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.

      evilwilma, I purchased the Hawks set today and they are 100% as they should be. Funko/Target muffed the mock-ups Daniel shared here, not sure why. Carter Hall has pants!!

        I saw some of these tonight. They were fun. There was also a Joker/Battlesuit Luthor set which looked neat.
        I must resist. I must resist. I must resist.

        Also, hey! It’s OJ! Long time no.

          Happy 2018! I knew I recognized the evilwilma handle, those were the days!

          Good mention of the Joker/Lex pack, I missed that it was not part of this article until you said so, but that set was the first one I grabbed on a chance Target stop Tuesday morning.

          I was a day late on the Funko press release here too. It was a complete surprise to me to see the whole Target endcap when I was actually there to check out what was new in the BLACK PANTHER line. My head about exploded!

          What I love about the DCU figures is that that designs appear heavily inspired by the work over 30 years ago of the DC Style Guide, Super Powers and Crisis on Infinite Earths. Total winners in my book.
