Weta presents: The Industrial Welding Mask from Doctor Who
June 11, 2008

Two millennia from now, a crippled spacecraft hurtles toward certain destruction in the roiling inferno of a star. Seeming bent on destroying the ship, a mysterious alien presence is possessing members of the crew, hiding its searing power behind the heat-shielded visors of their industrial welding masks. As the clock ticks down, Martha and the Doctor have just 42 minutes to unravel the mystery to save the mining ship, themselves and everyone else aboard.

The Industrial Welding Mask weighs in at a solid 900g (2.0 lbs) and is made from cast metal. It comes in a strictly limited edition of 500 and was created by Weta model maker and Doctor Who fan, David Tremont.

Dimensions: 6.5" H x 4" W x 3.5" D (170mm x 100mm x 90mm).

It’s the third in a series of six helmets from Doctor Who, exclusively available from the Weta website and at selected shows. It will be available for delivery in August/September and shipped from our local warehouses in the UK, US and New Zealand.

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.
