Buy a SkullyBoom and HELP Haiti
January 26, 2010

With the most recent disasters in Haiti, its been refreshing to see how people are reacting to the travesty.  Even during a time of economic strain, people are still taking a step back and contributing to a needy cause.  The catastrophe has made many of us reflect on how fortunate we are to live in the community we live in.  We would also like to recognize how much we value the luxury of pursuing creative endeavors.

For the next week, we would like to step forward to help raise money for the Haiti Relief Fund through the American Red Cross
For every SkullyBoom SB1 Pre-order,we will donate $10 to the American Red Cross.


For the DIY Skully, we will also donate an additional $5 for every DIY Skully purchased through February 5th.  There are only 20 spots remaining for the PVC show, so you better nab one while you still can.



Production Updates

The SB1 is scheduled to start production at the end of this month with a March release date.  We are still offering the SB1 at  $29.99 pre-order pricing (wholesale orders included).  Your account will not be charged till the product ships. 


There has never been a better time to nab an SB1 and hopefully save a life in Haiti.

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,,, 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.
