One Last Chance to Pick Up “The Toys That Time Forgot” Book – @toysthattimeforgot
September 6, 2017

If you missed out on the orignal Kickstarter for the amazing “Toys that Time Forgot” book, if you’ve been pining over all of the pictures on social media of all of us who have the book in-hand now, you have one more chance to get a copy for yourself!    Blake has posted on the TTTF social media channels this week how fans can scoop up the last remaining books.   See below for details:

Let’s play Good, Better, Best! Good… The books are ok! Better… We’re heading back to Texas later this week. Best… that means the books are on sale again!

You can order your copy of Toys That Time Forgot directly from us. For US residents, just PayPal $58 ($50 for the book plus $8 s/h) to blake@littleplasticmen.com. Please make sure your shipping address is correct. In Canada? PayPal $85 ($50 for the book plus $35 s/h). Elsewhere in the world? PayPal $100 ($50 for the book plus $50 s/h). I am sorry about the international shipping rates, but this is what it costs to send a four pound box out of the country these days… even on the slow boat. Orders received during this period should ship out in 7 to 10 days post payment. You will receive notice when your book is en route.

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.
