Sculptor Tim Bruckner Launches Website with New Model Kits, Statues
June 8, 2012

Tim Bruckner, a veteran sculptor who has done extensive work for DC Direct, Toy Biz, Dark Horse and many others in his 43 years in the field, has just launched a new Website and store at The site will function as a portal for model kit enthusiasts to purchase his original resin kits, as well as a place for statue collectors to acquire some of his unproduced sculptures, hand-painted and finished by the artist himself. The site also has a blog where he will share behind-the-scenes commentary on his numerous creations.

The site launches with three new model kits from Bruckner — a bust of Quasimodo based on the novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” and two different-sized kits of Tim’s horrific clown character, the Giggler.  New, full-color paint-ups offered in the shop include two new decos of Major Marjorie, Tim’s pin-up spacegirl inspired by the art of George Petty, and two decos of Prometheus, the Titan who brought fire to mankind. (Both paint-ups are also available as unpainted resin kits.)

Also in the shop are Tim’s line of 6″ Iconocasts kits and paint-ups — Ode to Joy, Cyrano and The Monster — as well as his first Modular Expression creation, the inifinitely interchangeable Beelzebub’s Bookkeeper. Aspiring sculptors can also pick up Tim’s expansive how-to book, “Pop Sculpture.”

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.
