This week on The Collectors Show, we will be talking with Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett, one of the founders of Action Figure Insider (AFI).
Their goal at AFi has always been to provide a clean, clear toy news site that focuses on creator input and ongoing , exclusive content instead of just press releases and the occasional photo feature. With ties to virtually every toy company in the action figure industry including Mattel, Hasbro, NECA, Mezco, McFarlane, BifBangPow! and DC Collectibles, a s well as contacts in the video gaming industry and major Hollywood studios Daniel and his colleagues keep connected in order to bring their readers the latest and most accurate news.
In their year history AFi has been a regularly featured toy news site on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment. AFi content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, USA Today’s “Pop Candy” blog,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. In addition, we have been interviewed on NPR by Alison Stewart as a featured story.
