Countdown For DC Infinite Earths – Damian Wayne ROBIN
August 19, 2013

As we count down the final 12 hours of the 2014 Mattel subscription window we will take a closer look at the announced figures for the 2013 DC Club Infinite Earths sub.  You can order a 2014 sub with both monthly and quarterly shipping here at MattyCollector.com.

Our next installment is the newly announced addition to the line – Damian Wayne Robin.   This figure was originally scheduled to be in the retail Batman Unlimited line,and was shown as part of that line back in February at Toy Fair.   It was announced at SDCC that the 6″ DC/Batman Unlimited retail lines were cancelled.   There was a large outcry of fans that wanted this character and so Mattel shuffled some things around and late last week announced his inclusion in the 2014 Club Infinite Earths line.

This version of Robin, created by Grant Morrison was one half of his popular “Batman and Robin” book.    He features a new head, new cape, new gloves, new belt and new boots.   I suspect he will be available late in the year for the sub, Q3 or Q4-ish.

Daniel Pickett
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.

    I really couldn’t care less about this character, but I’m sure his inclusion will make someone happy.
