Knocking Heads With Harry
October 2, 2010
Deathly Hallows HeadKnockers are ready for the final battle!


In the wide wizarding world, there’s none so famous as Harry Potter, and as he prepares to settle the score once and for all with Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, NECA is right there all the way. NECA has got a whole new line of goodies to celebrate the first part of the movie’s release in November, starting with three new HeadKnockers of Harry, Hermione and Ron!


These intrepid young wizard friends have undertaken the biggest challenge of their lives, to find and destroy the Horcruxes and stop Voldemort before he can take complete control of the whole magical world, Hogwarts included. What better way to cheer these three heroes on than to keep their heads a-knocking, on your desk, shelf or dash? Everyone knows that’s how you root for the home team!

The  Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger HeadKnockers are gorgeously hand-painted, stand over six inches tall and come each on a Hogwarts base, with brand new sculpts that capture their character perfectly. Whether it’s the strong leadership of Harry, the determination of Ron or Hermione‘s fierce drive, you can see it all right on their faces. Their massively-proportioned, jiggling faces.

The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows HeadKnockers will be in stores in November, and of course, they’ll be featured on NECA’s Amazon storefront.

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.
