Our Friends at Patches of Pride who publish The Joe Report recently got a chance to have a One on One sit down with Hasbro Global Marketing VP Derryl Depreist!!

The Joe Report which is dedicated to the fandom and support for the rich history of G.I.Joe 12in and it’s classic heritage not only addressed that but also was able to give us a great glimpse into the man himself and what motivates Derryl Depreist to make G.I.Joe all that he can even if the future of 12in scale doesn’t rest with Hasbro!

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.
