#AFiScoopWeek Day 6 – @CollectDST Reveal – Batman: The Animated Series Gallery Zatanna PVC Figure
April 23, 2016

Welcome back to day 6 of AFi’s 11th Anniversary “Scoop Week.”  This is the first of 2 scoops we have for you today, but we didn’t get to everything we wanted to this week, so we will be extending the celebration into next week with a few more interviews, some packaged item reveals and a week of NEVER BEFORE seen toys that never got made.

This morning we are debuting the Diamond Select Toys  Zatanna PVC Figure from their Batman: The Animated Series Gallery line.



DST has been amassing a REALLY impressive collection of items based on the Batman, Superman and Justice League animated series.   When you see them all together like at a convention it feels a bit like they snuck up on you.  “Hey, where did all these cool things come from?!?!”


For instance this new Batman The Animated Series Gallery Zatanna PVC Figure is the 12th character in the DC Animated PVC figure line (Supergirl, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Talia Al Ghul [E: EntEarth], Batgirl, Catwoman, Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl, Superman*, Baman*, Joker*) *upcoming and the 15th DC Animated PVC figure overall, including a few variant exclusives (B&W Catwoman E: Newbury Comics, JLU Supergirl E: AFX, B&W Harley E: SDCC)!   That’s a really impressive line up.

And if that wasn’t enough the 9” scale PVC figures are in scale to all other Gallery and Femme Fatales figures!

Let’s have a look at the reveal:

WOW!   They did a DYNAMITE job on her!   Zatanna will be released in Fall of 2016.

Thank you to Zach and the DST team for participating and letting us reveal this gorgeous PVC figure!

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
