UPDATED “TOYPOCALYPSE: A FOUR HORSEMEN RETROSPECTIVE” EVENT INFO
January 24, 2011
Scarabus figures to be debuted and sold in celebration of the “Toypocalypse: A Four Horsemen Retrospective” gallery show!
 
If you’ve been following the news surrounding the Four Horsemen’s first gallery show, Toypocalypse, then you probably know that they’re going to be selling black and white versions of their character Scarabus at the event.
 
Even though the Four Horsemen expect these special edition sets to sell out quickly, you’re not going to be completely out of luck if you can’t make it to the show!
 
 The Dark Talisman Scarabus & Light Talisman Scarabus figure sets will be available at the Toypocalypse show at the TT Underground Gallery, beginning the evening of February 11th, for $100.00 per set and will be limited to only 100 sets for sale at TT Underground!
 
 Then, the following week – to celebrate the closing of Toypocalypse – beginning at 9:00pm EST, on February 18th, the Four Horsemen will begin selling another 100 sets of Dark Talisman Scarabus & Light Talisman Scarabus through their online retail outlet, Store Horsemen, also priced at $100.00 per set - plus shipping. These sets will be virtually the same as the sets that are to be sold at the Toypocalypse event, with a slight, albeit significant, packaging alteration to be unveiled at a later date.

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.
