“You weak pathetic fools, I’ve come for your souls!”

LOS ANGELES, Dec. Jan. 26th 2016 (BUSINESS WIRE)–– The Mortal Kombat franchise was never for want of evil bosses. But then in 1993, with the sequel’s launch, MK fans met Shao Khan…and the “big bad” bar was raised even higher.

“I remember the first time I heard the taunts of Shao Khan.” said Jerry Macaluso, President of Pop Culture Shock, “…such a frustrating battle, but I knew Goro has been dethroned as MK’s ultimate badass!”

This fearsome polystone statue showcases the Emperor of the Outworld. With the expert prowess of PCS’s small army of artisans, no detail has been spared. With precise craftsmanship, you’ll marvel over every spike of armor and every studded piece of armor. Clocking in at an impressive 22 inches tall, Shao beckons for more shelf space that a normal mortal statue would dictate.

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.
