Round four voting of the Four Horsemen’s FANtastic Exclusive 2007 is now up and running and articulation is the name of the game. The wait has been a little longer this time around due to an experimental preliminary discussion and vote conducted on the message boards. If you missed the discussion don’t worry, though, this is your chance to get into mix. The premilary discussion helped in setting up the vote, as well as to give the Horsemen a more detailed idea of where the fans’ head were at on articulation issues.  

Now it is everyone’s turn to get involved in the official decision making. Just like last year’s Xetheus: Champion of Mynothecea, action figure fans will be able to vote on every single point of articulation on the Seventh Kingdom’s Elephant Swordsman. Choices will range from the standards such as elbows and knees to some more unusual choices such as tail and trunk!  
Just head on over to and check out what people have been saying and then cast your vote on whether or not you want that tail to be articulated or not! 
 Fantastic Exclusive 2007′ a whole lotta’ ‘ticulation goin’ on!

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 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,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
