Join Sam (Sears) and Aaron as they chat with Sam Wells. Sam lived a dream. In this interview we discuss his internship at Devils Due Publishing and how this G.I.Joe fan ended up writing a Special Missions Brazil story inspired by the original figures. We also discuss his other work within the company including touching on his work with the filecards and the DDP era of G.I.Joe in general
If you active in the G.I.Joe Group Discussion, or the community, you may know Sam Wells as Queelock, or as Toy De Jour. He also recently made some news by sharing some concept art (shown below)
It’s a short one, but a good one, and hope to have Sam back soon (to talk about the concept art and more) you can listen to the episode embedded below or use the drop down menu above to navigate to Itunes on Stitcher to subscribe for easy mobile listening.
Sam Wells is currently running a toy store in Chicago called Toy De Jour, give him a like on facebook, or visit his store’s site to see what he is up to.
None of the four shown above were released. These appear to be from the JVC/Spytroops/VVV era. Son of Kwinn would eventually become Ghost Bear in VVV and look completely different. Serpentor’s design shares the design of the Spytroops Shipwreck disguise, and in the lower right you can see DTC Scrap Iron and the disguise gear for Burnout, the new Dreadnok from that era.
Personally I love this look for all 4 shown.
and look forward to having Sam back to explain them. -Sam (Sears)
(Note this post was updated with the current audio host’s listing. Aaron left, and he and I have no affiliation with each other any longer, and we have rebranded as Nerdrahtio but have mutual use of our past podcast work together.)
