July 6, 2016

This past weekend Jada Toys was at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles and revealed a huge amount of new METALS product as well as announcing new licenses.  If you thought they were just hanging out in the Marvel Cinematic and DC Cinematic universes, think again!   We’ve already spotted Classic Ghostbusters and Classic animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit stores this month.  As is turns out that was just the tip of the iceburg and Jada has an incredible amount of new licenses, characters, poses and more coming to their Metals Die-Cast line.  Things are about to get HEAVY!

The METALS line from Jada just keeps getting bigger and bigger as Jada continues to add more brands, scales and awesome new concepts!

Many of these prototypes arrived right before the Anime Expo and they have not had studio shots created yet.

In the meantime, Jada did have studio shots of their next 6” METALS figure, – Hulk from Age of Ultron! At 6” he is the perfect scale with your other 4” Avengers, Captain America, and Iron Man METALS die cast figures. There is no questions, this Hulk will Smash!

METALS figures really need to be held to be believed. At over 1/2 lb. each, Jada’s METALS line is breaking the mold with figure collectables. Many more are coming and many many more will be shown at SDCC later this month! Be sure to stop by the Jada booth in the back of HALL D to see the latest METALS figures and pick up our awesome Civil War (Cap and Iron Man) and Suicide Squad (Harley and Joker) Bare Metals 2 pack exclusives ($30.00 each or show exclusive both for $50.00!) Both sets will be available post show at Hot Topic but without the SDCC “deal” and SDCC sticker on the front.

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
