@Airmax Recruits Starscream into G.I.Joe
May 10, 2018

There’s not many of the original “old guard” of action figure customizers that are still in the game and producing new work, so it’s exciting news any time one pops up.   Our old friend Pierre aka Airmax has resurfaced and brought us another masterpiece.

For the past several years Airmax has been bringing us some killer hybrid figures based on the premise of what if the Transformers had been incorporated into Hasbro’s vintage 3.75″ G.I. Joe action figures line.  Starscream is the 8th release in the TF/GI Joe crossover series and is a limited edition of ten.

Airmax’s G1 Joe Starscream  includes a custom card with file card on the back.


– $120 shipped to anywhere in the US. Every order will be shipped by Tuesday next week at the latest


Check out Airmax’s official Facebook page for more information.

Big, HUGE thanks to my main man Mike over at 800lbs Productions for the Starscream illustration. Please do yourself a favor and check out his website and Instagram – subscribe, follow, like, all that good stuff:


And as always a huge thank you to Raginspoon for providing the fantastic casts that make these customs possible. Check his site out – check out all the amazing custom parts he’s making:

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.
