Earlier this week the Four Horsemen announced the details of their 2013 Toypocalypse showcase that runs along side Toy Fair 2013.  Like last year there will be a custom component to the show where fans can submit their work on any form of custom Power Lords to be a part of the show.  There were some pretty amazing submissions in last years show, I have no doubt that this year will be just as impressive.  Below are the details if you’d like to participate:


The Outer Space Men Customs and Art Show was such an amazing success last year at Toypocalypse 2: Futuretro, that we decided to go ahead and do it again at the rapidly approaching Toypocalypse 3, but this time the subject matter of the show is the Power Lords!

Once again, we’d LOVE for you to submit your own artwork based on the Power Lords or extra terrestrial inspired customs or artwork to the show!

Toypocalypse 3 (details coming later this week) will begin on February 9th at 7pm, but we’ll need any artwork or customs that you’ll be submitting for the show to be delivered to us by Feb. 1st, 2013 (deadline for application & dimensions – Jan. 18th).

For all of the details about the Power Lords Customs & Art Show, and go to the link on the right side of the page – “POWER LORDS ART SHOW SUBMISSION FORM”, or just click this link: http://www.powerlordsreturn.com/?p=140

Can’t wait to see your Power Lords creativity!!

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.
