OCTOBER 15, 2014 (Champaign, IL): A new era for the 5.5’’ action figure is poised to begin, with the help of fans worldwide. Since the announcement of impending Kickstarter launch of Eon Quest, the reaction from collectors worldwide has been incredibly enthusiastic. People have already started to embrace the characters and storyline, with Captain Wolfmoon™ being an early favorite. The Kickstarter will launch Series 1, which consists of five characters—Starbreaker™, Uplink™, Captain Wolfmoon, the Magmoid™, and the Magmoid Captain™. Each figure features swappable arms, legs and heads so parts can be mixed and matched with other figures in the line. They include removable armor, unique accessories, and a free mini-comic.

“The response from collectors and fans has been so great, already,” says Eon Quest creator Jon Wesley Huff. “I’m really just so grateful that people have embraced the concept and the characters so quickly. If the Kickstarter is funded, there are definitely plan for more series of figures so we can quickly get all the heroes featured in the mini-comic made AND plenty of villains no one has seen yet.” For more information about Eon Quest, fans can check out www.eonquest.com.

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.
