Now Marty McFly can travel back in time!

The Time Machine Pop! Ride comes with a full size Marty McFly Pop!

ReAction: Back to the Future

He was never in time for his classes…
He wasn’t in time for his dinner…
Then one day…He wasn’t in his time at all.

Get retro with these Back to the Future ReAction Figures!
ReAction is a line of vintage 1970’s style minimally articulated action figures.

Your favorite Back to the Future characters look pretty radical in the ReAction style!

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

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.

    About time, literally. I’ve been waiting for Back to the Future action figures for what will soon be 29 years. It’s too bad that these aren’t exactly what I’ve been dreaming and hoping for, but it’s better than nothing. And what about the rest of the cast of characters: Lorraine, Einstein, Biff’s Gang: 3-D, Match and Skinhead. How about a Principal Strickland and Jennifer Parker? And where’s the DeLorean Time Machine – how could you not do that vehicle? And here’s really stretching it, why not a Clocktower playset? And let’s not forget the two sequels and the Ride – the different amount of wardrobe changes the characters went through: 2015 Hoverboarding Marty McFly, Marty in the 1950’s with his black leather jacket, fedora and shades. Part III, the ELB Time Traveling Locomotive, Clara Clayton. So many possibilities for this franchise, it’s a shame McFarlane Toys or Mattel never figured this out. Here’s hoping the rumored Hot Toys do happen! Long live BACK TO THE FUTURE!
