Toys That Time Forgot Volume 2 is funded!
February 21, 2019

Great news from the Toys that Time Forget Vol 2 Kickstarter campaign!  See below for more details.

On the last day of New York Toy Fair… the campaign hit its $30k goal! That means Toys That Time Forgot Volume 2 WILL HAPPEN! I wanted to take a minute to thank you all for your continued support of my book projects. It means everything to me to share the world of unproduced toys with you.

Speaking of Toy Fair, if you are interested in seeing some photos from the show floor I shared quite a few with my friends over at Head on over there and check out the Toy Fair Gallery.

There is still over two weeks to go in the campaign and several stretch goals left to achieve. I think we can do it! So please don’t forgot to like, share and pledge! Tell your family and friends. Volume 2 is scheduled to be delivered during the month of October, so it would make a dynamite Christmas gift!

Thank you all again! And let’s keep this momentum going!

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.
