IMPORTANT:  Some of the images for this episode can be found at http://joedeclassified.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20t=665 and some of the images for this episode can be found here: http://cobra788.blogspot.com/  50 years ago, we recorded our first episode of JDSO in which we introduced you to the unproduced Cobra Island Playset.  And now, for our 9th episode, Joe Declassified teams up with Kevin Watts of  Cobra788.blogspot.com to bring you the man who designed that Cobra Island play set, the absolute mastermind behind some of the largest, most iconic GI JOE vehicles ever: the legendary, MR. GUY CASSADAY.   On this episode of Joe Declassified: SPEC-OPS, Guy Cassaday takes us through the pre-production origins, processes, and anecdotes behind his designs, including the fearless Conquest, the mammoth Mobile Command Center, the sneaky Coastal Defender, the epic Rolling Thunder, the intimidating General, and the unproduced, deadly Cobra Sub.  Yes.  You read that correctly.  COBRA.  SUB. But why stop there??  Guy also talks to us a bit about the Defiant and the Persuader. Also in the show notes we’ve got images of the unproduced ANVIL vehicle.  Yeah, we’ve never seen it before, either.  All this and more on this first of a TWO PART interview, with one of the most revered and celebrated GI JOE vehicle designers of all time. Welcome to the Hidden World of GI JOE.

Episode Info

 

We had some recurring and unforeseen sound/tech issues throughout, but otherwise this is an absolutely exciting interview and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we had recording it! We’d like to extend an enormous thank you to G. Wayne Miller for time travelling with us!! The images for this episode can be found here: http://joedeclassified.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20t=608start=0 For some of you, our guest needs no introduction. For the rest of you, author G. Wayne Miller was given full access (and then some) to Hasbro in the 90’s and some limited access to Mattel. His mission: to document and decipher the eras and empires of toy making and toy marketing. The result was a book called Toy Wars: The Epic Struggle Between G.I. Joe, Barbie, and the Companies That Make Them. On this episode of JDSO, Jaimanstone (who made this episode happen) and Gyre-Viper sit down with G. Wayne Miller, who revisits his time at Hasbro: the stories, the people, and the ideals. He even reads some excerpts from his book and then shows us the coolest damn shoes never made. He even goes so far as to share with us his insights into current day and future Hasbro as he sees it. This is the history of the future of GI JOE. Welcome to Joe Declassified: SPEC-OPS.

Episode Info

 

Joined by Joe Declassified phantom bigwig, Jason wells aka VIPER109... we take you on a multi-line, multi-era adventure, embarking not only through the deserted history of GI JOE, as Mr. Wells brings the depth on the unproduced, highly coveted Desert Headquarters figures... but we also journey through some mid-Mesozoic mysteries, unearthed by notpicard and Gyre-Viper, via some overseas paleontology. It doesn't stop there as we identify the many non-Joe lines that reuse GI JOE parts (and sometimes vice versa), while nova puts on a bunny suit and hands out easter eggs.  It's hidden world meets lost world, with over 80 images to accompany this episode.

Episode Info

 

The Joe Declassified: SPEC-OPS Team is joined by some very special guests... the mighty pluv of JoeCustoms.com and the one and only Leonardo T Dragon of JoeBattlelines.com// For this episode we take on a hefty helping of variations and errors from the revered vaults of Pat "notpicard" Stewart.  Pat takes us through his categorizing process of what falls into variant and what gets marked an error and how that all fits into his work on YoJoe.com and around the community.  We also give the yet to be released discount repaints a quick once over... sort of gathering our thoughts on what they are, what they mean, and what they might be telling us about the future of the brand.  And to top it all off... Pat speaks to the functionality of YoJoe.com's legendary archives... its achievements, criticisms, and everything in between. You can find the images referenced in the episode here: http://joedeclassified.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20t=579  The links to the right will take you to the Joe Declassified site and forum.
