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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.

    Mr pickett hello and good evening

    Im a fan of the super powers line and i know that you are also a true fan.

    I work as a 3D and concept artist, but i love to collect toys.

    One of my biggest dreams is to make a darkseid tower of darkness playset replica as close as possible to original.

    Throughout the years i’ve gathered a lot of references to make this thing possible.

    Recently i bought a 3d printer and with this machine making this playset can be real.

    Because you are a master in the field i would like to know if you can help me with two things :

    1) I would like a better image of the package proof to make it as close as possible to the original.
    The images i need are just close ups of the characters that are drawn on front (superman, kalibak steppenwolf).

    2) Also the children playing with the playset, that i can` t draw hehehehe.

    Also if you have anything else that could help me out like blueprints or any info let me know.

    I want to make this as a kickstarter project, and i hope you can help me out.

    I want to include you in the kickstater project, and make you my professional advisor.

    Thank you for your time,

    Sincerely chris penn

    • I like where your head is and I’d love one too… but I would advise AGAINST starting a Kickstarter that uses one of Warner Brother’s copyrighted characters. That will only end in heartache.
