Remember you don’t have to answer EVERY question to win, you just have to answer the MOST!   So give it a shot!


Last week our friends at Gentle Giant announced the first ever “Gentle Giant Day” Saturday Nov 14th at Blast from the Past in Burbank.

Maybe you can’t make it to Burbank.  Maybe you don’t even live in California.  Maybe you still want to win some awesome Gentle Giant ltd. products.
That’s where WE come in!   We have teamed up with Gentle Giant to have a pre-Gentle Giant Day trivia contest.  But, we aren’t going to make it easy on you.  You are going to need to know your GG history!

These are some tough, tricky questions and there’s not a lot of information on the early days of Gentle Giant out there on the internet.

Whoever sends us the MOST correct right answers by Friday November 6th at 11:59pst will be our winner.

If there is more that one person with the most right answers we will have a random drawing with the eligible entrants.

The winner will get to jumpstart their Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars Jumbo Action Figure collection with the SDCC 2015 Exclusive DEADPOOL figure AND the Hobgoblin!

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 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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
