Hey hey,

Allow me to introduce you to Half the Battle, my video review show where I take a look at all things related to GIJoe : A Real American Hero from the 80s and beyond. You'll find reviews of the toys, characters, cartoons and comics. My hope is to inform and entertain ! So have a look, and see if I've suceeded there. Fair warning, the first episodes are a bit rough, but I'm quite pleased with the later ones.

You can find my show here :
Half The Battle

A new episode is normally posted every Tuesday !

Hope you enjoy !

Things get Lovecraftian this week with the Halloween special, but can GIJoe pull off horror and suspense ?

In today's episode, we get our first look at the Mega Marines with Blast-Off. A guy who is not what he seems. You could say there's more than meets the eye here.

Thanks ! I think. : )


In the first episode of 2014, we take a look at yet another member of Battle Force 2000. He doesn't seem like a jerk, so I'm assuming he's a psychopath.

We're looking at issue 14 of the comic. We've got schemes, we've got double-and triplecrossings ! We've got a hell of a lot crammed into one issue. Also, civilians in the GIJoe universe are hella stupid.

Time to take another look at the cartoon ! We prove that convoluted plans aren't limited to the comic, and we're reminded that this really was an 80s cartoon in the worst way.

It's Super Bowl Sunday ! That means it's a brand new Football Special from Half the Battle ! Hey, you can either watch this or Bruno Mars. I think we all know what most people on earth will choose to watch !

No problem ! You know, I try to get the word out, but there's only so many boards, facebook groups etc. I can post on. Still, if I can just reach one guy on a board, and entertain them, I consider it a win. : )

Today, we're taking a look at one of the 13 original members of the GIJoe team ! We're also taking a look at one of the worst GIJoe toys ever made.

Hmm. I might have to check that out.

New episode ! Captain America sure is a great character. Too bad Hasbro didn't have the rights to make a toy of him in the 80s. They sure got around that problem though !

New episode! When GI Joe decided to take part in the war on drugs, they needed a leader. And goofy weapons. And Cobra to help out. Then they gave up.

I've had an extremely busy week, so there really wasn't time to script and produce a review. However, that doesn't mean there isn't a new video ! I present to you : My own toy collection.

We're going back to the comic, and learn the fate of some important characters. We also learn that Belgium has a superior military when compared to the American one in the comic, so there.

In this cartoon review, we've replaced Cobra Commander with the Joker. Let's see if anybody noticed ! Also, Cobra goes nuclear.

That line was ironic in many ways ! : )

On this week's episode, the Joes take on a new, deadly foe. And when I say "deadly", I mean stupid, very very stupid.

You have no idea how much I had to resist ripping off a Nostalgia Critic joke for that one. ("Boomer will live!")

New episode : And one time, Rocky Balboa was gonna join the GIJoe team...
