April 5, 2010

Our friends over at G4’s Attack of the Show (Remember when AFi was featured?) have sent us the following announcement of EPICNESS:

TONIGHT G4 launches a programming “attack” on the entire month of April, super-sizing each episode of “Attack of the Show!” with sexy reveals, special guests, costumes, daily giveaways of the hottest tech gadgets, and bigger than life stunts that we hope don’t completely obliterate our studio.

April is “Attack of the Show’s!” biggest month of the year, and the team has decided to honor it by blowing out each evening’s LIVE show.
There will be robots, there will be comedy by big time TV stars, there will be travel to foreign lands, there will be something  very special from Star Wars, there will be sexy magazine cover reveals, there will be free stuff every day!, (iPAD anyone?), there will be Action Figure Exclusives, Gaming PC’s, and stuff will get blown up!!




TUNE IN TONIGHT at 7pm ET/PT and every night this month for all the EPICNESS, and your chance to win big, only on G4.

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.
