(BALTIMORE, MD) – (October 16, 2014)– MEDICOM Toy Corporation debuts its final figure from the Christopher Nolan Batman film series with the Selena Kyle Catwoman Miracle Action Figure (MAFEX). The lady in leather is scheduled to release in comic book specialty shops late July 2015, completing the line of Nolan’s Batman Trilogy figures.

The sultry burglar-turned-heroine Selena Kyle as portrayed by Anne Hathaway in the 2012 blockbuster film is recreated as The Dark Knight Rises Catwoman Figure (Item Code: MAY148369, SRP: $49.99, page 494). This sassy Selena is just over 6″ tall, with interchangeable hands and has flexible arm and leg movement to move and pose in stances as seen from the movie.


The Catwoman Action Figure pairs purrfectly with The Dark Knight Rises Batman Ver. 2.0 Action Figure(Item Code: SEP142379, SRP: $49.99) and also with the fast-paced Batpod (Item Code: SEP142380, SRP: $99.99), both scheduled to release in May 2015.


“Now fans can collect and showcase not only the most memorable but also impressive characters from the Batman trilogy,” said Purchasing Manager Eric Burkhardt. “These figures contain so much detail as they mirror the design and characteristics of the movie actors while allowing collectors the opportunity to continuously modify the way they look with the interchangeable accessories.”

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 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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
