DKE Toys Press Release: Scott C’s Great Showdowns v2
November 21, 2017
Back by popular demand! Scott C’s Great Showdowns v2
 
After a lightning fast sell out at this years San Diego Comic Con, Scott C.’s eager fans will have another chance at version 2. This revised version will have a neon green ghost and a more accurate color scheme for our favorite ghost chaser’s outfit.
The Great Showdowns is the smash hit online series that we have seen in art shows and books depicting classic moments of great tension between characters in some of the greatest films of all time. This the very first figure ever to be created of Scott C’s work and the first in a series of Great Showdowns themed toys. This figure was sculpted by George Gaspar of Double G toys who helped bring Scott C’s characters to life.

Each two figure set is 3 3/4” scale and will come on a signed card back. All figures are hand cast and hand painted. $120 each. Limit two per household.

Ordering will be open for 14 days in TheScottCShop.com or while supplies last. Expect delivery around February 2018.

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.
