Geek Shall Inherit Episode 085 – Preemtive Cake Hole Shutting
September 6, 2013


Hey everybody… it’s not Monday, but still here’s a new episode for the week. Sorry this one it a bit late. The in-laws have been in town all week and we’ve been doing wall-to-wall “touristy” things to show them Los Angeles, our fair city. Also it’s my lovely bride that cuts together all the episodes and she’s been playing the hostess all week. But, I don’t feel that bad for you kids… you got two episodes last week after all!

Speaking of the bonus episode last week, there is a little more “Batfleck” talk to fill in the gaps from the last episode, but then we move on to other content. What KIND of content? Well…

In this episode we cover:

  • Sons of Anarchy is back for a new season on FX Sept 10th.
  • New single from Paul McCartney called ‘New’, and new album in October. also, strong rumors that a second Beatles Live at the BBC CD set is coming.
  • Listener of the week – John Wesley Huff.
  • James Spader cast as Ultron in Avengers 2.
  • Daniel saw The Wolverine.
  • Jason saw Evil Dead remake, Blue Jasmine and great Danny Boyle flick called Trance on DVD.
  • Frank Darabont’s Mob City coming in Dec. to TNT.
  • Ricky G’s Derek coming on Netflix.
  • Daniel finished season one of Orange is the New Black.
  • New Rambo TV show in talks with Sly.
  • Thor will be showing up at Disneyland.

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.
