Daniel Pickett

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.

    Well, the (SPOILERS!) helmet did get left behind… I imagine that it’s the first trophy in the JL trophy room.

    I got the toys r us parademon. So cool!

  • Tilly says:

    Why all the hashtags and ampersands? Do industry people from Twitter and Facebook ask for that?

    Just curious.

    • This is because we have now linked our Instagram account to our front page. We have a very robust following on IG now and because of the immediate nature of IG they were getting a lot of different content than readers of the main page. I wanted the main site to capture everything. So when we us the “@” and “#” a lot of it comes from IG. But, also, yes you are correct, industry folks like for you to tag them in things so they see them and can repost them.

    So, like I did with the TRU-exclusive Wonder Woman, I think I can leave this one behind. The WW, which looked to be literally exactly the same as the standard BvS WW figure, just came with a shield for herself and one for Ares. This Aquaman is at least different from his previous 2 Multiverse figures, but dunno if it’s worth the buy for the Steppenwolf head.

    I want those Parademons, however. Of course, my TRU doesn’t have them yet – they tend to get the exclusives weeks or months after other stores.
