Applehead Factory Announces their San Diego Comic Con Exclusive for 2010!
July 14, 2010

Applehead Factory are pleased to announce the details of their San Diego Comic Con exclusive Teddy Scares bear. This year, dressed in his gore-covered apron, Abnormal Cyrus makes his first appearance at Comic Con!

This item will be available at Applehead Factory’s Booth #4923. Cyrus is limited to only 150 pieces. Each one of these bears needs a loving home!

Though he always starts with the best of intentions, mayhem usually follows when Abnormal Cyrus sets his mind to something. At the heart of this walking and talking irritation is a lonely teddy bear looking for a “bestest” friend. Unfortunately, when the other bears see him coming, they head for the trash hills!

Abnormal Cyrus comes dressed in his striped grey shirt, olive green corduroy pants, and stain-covered apron emblazoned with the San Diego Comic Con logo. As a special bonus package, each Cyrus doll comes with a Monster Mouth Rita Mortis plush keychain and a numbered eye 1” pin. Cyrus is priced at only $20.00.

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.
