Here are the full details straight from the horse’s …ahem… Horsmen’s mouths:

Four Horsemen fans! Power Lords fans! Wayne Barlowe fans! Cake Boss fans! The episode of Cake Boss that we filmed during Toypocalypse 3 in February will be airing on TLC on Monday, June 17th! We revealed the upcoming Power Lords action figure line we’re working on at the show, and not only did the original character designer of the Power Lords – Wayne Barlowe – make an appearance at the show, the guys at Cake Boss made us an incredible cake featuring a bunch of Power Lords characters and the incredible Volcano Rock! Here’s the official description of the show straight from TLC…

“CAKE BOSS Ep. 611: SNOWED OUT After months of hard work on the new Carlo’s Bakery, a blizzard threatens to delay the grand opening. With a big decision to make, Buddy tries to fill the bakery cases while the new employees learn to juggle their toughest clients: Buddy’s sisters. Meanwhile, Mary takes a cake order for an action figure volcano cake, but clueless in the ways of boys toys, she asks Ralph to take the lead on design. Will Ralph be the hero who saves the day, or will an exploding volcano cake be his demise?”

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.
