Experience the Wonder is Open!
February 29, 2008

This news is a little late as it came in while I was prepping for Toy Fair, but it’s so cool I have to mention it.  AFI friend and board-member  Antony C has opened up what may just be the definitive Wonder Woman archive- ExperiencetheWonder.com.

It’s thorough, easy to read, and a great resource for all things Wonder Woman.   

Antony has included some helpful navigation tips for the site to start you off:

NAVIGATION :: I have placed every item in my collection within one of several menu categories that are tabs at the top of every page. Click any tab to view the "contact sheet" for that category.

CONTACT SHEETS:: Every item under a particular category will be displayed in a group of thumbnails, each showing the name of the item beneath. Click any thumbnail to visit each item’s own "detail" page. Contact sheets (and their sections) are arranged from oldest to newest, following a left-to-right, row-by-row format.

DETAIL PAGES:: The detail pages feature my own high-resolution photos including complete turnarounds, packaging and product specifications. Hover over any thumbnail to change the "preview" image to the left. Click on any thumb nail to open a pop-up window with the full-size image. For fun,try scrolling your mouse over the thumbnails from top to bottom and back! If you do, the preview image will "rotate" before your eyes!There is a text link above each preview image to get you back to the contact sheet for that category.

VALUES ::  Auction values are provided for informational purposes only. Items in my private collection are not for sale.

UPDATES:: As I acquire new pieces, they will be included in the appropriate section. New releases will be added within a week of their release.

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.
