April 23, 2014

Figures Toy Company announced today a BIG one-two PUNCH!  And I mean that LITTERALLY as they are bringing back the old “fist fighting” action feature from the Mego days and applying it to their retro 8″ figures.

To top that off the new FF Figures will be themed to tie into the 30th Anniversary of Kenner’s Super Powers line, so it’s a nostalgia EXPLOSION!

The sneak peek they offered today show a sampling of characters from their first and second series and include: Batman, Robin, The Joker, Superman, The Riddler, Shazam, Aquaman and Green Arrow.

Here is a sneak peek of our upcoming Super Powers (With fist fighting action) line series 1 & 2…What do you think?

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.

    While Green Arrow was my absolute favorite Mego figure as a kid I don’t see how the whole Fist-Fighting thing is going to work with him considering that his quiver will completely cover the switch and if the quiver/belt/shoulder loops are a fragile as the original that piece will break the second anyone tries to use the action feature.

    I’d really like some of these figures, but I typically HATE action features. I’ll need more information to make a decision. It’s okay if they don’t detract from the figure’s range of motion (I was fine with Super Powers, for example), but if it ‘locks’ them into place, I won’t buy.
