March 21, 2008

NY- Comic-Con returns to New York April18-20th and once gain Mezco will be thrilling collectors with an offering of collectibles exclusive to the event.

Sure to excite East Coast collectors, Mezco will be offering notorious B.I.G. aka Christopher G. Wallace.  He’s an all-time great; an unparalleled storyteller, and a man whose talent can only be compared to the size of his legend.  The Notorious B.I.G. action figure stands 9" tall and will captivate Biggie fans of all shapes and sizes.  This exclusive version of Biggie is decked out in the outfit he rocked in his Juicy video, an authentically reproduced yellow basketball jersey.Includes removable towel, gold chain, sunglasses, and microphone.  This is a limited edition figure with only 2000 produced worldwide.  

Fresh from scenic Camp Crystal Lake, the twisted minds of Mezco have outdone themselves with this new Stylized Jason figure variant. Like the regular edition, this 10 inch tall terror has a removable trademark hockey mask, a gruesome severed head, three camper killing weapons(machete, ax, spear), real cloth clothing, and fourteen points of articulation. What makes this variant unique is his “fresh from the grave” moldering skin tone, his dark brown pants, and his uniquely battle damaged   mask from “Freddy VS Jason”.

Both figures will be Available  at NY Comic Con (4/18-20, 2008) and at MezcoDirect.com, while supplies last.

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.
