April 14, 2008

Mezco’s wildly popular Cinema of Fear series continues with their third offering of 7inch figures. Featuring uncannily film accurate likenesses, the award winning Mezco sculptors prove once again they know the world of cinematic horror better than anyone.

The newest wave features for iconic horror figures;

*Freddy from Nightmare On Elm Street 5, with alternate hand, deformed Freddy baby, and film accurate chef hat.

*Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, includes infamous chainsaw, mallet, and maskless alternate head revealing the true face of horror!

*Jason from Friday The 13th Jason Goes to Hell, with machete, dagger, and the beloved miniature Jason demon.

*The Hitchhiker from the classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre. One of the most highly anticipated figures of 2008, this is the first time the hitchhiker has ever been captured in action figure form. Destined to become a fan favorite! He comes complete with his bindle, camera, pocketknife, and razor.

Each stands approximately 7 inches tall.

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.
