Team Fortress 2: The Engineer Statue
January 20, 2014

January 16th 2014: Happy New Year, Gaming Heads!
We hope that everybody enjoyed the holiday break; we’re back to bring you our first piece of 2014.
In the run up to the holidays, we have had many requests coming from fans for a new addition to our Team Fortress 2 range. So it’s with great pride that we can reveal The Engineer statue to fans! Of course, the Engineer has a myriad of different weapons and gadgets at his disposal, so we pushed the boat out further than ever before for this piece. You could almost say that we ‘went to town’ on this one…

Not only does the regular edition come with the Engineer’s trademark wrench, it also comes with an additional golden wrench to swap with depending on the collector’s preference. The exclusive version has a multitude of different features.
Not only does the statue include both wrenches (as is standard on the regular model), but also includes a further two additional pieces. The first is the Engineer’s basic sentry turret, which features a beacon that illuminates. The second piece is another one of the Engineer’s weapons: The Gunslinger, which can replace the Engineer’s wrench-holding hand if desired. The exclusive version of the Engineer’s base has also been made a little bigger to accommodate the extra space needed to create a very complete looking statue to add to your collection.

The regular Engineer comes in both RED (available here) and BLU (available here) variants, are both limited to 750 pieces each and both costs $219.99. Click a colour to be taken to the relevant ordering page.
Likewise, the exclusive Engineer also comes in both RED (available here) and BLU (available here) variants, are both limited to only 350 pieces each and both cost $269.99. Click a colour to be taken to the relevant ordering page.
Look forward to another year of great releases!

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.
