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.

    Very excited for these. Hopefully retailers start clearancing out all of the obviously unwanted Stealth CPs,Winter Soldiers and Superior Spidermen figures so that there is room for this wave come January.

    nice love machine man plus the fun one is going to have trying to get the parts for what baf they want odin or thor . not to mention all those hands with iron fist. plus hasbro came through and did scarlet witch right as ml again making her better then the original one that looked like she had diarreha and was constipated. not to mention those magic circles one could use for doctor strange too.

    We’ll see if any of them appear at retail. Only interested in a couple, so no big deal if I can’t find them. Kind of lost interest in this line.

    Excellent!
    They are doing some good work.
    I know a lot of these were supposed to come out some time ago and a lot of them are simple redecos, but there’s some really good work in here and some nice effort with stuff like Iron Fist’s many hands, Carol’s extra masked head and Scarlet Witch’s hex effect blasts.

  • Ron says:

    I wonder why they gave Scarlet Witch bare upper chest and shoulders? I always remember seeing her in the comics with that portion of her costume colored PINK like her thighs/legs. It looks odd. I must’ve missed some costume variation.

    these up for pre-order anywhere yet?
