ZICA Previews Oscar Goldman Figure
April 11, 2014

Posted just moments ago over on the Zica Toys Facebook page is our first look at a figure from wave 2 of their retro Six Million Dollar Man line of figures:

 

Here’s the first prototype reveal for wave 2 of the Six Million Dollar Man figures. What you’re looking at is a digital sculpt that’s been rendered to resemble the actual figure. Some details may change and all the images I’ll be posting are still pending licensor approval. More to come over the next few days!

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.

    Sweet! Does the suitcase “explode” if you open it wrong?

    Behold! The ‘Accountant’ action figure with ‘briefcase accessory’.
    Why anyone would buy this is beyond me.

    an Agent Coulson custom in the offing.

    Nice Oscar Goldman likeness. Cannot wait to see the Seven Million Dollar Man and I am hoping they make a John Saxon Maskatron.. The only issue I have with this line is the exaggerated animated photos on the card. It takes away from the vintage look. They should use real photos to capture the vintage feel.

    • I have to disagree with you about the card art, Ozzie. I think it looks fantastic and has a strong vintage feel. I would encourage you to look at the art on the boxes of Kenner’s Six Million Dollar Man toys for a comparison, as those boxes used illustrations, not photos, and had a similar color scheme.

    Since Josh was born in 1995 of course he will not buy it. But for us old guys….I LOVE IT!
