Marvel Classic Character: Iron Man Gold Variant (Limited Edition of 200)

Marvel Classic Character: The Hulk Green Variant (Limited Edition of 200)

We’ve turned the original short-lived gray Hulk to his familiar green just for Comic-Con in this very limited-edition Syroco-style statuette. Hulk stands 4 3/4″ tall, and comes in a litho-printed tin box, with a pin-back button and a booklet.

2.5″ Good Luck Troll: Black-Light Green (Limited Edition of 1,500)

Trolls became one of America’s biggest toy fads in the early 1960s, and again over the years in various revivals from many toy manufacturers. They’ve been off the market for nearly a decade; now Dark Horse is bringing them back with a mystery-box program. However, our San Diego Comic-Con exclusive is no mystery. This green Good Luck Troll with white hair glows under black light and is limited to 1,500 pieces!

Make sure to stop by booth #2615 to check out all this awesome stuff, only available at San Diego Comic-Con 2012!

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.
