Countdown for DC Club Infinite Earths – DOOMSDAY! (Bound)
August 20, 2013

As we count down the final few hours of the 2014 Mattel subscription window we will take a closer look at the announced figures for the first quarter of the 2013 DC Club Infinite Earths sub.  You can order a 2014 sub with both monthly and quarterly shipping here at MattyCollector.com.

Doomsday Bound is the tier 1 over-sized subscription figure for the 2014 sub.   This version of Doomsday is of his first appearance containment suit from when he first came out of the vault.  This will be the first time we have gotten this version of Doomsday as an action figure.

The figure is based on the Kilowog oversized figure buck body.   Doomsday grew in size with each punch in the story line so if we get the tier 2 version he will be even bigger.

The harness on this Doomsday figure uses the same tech/idea as is used with many of the MOTUC figures with the buck body and the softer plastic  details clip over the torso.  Doomsday’s already got his right side freed from the constraints… it’s up to us fans tonight to see if he busts all the way out!

It’s looking a little bleak that we will see tier 2 at this point, but it would be amazing to get a full scale Doomsday for the line.  The original Doomsday was released in 2006 in the Superman line.   He is only slightly taller than the Superman figure.  This figure is over double the size of the Superman 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, 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.
