FANTASTIC EXCLUSIVE FINAL FACE-OFF GOING ON NOW!
March 31, 2009

The final battle for action figure supremacy is going on right now at FANtastic Exclusive and the final two combatants are already leaving their marks on one another!

 After one week of voting and more than 1,000 votes, the Four Horsemen are reporting that the ravenous Raven has put down the war-hardened Wolfbat by less than fifty votes!

  Even more amazing, and proving that every vote does indeed count, the malicious Ministry of Hunters have pounded a stake in the heart of the voluptuous Vampire Lady, taking the win by only five votes!

  The Four Horsemen had this to say, “In all of the years of the FANtastic Exclusive project, there has never been a vote in any category that ended so closely. We considered letting this voting bracket continue for a few more days to see if either contestant was going to be able to pull farther ahead, but we’d made a statement that the Semi-Finals bracket was only going to last one week, and we wanted to keep things on schedule as announced.”

  So, for fans of both the Wolfbat and the Vampire Lady, don’t despair. The popularity of both of those characters has ensured that they’ll be back.

  This week the Raven will take on the Ministry of Hunters in the Championship Bracket. Will the Raven win the battle and peck at the entrails of the Ministry of Hunters? Will the Ministry of Hunters make short work of the Raven and use his feathers to make a celebratory head-dress?

  It’s up to you to decide who’s going to take the top spot in the Championship Bracket!

 

  The current plan is to have the Championship Bracket last a week – ending next Monday, just as the previous two Brackets have, but after seeing how close the Semi-Finals bracket was, depending on how close the Championship Bracket voting is by next Monday, it may run longer  so we can determine a clear cut Champion.

  FANtastic Exclusive. War is hell. In this case, it’s literal.

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.
