@MOOSETOYS LAUNCHES #DISNEY #CROSSYROAD MERCHANDISE
March 30, 2017

 Moose Toys, a top toy company in the U.S, and Disney today announced a new toy line for the hit mobile game Disney Crossy Road.

 

The global smash hit game features an all-new 8-bit design style for Disney’s iconic characters and was created in collaboration with Melbourne’s leading game studio, Hipster Whale. In Disney Crossy Road, players hop, dodge and slide their way through busy lanes of traffic. Since launching one year ago, the game has been downloaded more than 31 million times and has garnered nearly 170 billion in-game steps taken.

The initial collection includes collectible micro figures, backpack hangers and plush, and features a large number of Disney and Pixar characters who also star in the app. These include beloved characters from Disney and Pixar worlds, such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Buzz Lightyear, Simba, Baymax and more.

 

The collection will be available at select retailers starting April 1, 2017.

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.
