Los Angeles, CA (March 20, 2015)  – Amazing Heroes, the retro 4.5” action figure line by Fresh Monkey Fiction, debuts at WonderCon 2016 from March 25th to 27th in Los Angeles. The Wave 1 lineup includes licensed characters Madman (by Michael Allred) and the classic Captain Action- both in this scale for the first time. Other Wave 1 figures include vintage heroes Black Terror, the Golden Age Daredevil, Stardust, and Green Turtle. Each figure features optional backer cards with Golden Age comic book art, or new card art from some of the comic book industry’s top talent–such as Erik Larsen, Phil Hester, Reilly Brown, Michael Allred, and Sonny Liew.

About Zica Toys

ZICA Toys is a company with two goals in mind: to make high quality, retro style toys and action figures… and to have a lot of fun in the process. Craig Owen, the owner of ZICA Toys, grew up during the 70’s spending countless hours playing with some of the best toys of that era. Trying to recapture the fun and excitement from those days is the primary reason why ZICA Toys was created. Visit www.facebook.com/zicatoys for more info.

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.
