December 28, 2012

SOUTH BEND, Indiana – 12/06/2012 – Round 2 is excited to announce the 1958 Plymouth Fury from the movie Christine, based on Steven King’s best-seller.  The 1983 movie poster proclaimed: She was born bad. Plain and simple. The limited edition die-cast replica of the Fury has been upgraded to accurately reflect the movie car. You’ll swear it’s alive. Christine is available in 1:18 scale die-cast, as a 1:25 scale standard model, and a 1:43 resin model.


“Christine” is a limited edition 1:18 scale die-cast replica with red body and red interior, dark tinted windows, and working headlights. The finely detailed features of this vehicle include chrome hub caps with white wall tires and the golden Commando 350 V8 engine with engine block coloring and two 4-barrel carbs boasting 305hp, as well as upgraded features like front and rear screen accurate license plates, detailed dash panels, carpet and door coloring, and authentically finished exterior trim.

The 1:25 scale AMT model includes modern tooling, with vinyl tires with whitewall inserts, super-detailed chassis, motor, and interior assemblies. The level 2 kit is molded in white, includes a sheet full of optional decals, and will be available at retail February 2013.  Christine will also be available later in 2013 in a high-quality 1:43 scale resin replica. Featuring a red body with detailed red interior, dark tinted windows, and chrome hub caps with white wall tires, this model has never been made in resin in this scale. The 1:43 scale model includes a clear display case and base.

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.
