DC Collectibles’ THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS: SUPERMAN VS. BATMAN STATUE
April 15, 2012

I got to see this piece first hand that day I visited the DC Entertainment offices.  They had just gotten in the hand painted sample of the statue and had it behind closed doors. (I saw an unpainted sample too).  It’s a stunning piece and it’s really big.   It’s got real wires coming off of Batman and plugged into the grid, and there’s a surprise 3rd character in the base, inside the Batmobile.  Here’s the description from the official DC Collectibles page:

A FIGHT FOR THE AGES!

Who will win this epic battle as a heavily armored Batman faces off against the Man of Steel himself–Superman! Ripped from the pages of Frank Miller’s acclaimed BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, this statue is a timeless addition to any collection!

Statue measures approximately 11″ high x 11″ wide x 9″ deep

Sculpted By : Derek Miller
U.S. Price: 299.95
On Sale Date: Wednesday, August 29, 2012

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.
