Take a Spin in the Black Beauty at SDCC!
July 21, 2010

THE GREEN HORNET looks to create quite the buzz at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con as show attendees will be invited to enter BRITT REID’S GARAGE, with the opportunity to take a ride in THE BLACK BEAUTY itself. Fans of the franchise will be offered the chance of a lifetime as they sit within the mobile fortress and cruise downtown San Diego with a sexy Green Hornette girl.

The Green Hornet’s garage from the film from director Michel Gondry will be faithfully reproduced for fans to visit during the con.

  • Open to the public located on the corner of 10th and K street in Downtown San Diego right next to Petco Park- 280 North 10th Ave., San Diego, CA 92101
  • On Friday from 5:30-10:00am popular Los Angeles morning radio show 106.7 KROQ’s ‘Kevin and Bean Show’ will be broadcasting live from Britt’s garage.   

The highly anticipated film is set to hit theaters January 14, 2010 and tells the heroic story of Britt Reid (Seth Rogen), son of LA’s most prominent and respected media magnate. Perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene, Britt’s life changes direction when his father (Tom Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire. Striking an unlikely friendship with one of his father’s more industrious and inventive employees, Kato (Jay Chou), they see their chance to do something meaningful for the first time in their lives: fight crime. But in order to do this, they decide to become criminals themselves – protecting the law by breaking it, Britt becomes the vigilante The Green Hornet as he and Kato hit the streets.

The Green Hornet movie opens nationwide on January 14th, 2011.

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.
