October 16, 2012

Zombies & Toys has a Halloween exclusive treat with a trick!

Celebrate your favorite holiday with a Halloween edition of Z.O.M.B.I.E. toys available exclusively through Zombies & Toys.  From the folks at October Toys, this translucent orange edition contains black glitter and will live longer than the rotting pumpkin on your porch.  A word of caution, however, as this treat has a trick!  This exclusive will only be available for purchase during the month of October.

It only seemed appropriate that a pumpkin-themed zombie toy created by a company called October Toys whose logo is a pumpkin only be made available during the month of October through a store that sells only zombie toys.

Zombies & Toys, LLC was founded in 2008 and has quickly become the leading one-stop shop for everything undead.  Widely considered the preeminent online resource for fans of the living dead, Zombies & Toys has amassed a horde of nearly 30,000 monthly visitors and growing.  Join zombies and survivors alike in search of news and reviews, art, community events, games, and braaaiiins!

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.
