Some folks may consider this a spoiler, so I will preface this by saying continue reading if you want. I don’t think it’s a significant spoiler, but it concerns the character of Firefly in the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film. A recent issue of Total Film magazine featured an article on G.I. Joe: Retaliation. They spoke with Jon Chu, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Ray Stevenson. Comic Book Movie was kind enough to get this information out there and posted on their site.

This may very well be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any Sigma 6 collectors out there. As Sigma 6 aficionados know, the Adventure Team series of figures was canceled after the first wave, but some very low quantities of the Dusty pre-production sample have been found in the wild. By “very low”, I mean three. Out of those three, one of them has been listed on eBay.
Check out the auction right here. This is a great, very rare and limited pre-production item. Check it out.
This is not my auction, by the way, just bringing some attention to a great Sigma 6 historical item that might appeal to some folks out there.
So did you think 2012 was a slow year for G.I. Joe? While the fine folks behind the What’s on Joe Mind Podcast did drop down their recording schedule a bit to accommodate a slow trickle of Joe news, there were still many exciting G.I. Joe events to talk about.
From animated voice actors to movie news and toy reports, What’s on Joe Mind covered the gamut of G.I. Joe news and events for the year.
Even with a much slower recording schedule in the back half of 2012, it was tough to pick out 12 isolated episodes, but with Gary and Mike’s help, somehow I made due.

Coil Con is over and Gary has some editing time again, so here is episode 66 of What’s on Joe Mind, the foremost G.I. Joe podcast on the ‘net! The guys give a little run down of what’s been going on in our pesky “real lives” to delay episode releases, and we also have the immense pleasure to speak with Hasbro designers Andrew and Trina about the work they’ve done for Hasbro in general and on the G.I. Joe brand specifically. Some awesome insight about the modern Joes design philosophy and the infamous Dollar Store figures! Hit up our Podbean page or check out the Embedded players below. Show notes as always are after the jump.
Whether or not you’ve supported The Hero Project on Kickstarter, it’s pretty inarguable that their interaction with the public has provided some terrific enlightenment into the world of toy design and production. They came on What’s on Joe Mind and spoke about it, and have also provided numerous updates via their Kickstarter page and through emails.
The latest update is no exception, which has also been mirrored to their Tumblr where they talk about the thought processes and work gone into conceptualizing, designing, and hopefully manufacturing Rama, their first offering in the Hero Project.
Definitely check it out right here, you won’t regret it.
Wow, I think it’s safe to say this episode was packed. We had a bunch of stuff to talk about, so we brought on The Mike from the Canadian JoeCon, the guys from the JoBurg Podcast, but we also really wanted to pay some close attention to the guys from Go Go Dynamo, who are behind The Hero Project and also were the lifeblood behind a little 8″ toy line you might have heard of… Sigma 6.
As many episodes of these podcasts that I’ve done, it surprises me that we can continue to talk to folks who I consider personal heroes. Wayne and Tuck from Go Go Dynamo are absolute revolutionaries in design and art, and I considered it a true privilege to talk to them for an hour or so. Cast whatever stones towards Sigma 6 that you might want to, but listening to their absolutely brilliant insight behind toy design, the G.I. Joe universe in 2005 and how that whole thing translates to The Hero Project was one of the most interesting and captivating 60 minutes I’ve ever spent on the show. Truly awesome stuff.
Please consider supporting The Hero Project on Kickstarter, and once you’re done, come on back and hit up our Podbean Page to listen to the latest episode, especially because we also talk a ton about the awesome Canadian JoeCon and keep the JoBurg guys up way past their bed time. Things get pretty wacky!
