HBComics’  ™ Character Licensed by Shocker Toys


HBComics ™ independent comic character “Lazerman” ™ is getting the action figure treatment courtesy of Shocker Toys.


Shocker Toys acquired the license to design, develop, manufacture, distribute, market and sell designer figures and 6 inch scale action figures based on their Lazeman ™ comic property, HBComics announced on their website.


The Indy Spotlight line is a perfect blend of well known mainstream favorites, characters with more of a cult following, and "rising stars" you might not have heard of yet. I couldn’t imagine Lazerman being in better company.” Chris Hebert of HBComics  ™ noted on the publisher’s production blog.


Prototypes for Shocker’s first Lazerman products, which will include a 6” action figure and a Designer Vinyl “Mallow”, will be on display at Shocker Toys booth at TOY FAIR 2010, February 14-17 in the Javits Center in New York City. Chris and Alan Hebert, creators of the character and co-owners of HBComics ™, will be on hand on the 17th to help promote the figures, and the toy line.

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,,, 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.
