Toy Fans,Great news for Young Justice fans! The deadline for the made to order Young Justice 2-pack has been extended until 8/31!Today is the last day of the original deadline, and we’re halfway to reaching the target goal. Based on that, the decision has been made to extend the pre-order period until the end of August.
As happy as that makes us, in order to make these figures we still need to reach the ultimate target by August 31st. If this goal is not met, it’s not going to happen. Extending the sale also means that we will need to push back the release date for these figures approximately three months, but weighing that option against the alternative of not having the figures at all, we opted for the extension.
Some of you may wonder why we are able to extend this made to order sale when we are not able to extend the subscription period. The difference is that the pre-order figures are not tied to a specific production date. As soon as we reach the required target we can go ahead and start production. The subscription sales are on a set delivery timeline that cannot be changed.
Remember, the only way to own the 2-pack featuring the 6” Miss Martian and Superboy figures is through this special made to order offer, and you must order by Friday, August 31, 2012, at 11:59 PM PT. If you thought you’d missed your chance, you just got a reprieve, but it won’t happen again!
Keep checking here to place your order and to check on whether we’ve received the minimum number of orders!
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.
