@JunkFed New York Comic Con 2017 #NYCC
September 29, 2017

Earth people!

New York Comic Con is next week and there are two Junk Fed exclusives up for grabs.

First, we bid farewell to the Space Madness series of resin action figures. Space Madness, a distillation of sci-fi, pop culture commonalities, began it’s three-year mission on June 20, 2014 with the release of the Imperial Spocktrooper. It’s only fitting that we close the series with his evil counterpart, Mirror Universe Imperial Spocktrooper.

This signed and numbered exclusive is a limited run of 20, is packaged on a mirrored cardback, and can only be found at the DKE Toys booth #678.

Speaking of space, you can also find exclusive Mini Moon Monster variant figure at New York Comic Con in the form of My Pet Moon Monster. Re-sculpted elements, and fresh coat of paint give this 5″ tall wierdo a look reminiscent of a certain monster toy from the 1980s.
This signed and numbered exclusive is a limited run of 10 and can only be found at Clutter Magazine booth #575.

But before we end transmission, remember space is the place.


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.
