STATUES AND BUSTS

COVER GIRLS OF THE DC UNIVERSE: RAVEN STATUE

DESIGNED BY ADAM HUGHES
SCULPTED BY JACK MATHEWS

MISTRESS OF SHADOWS!

Scion of sorcery and souls, this child of the dark reaches toward the light. With an interdimensional demon lord for a father and a human for a mother, Raven stands between worlds, making her a master manipulator of shadows and darkness.

As a telepathic Teen Titan, Raven uses her psionic abilities to read minds, and as an empath she channels emotions – including inflicting illusions ranging either uplifting or fear-based.

For Raven, it’s a constant struggle between dark and light … good vs. evil.

Based on the variant cover of TEEN TITANS #88, this statue is hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain, measures approximately 10.875” high x 8.5” wide x  6” deep, and is packaged in a 4-color 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, 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.
