NORTHAMPTON, MA, OCTOBER 31, 2017 – One of the creators of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is going to make one TMNT fan very happy this year.  In an effort to thank his many fans for years of loyalty, Fan Club Membership and the recent success of his collectible toyline, Co-Creator Kevin Eastman is launching The Ultimate TMNT Giveaway.
The Giveaway includes the Sewer Playset, Technodrome, Party Van, Blimp base, Cheapskate, Turtle Trooper and Knucklehead (1988-1990 original toys) all signed with a headsketch along with a complete set of “soft head” signed 1988 action figures: Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, Michaelangelo, Splinter, Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady and a Foot Soldier.  A 1988 April O’Neil and 1989 Casey Jones complete the set.
“Soft heads” are so named from the very first production run of TMNT action figures in 1988 when the heads of each figure was hollow.  The decision was made after that to use a harder solid head for durability.
“You can tell a real collector,” said Eastman, “they see an ’88 toy and they pick it up and squeeze the head.  No need to squeeze here”, he added, “These are the real thing and everything will be given to one lucky fan!”

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
