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.

    The price on the TRU site for this set is now $139.99.

  • Ron says:

    $120! (+ tax). Talk about gouging. At about $25 per figure TRU will have problems selling it. I, like most other folks who want it will likely wait for the price to eventually come down.

  • noam choseed says:

    $140 now these folks are nuts the product just isn’t that good. I might have paid $85 but not this insane price.

  • DanMan says:

    I’m seeing $139.99 at the website! The price of $120 was already insane! They look pretty good, and I’ve wanted this set for awhile. However I’m seeing a lot of parts reuse and I can’t justify buying this until it’s at least 50% off!

  • Doug Hazlewood says:

    That is INSANE!!!!!!! I thought $85 was way too much. Iceman looks like crap (unless the actual figure looks better). Angel’s face doesn’t thrill me and Beast is too tall.

  • MrDoGood says:

    It’s like Toys R Us wants to go out of business.

  • mr Articulate says:

    Well the pricing is clearly insane, but here’s another complaint – static poses to display super articulated figures!
    Great that Beast is bigger than the others, but how does he look hunched over or crouched down? The way these things are posed they could have 5 points of articulation.

  • The Gene Lantern says:

    AND….they are removed from the site. How odd!

  • geoffdude says:

    Item listing was taken down now – it be gone… I used their online chat to ask them why, here’s what they had to say ““We are only web specialists here to help navigate the website. We do not know information about products..” — Yep, TRU has become one of those stores (K-Mart, Sears, Walmart more I’m sure) that just go through the motions on CS care. Too bad, they could have been a great company. This would have been the 1st thing I’ve bought from TRU in years… now I’ll wait, or just pass.
