NECA’s Next San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive: Video Game Jason Voorhees!
June 6, 2013

Some glow-in-the-dark goodness from NECA:

The 1989 8-bit Friday the 13th has been rightly called one of the worst video games of all time, and like anything truly terrible worth its salt, has built a considerable cult following as a result.

We love Friday the 13th. New, old, original, sequels, Freddy vs. Jason, it doesn’t matter. And when it comes to saluting our cult heroes (or villains, as it were), we’re keen to embrace what most consider missteps along the way.

Hence Video Game Jason:

Complete with glowing hands, feet, mask and weapons, the Video Game Jason Voorhees Action Figure brings new life to the horror icon’s appearance in that lost classic of lousy gaming, and it’s just the kind of cult item we love to bring with us to Comic-Con.

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.
