Ask DC Collectibles: March 20th
March 20, 2013

Posted today on the official DC Comics Blog:

Welcome to our latest edition of Ask DC Collectibles! This month’s topic was Injustice: Gods Among Us, the new line of 3 3/4” action figures inspired by the upcoming video game. Who will live and who will die? What will you ask? What will we answer? As the battle fury rises towards the April release of Injustice: Gods Among Us, Ask DC Collectibles takes a look at what is on your mind!

Jim Fletcher and Kevin Kiniry are angry…and highly articulated!


Injustice: Where are Doomsday, Batman, Joker, SHAZAM!, Catwoman and Bane?

Well, they are definitely kicking butt over in the game from NetherRealm Studios. As for the 3 3/4” line from DC Collectibles, if sales prove to be a knockout on our first waves of figures, you can expect us to explore the entire roster of characters. But we can tell you that some of the names you mentioned may already be sculpted and waiting for their chance to join the fight.


What accessories do the Injustice figures come with?

Sometimes even the greatest of heroes and evilest of villains need a helping hand. Some of the accessories you can expect to see will be knives for Solomon Grundy, a trident for Aquaman, Deathstroke will have a sniper rifle and Green Arrow will have his trusty bow.

In the right hands, these weapons are deadly. In ours, they’re actually a little cute.


Will the Injustice Nightwing figure come with escrima sticks?

We have accessories for some figures, and Nightwing is one as he comes equipped to kick some butt with his escrima sticks. Or if you want to get technical, hit some butt? Or maybe throw them at some butt? Uh…yeah, let’s move on.


Will there be any Injustice figures in the 6” style like the Arkham figures?

Check out the 6” Injustice action figures from Mattel! They are offering a few of the key characters in 6” and would love to see the interest from fans for more. As for DC Collectibles, we are living in the 3 3/4” world right now and are focused on getting you the character selection and articulation to reenact your favorite battles at that scale.

And finally, the secret character in The Flash two-pack can finally be revealed! Raven joins The Flash is a battle to the finish. Check the DC Collectibles Facebook page for a picture of the two figures in action figure awesomeness.

Or…you can just look here. But you should still like our Facebook page!

We had asked for questions about Injustice this time around, but we really appreciate all of your other questions and comments! We read them and are keeping them in mind for future Ask DC Collectibles sessions. Thanks for reading…and collecting!

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.
