No one likes to find ants on their food.   But what happens when the ant IS your food?!?!    Fans are going to have to figure that one out because the gang at PPW Toys is dipping back into Marvel Studios for another one of their Pop Culture spuds – Ant-Man!   Soon Ant-Man will be able to join the rest of your Mr. Potato-Head Avengers team!

Check out the details on this fun figure that we received from PPW Toys:

Coming out this year, we will add Ant-Man Mr. Potato Head to our Marvel Heroes Collection. Ant-Man Mr. Potato Head is one of our co-licensed spuds and will be available at select specialty retailers and websites only.


Our line of high quality 6″ Mr. Potato Head “PopTaters” are designed with collectors in mind. Each figure has 7-9 removable parts to mix and match. Our Mr. Potato Head collectible looks great on display and comes packaged in its own box to truly showcase the figure.

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.
