Rarity MIMOBOT is the super glam unicorn of the crew, sporting diamond-esque cutie marks, fluttery eyelashes, and a refined vocabulary. Rarity includes an indicator light that will give off a bright glow to expose buried treasures, like your most recent report or assignment. A precious jewel for any MIMOBOT collector’s trophy case, Rarity is a special-edition product available exclusively at www.mimoco.com.

Twilight Sparkle MIMOBOT is hungry for knowledge and data. From her ‘moondancer’ cutie-mark to her starry eyes, this little pony has seemingly no end to what universal truths she can store – besides her capacity – which, fortunately, can go up to a large 128GB.

Rainbow Dash MIMOBOT is so fast she gives our super-speed USB 3.0 drives a run for their memory! Full of speed, spunk, and now your digital memories, Rainbow Dash’s MIMOBOT radiates her prism-spectrum mane, lightning-cloud cutie mark, and undeniable charisma.

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, 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.
