August 20, 2018

(BALTIMORE, MD) — (August 17, 2018) — Lord Drakkon is back, seeking power and might as a new PREVIEWS exclusive Funko POP! figure. No Ranger is safe from this detailed vinyl figure of the evil green Ranger, an alternate-reality version of Tommy Oliver.

Announced at Power Morphicon, the biennial Power Rangers-themed convention held this year in Anaheim, CA on August 17-19th, Diamond and Funko are partnering to bring fans this exclusive POP! Vinyl Figure limited to only 30,000 pieces worldwide. This collectible figure of the Power Rangers tyrant is scheduled to hit shelves in January 2019 with a retail price of $11.99.

“We’re excited about this Lord Drakkon Funko POP! and we think fans will be too because he’s such a captivating, yet twisted character. Right now, there isn’t much Lord Drakkon merchandise available and this will give fans a chance to get their hands on an exclusive collectible associated with the Power Rangers’ Shattered Grid storyline, one of the biggest comic book events of this summer,” said Erique Watson, Diamond PREVIEWS Brand Manager for Toys.

Fans can pre-order their own PREVIEWS exclusive Lord Drakkon Funko POP! Vinyl Figure now at their local comic book shop using item code JUN188596 to ensure they get this one-of-a-kind Funko figure. To find a comic shop near you, visit www.comicshoplocator.com.

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.
