The 47th special edition of What’s on Joe Mind is online!
Whoa! What happened to Special Edition #46?! Well, we’re still working on it. In the meantime, we moved on to #47 to react to the GIJCC’s JoeCon site announcement. This year we are finally headed back west as a tiny burg named Loveland will enter our lexicon next to such cities as San Francisco, Dallas, New Orleans…and yes, Indianapolis. What is there to see and do in the area? As always our intrepid crew tracks down a local to fill us in with the info that only locals know. So sit back, relax and listen to the gang re-assembling to talk about JoeCon 2015 – in Loveland, Colorado…and as always, sharing dirty stories about one Noted Author. You don’t want to miss it!!

Episode 3 of the Full Force Series 2 podcast is now online!
With Roll Out Roll Call just around the corner, the boys discuss the finer points of the show in what is definitely one of the sexist episodes we’ve ever produced….not the sexiest!! It what should be some very simple news segments, Dave, Eddie and Chris get deep and meaningful in discussions that will amaze and shock….not really….just bigging it up!! We look at Raginspoon’s upcoming exclusives for the con and delve into the same characters from those exclusives in the figure review and from the vault. We top it off with the most ridiculous ‘what we got in’ section as Chris barrel-rolls into, what can only be described as, a plastic crack addiction!! So, join the boys with the toys as they put up ‘no girls allowed’ signs for the latest episode of the…….FULL FORCE!!!
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Stanley Weston, who claims to have created G.I. Joe, is suing Hasbro over the rights to the figure!
