Danny Neumann Launches “The Quiet Life of G. Rider”
July 4, 2017

AFi Alum Danny Neumann has launched his new action figure photo series today The Quiet Life of G. Rider.  This new project will not be quiet as ambitious as his previous 365 day photo project “The Super Neumanns”, coming in at 25 days/photos, but each image will be JUST as packed with love, Easter Eggs and attention to detail.

The Quite Life of G. Rider will once again use custom action figures based primarily on Hasbro’s vintage G.I. Joe RAH figures.

The premise of this new photo series is simple:  What happens to the Spirit of Vengeance when it’s time to retire?  You can bet Danny will come up with some hilarious and unexpected answers to that question.

You can check out the day one image below and then make sure to check out the Facebook page each day to see how the story progresses.

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
