Mezco reveals Living Dead Dolls Series 17- Urban Legends
December 19, 2008

We all know them, things that happened to a friend of a friend, stories everyone swears are true. 
They are, Urban Legends. Now, for the first time, the Living Dead Dolls immortalize five of the most infamous legends: 
 
THE HOOK– Parked on a dark road, a bulletin comes over the radio that a criminally insane patient has escaped the asylum. What is that scratching on the car door? Could it be the escaped lunatic? He comes complete with removable hook. 
 
THE VANISHING HITCHHIKER– He found her alone on a desolate road on a dark night, he offered a ride. The next day, he remembers he left his jacket with her. He returns to retrieve it only to find, did she really exist in the first place? Complete with letterman jacket. 
 
THE UNWILLING DONOR– Waking up dazed and in a bathtub filled with ice, what’s that crudely stitched up wound on her side and note by the phone? She has become THE UNWILLING DONOR, complete with kidney. 
 
SPIDER BITE– Returning home from a tropical getaway, she noticed a small bump on her cheek. Thinking it is just a pimple she continues to apply cream, until one day… 
 
BLOODY MARY– Only the brave or foolish would dare to stand in front of a mirror in a darkened room and call her name thirteen times. Once summoned, her price must be paid…in blood! She comes complete with mirror accessory. 
 
Some legends aren’t born, they’re dug up. 
 
Each doll comes packaged in their own coffin complete with urban legend.

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, 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.
