In Mike Tyson Mysteries, Mike Tyson is taking the fight from the boxing ring to the streets … by solving mysteries!  Aided by the Mike Tyson Mystery Team – the Ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry, along with Mike’s adopted Korean daughter and a pigeon who was once a man – Mike Tyson will answer any plea sent to him.  If you have a problem that needs solving, Iron Mike is in your corner.  The series incorporates live-action appearances featuring Mighty Mike himself, and the gloves come off as the former heavyweight champ and his team gear up for weekly adventures as they put unsolved mysteries down for the count. The series stars Mike Tyson, Norm Macdonald (Saturday Night Live), Rachel Ramras (MAD) and Jim Rash (The Way Way Back, Community).

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, 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.

    How about putting some famous rock stars like the Beatles beach boys maybe the monkees would be cool what do you think. Alan

    Oh, cool, the Gentleman Ghost is apparently a supporting cast member in the show! :P

    “In Mike Tyson Mysteries, convicted rapist Mike Tyson is taking the fight from the boxing ring to the streets … by solving mysteries!”

    Fixed that accidental omission.

    Can’t wait to own a figure of a ‘man’ who served three years in prison for raping an 18 year-old girl! Sure, he was sentenced to 6 years, but he had to get back on the street to help the public forget with a cameo in The Hangover and his own cartoon series. Thanks, Warner Bros and Bif Bang Pow, couldn’t have done it without you!!!

      Not to mention biting a man’s ear off . Threatening to eat an opponent’s children. I know this is Adult swim. But come on! Disgusting ! WB and BBP should be ashamed!
