All aboard the Yellow Submarine with Apple Corps and TITANS vinyl collectibles!
May 8, 2014




Titan Entertainment is delighted to announce a deal with Apple Corps Ltd to produce an ongoing range of Titan Merchandise’s award-winning TITANS vinyl collectibles based upon The Beatles’ ultra-psychedelic cartoon classic, Yellow Submarine. The deal was brokered by Bravado International, The Beatles North American licensing agent.


The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine TITANS launch in Q4 2104 throughout the UK, USA, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand with an inaugural wave of blind-boxed 3” vinyl collectibles, taking fans on a rollicking voyage to Pepperland with the cast of Yellow Submarine, TITANS-style!


Featuring the Fab Four (in all their animated glory), their Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band alter egos, the music-hating Chief Blue Meanie and the super-iconic Yellow Submarine itself – the initial twelve-character set even includes Old Fred and Jeremy Hillary Boob PhD!


Each figure is 3” blind-boxed and each retail set of twenty Yellow Submarine TITANS comes with two hidden chase figures for Beatles fans to hunt and collect!


More waves will follow in 2015, including a 6.5” set of animated Fab Four TITANS and an 8” window-boxed TITAN of the Yellow Submarine itself.


Andrew Sumner, director of Titan Merchandise, said: “As a kid growing up in the Liverpool suburbs, The Beatles were my absolute heroes – and they still are. Their contribution to global culture is unparalleled. I’ll never forget the first time I watched Yellow Submarine – it blew my mind. And forty-six years later, it still blows my mind! It’s my pleasure and privilege to rock back to Pepperland with our unique Yellow Submarine TITANS collectibles. I couldn’t feel more proud – and flat-out excited – to be launching this range.”

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.
