“Sold Out Doesn’t Mean All Sold Out, Yet” Says Mezco Toyz
July 17, 2013

 San Diego CA- As the countdown to world’s most famous Comic-Con gets underway in San Diego, Mezco Toyz wants you to know that hope is not lost just because a Summer Exclusive is marked Sold Out on the Mezco Website.

“For the Summer Exclusives, we set aside a certain amount to be sold on MezcoToyz.com and a certain amount to be sold at our booth at San Diego. So if you see an item marked Sold Out on the website, that simply means we sold out the allotment for MezcoToyz.com, there will still be merchandise at the booth!” says Mezco’s Vice President, Susan Sisco from booth 3445 at San Diego Comic Con.

“However” says Mezco’s Special Project’s Director, “these are all limited editions and I doubt if they will last long. Interest and demand for all our products are very high, but fans of the Creature From the Black Lagoon, and especially Breaking Bad are very, very enthusiastic!”

“I’m not a gambling man” said Mezco’s Pierre Kalanzaga, “but I would be willing to wager that our Breaking Bad Hazmat Suit Walter White, The Creature glow in the dark and black and white figures, and several of our other exclusives will be sold out quickly.”

“Never underestimate the popularity of Snarf” added Mezco’s Damien Glonek, “or Axe Cop. Get to our booth as soon as you can and avoid disappointment”.

Be sure to visit Mezco at San Diego Comic Con at booth 3445.

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, 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.
