MOTU Pre-Sale Update/Extension from Super7
December 1, 2016

Today Super7 sent out an update on their progress on improving international shipping rates as well as extending the pre-sale cut off a few days while they review the information:


MOTU Pre-Order International Shipping

We understand many of you still have questions about our international shipping costs.  We have 2/3 of the numbers we need to review from the various shipping companies and should have the remaining numbers today that will allow us to select an international shipping agent and implement reduced shipping costs for our worldwide customers. As soon as we have the official information, we will let you all know.

Because of this, we are extending the end of the MOTU pre-sale until SundayDecember 4th so everyone has time to take advantage of any reduced shipping rates.

Thank you for your patience!

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.
