Walking Dead Minimates Series 4 Coming to Toys “R” Us!
August 5, 2013

Diamond Select Toys recently unveiled the specialty assortment of Walking Dead Minimates Series 4, based on creator Robert Kirkman’s long-running horror comic which inspired the TV show of the same name. Well, now they’ve unveiled the Toys “R” Us-exclusive assortment, which features six brand-new figures based on the artwork of series artist Charlie Adlard!

Based on the famous Prison vs. Woodbury storyline, the assortment includes new, exclusive figures of Rick Grimes, the leader of the main band of survivors, and the Governor, the sadistic ruler of Woodbury. Both depict the characters as they appear towards the end of the storyline, bearing the severe injuries inflicted upon them by the Governor and Michonne, respectively. Both figures are exclusive to Toys “R” Us, and each comes with his own exclusive walker, the Gunshot Zombie and the Biker Zombie, respectively.

Also in the assortment are the sword-wielding Michonne (in her poncho) and a pre-conflict figure of the Governor, both of whom are also available in the specialty store assortment. However, the specialty-exclusive figures of Woodbury goons Gabe and Bruce have been replaced by two new zombies! Michonne comes with the Crawling Zombie, who has a lower body piece that allows him to drag his severed torso along the ground, and the Governor comes with the Jaw Zombie.

Each Minimate stands 2 inches tall and comes with a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories. Look for Series 4 in stores September, at Toys “R” Us, specialty stores and comic shops! To find your nearest comic shop, visit comicshoplocator.com!

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.
