AFi 7th Anniversary ‘Scoop Week’ Day 2 – BBP’s Six Million Dollar Man
April 24, 2012


Today’s scoop comes to us via our good friends at Bif Bang Pow!  The news isn’t that there will be an 8-inch retro Six Million Dollar Man line.  That was announced just before Toy Fair.  We’ve even seen a prototype of the Sasquatch figure, and we’ve seen a mock up of the Steven Austin figure with the outfit and a cardboard cut out for a head.

Today’s scoop is the world exclusive first-look at Bif Bang Pow’s upcoming Steve Austin/Lee Majors head sculpt for their 8-inch EMCE line!  Now, if I were a little more on-top of things I would have started off with this scoop and posted it yesterday, since yesterday was Lee Majors’ 73rd birthday.  So it’s a day late, but it’s a great gift for the fans that have litterally been BEGGING BBP to show this amazing likeness sculpt.

This figure should be available mid-summer.

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.
