It’s a visual diary.” In conjunction with The Andy Warhol Foundation, Kidrobot brings you this intimate look in to Andy Warhol’s life with the Andy Warhol Polaroid Series 2. Using his camera much like we use Instagram today, Andy Warhol created a diary of his life through the lens of a Polaroid camera.

Andy Warhol 20″ Camo Dunny Plush
Based on the question “What can I do that would be abstract but not really abstract,” he posed to his studio assistants this plush Dunny comes in an all-over camo print. Unlike military motifs, Warhol’s Camouflage prints reflect bright and inorganic colors that would not be suitable for any landscape. Standing 20” tall and constructed with super soft plush, this Andy Warhol plush Dunny will add new depth to any Warhol collection.

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.
