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,, 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.

      I wanted to see Rosita in an action figure only because she is so fine on camera and in the comics plus she is still one of the only survival crew members still alive and they should make her with the army hat and shorts ak47 and knife , pistol and the works they should also do an upgraded version of her in plain clothes when she was in Alexandria kicking ass and looking good doing it.They should also do Shane Walsh the right way not half ass just changed the head I mean fans want a black shirt,with cargo pants and gun holster 16 points of articulation and with a pistol and knife and supply bag when he was running through the halls of that school , when he went on the run to the school with out the hat and not shaved head when he was still Shane and Major Bad ass man . That was a trade mark look for him with those grey cargos and stuff. And definaetly Beth man when Daryl was training her that was Beth at her Best.I know its a lot but belive me people would buy it. This is coming from a true fan that collects all the figures and comics and watches the show religiously . thanks Victor Vazquez

    I know there was already a season three Glenn action figure, but to see an Atlanta Camp season 1 figure, in my opinion seems very cool. He could come with a walkee talkee, a pistol, and his baseball cap. Also, they could make a Rick Grimes in the bloody walker guts suit, (same with Glenn). I’d also LOVE to see a Beth or a T-Dog action figure. That would be nice.

  • David says:

    I think you should make a beth she was a favorite amongst fans and now that she’s gone people like myself are gonna want to have it.

  • Trev says:

    Honestly I want a season 5 Glenn. I want a season 5 Daryl. Season 4 Governor. Season 2 Shane, also a zombie version of him. Season 5 Rick Alexandria cop with Judith. Lastly I would want a Deanna she seemed cool.

  • Trey says:

    I want to see a Beth figure, have her come with an interchangeable arm so you can her with a cast and without, the scissors and baby Judith. Tyreese with an interchangeable arm as well so he can be bitten or not, Judith’s carrier and his hammer of course. Also a Lizzie and Mika set

  • Adam says:

    Please, we need Theodre Douglas from season 2. He lasted three seasons, played a core part in the group, and deserves his own action figure, again: T- Dog, season 2

  • Lukas says:

    I know you guys have the lineup for series 9 already but I’m just going to give you my thoughts anyways. I would like to see a Lori figure that comes with a baby Judith or a Lori figure who is pregnant. Or maybe it could be a Lori who isn’t pregnant and it comes with a baby Judith but in the package it also comes with an add on stomach that can make Lori pregnant so she can either be pregnant or not be pregnant. Then also I would like to see a new Shane Walsh figure becasue the one that is out now in my opinion isn’t all that good becasue he has only one stance where he is pointing his gun whereas the other figures you can move their arms and legs usually. A Gabriel figure would be cool to have with his priest outfit on. A Sophie Peletier would also be cool with her teddy bear. Other figures who I would want would be Rosita, Tara, Sasha, Deanna and her husband, Pete and his death scene, maybe one of the Wolve people (just to put a bad guy in there), and Jessie. Also a Ron figure becasue I would like to see more kid action figures like Carl.

    Also, I’m just giving my opinion but I don’t think you should make any more action figures that have already been made a few times. Because people want to see new action figures like the ones I just gave above and Mcfarlane keeps on making the same characters like Rick, Daryl, and Michonne. Daryl has already been made like three times in different series. Michonne will have three characters but with different clothing coming up as of series 9. And Rick has had a lot of different ones also at least 5 or 6 I think. I’m not saying there bad figures but people just want to see new characters being made. I collect all of the characters but not ALL of TWD figures becasue I don’t want like three michonnes in my collection and like five Ricks. I want new characters added to my collection. I have two michonnes in my collection right now but I’m probably not going to buy the Series 9 one when it comes out. I have the Series 6 Rick in my collection and I might buy the Series 8 one and the one with the police outfit, Series 8.5 I think Walgreens exclusive figure, (just because it would be cool to have a police outfit Rick figure) but that’s all I would really buy of the Rick figures. However if a character does die like Tyreese did they and they already have a figure out they should get another figure made depicting there death scene like Tyreese might be made like that. But that’s my opinion and I just like to see new figures being made and not the same ones over and over.
