Diamond Comics and Medicom’s SDCC 2012 exclusive Batman Be@rbrick
June 14, 2012

Hot on the heels of last years Super Powers-esque Green Lantern Battery Be@rbrick comes the news of this years SDCC exclusive from Medicom and Diamond that looks a lot like a certain Super Powers wave 1 crime fighter:

 

It’s looking like its going to be a very Bat-tastic SDCC this year! Medicom and Diamond Comics have teamed up for an exclusive DC Comics Batman Be@rbrick wearing his classic grey and blue costume. This will be a nice break from all the Dark Knight Rises black costume’d Batman merchandise that’ll be available at the show. This 2″ figure, limited to 2000 pieces, will be packaged on a blister pack featuring a classic DC design. You’ll be able to find this exclusive at the Diamond booth (2401), Diamond Select Toys booth (2607) or if you’re not attending the show (or are and don’t want the hassle) you can pre-order this right now on Entertainment Earth for $14.99.

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.
