Get ready to dig into the trenches! After conquering the XBox One and PC platforms, the highly-rated Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is coming to the Playstation 4! Now all Playstation fans will be able to play the newest mine-blowing adventure from Popcap and EA, which delivers the depth of a traditional online shooter blended with the refreshing humor of Plants vs. Zombies. And soon there will be a whole new way to play: with action figures and Minimates from Diamond Select Toys! The toys hit stores next month, and DST is giving you the chance to win a set as soon as they launch!

Next month, DST will launch this line of “bloom and doom” action figure two-packs at comic shops, specialty stores, and Toys “R” Us.

– Chomper with Engineer Zombie
– Shadow Flower with All-Star Zombie

Daniel Pickett
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.
