FP 35 will make you soar, loop and glide high in the sky! Well, it will be fun for you if you like Joe gliders, anyway. On this episode, Rob and Dave talk to Joe (from www.djtoys.muchtobuy.com) who is very busy making high-quality, properly-proportioned gliders for your favorite 3 3/4" Joes. They don't fly, but they are amazing for display. Listen as Joe describes his current projects as well as his very exciting, very fragile possible future plans. We hope they take flight. Check out Joe's amazing Missile Command HQ repro while you're visiting his site. Amazing work! Thanks, Joe. Also - Rob talks about his trip to his local Lanard HQ (a very dangerous place for our favorite KO fan to set foot.) A huge thank you to SJ Wordburglar and Timbuktu for our new intro! We hope you love it like we do! Yo Joe!!
Our first 3D podcast! No glasses needed! On 34, Rob, Don and Dave are joined by new friend and fellow Joe aficionado, Carson, of the simple but incredible new site - www.3djoes.com. If you haven't been there, stop reading and check it out! One look explains the whole concept. And what a great concept it is. Carson not only runs his site, but he has one of the most impressive carded and AFA'd 80's Joe collection this side of Leo DiCap's batallion. (Leo - We have an opening for Dec. if you don't have anything booked. We'll call your agent.) We also cover some news, fitness-related Joe memories are shared and Rob hits us with another Knock it Off... Mais, Oui! So this Halloween, get yourself a bowl of candy and fire up the iPod. It's time the podcast world got multi-dimensional. Thanks for the awesome conversation, Carson! Hope to do it again!
Season 2 has begun! On this one, Dan Uthman of www.gijoegraphy.com joins us to unveil his massive G.I. Joe map that pinpoints the birthplaces of every single G.I. Joe from 1982 - 1994! Are there other points of interest? You bet! Could there be a few Springfields on there? Yup. This project could develop into something very interesting... Who knows what will come of Dan's 200+ hours of work. It certainly brought smiles to our faces. Also enjoy Dan's riveting Joe/toy memories, Don's "Scaled Up," as well as Rob's new segment, "Knock It Off!" Go ahead Rob... Knock it off. Yo Joe! and stay tuned for more episodes! Thanks, Dan! We will talk again!
It's a mad, mad, mad, mad Flag Points! Hard to believe we've been at this for one year, but here we are -- this time joined by a brigade of friends we've made just since episode 1! Listen as many call in to chat and wish us well. A very special thanks to all our fans and guests who have helped us in every imaginable way. We simply couldn't have done this without help. And thanks for the birthday gift, Hadleigh! Listen to the first minute of the show and hear what we're talking about! Thanks to those who called in and left a message on the FP secret bunker hotline! We had a blast recording this one and we hope you enjoy it. Here's to great season 2 vol. 1 in September! Yo Joe!!
Happy Birthday to us! The Capital Region Small Joe Collector's Podcast! Recorded before FP 1 with just Don and Dave, this is how we started off... Well, not really, but nobody will ever hear #0! Enjoy! And thanks so much for your support since we began. Yo CRSJC!
Knowing that there would be some major Sideshow Collectibles 1/6 Joe reveals at SDCC this year, we booked our post-con talk with 1/6 production coordinator, Matt Bischof early -- right around the time of our last show with Jose and Matt on episode 23, actually... Sideshow Super-Collector Jose Gonzales helps Dave out on this one as we ask about Major Bludd (did Matt say further articuation?), Baroness, Snake Eyes and Timber, Crimson Guard, Falcon as well as the upcoming Destro. Dave can't refrain from asking about the possibility of Zartan getting a proper-sized ride. Hey, the Snowtrooper's getting his own e web cannon! Thanks, Matt and Jose for a great conversation. Joe SSC fans -- let them know you support this line! The ideas the team have are amazing. I truly hope to see them all become reality! Additional lnks to upcoming products will be posted here when they become available. Check out Micro #3 for our review of the Cobra Ninja Viper. Yo Sideshow!
Kirk Bozigian loves G.I. Joe. Every idea he has to help Joe thrive comes from a genuine love for the property. How did Joe become the immense success it was in the 80's? A large part of the credit goes to the very hard work and creative marketing ideas Kirk and the team implemented while at Hasbro. This all began in 1979! On FP 30, Kirk shares his ideas to bring Joe back to the aisles in full force! Does it involve breaking some eggs? Yes. We don't pretend that everything discussed here is the answer. But many great points are made and a love for the property is shared. Also discussed -- 90's live-action commercials, micro figs and more! If you want to hear more after this, make sure you check out episode 20 for Kirk's first appearance on the show. Thanks a million, Kirk! We always have an absolute blast when you're on! Talk to you after Retaliation! Yo Joe!
First things first. A huge Yo Joe! and thanks to Sideshow Collectibles for providing Flag Points with an awesome 1/6th scale figure to review. We appreciate it more than you know. This is exactly what you'd expect -- Dave doing his very best as a new Sideshow Joe collector to give the 2011 SDCC Exclusive Cobra Ninja Viper its due. Remember way back in '92 when you ordered your Storm Shadow repaint? Well, you can forget most of that -- minus the file card. This being our first official review, we need to figure the pic thing out better than this! For now, try these links... By the way... there's a difference between billowing and bellowing. Didn't mean to say the pants were yelling!
Just a quick Con update thanks to FP friend, Ken Rothermel! Rob and Dave grill Ken and you get to listen in! Don't forget to vote for your favorite Hasbro Concept Shelf figs here: http://generalsjoes.com/tell-hasbro-what-you-want-2012-gijoecon-concept-case-survey/ and soon -- the official one on Hasbro's site! They want to know what we think! Thanks a ton, Ken! Hope to talk to you again. LMK when you get your Sideshow Major Bludd. I know you will!
Knock-offs, Wannabes and Bootlegs. That's what CC Ryder, Airman John and Whispering Willie decided to talk about on Flag Points 29. Realizing that the world of KO's is huge, we thought we'd just talk about 80's Joe wannabes and save the 90's+ talk for another episode. We know we didn't even cover everything 80's this time around, but we plan to talk more about this strange offshoot of Joe on further episodes. There's tons to cover. From Bronze Bombers to American Defense and everything in between, we tried to give all the misfits of the military toy aisles their due. And as you'll hear, we has a great time doing it! (Don's still recovering.) Have fun and you may now start your expensive KO collection! YoKnock-Offs! Next episode: #30 with the return of Kirk Bozigian!!
