As you might have read in recent press releases, we’ve been trying to work things out with the factory to try to get some of the Hagnon figures from the Mythic Legions: Advent of Decay figure to glow green while retaining the original translucent white/clear look, and others to glow blue. While the green glow looks fantastic, we haven’t quite gotten the blue glow to meet our expectations just yet, and we don’t want this issue to hold up the production time of the Advent of Decay wave any more than it’s already been held up by other issues.

Because of this, all of the Hagnon figures in the Advent of Decay waves (both the pledges/pre-orders from last year and the current pre-orders) will glow green while still retaining that ghostly white/clear look when not glowing, and IF we do manage to get the blue to glow to a level that we’re happy with, we’ll release that version of Hagnon somewhere else down the road.

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.
