Geek Shall Inherit Episode 025 – Busted Butch, Sad Sundance
May 28, 2012

Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to all who do and have served in the armed forces. It’s because of your sacrifice that Jason and I are able to sit in a room together once a week and talk about whatever we want, and you are able to listen to it whenever you want.

We had a lot of ground to cover looking at this past week in pop culture. There was a lot happening in movies, TV and toys. We even cover some music and a book! We had a ball recording this episode and not even the sorrow of a broken figure could dampen our spirits.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Daniel talks about his experience last weekend in UCB’s Tournament of Nerds. You can see all of UCB’s pictures of that night here.
  • Daniel still wants ‘West Wing’ figures but wants a over from last week’s topic, and Jason brings in some ‘Show and Tell” from his answer last week. Everything is going great… until tragedy strikes…
  • Jason brings in the newest Paul McCartney re-issue deluxe boxed set.
  • GI Joe Retaliation has been pushed to March 2013.
  • Jason give his thoughts on the Skyfall teaser trailer.
  • The new 4-Minute The Amazing Spider-man Preview.
  • A little Avengers 2/Thor 2 speculation.
  • Cabin in the Woods
  • Sherlock Season 2 has wrapped.
  • House Series Final
  • We both think TRON : UPRISING is going to be fantastic.
  • MEGO MEET is June 8-9 in WV
  • Hot Toys Avengers Loki
  • Jason and Daniel’s latest action figure finds.

And much more!!!

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.
