October 16, 2017

New Action Figure Line Features Iconic Batman Designs from Award-Winning Artists Jim Lee, Greg Capullo and More

 

Exciting Summer Lineup Includes ‘DC Artists Alley’ Variants, ‘Dark Nights: Metal’ Statue and Life-Size Joker Cane

 

DC Collectibles is gearing up for a fun-filled June 2018 stocked with enough new statues, action figures and collectibles to please both DC’s most dedicated fans and those just starting out with their collections. Headlining DC Collectibles’ June releases is an all-new Batman Black & White action figure line based on the company’s bestselling statue line of the same name. The moveable 6.75’’ action figures will debut alongside the first wave of DC Artists Alley designer vinyls that will now feature three new black and white variants. DC Collectibles will also release a stunning 12’’ statue based on the critically acclaimed DARK NIGHTS: METAL comic book series and new additions to its Harley Quinn: Red, White & Black and DC Gallery lines.

After 75+ statues and counting, DC Collectibles is transforming its longest running and most popular line of Batman Black and White statues into highly detailed, articulated 6.75’’ action figures. The first wave debuts in June 2018 and stars Jim Lee’s Batman from BATMAN: HUSH, Greg Capullo’s Batman from BATMAN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY and Batman from the Super Hero’s first appearance in DETECTIVE COMICS #27.

DC Collectibles will also add three black and white variants to its first wave of DC Artists Alley designer vinyls that features the popular art style of Chris Uminga. Announced earlier this year, the upcoming DC Artists Alley line celebrates offbeat artists and allows them to put their unique spin on DC’s most popular characters. The first wave of figures, including the newly announced variants, showcase Uminga’s take on Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman.

 

DC Collectibles is also bringing to life the gruesome, axe-wielding Batman from Greg Capullo’s DARK NIGHTS METAL #1 variant cover as a 12’’ DC Designer Series statue. This original take on Batman will be joined by a new Harley Quinn: Red, White and Black statue by Jae Lee and a life-size replica of The Joker cane. The cane features an intricately designed Joker-themed handle and is an accessory sure to enhance your swagger.

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.
