Toy Fans,

Today we’re pulling for the bad guys to win because our 2014 subscriptions are stocked with some of the most fan-demanded evil-doers we’ve ever offered, and it’s the last day to sign up. Today is also the last day to reach the minimum pre-order goal for the new Ecto-1 vehicle, so…


It’s time to get down with your bad self. It’s the last day for MOTU fans to sign up for a 2014 Club Eternia® subscription to ensure you get this year’s club-exclusive figure, the Unnamed One™ with the bonus Horde Empire map and the rest of the 2014 MOTUC lineup. It’s all about fan-demanded, collection-completing characters and you won’t want to miss a single one.

Today is also the last day for DCU fans to sign up for a 2014 Club Infinite Earths subscription. Reaching Level 1 means we’ll bring you the club-exclusive Doomsday and if we can make it to Level 2, you’ll get Doomsday like you’ve never seen him before.

And finally, it’s time to make a vote for the good guys! We have until today, August 19, 2013, at 11:59 p.m. PT to hit the minimum pre-order goal for the new Ecto-1 vehicle and the new 6” Ray Stantz and Peter Venkman figures. If we reach it, production will move forward and pre-orders will be taken through November 5, 2013. Remember, you don’t have to pay a dime up front – your credit card will be charged zero dollars and you’ll have the chance to cancel your order if you’re unhappy with the product’s development. Make sure you check out the product page for all the details, including pricing and awesome features (it’ll play the “Ghostbusters” theme!) and get your pre-order in today!

If you’ve been sitting on the sidelines, now is the time to make your move. Sign up for a subscription or pre-order the Ecto-1 and the new Ray and Peter figures.



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 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.

    It’d be nice if they offered the Doomsday as a pre-order item — I never understood why they would tease the version people want as a “level 2” item and have the version no one wants as the basic target version. I’d snap up the Doomsday in a heartbeat if it were offered.

    Have a good day.
