Two Exciting New Vehicle Lines to be Introduced at Skullduggery’s 2019 Toy Fair Booth
January 22, 2019

Knuckle-Headz™ Head Poppin’ Racers

New Head Poppin’ Knuckle-Headz will debut at the 2019 International Toy Fair in New York City next month.  With an initial collection of six Knuckle-Headz characters, this entertaining new line combines an approximately 1:43 scale vehicle with a powerful pull-back motor and spring-triggered, grimacing, character heads.  Kids ages 3 and up will faceoff by pulling back the Knuckle-Headz, aiming at their buddy’s vehicle, and letting them peel out.  With a head-on crash, one or both noggins will pop up to 12 inches into the air.  Who can keep their head from poppin’ off in a best of nine Knuckle-Headz showdown?  With an initial ship date of April 2019, production samples will be displayed and demo’d in booth 341.  Preorders with aggressive show specials will be offered throughout Toy Fair.  Cost $15/MSRP $29.99.


Remote Control Marble Racers

New RC Marble Racers will also debut in booth 341 next month.  As the third product in the Marble Racers collection, the RC version takes this classic toy to new heights!  The rear-wheel drive, 1:24 scale race car makes hairpin turns while exhibiting wild drifting motions as drivers attempt to maneuver through racing cones and other obstacles.  With a tri-colored, 1 ¼ inch diameter light-up marble lodged in the racer’s translucent core, watch the speedy car light up the dark. Powered by a lithium polymer battery and rechargeable with the included USB charger, this new addition to the Marble Racers line is sure to provide countless hours of racing fun.  Cost $6.50/MSRP $12.99.

Make sure you make time to stop by booth 341 to play with these new products, and checkout the exciting new additions to the Perfect Craft line, including cast your own Picture Frame and cast your own Memory Tile kits.

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 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.
