April 17, 2012

Welcome to all the new eyes and ears.  Whether you found us through the ‘ActionFigureInsider Facebook page or you saw our plug on G4’s ‘Attack of the Show’we’re glad to have you here, at AFi home of the ‘Best Darn Toy News on the Internet.  We invite you to have a look around, take a listen to the podcast and join in on the conversation on the forums!  We’ve got another extra beefy episode of the “Geek Shall Inherit’ podcast for you this week!  It starts off with a full episode of chat and then we follow that up with a couple of short interviews with two new up and comers in the comics industry that I think will do great things some day.  Who’s that you ask?  Oh.. just STAN LEE and ROBERT KIRKMAN!!

In this episode the guys discuss:

  • Daniel tells how Easter for him will forever be tied… to Ernest Borgnine.
  • The guys reveal a segment suggestion from one of the listeners and cover his questions about the BifBangPow! Venture Brothers line and What’s up with Mattel and their DC comics lines?
  • The guys give their thoughts on the underwhelming John Carter Blu-Ray and DVD covers.
  • Disney’s California Adventure’s ElecTRONica going off line.
  • Jason’s finds his childhood in the bottom of a drawer.
  • Avenger’s premiere last week and what folks that saw it are saying. (spoiler free!)
  • Daniel talks a bit about his ‘Comic Con: Episode IV A Fan’s Hope  red carpet premiere experience.
  • And then we cap things off with the interviews with Stan Lee and Robert Kirkman.

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.
