AFi 5th Anniversary Scoop Week Reveal #2 – The Color Mystic Seer
April 14, 2010


We have another great 5th Anniversary reveal today, again from out good friends at BifBangPow!  And the coolest thing about this one is that is ties back into our 4th Anniversary!    You will recall, last year as part of Scoop Week we were allowed to reveal the very first product in BifBangPow’s newly announced Twilight Zone line- the black and white "Mystic Seer." And in an almost mirror image, this year, on day two of our reveals we bring you the next incarnation of the Mystic Seer, from the Twilight Zone classic second season episode "Nick of Time" starring William Shatner  – this time in FULL COLOR! 

That’s right, for all you kids out there that can’t take the classic elegance of black and white, BBP has heard your cries and repainted the Mystic Seer bobble head in color!   It still has all of the cool elements of the original such as the jewel in the eye, but now you get all the creepy mystery in living color.



This bobble head will be one of BifBangPow’s 2010 San Diego Comic Con exclusive.   It is a limited edition product and will be available to pre-order tomorrow at

BifBangPow! still has MORE SDCC exclusives to announce and we’ll bring you that news here as soon as it’s available!  

I’d like to say a huge "Thank you!!" to Jason Lenzi and Jason Labowitz from BifBangPow for letting us reveal the LOST Claire and color Mystic Seer SDCC exclusives here on AFi!

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,,, 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.
