Geek Shall Inherit Episode 012 is Live!
February 28, 2012

Happy Monday all!  We are back with another new show with a whole new roster of topics across the pop culture spectrum.  Jason’s voice sounds much better this episode so no more “Lauren Bacall” voice. In this episode Daniel and Jason discuss:


  •  Jason went on a mini-vacation and saw some movies, including “The Muppets.”   Did he like it as much as Daniel?
  • Star Wars: Episode 1 made $22.5M  in it’s opening weekend.  It was only in top 10 for the it’s first 2 weeks of release.  Some EP1 stuff already on clearance.
  • A fan made trailer for John Carter is better than anything Disney has put out for the film up to this point.
  • Is Kevin Smith’s ‘Comic Book Men’ show doing more harm than good for geek culture?
  • And the guys tackle a reader question of: Do you think generic action figure lines can survive in the long term?
  • All that and more in Episode 12 of Geek Shall Inherit!

Check out the all new episode here or on iTunes.


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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, 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.
