June 29, 2015

(BALTIMORE, MD) – (June 25, 2015)-Save your money in one of two new exclusive banks by Monogram Products, available only in the July PREVIEWS catalog. No one would dare try to take your cash from the bust bank of Rocket Raccoon from the 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy or the glow-in-the-dark Harley Quinn head bank. Both banks are available to pre-order from the July PREVIEWS catalog.


The Rocket Raccoon sculpted bust bank features the loud-mouthed, trigger-happy Rocket standing aggressively while proudly brandishing a large gun. Rocket’s legs are fixed to a black base featuring the movie’s title. As Rocket Raccoon said, “Ain’t no thing like me, ‘cept me,” and this bank would truly be a unique way for Guardians of the Galaxy fans to look after loose change! The bank can be found in the July PREVIEWS catalog on page and can be purchased using code JUL152827 for $24.99. The bank will ship in mid-August.

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.
