DC Animation Busts In to Your Local Comic Shop!
April 26, 2018

The long-running resin bust series for the DC Animated Universe has been going on for a few years now, and Diamond Select Toys has turned out a wide variety of Batman, Superman and Justice League characters. This week, four new characters hit comic shops and specialty stores, and all of them are must-have items for any DCAU collector!

Wonder Woman (item #NOV172426) leads the charge, blocking bullets with her magic bracelets, atop a pedestal base styled after the Justice League’s Watchtower space station.

Next, villains Clayface (#DEC172270) and Killer Croc (#JAN182370) team up to wreak havoc as a pair of oversized busts, sitting on diorama bases based on the art-deco architecture of Batman: The Animated Series.

Finally, Terry McGinnis, the future Batman of Batman Beyond (#NOV172427), comes back in a new pose, with wings extended, Batarang at the ready, and a base that references the angular buildings of the future Gotham City!

Each resin bust stands approximately 6 inches tall, and is limited to only 3,000 pieces. Each comes packaged with a numbered certificate of authenticity, in a full-color, hand-numbered box.

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, 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.
