DC Comics Super Heroes Get the Plush Treatment
September 10, 2014




New DC Comics Plush Figures to Debut October 1 include Superman, Batman, and the Green Lantern Corps, Plus Many Others


Super Heroes can be cuddly, too—and the company with the super-powers to make them so is Bleacher Creatures. The innovative Pennsylvania-based licensing manufacturer, whose incredibly true-to-life plush figures of pro-sports stars has won them official partnerships with the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB, will launch a brand-new line of DC Comics plush figures on October 1 under license with Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) and DC Entertainment, representing the greatest Super Heroes (and Super-Villains!) in the galaxy.


Bleacher Creatures’ DC Comics roster includes Superman from Man of Steel as well as the Batman Classic TV Series, featuring Batman from the 1960s TV show and his fellow crime-fighters Robin and Batgirl, as well as his nemeses Catwoman and The Joker. Bleacher Creatures’ DC Comics comic-book plush will feature Super-Villainess Harley Quinn, the Teen Titans, and the Green Lantern Corps.

Other DC Comics–inspired entities to be represented in future Bleacher Creatures line-ups include Richard Donner’s Superman, and theatrical releases Green Lantern and The Dark Knight Trilogy.


“We’re thrilled to be working with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment to create these very special Bleacher Creatures plush figures,” says Matthew Hoffman, founder and president of Bleacher Creatures. “As the father of young kids who love Super Heroes—heck, as a kid myself when it comes to Batman and Superman—this is pretty much a dream come true. Our goal is for the plush figures to inspire both a sense of awe and a sense of play.”


“Bleacher Creatures is renowned for their fun, quality character plush, making them a great choice to bring the characters of the DC Comics universe to life with their unique product assortment,” says Karen McTier, executive vice president, Domestic Sales and Worldwide Marketing, WBCP.

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.
