Geek Shall Inherit Episode 027 – Changing the Way Everyone Does Everything
June 12, 2012

Back on track! I’m excited to have this new epsiode up this Monday… but Jason is feeling the pressure to deliver. This week it’s another split episode, but that also makes it a longer episode! First up we have a full length regular episode followed by three interviews conducted last week at E3 2012 with the “Transformers: Fall of Cybertron“, “The Amazing Spider-man” and “Lego Batman 2” teams.

In this episode we cover –

  • Prometheus toys coming from N.E.C.A… or “Neck-A” as JASON like to say.
  • Jason builds his toy gun armory.
  • The new Justice League Movie from Warner Brothers is back on track.
  • The Russo Brothers from ‘Community’ will be directing Cap Am 2.
  • What we are excited about –
    Daniel -The rights to the 66′ batman finally being untangled.
    Jason – Yellow Submarine on Blu-ray.
  • New Comic Con Exclusives – NECA and Hasbro.
  • June 9th is the 30th Anniversary of BLADE RUNNER and it’s the 25th anniversary of Spaceballs!
  • Jason updates us on the progress on the Walmart challenge.
  • Ray Bradbury passing.
  • How do YOU say “NECA?”
  • Geek Shall Inherit Bobbleheads – Who’s in?
  • Daniel talks a bit about what he saw last week at E3.

And then we follow it all up with the three E3 interviews.

All that and more!

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.
