Vinyl Idolz: Shaun of the Dead

Vinyl Sugar is delighted to welcome a new set of zombie hunting Vinyl Idolz!

Shaun and Ed are ready to save some lives, grab some pints at the Winchester and wait this zombie thing out…or is it too late for one of them?

There’s no time like a zombie apocalypse to try to win your girlfriend back!



Coming in September!



Vinyl Idolz: Young Frankenstein

Alive! It’s alive! Our new Young Frankenstein Vinyl Idolz are alive!

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein – that’s FRONK-en-steen – never wanted to accept his family history, but then he found his grandfather’s diary and found himself changing his mind.

Igor is happy to steal a brain for you, as long as you don’t have your heart set on receiving the one you specifically asked for. An Abby Normal brain, perhaps?

Watch out for The Monster – if he escapes, he may try to kill you or even steal your fiancé! Hopefully you can play the violin and lure him back to safety.



Coming in September!



Vinyl Idolz: Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Hey bud, let’s party! Fast Times at Ridgemont High is joining the Vinyl Idolz line!

Jeff Spicoli is here to learn about Cuba and have some food.
We at Vinyl Sugar certainly agree that there’s nothing wrong with a little feast on our time!

Brad Hamilton just wants to finish paying off his car, but a job where he has to dress like a pirate is too much to take.
After being dumped AND getting fired a few times, Brad’s still waiting for the fun to start!

Just remember: No shirt, no shoes, no dice!



Coming in October!

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.
