Passion for GI Joe

I love listening to these guys talk about GI Joe. They are extremely passionate about GI Joe and they still enjoy not only collecting Joes, but actually playing with them. Do yourself a favor and subscribe and watch them on YouTube.

Oh My Word!

Rob’s wry sense of humor, Steven’s vocabularic diction, and Paul’s unbridled enthusiasm form the recipe for the net’s most delicious G.I.*JOE podcast. Serve with a cryptic side of Cujo 33 & enjoy!

Gave Me Back A Love I Thought I'd Lost

I've only recently started collecting joes again having discovered that the bulk of my childhood collection had been lost. All that remains are incomplete vehicles, playsets, and a random figure or two. Sad reminders more than anything else...until now.

As much as the new comics from IDW and the modern sculpt releases, Steve, Paul, and Rob have truly helped rekindle and deepen my love for these toys, the characters they represent, and the stories both in comic and cartoon, and most importantly, in my own backyard. And it's here that these South African lads really shine.

There's huge heaps of nostalgia, sure, but there's a here-and-now unapologetic passion for these timeless toys not only from a collector's standpoint, but an actual shameless, joyful, let's-get-out and play with these things. Blacktop, desktop, wherever. Then let's debate their real world existence/application merits and flaws. Interesting joe vs cobra matchups, definitive sculpts, play pattern analysis, toy industry speculation, cartoon and comic discussion, lucky finds from out in the wild, etc. all with insightful, thoughtful, playful commentary and banter.

You'll learn a lot, laugh a lot, and love your joes (vintage and modern) all the more for listening.

Thank you for the hard work, guys, and keep it up! Yo joe!

-Peter I.
