LOS ANGELES, Tuesday May 31 2016 (BUSINESS WIRE) —  Between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas was the Hyborian Age. The Vanished Age.
The Age of Conan.
Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is proud to present their first piece of Robert E. Howard’s battleborn Barbarian, the greatest of the Cimmerians, Conan, as depicted by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the role that launched his career.
“When you think ‘Barbarian’ you think ‘Conan,’ and when you think Conan you think Arnold,” said Jerry Macaluso, President of Pop Culture Shock. “There would be no clemency given for this one, the likeness had to be flawless. And I think we nailed it. I’d hold it up with the best Schwarzenegger pieces ever made.”
Arnold himself might agree, personally approving it without a single note.
Hand crafted by PCS artisans in high-quality polystone, the cloth, leather and fur elements of his costume have been faithfully reproduced in mixed media, Atlantean Sword glimmering in polished metal, Wheel of Pain medallion hanging from his neck.
Produced in both a Classic and bloody War Paint versions, he stands almost 2 ½’ tall  (74cm) , posed on a lustrous marbled base in the film’s most iconic pose.
The ultimate Conan piece, a work to stand out in any collection, it will be available on PopCultureShockToys.com06.06.16 at 3:00 PM, PST, and nowhere else.

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.
