What’s on Joe Mind Episode 45 featuring GI Joe: Initiate and Buzz Dixon is online!

Yes, it went up a little late, but those cross-Atlantic plane trips will do that to ya!  Recently returned from a whirlwind voyage to Southampton for Roll Out Roll Call 3, Gary has posted Episode 45 of What’s on Joe Mind for your Thursday morning listening enjoyment!  In this episode we interview Frederic Doss, the only man known to have been killed by both Cobra and the Decepticons on the big screen (yes, he was victimized in both G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and the first Michael Bay Transformers film), and a key mastermind behind the development of upcoming fanfilm, G.I. Joe: Initiate.

We’re also joined by a very special guest, Will Bell, recently returned from Afghanistan, who spends some time with us, just shooting the breeze about G.I. Joe.  As if that wasn’t enough, an informative interview with Buzz Dixon rounds out this action packed episode.

Show Notes

WOW! Episode 45 is here! Better late than never, right? So yeah, its a week late, but we gave ya over 3 hours of RORC3 coverage, so that made up for something didn’t it? Apologies in advance. With travel and all, it made it difficult getting this out in a timely manner. We’ll make it up to you, trust us! In this episode we are joined by TWO very special guests. First, just joining us as a guest host and hanging out is US Marine, fan of the show and a REAL American Hero, Will Bell (no relation to Justin). Siting in the interview chair this week is Frederic Doss to talk to us about his upcoming fanfilm GI Joe: Initiate and his roles in BOTH the live action Joe and Transformer films. From the mailbag, Chuck is asked about the obscure South African wrestler Col. DeBeers joining the ranks of Cobra, Gary is asked why he hates Transformers so much, and was there ever a time anyone on the cast has ever lost interest in Joe and *gasp* STOPPED collecting. In the news, Hasbro responds to the latest issues with Fun Pub and the guys celebrate the conclusion of a long running show joke. Also covered in the news is the lack of new Joe broadcasting on the hub and a mystery Joe wave was found in the WalMart computers that has the look of being cancelled. After the break you will hear a pre-recorded interview with Sunbow writer Buzz Dixon as we talk to him about the toon and find out some stuff about the most dangerous man in the world AND what would have happened to Cobra Commander in season 3 if the series didn’t get lost to DIC. We thank Will for joining us and wish him continued success in his rehab and thank him for her service to our country. If you agree, kindly drop a comment in on this episode to let Will know how much you appreciate him as well!!

Additional details about the leaked vehicle images from this morning

Early this morning I reported on the leaked vehicle images that had shown up, and I’ve spent the morning doing some research, and I’ve got a little elaboration on what these items may be.  Keep in mind, this is hypothetical on my part, but I’m feeling pretty good about what I’ve got here, notes-wise.

  • Desert Rockslide w/ Dusty (Alpha Vehicle)
  • COBRA Lava Pod w/ Volcano Viper (Alpha Vehicle)
  • Tiger  Claw w/ Leatherneck (Alpha Vehicle)
  • Polar Shark Sub w/ Ice Storm (Alpha Vehicle)
  • Snow Cat w/ Whiteout (Bravo Vehicle)
  • COBRA Fury w/ Alley-Viper (Bravo Vehicle)

This information was gleaned from retailer lists and some process of elimination.  We should find out at SDCC how accurate this little list is.  I’ve also got non-watermarked versions of the images hosted below!

New Wal-Mart listings revealed – MORE DETAILS!

Ah, the ever vigilant Joefan Wal-Mart employees have cracked the code again and provided a rundown of what appears to be a listing from Wal-Mart for upcoming product.  Note, NONE of this can be considered confirmed, as we all found out with Waves 14 and 15.  However, so far the accuracy rating for these lists has been pretty damn high.  I’m reluctant to say what I’m going to say, because it could “spoil” a lot of stuff, but it’s already out there, so we’ll go with it.

tkprime from and the SuperPoseable Blog are reporting that they have dug through the Wal-Mart computers and come up with a potential list for upcoming product:


Wal-Mart computer reveals upcoming G.I. Joe items

Ever since late last year, Wal-Mart computer listings have given us a great rundown of potential product that’s in the pipeline.  Most recently it’s led to heartbreak with the announcements that Waves 14 & 15 as well as the latest comic packs and  vehicles have all been pushed aside, but as it leads into movie stuff, I think we can start to at least somewhat depend on these listings to give us a foundation of what to expect.  Keep in mind, though, as always, these are unconfirmed reports and unconfirmed listings, so take them all with a mammoth sized grain of salt.

Well the “Super Poseable Blog” has reported that Wal-Mart computers have revealed the following information:
