The Toys That Time Forgot Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 Announced.
March 5, 2018

At a panel at Toy Fair 2018 author Blake Wright announced that he would be moving forward with two additional volumes of his successful Kickstarter book on unreleased toy lines ‘The Toys That Time Forgot.’  Now he has made the same announcement to his backers and on the TTTF Social Media channels:


Hello all!

I just wanted to drop in quickly to let you know that I formally announced TOYS THAT TIME FORGOT VOL. 2 and 3 at Toy Fair in New York last month! Ideally, Vol. 2 will come to Kickstarter in February 2019 and Vol. 3 would follow a year later. You can follow the progress for the books via the Facebook page —>

And since nobody has asked (I take that back, I think one person did), I can confirm that I am dealing with a corrupt audio file for the ReSaurus podcast I wanted to share as part of the original campaign stretch goals. I’m still hopeful I can get it up and running… and I swear there is another copy of the file somewhere… so please bear with me as I search for a solution!

Much thanks!

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.
