Your host Dave teams up with Dragon Con luminary Kristian Allen and Noel Wood from The Finest to look back at the formative years of Hasbro’s GI Joe: A Real American Hero toy line!

1986 was a huge year for the A Real American Hero line of GI Joes. So big, in fact, that it took the guys a full episode to give it the attention it deserves! From heavy hitters like the COBRA Viper and the Battle Android Trooper to experiments in neon like Sci-Fi, ’86 gave us a lot to love.

Plus, this week brings a HUGE announcement about a future Needless Things project!

Listen in as Dave, Noel, and Kristian dive deep into the Joes and COBRAs of 1986 on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

The Skywalker saga may be over, but there are enough books to keep Star Wars fans satisfied for years to come. Chad, Ryan, and Beth have started a series to keep you up to date on all the action. Join our book club as we run down the best that canon, legends, and comics have to offer.

Star Wars movies love to just jump right into the thick of things, often without telling us how we got from point A to point B. That’s where novels come in handy. Today we’re taking a look at the novel that bridges the gap between The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker. If you feel like Wedge was robbed by only getting two seconds of screen time in The Rise of Skywalker then this might be the perfect book for you.
