January 17, 2016

“Super All In” Pledge Automatically Plussed Up


New York, N.Y. (January 15, 2016) – Zica and Captain Action Enterprises, are excited to announce an improvement to the Adventure People Kickstarter.

Zica’s recent negotiations with the factory have enabled an improved “Super All In” pledge level to the Adventure People Kickstarter. The two color variant Captain Action figures will now be included with the original “All In” set of 4 figures, at no additional cost.

New Zica Figures

Due to Kickstarter guidelines, Zica is not allowed to edit the original “All In” pledge reward,  but all of those pledges have now been converted to the new “Super All In” pledge reward.

This means that backers who originally pledged for the 4 figure set will automatically receive the Captain Action color variant figures, as will future backers at this level.


“We’re really excited to be able to offer this to the fans,” said Joe Ahearn of Captain Action Enterprises. “Last year’s Amazing Heroes Kickstarter, featuring Captain Action, was successfully funded and fans are ecstatic about that line. We’re thrilled to also offer this opportunity as another way to celebrate the Captain’s 50th Anniversary Year.”

The Adventure People Kickstarter is a new line with the aesthetics and articulation features that are popular with today’s modern action figure collectors. Standing 4” tall (1:18 scale), they will blend in perfectly with other figures in the same scale that share similar themes and designs.The first assortment will be broken down into two series, Captain Action and Comic Action HeroesThe First Wave of Adventure. The first assortment of 4 figures include Captain Action, Captain Evil, Action Jackson, and Jet Jungle.

“Initial response has been fantastic and we’re so very excited for this project,” said Craig Owen, of Zica Toys.

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
