Colin Baker – The sixth Doctor – joins Weta in London
May 20, 2008

Weta will have a Doctor on hand at our stand at the MCM Expo in London this weekend, 24-25 May.

Not just any doctor, of course, but the sixth incarnation of the Doctor, Colin Baker. This ties in with the first viewing and European launch of Weta’s range of Doctor Who collectibles. The full range will be displayed at the show and is likely to attract a lot of attention.

 As all fans will be aware, Colin Baker played the role of the Doctor from 1984-1986 and is fondly remembered by many. Colin had an interesting interpretation of the character, and fans were disappointed that it was never fully realized or explored before the show was put on hiatus.

 Colin will be joining us at the stand for the full two days, talking to fans, signing autographs and providing invaluable behind-the-scenes knowledge. Please come and see him at the stand.

 Also at the stand will be David Tremont, Weta model maker and one of the craftsmen responsible for the new pieces in the Weta range. See previous article.

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.
