Pop! TV: American Horror Story: Hotel

Return to Hotel Cortez with our American Horror Story: Hotel Pop! figures!

Hotel founder, Mr. March, and Sally the junkie are waiting with open arms!

Watch out for our Holden, though! He gets thirsty sometimes…

Coming in March!


 

Vinyl Idolz: American Psycho

Patrick Bateman has all the characteristics of a human being:blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear identifiable emotion, except for greed and lust.

Though he can hide his cold gaze, and you can shake his hand and feel flesh gripping yours, he’s simply not there. Say, do you like Phil Collins?

Coming in April!


 

Vinyl Idolz: Breaking Bad

Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see?

No, you clearly don’t know who you’re talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger. I AM the danger.

I am the one who knocks!

Coming in April!

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.
