The gang over at Super7 have posted an update as well as an FAQ for fans interested in their new RE-Action figures and their SDCC exclusives:

A million thanks to everyone for the overwhelmingly positive response to our ALIEN ReAction Figure exclusives for San Diego Comic Con!  Looks like we are going to have a very busy booth at SDCC this year…and that is awesome!    For all the details on the ALIEN exclusives, please check out this post:

With the reaction to ReAction being so strong, we feel it is necessary to limit the DISCOVERED SALES SAMPLE 2-PACK of BIG CHAP & KANE to one set per customer.   This is a limited edition item available only at SDCC, and we would like to be able to supply the figures to as many different customers as possible before the inevitable sell out.   Your understanding is greatly appreciated.

We also have fielded many questions about the ALIEN ReAction Figures availability, so we put together a short FAQ which you can read here:

Our exclusives are now listed on the official SDCC website as well….spread the word!

We have many more exclusives left to announce! We have at least 15 different Designer Vinyl Toy announcements to make, so stay tuned!

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 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.
