September 17, 2012

NEW YORK, New York (September 17, 2012)  After a successful, fully-funded Kickstarter project to fund an exclusive colorway of the Scott Tolleson Uncle Argh Noir Mini Qee, Tenacious Toys is gearing up to sell the remaining stock of Argh Noirs on their website www.tenacioustoys.com beginning Wednesday, September 19th at 9AM EST.

While the fulfillment of the some of the Scott Tolleson original art rewards is still pending, the shipment of the actual Argh Noir Mini Qee rewards is now complete, with backers all across the globe having received their 5-inch Argh Noir Mini Qees in the mail.

“I am very grateful that the toy community banded together to help me fund this exclusive via Kickstarter, so I felt it was only right to hold off on selling remaining Argh Noirs until all backers have received theirs,” said Tenacious Toys CEO Benjamin Kline.

Toy collectors who missed out on contributing to the Kickstarter, but who are still looking to add the Argh Noir to their collection, may go to www.tenacioustoys.com on September 19th to purchase an Argh Noir Mini Qee.

The Argh Noirs will also be available at the Tenacious Toys booth #3121 at the New York Comic Con starting on October 11th and will make an appearance in the goody bags offered to attendees at the 2012 Designer Toy Awards, which will be held during NYCC in New York City.

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
