@JunkFed at #C2E2 2018
April 3, 2018
Thanks to the hospitality of the Galaxxor folks, you can find me  at C2E2 (April 6 – 8) 2018 peddling alongside the talents of Battle BabiesMan or Monster? Studio and more. Look for us all at booth #754 in The Block

Here’s what I’m bringing with me:

Bored of Fett! Because nobady likes Boba Fett. This C2E2 edition of 20 features mind-blowingly detailed paint applications by Battle Babies and excessively refettative™ card art by myself, after Tom Jung of course.
C2E2 marks the debut of my Mister Rogers action figure. Mister Rogers helped foster my imagination and reinforced the concept of self worth in my early years, so I felt a tribute was in order. If you cant make it to the show, Mister Rogers will also be available as an online preorder on 4/8/18. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Fred Rogers Center.
E.T. 800 premiers and is limited to 10 pieces for the show. An additional run will be available later in the year. Come with mE.T if you want to live! (I’m so sorry).
Additionaly, I’ll have some familiar nonsense from the archives as well as some new junk. 


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, 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.
