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.

    Great that they are releasing those four DC figures at least (and containment Doomsday as an exclusive). Only want Damian, hope I can get him.

  • Shellhead says:

    And those of us who are current sub subscribers will get early access, right?

  • Hasby says:

    <– stunned

    I did not expect these figures to be released… "It's all about MOTU" with these people. Too bad this isn't a sub. I'd go in on one with somebody who wants Aquaman, Superboy and Damien. I just want Ice. Well, Ice and Miss Martian. Or just one figure customizer to friggin answer a "how much for Miss Martian" email. But I'm good with Ice. Perhaps I'll hold off on taking a hammer to my Night-Lik figure after all. …for now.

  • Anubis8 says:

    Absolute BS the way that Mattel has handled this license as well as the subscribers.

  • Lee in MI says:

    On the bright side, Mattel is finally listening to the fans!

    The exclusive Total Justice figs come with extra hands, extra heads and lots of accessories! Everything we always wanted…for the DCIE o_0

  • Hasby says:

    I’m a 6 inch DC and Marvel person. I know nothing about MOTU and have zero interest in that line/universe. I have no idea if this is based on a comic book, a cartoon or subway graffiti now-a-days. But if there is source material that they’re basing these figures on and the writers of said source material are reading this I have a request… create some characters like… I dunno, “Van-Dall”. Evil “master” of “Savagery”. He’s like, immortal or something. And maybe “Miz-Mar-Shen”. A green chick with red hair who’s the “heroic mistress of telepathy, shape shifting and telekinesis”. Or how about “Tehm-Pest”. Heroic aquatic lad. Ya’ pickin’ up what I’m throwin’ down here? Ya’ smell what I’m steppin’ in?

    Sadly, this is the only way we’re getting these figures unless DC DIRECT cools it with their recent Arkham/New 52 fetish.
    (PS, DC DIRECT, please cool it with your Arkham/New 52 fetish)

    Thank you.

    Dependent on the price, I might try to get Ice, maybe Aquaman but won’t lose any sleep if I get neither.
