CobraIsland Plays … with Transformers!

12in Collectors … Brian Savage is your Only Hope.

The Joe Report published an article confirming what most in the Joe community already knew. Hasbro no longer has any real interest in 12 inch scale support, that has been left in the capable hands of CEO and EIC of Fun Publications Brian Savage.

What’s on Joe Mind? Episode 100!

The 100th episode of What’s on Joe Mind? is now online!

ZOMG!  It’s here…finally.  We recorded this well before JoeCon, but it is a MONSTER episode.  We figured we should put out something worthy of 100, so here is our biggest show ever!  It’s all about you the listeners and us thumping our chest a little bit.  Afterall, 100 shows is no small feat.  It takes a lot of work and time, so we figured we would enjoy ourselves on this one, share some memories and look back at what make the previous 99 so special.  Along the way we are joined by Bill Murphy from Fresh Monkey Fiction and Craig from Zica Toys to talk to us about their Captain Action and Eagle Force revival campaigns who talk to us about their upcoming Kickstarter slated for later this summer.  They share with us a big announcement that you will want to hear!  We are also joined by Cobra Commander…yes, the genuine article joins us to read your letters in the mailbag.  It’s all the pre-JoeCon news, your calls and our memories.  Thanks for listening and being part of this awesome ride!  We hope you enjoy this epic #100.
