April 3, 2015

Clear some shelf space for today’s big news! Official World’s Greatest Heroes playsets are coming later this year! Repros of The Batcave and Aquaman vs. The Great White Shark are on the way!

 

Figures Toy Company is expanding their DC Comics World’s Greatest Heroes license by reproducing two of the most popular Mego sets of the 70’s: Aquaman vs. The Great White Shark, and The Batcave!

A reproduction of its 70’s counterpart, The Batcave is the perfect compliment to the vast array of Batman figures that have been released by Figures Toy Company. The flashing Battery Operated Batsignal, Batpole, Batcomputer, and Secret Entrance (to keep those pesky villains out) features are all present here in Batman’s lair. Collectors can get ready to clear some shelf space, as The Batcave is a giant 3 foot playset that can be utilized with any of Figures Toy Company’s 8 inch retro action figures!

Aquaman is included here as well, in all his fully poseable, 8 inch retro figure form.

These sets will arrive later this year, so you have time to make some room for these awesome additions to the World’s Greatest Heroes line!

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.
