Early Look- Mattel's JLU "Gotham Villains" 4-pack
January 14, 2009

When I got home last night there was a box from our friends at Mattel with a bunch of new goodies in it for us to drool over.   

First up let’s take a look at the upcoming MattyCollector.com exclusive Justice League Unlimited "Gotham Villains" 4-pack.

JLU 4-pack Mailer Box 

When I first saw the mailer box/sleeve I thought it was a box of the JLU stands they are currently selling on MattyCollector.  It wasn’t until I picked it up that I realized what was inside. The 4 carded figures are shrink-wrapped and packed in this sleeve.



Gotham Villains 4-pack Loose 

These are 4 much needed figures in the JLU line.  It is the first time we are getting a Clock King figure, and this set marks the first time we have gotten figures of these versions of Scarecrow and Bane.  

Scarecrow is an all new sculpt.

Harley is the standard female body with new arms and head.

Clock King is the Two-Face body with a new hand and head.

Bane is the same body as Captain Atom with a new arm and new head.

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.
