Mattel’s New Grayskulling Contest 6/17 – 7/2
June 17, 2013

Today Mattel announced their latest contest – “Grayskulling” and the prize is you could win a 2014 Club Eternia® Subscription! See the details below:


Planking is sooo 2011. Show us your Grayskulling today and you could win a free subscription to 2014 Club Eternia®! Here’s how it works…

First, you must channel your inner He-Man® and take a photo of yourself holding a humorous object over your head as if you were raising the Power Sword and proudly declaring “By the Power of Grayskull!” Got a lamp? That works. How about a Barbie® doll? Sure! No holds barred on creativity for either the object or the setting. The funnier it is, the better we’ll like it – bonus points for cosplay!

Click here to get all the forms you need (please be sure to read ALL the rules) and submit your photo to us as a JPG. We’ll select the best one and announce the winner at SDCC. The winner will be rewarded with a complimentary subscription to 2014 Club Eternia, valued at approximately $500 and we even pay the shipping. (Shameless Plug: Both Club Eternia and Club Infinite Earths 2014 subscriptions are available now!)

The contest runs from 6/17 at 9am PT through 7/2 at 11:59pm PT and we’ll post select photos on Facebook and in our Fan Forums throughout the entry period. Alright, what are you waiting for? Surely you can do better than the guy in this pic… get out there and get Grayskulling!


P.S. This contest is open only to residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. We wish it weren’t so, but every country has different rules and regulations regarding contests and it just isn’t possible for us to create and manage them all.

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.
