Update From the Four Horsemen on OSM Alpha Phase 2013
August 20, 2013

The Four Horsemen just posted the following update on their Facebook page:

The wait is almost over! We FINALLY got the figures, boxes and stickers for the 2013 SDCC Alpha Phase Outer Space Men in a few days ago and they’re now in stock and being prepared for shipment. Included in these two limited sets are the Alpha Phase versions Colossus Rex, Gamma-X, Terra Firma, Jack Asteroid, Ohpromatem and Horrorscope. If you haven’t ordered yours yet, just check out the main page of http://www.StoreHorsemen.com/ to check them all out.


As for the shipping of the SDCC 2013 Alpha Phase Edition Outer Space Men, in order to save on shipping costs, all of the stock of those as well as the boxes and stickers for them were all delivered to SDCC for us and we were going to just have them shipped back to us here at the studio after the 2013 SDCC was finished in order to pack them up and ship them out to pre-order customers. We’ve done this same thing every year in the past, and normally we’ve been able to ship all of the SDCC Alpha Phase pre-orders out to customers within 3 or 4 weeks after the end of San Diego using this method and we’ve made it known at the beginning of the pre-order that the figures would ship after SDCC. For some reason our shipping was delayed by the trucking company for more than a week longer than we’d expected this time and the figures, boxes and stickers all just arrived the middle of last week. The figures have now all been boxed and stickered and will be shipping out to pre-order customers this Friday and next Tuesday. Sorry about the slightly longer than expected delay, but we think you’re going to love these things when you have them in hand and will agree that they’re worth the wait.

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.
