New NYCC Battlestar Galactica Exclusive!
January 27, 2009

Diamond Select Toys is excited to announce the latest new exclusive available only at this year’s fourth annual New York Comic Con!  Celebrating the return of the hotly-anticipated final season of Battlestar Galactica, fans will be able to stop by booth #1133 and recruit their own Battlestar Galactica Stealth Cylon Centurion

Long a part of the Battlestar Galactica universe, the mysterious Stealth Cylon Centurions hide in the shadows, rarely making their existence known to anyone outside a select few.  Fans may recall the brief appearances of Stealth Cylon Centurions and Stealth Cylon Raiders in previous toy lines, however this marks the first time the rarely-seen robots have appeared in years.  This highly collectible Stealth Cylon Centurion will be limited to just 800 pieces.  A limited quantity will also be available for purchase on the Diamond Select Toys online store, beginning on Friday, February 6th. 

While enjoying New York Comic Con, also be sure to attend our special 2009: The Year of the Minimate Panel and Q&A!  This special panel will be held on Friday in Room 1A17 from 1:00-2:00 PM.  DSTChuck, Project Manager Robert Yee and special Minimate artists will be on hand to answer your questions, listen to your requests and showcase future Minimate licenses and designs!

 

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, 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.
