EntertainmentEarth Gives Us the First Look at The Next Wave of Mattel’s DC Comics Multiverse Figures, Including the Batman 1966 Arkham Origins 4-Inch Action Figure
December 29, 2014

 Back in November we broke the news of a potential 1966  Batman in Mattel’s DC Multiver 4″ line.   At that time we were able to get confirmation from the Mattel retail side that something was coming… we just didn’t know what at that time.   Our speculation was that the figure wouldn’t be a true Adam West 66 Batman figure, but rather a figure based on the downloadable “skin” of the 66 Batman that could be played in the Batman: Arkham Origins video game.

Now, thanks to our friends at EntertainmentEarth.com we see that our speculation was correct, that the figure IS based on the Batman Arkham Origins skin, but we also get a look at two other figures in that wave, Deathstroke… and what EE is calling “Batman Beyond” but there WAS a true Batman Beyond skin also available in the game.   The figure they show looks more like Batman in his Arctic/Freeze armor from the game.   I suspect the figure shown will have a different name… and we might also really be getting a Batman Beyond “skin” figure in a future assortment.

The figures below should be hitting around February of 2015.

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.
