Pop Culture Shock Collectibles Announces Business Evolving to “Direct To Collector”
January 4, 2013

PopCultureSlogoLOS ANGELES, December 27th, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE)—Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is making waves in the hi-end collectible product marketplace, announcing today it is moving to a Direct To Collector business model starting immediately.

“I started PSCS in 2008 as a fan who just wanted to make statues for other collectors like myself,” stated Jerry Macaluso, President and Founder of Pop Culture Shock Collectibles. “It makes me incredibly proud to say that our fans & followers have now made a direct sales program feasible. That means 10-20% lower prices, giving fans even more input into our selections, and being able to offer exciting variants and smaller-run specials.”

“This is going to be our busiest year yet and I’m happy we can kick it out with this DTC initiative.” Macaluso added, “I’m looking forward to revealing all the great items we have planned for 2013.”

January will see the first of two direct offerings up for Pre-Order; 1:4th Scale Shao Kahn from Mortal Kombat and a Street Fighter Diorama featuring fan favorites Akuma & Gouken. The Pop Culture Shock Collectibles website will be the ONLY Avenue to acquire these hot items.

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.
