DCU Doomsday “Unleashed” Is Coming: Get the Final Figure from the Four Horsemen!
September 5, 2014

Mattel posted a small update yesterday on the upcoming DCSC Doomsday Unbound figure, with a new press photo of the figure with the torn cape:

It’s the toy we never thought we could make, but it’s happening! In a final farewell to the DCU Signature Series and the Four Horsemen, Doomsday arrives… bigger, badder, and totally “Unleashed!”

 

He was never supposed to see the light of day, but when the powers that be saw the amazing mock-up of this bad boy, they were completely blown away. We got the green light, and the Four Horsemen got to work. We’re stoked to offer this final figure to fans as we say goodbye to the DCU Signature series.

When he arrives later this fall,Doomsday will appear as he did in the best-selling DC comic of all time,Superman #75, where this menace from the stars killed the Man of Steel. This fully articulated figure stands 9” tall and in scale to the 6” tallSuperman™ figure. He includes the shredded cape of Superman™, which is removable, and arrives in huge window box packaging celebrating the completion of the 6” DCU Signature Series line.

Check back for all the details when he goes on sale. In the meantime, you’ve been warned… Doomsday is coming!

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.

    was wondering if he was going to come with any thing and surprise a removable superman cape. though collectors are going to have to have doomsday on a shelf of his own given his size for he would proably shelf dive . Mattel deserves props for coming through one more time for dc .doomsday the way he was ment to be in plastic big and nasty and in full glory. the one figure mattel said sorry will not happen. change of plans he is happening after all.
