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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.

    the good news is that you’ll have plenty of fodder if you ever want to make a working girl custom figure..

    No wonder Super7 didn’t want to announce what was in the blind bags. You just dropped $100 on 4 Ripleys, was it as much fun as Super7 said it would be in their press release?

  • Zedd says:

    @ voiceofreason: Hence the Super7 blind figure swap party at their booth on Friday….which is a great idea.

  • demoncat_4 says:

    four Ripleys and all the varients. what are the odds for surely at least one of those eggs had to have an alien. unless all the eggs have nothing but armies of Ripley’s

  • Skip says:

    That’s crazy! So are there repaints of everybody (Dallas, Ash, Alien) too, or just Ripley?!

  • Boatface says:

    There was 4 figures with 2 variants of each 1 star spekled black and 1 clear version, so Ripley in space suit, Ripley in regular clothes Cain with chest burst and xenomorph/alien figures
