JDSO Podcast Episode 9 – Insight and Intel from G.I. Joe designer Guy Cassady

The fantastic folks from have posted the latest and greatest episode of the Joe DeClassified Spec Ops (JDSO) Podcast, and in this episode they speak with the legendary Guy Cassady!

If you collected G.I. Joe vehicles in the mid 80s, chances are you owned some of Guy’s work.  The Conquest, Rolling Thunder, the Persuader, and the Desert Fox are just three of the items he worked on.  He brings an encyclopedic knowledge of automobile design and construction to the toys he built, and it shows!

Epic Photo Album published for Marauder “Task Force” combinations

So the Marauder “Task Force” Kickstarter is already funded, which means our jobs are done, right?


There are a ton of great stretch goals on the Kickstarter, and my personal favorite (Carmen) still has a ways to go before funding is reached.  Marauder has also been fielding a number of questions about the accessory pack outs and details about the figures, but unfortunately Kickstarter only allows so many images to be posted.

Because of this, Marauder has created a fantastically massive Facebook Photo Album to share nearly EIGHTY images of his Task Force soldiers.  All sorts of great combinations of figures, accessories, vests, weapons, helmets, etc…  are there for your consumption.

If you haven’t funded yet, these images might just change your mind!  Check them out at the Marauder “Gun Runners” Facebook Page, and I’ve mirrored just a few of them below.

Then, for crying out loud, if you haven’t done it yet, GO FUND THE KICKSTARTER!

Community’s G.I. Jeff – Was it worth the hype? A GeneralsJoes Review

Over the past several weeks we’ve been inundated with news and reports about the NBC sitcom Community doing a special “G.I. Jeff” animated episode in the spirit of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.

Well, I’d say anyone who saw the episode last night would take it one step further… it wasn’t just “in the spirit”, it was designed to essentially BE a G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero episode.  Obviously the folks at Community had to get permission from Hasbro to run with this to the degree that they did (check out a great IGN interview with Dan Harmon for some of those tidbits).
