Help Make Celebration V Workshop the BEST it can be
June 30, 2010

We received the following email plea into at AFi HQ last night so I thought we’d pass it along in case anyone wants to help out: 


 I wonder if you could help spread the word about the Celebration V Diorama Workshop Figure Fund.

Hasbro has donated 4 of the NEW AT-AT’s and the BMF Falcon and 6 new Snowspeeders, but we need Much MORE to populate the 30 foot x 60 foot Rebel Base Diorama we will be constructing for Celebration V.

If  fans can send us ANY unwanted loose Beasts, Ships, Droids or Figures that they can spare that would be AMAZING.  ALL figures donated go home with the KIDS on the Sunday, NOTHING comes back home with me for my own collection.

The Fund was a HUGE success for Celebration IV and I know with some word of mouth we can top those donations this year.

You can read more about the fund at the Official NiubNiub page here: http://www.niubniubsuniverse. com/C5W/CV_FigureFund/ CVFigureFund.asp

the address to ship figures to is our Orlando contact…

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,,, 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.
