Owlman Creators Bring Back Limited Edition Action Figure
April 25, 2017

 

The Owlman has become something of an internet cult figure over the last couple of years, with his epic reign of terror on unsuspecting Scottish explorers going seriously viral. The character of the Owlman originally appeared in the indie horror film Lord of Tears back in 2013, directed by Lawrie Brewster. The film itself was well received by fans and critics alike, but the Owlman’s popularity has grown way beyond his indie roots into the realm of internet folklore. Like his earlier counterpart and some would say distant cousin, Slenderman, the Owlman has captured the imagination of the horror community, spawning new stories, fan theories, costumes and even tattoos!

Back in 2015, the creators of the Owlman put out a limited edition Kenner-style Owlman figure, which sold out in a matter of weeks. Now, they’re bringing him back for one month only. Limited to just 100 exclusive signed figures, the release will help fund the completion of the team’s next film The Black Gloves. This next venture from Lord of Tears director Lawrie Brewster and writer Sarah Daly sees the triumphant return of the Owlman to the big screen, with a new set of unsuspecting victims in his sights. You can pre-order the movie on Kickstarter along with your very own Owlman to watch it with.

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.
