@DC_Collectibles Batman: The Animated Series Batcave Playset- Unboxing and Sticker Update
December 19, 2017

Today we get to take a look at DC Collectibles recent Batman: The Animated Series Batcave playset. It has come to DCC attention that there are some adhesive issues with the original computer screen stickers that shipped with this set.  DCC has made a series of replacement stickers that current owners of this playset can get starting December 20th.  Plus we get to do an unboxing of this amazing set for those that have never seen one in person/loose.  Check out the video below for all the details!

 

The official announcement on the replacement stickers as posted on DC Collectibles Facebook page:

It seems that The Joker is up to his old tricks again and tampered with the vinyl decals of the Batman: The Animated Series Batcave set causing “anti-adhesion” defects. Batman and #DCCollectibles are aware of this glitch and are issuing free replacement stickers that will be delivered to retailers by December 20th. The new interchangeable stickers mirror the original decal designs and provide better adhesion. All citizens of Gotham City who have purchased the Batcave and are experiencing “anti-sticky” problems, should contact their point-of-purchase retailer and request a free replacement sticker sheet. For those still planning to buy a Batcave set, a new sticker sheet will be supplied with your purchase.

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.

    This thing looks pretty big. If I was to buy one how would I know for sure if I’m buying the one with fixed stickers?

    I have to say that DC Collectibles have been having manufacturing problems. First the Batman Animated figures with broken feet, arms, & hands. Then the Batman VS Harley Quinn battle statue that couldn’t be assembled due to pegs not fitting into holes. Finally, the sticker mess with the Batcave. Someone needs to be on top of these releases. These items aren’t cheap and should not have these kinds of problems.

      I dunno about the “aren’t cheap” bit. You can often find various BTAS and TNBA figures for £7.99 each (and the wave 1 figures are the fixed versions without the visible peg-holes in the upper thighs) in B&M stores rather than the £19.99+ they are in places like Forbidden Planet. I got the Batman/Robin/Bat-signal set for only £16.99. The huge Batmobile is currently about £45 on Amazon UK. 🙂
