DC Collectibles Interview – Batman Black and White Statue #50
August 28, 2013

Today we have an exclusive interview with DC Collectibles’ top brass Jim Fletcher and Kevin Kiniry about the 50th release in DCC’s Batman Black and White statue line.  That is significant because today is the release of the Sean Murphy designed, Jonathan Matthews sculpted statue and a major milestone in the landmark statue line that started way back in 2005.

In the interview they drop a few hints on some upcoming designers for the line and possible characters that might make an appearance, so pay close attention.


But that’s not all, because not only do we have this exclusive interview with the DC Collectibles leadership, but we also get to debut the variant cover of the upcoming Batman Black and White comic book from DC Entertainment.  This variant cover features the very statue we are taking a closer look at in this feature.  Issue #! of the new Batman Black and White comic will hit stands Sept. 4th.


Still not enough for you? Well then how about a sneak peek at the recently announced Bruce Timm designed Harley Quinn Batman Black and White statue:



We still have more… but first you’re going to have to listen to the interview:

The good people at DC Collectibles were kind enough to send over a sample of the new Sean Murphy Batman statue, so now instead of just listening to us talk about it you can see all the detail and power in this brand new piece! Check out the full turnaround in the gallery below:

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.
