Geek Shall Inherit Episode 095 – Ringing In The New Year
January 13, 2014

logoOk. The holidays are over, we had our fun, but now it’s time to get back to work! We had a nice little break these past few weeks to visit with family. I darn near froze to death out in the mid-west and the “polar vortex” and Jason had his mom in town. We hope all of you also had a lovely holiday season, however you celebrated and we wish you all a happy new year! It is a new year now, and we missed you guys (and each other), so we are back with an all new episode chocked full of geek goodness and pop culture conversation.

We had about three weeks of topics to cover, and we didn’t get to them all but we cover an awful lot in an hour and forty minutes. Get comfortable because it’s about to get real chatty, and I try out a new catchphrase!

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.
