Amazing Heroes Action Figures adds Amazing Man in its final week on Kickstarter.
August 18, 2014

Fresh Monkey Fiction partners with Gallant Comics to add Amazing Man to its line of 4.5″ retro inspired action figures.

With only a week left to reach it’s funding goal, Gallant Comics has jumped head first into the Amazing Heroes Kickstarter in order to produce a limited amount of Amazing Man action figures based on their comic book John Aman: Amazing Man. Fans of the Amazing Heroes Kickstarter will be able to order their own Amazing Man figure directly from Gallant Comics in June 2015.


Amazing Man joins the line up of The Black Terror, Captain Action, Stardust the Super Wizard, The original Dare-Devil, The Green Turtle and The Blank Slate. You can read the further adventures of Gallant Comic’s John Aman: Amazing Man at


Fresh Monkey Fiction has also announced that a limited amount of The Green Turtle action figures are now available for $25.00 through the Kickstarter campaign. The Green Turtle is featured in the acclaimed graphic novel “The Shadow Hero” by Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese) and Sonny Liew (My Faith in Frankie). Originally offered exclusively as part of a 6 figure set, Fresh Monkey Fiction has set aside 100 units of this limited edition figure so you can now order him individually.


There are only 7 days left to raise the remaining $9,000 for these figures to be produced. In order for Amazing Man, Green Turtle and the rest of the Amazing Heroes to be manufactured the Kickstarter will need to reach it’s full funding goal of $30,000 by August 25th.

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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, 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.

    these will be a hard sell given how old the characters are. plus the kickstarter may need a last minute push for these to be reality
