1966 Batman & TMNT Fun From Funko!
April 16, 2013

We got another big batch of fun and information today from our friends at Funko:


1966 Batman Wacky Wobblers
Based on the 1966 Batman television show starring Adam West…
Funko is absolutely proud to bring you the most classic Batman of them all!
…along with his sidekick and all of those evil VILLAINS as well!
Please note: Although Catwoman is not pictured, she will also be included in this line.
She’s the cats me-ow.



Pop! Television: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a SERIOUS TMNT fan!

I rock my Donatello hoodie weekly, and I love it.

…I may or may not be wearing it right now. (may)
I’ve been ‘not so patiently’ waiting for this line and these images…
And the day has finally come!
They are so stinkin’ cute, I can’t hardly stand it!
…and now I want some pizza.

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 www.ActionFigureInsider.com. 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 MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, 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.
