#AFiScoopWeek 11th Anniversary Celebration Day 4 – @FreshMonkeyFic EAGLE FORCE Figure Reveal
April 21, 2016

Welcome back to day 4 of Scoop Week.  We’ve got two great reveals today.  First up we have a reveal from our friends at Fresh Monkey Fiction who later this summer will launch a Kickstarter campaign to revamp and relaunch the vintage EAGLE FORCE action figure line.

They are building the buzz right now with a Kickstarter campaign that is running right now (and for the next 2 weeks) for a series of Eagle Force Trading Cards so fans can get more familiar with the roots of Eagle Force now.

Fresh Monkey Fiction has already revealed several of the characters planned for the line.   Here are images of who we know are planned so far:



Today we get to reveal the next proposed figure in the line up the Hornet, R.I.O.T. Assassin, along with his Bio Card.
The The Hornet, R.I.O.T. Assassin will be offered, along with the other characters above when when the EAGLE FORCE Kickstarter launches later this summer. Fresh Monkey will be revealing more characters as they get closer to the launch of the actual Kickstarter campaign.
Thanks to Fresh Monkey Fiction for the reveal and joining us as part of Scoop Week!


Daniel Pickett
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.
