On Sale This Week From DST: Lady Death and The Walking Dead!
August 7, 2013

This week, death comes to comic shops! But don’t let that be a reason to avoid your local retailer – on the contrary! Make your way to the nearest comic-book-vending establishment (or specialty toy store) to check out the two new DST items hitting stores for New Toy Day! They’re both pretty killer!

Walking Dead Pet Zombie B&W Vinyl Bust Bank
DST’s popular line of The Walking Dead bust banks is adding another walker to its zombie horde! Based on one of Michonne’s chained walkers, this zombie measure 8 inches tall atop the hit comic book’s famous logo, and is crafted in durable vinyl with a slot in the back for your loose change. This new black-and-white edition captures the walker as he appears in the pages of The Walking Dead comic book with detailed sculpting by Eli Livingston. It’s not just a cool bank, it’s an amazing bust!  (SRP: $22.99)

Femme Fatales Lady Death II PVC Statue
The first lady of the underworld is back from the dead! Brian Pulido’s iconic comic-book creation Lady Death returns for a second PVC statue in DST’s Femme Fatales line, and this time she’s holding a jack-o-lantern – perfect for all those Halloween-loving horror hounds out there! Standing nine inches tall, Lady Death was sculpted by Sam Greenwell, based on Mike Debalfo’s cover to Lady Death: The Rapture #1, with art direction by Pulido. (SRP: $45.00)

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.
