AFI 7th Anniversary Scoop Week Day 5 – Mattel DCSC Mirror Master
April 27, 2012


As part 1 of our Mattel reveals, we have Mirror Master from Mattel’s DC Signature Collection/Club Infinite Earths subscription line.   Right about now you are saying, “but we’ve already SEEN Mirror Master.”  Yes.  That’s true.  We saw him at Toy Fair.
What we haven’t seen is the package with the bio… AND the fact that the figure now has two open hands that can hold both his guns.  He’s holding both of them in the package.   At Toy Fair the figure was shown with one open hand and one fist.   Since his reveal fans have been asking for a change tot the figure to two open hands so that he could use both weapons.  Mattel heard our pleas, looked into it and were able to change it in time, so that is the version we are getting.   The fans asked, Mattel listened, we all win!
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! The other new piece of information for this figure is that it also comes with interchangeable mirror gun barrels!  You can swap out and build the open and closed versions of his mirror guns with the two that are already attached and the two that come in the package.  A very cool feature for this Flash rogue.
Thanks to Mattel for letting us break this news.
We’ve got one other Mattel reveal and 2 Mattel interviews still to get to in the next few days so keep your eyes right here!

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.
