one busy lady. But we're glad she took some time to stop by the top-secret Flag Points recording  studio to hang out with a few appreciative Joe fans! She'll have a chance to see many of you at Joe Con 2013, but here's a little preview for those who will meet her in person in April. As you'll hear, she is a very busy actor and so much more! Thanks, Mary Mac for being so gracious and generous with your time! And thanks for all you brought to the Sunbow toon. We know tons of Joe fans feel exactly the same way! Also on this show - our thoughts about Toy Fair reveals, a promo for a diabolical plan Dr. Mindbender is hatching and general good times spend with like-minded toy nuts. Have fun! This was way too much fun!
