In Stores Today: DST Femme Fatales Raven Hex Statue!
April 25, 2012

It’s Wednesday, which means hordes of comic book fans are flocking to their local comic shops to pick up the latest releases. For those of you hoping to pick up the latest issue of <i>Tarot, Witch of the Black Rose</i> (the deluxe and signed editions of #73 arrive today), you may also want to swing by the toy department, because the newest Femme Fatales statue from Diamond Select Toys is also shipping to stores! Raven Hex, the stern sorcery-slinging sister of Tarot, stands 9 inches tall and is cast in PVC plastic, which puts her price far below that of most resin statues. Our original statue of Tarot is sold out, and we expect her sister to move just as fast! Pick one up and take her home today — those comic stores get cold at night.

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 www.ActionFigureInsider.com. 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 MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, 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.
