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 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.

    Any idea where the meter was last year in the morning of the last day? I thought it was a bit higher than this, but I could be wrong. I hope it goes through, and if not, I hope that Matty does SOMETHING for the collectors who did sub-in this year and in past years . . . maybe a limited run of Doomsdays with a special ordering window for those who committed to the line this year? Then whatever’s left over can be sold at cons or at a regular Matty sale.
    If the sub doesn’t go through its going to be a huge dissappointment to those of us who have already committed to this line for the 2014 sub and Matty really should do something for that loyalty and perseverence despite all the problems this line has faced and that Matty has put subbers through.

    Ok so i have done my fair share of complaining about this line in the past few years but at the end of the day i do love it so, so much. I got my sub already and ampraying it goes through because i’ll be so dissappointed if it doesnt. Common guys save this line!

    Even though I have had a nightmare experience with Digital River I STILL bought a subscription as I LOVE the DC line and hope to somehow get that Aquaman & Ice to my collection

    hopefuly by a last minute miracle the sub lives. for after all given how mattel after so long of fans begging for a baf sized doomsday they offer him if the sub goes through that surely is reason enough to save it one last time. plus the fact doomsday could then be used for granny goodness to finish off the sub. hope by a miracle it survives like motu
