Let’s have a look at everyone’s favorite green, electric Brazilian fighter, Blanka! He packs a punch with his familiar rolling attacks and is now a 1/12 scale action figure! JET JAGUAR (1973) joins S.H.MonsterArts, celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the release of “Godzilla vs. Megalon.” Inspired by the 90s animated series, 5 Points Batman: The Animated Series contains everyone’s favorite crime-fighting duo and a variety of Gotham City’s most notorious villains, each complete with their own interchangeable heads, arms, and accessories. From the hit video game Batman: Arkham Knight comes a new Amazing Yamaguchi figure of the Dark Knight himself, Batman! Scarecrow, from the Batman: Hush comic series, joins the MAFEX action figure lineup! From the smash hit anime series My Hero Academia comes a new sinister entry in the Amazing Yamaguchi line: the villain Tomura Shigaraki! Hiya Toys’ brand-new James T. Kirk action figure stands at 160mm tall and faithfully reproduces his appearance from Star Trek 2009. Bandai has new model kits for everyone ranging from Gundam to dinosaurs!


From your favorite crunchy snack line Cheetos, comes Chester Cheetah – the icon himself! This 6″ articulated action figure comes equipped with stylish kicks and sleek shades, a realistic-sized Cheeto, a bag of Cheetos, fingers covered in Cheetle (Cheeto dust – from all the obvious munching)! From the legendary anime series Dragon Ball Z comes a new S.H.Figuarts figure of the Super Saiyan Goku! As seen during his final fight with Freiza on the planet Namek, Goku’s outfit has received severe battle damage but the full fury of the Super Saiyan has been unleashed against the tyrant! The King Spawn and Demon Minions action figure set by McFarlane has arrived! Memory Toys’ three Bear action figures are here and ready to battle against or with your favorite heroes. It’s the living embodiment of the Oxygen Destroyer, the only weapon to have ever (spoiler alert!) killed a Godzilla! As seen in the 1995 film Godzilla vs Destoroyah, this titanic Toho ULTIMATES! Destoroyah figure depicts the monster in its final form, measuring over 9” tall, 14” wide, and 14” long. No one would ever mistake Locutus of Borg’s bluntness for the more genial nature of his pre-assimilation identity, Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard, but subtlety has never been high on the Borg priority list. This 7” scale Star Trek: The Next Generation ULTIMATES! figure of Locutus of Borg features multiple interchangeable heads and hands.

Daniel Pickett

AFi founder and Editor-In-Chief 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

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 Bloomberg News,,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
