One Last Post About the 2015 MOTU Subscription #SaveHeMan
August 25, 2014

We are in the final hours of the re-opened 2015 MOTUC Club Eternia Subscription window and this will be our final post on the topic until the announcement of it funding or not.     My old pal Pixel Dan did a great video this weekend with his “guesses” on who else we might see in the 2015 line, and I don’t think I could say it any better than he did here, so I’m just going to post his video and let you know that we are still not quite there with the subs.

IF you want to jump in and sub you have until 11:59pm West Coast time and you can get your sub here at MATTYCOLLECTOR.com.

Take it away Danny!

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.

    the reason as pixel dan has pointed out that motu has run longer then the original line is that this time mattel manage to get the filmation rights and could make characters like shadow weaver and madam razz. that added to the line . besides odds are the results will proably be close enough if not the full percent mattel wants that like all the other times mattel will just go close enough sub goes through.
