Sam (rev) Sears (myself) hosts this interview with Dan Klingensmith author of the upcoming book 3.75 ” Joe that delves into the origins of the 80’s and early 90’s big toyline, from it’s origins, designs, the creators stories, to unused concepts. Sam is joined by hosts Alex “Jaxs”, new comer Nate Blaine, and we were blessed to have What’s on Joe Mind Host Gary Godsoe as a host this episode as well.

We discuss Dan’s interest in the brand and segway to his book. We discuss the Flagg’s Origins, an alternate take on the B.A.T. (Battle Android Trooper) as well as an interesting early spin on Major Bludd and more. We then discuss the current state of the G.I.Joe brand and our hopes for the future.
This episode was plagued with issues. It was recorded prior to the Buzz Dixon interview but the data, after editing, become corrupted and i had to re edit the podcast, and even during the podcast, Nate Blaine lost service, my computer over heated which caused some confusion. We will try have Dan on again the in the future to make up for it but Gary and Alex really kept things going and I really thank them for it!
If you want to hear more from Dan @ his facebook page for his book and this group for his podcast covering behind the scenes of the toyline with the creators themselves. His old page also has a great set of pics as well
