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.

    Very nicely done, but this “elite” Lady Action figure is only affordable to the wealthier collector. Captain Action Enterprises (CAE) should consider releasing an affordable Lady Action figure at a similar price point to Captain Action as well as Super Heroine costumes. I could envision CAE taking advantage of the current popularity of the Avengers movie(s) and offer Black Widow & Scarlet Witch costumes and/or doing costumes reviving the DC-centric Super Queens companion line from 1967 (Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl & Mera). BUT all this is wishful thinking as CAE cannot seem to move the Captain Action line forward in any reasonable amount of time. More than a year has past since the last real new product (Iron Man & Wolverine costumes) were released. There was also no news at this year’s comic cons and toy fairs of the proposed Dr. Evil/Red Skull costume or any of the announced DC costumes (Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Joker). CAE has also thus far neglected mentioning anything with sidekick, Action Boy. I have loved Captain Action since the 60’s, but the absence of news of any real progression with the line has me thinking that CAE’s efforts may go the way of Playing Mantis in reviving or maintaining interest in Captain Action. CAE really needs to give fans progress updates on the line either at their website & Facebook page… and PLEASE no more useless “variants” – putting Captain Action in a white box with a different hat, calling it a “Holiday Variant” and charging $75 for it, is pretty lame and also shameful. CAE give collectors some real news and get production on the new costumes moving or you are going to see consumer interest evaporate.
