Scary Cat: Mezco’s Mega DeathMittens Plush Hits The Town
September 3, 2013

New York- Mezco’s newest addition to it’s popular Creeply Cuddler’s line is the oversized Mega DeathMittens. After hitting stores last week Mega DeathMittens quickly began to sell out and is now in the process of being restocked. Mega DeathMittens is the 1st Creepy Cuddler figure to be Mega-sized by Mezco and fans have declared her a hit!

To celebrate her success, DeathMittens snuck out of Mezco Toyz headquarters and headed to the Jekyll & Hyde Club. Located in the very heart of Times Square at 216 West 44th st it’s a haunted eatery for eccentric explorers and mad scientists, at the Jekyll & Hyde Club, guests enjoy continuous live entertainment and special effects, all the while sipping specialty cocktails and dining on handcrafted American fare.

While at the club, DeathMittens made a ton of new friends and found that the Jivaro make some fine cat toys!

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.
