Zombie Wolverine on the Rampage!
July 20, 2007

Wolverine is the best he is at what he does… including killing his former super hero colleagues, taking out Galactus and eating half the brains left in New York!  Based on the hugely successful Marvel Zombies franchise, this exclusive six-inch Zombie Wolverine bust features the iconic hero as never before – complete with exposed born, torn flesh and a truly Hulk-sized appetite for destruction!

Marvel Zombies began in the pages of Ultimate Fantastic Four as part of an alternate universe filled with zombi-fied versions of Marvel’s star super heroes.  Gone were the heroic ideals and dedication to saving innocent lives, replaced by a gut-wrenching, action-packed look at the end of a universe at the hands of its heroes.  Starring in the miniseries, Zombie Wolverine has to battle his newly-undead enemies, deal with the loss of his healing factor and figure out how many one-armed Canadians it takes to change a light bulb!

This six-inch exclusive bust will only be available domestically through Comic Statues and will be limited to just 500 pieces with an international edition released through standard channels.  Sculpted by Rudy Garcia, each bust will also feature a hand-numbered base with matching box and Certificate of Authenticity.  For more information, please visit http://www.comicstatues.com.

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.
