Joined by Creative Team Member and Artist Collaborators

Tempe, Ariz.,  August 31 – When comic book legend Stan Lee throws a party, everyone wants to attend. And lucky for us, we are all invited! Stan Lee’s Comikaze, Los Angeles’ largest pop-culture convention, opens on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Stan has invited his old friend, comic superstar, Todd McFarlane, creator of Spawn and the force behind McFarlane Toys to join him. Bring your favorite comic or action figure and get a FREE autograph from Todd. You will NOT want to miss the Todd and Stan panel, the funniest comic book panel on earth. McFarlane has created a special program cover, featuring Stan, which will only be available at the show. You know we are dying to show it to you, but it’s top secret, so you’ll have to wait a little longer. Look for the reveal over on our Facebook and Twitter sites soon.

Here’s where you will find Todd and company at the show.

McFarlane has had many successful artist collaborations over the years, and this year it was with Maxx242 on the best-selling Spawn apparel line for Famous Stars and Straps, and a co-designed Pearl Jam poster that sold out in less than 40 seconds. You’ll find Maxx242 and his team from Fighting 4 Dreams Studios (F4D) at booth #1059, next to McFarlane’s signing area. Maxx242, Jeff Soto and Jason Gallo will all be at the show and they want to meet YOU! These talented artists have worked with some of the top music and artist talent in the industries and also have had their work shown in top international galleries. They’ve even left their mark with some masterpiece street art across the country. The guys will have lots of stickers to giveaway and will have some of their amazing work for sale: artist’s prints, shirts, toys, and zines. We love their work and so will you.

Daniel Pickett
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, 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.
