DAY 2 SNEAK PEEK:  RAGE (Mera)

DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game previews continue with Mera!

Queen of Atlantis and wife to Aquaman, Mera rallied her people in the wake of a planet wide crisis and became the leader of a rebel army determined to take vengeance for the destruction of Atlantis and the death of Aquaman. After the battle was won, she agreed to have the body of Aquaman moved to Atlantis…only to find he had risen from the grave as a Black Lantern. The desecration of the man she loved ignited a new fury in Mera, leading her to the front lines of the battle against the Black Lanterns and the Blackest Night…and earning her a place in the rage-powered Red Lantern Corps!

DAY 3 SNEAK PEEK:  AVRICE (Lex Luthor)

DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game Lex Luthor redefines “power suit.” Since childhood, Lex Luthor refused to let anything stand between him and what he desired. Though born to wealth and status, Luthor wanted always wanted more, building a path to power paved with suspicions, accusations, and corpses. In the Blackest Night, Luthor refused to aid past allies and strived  only to save himself and what belonged to him–proving himself the perfect candidate for a greed-fueled orange power ring! The DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game will be in comic and hobby stores on May 12, 2010. The Starter Game includes everything you need to play HeroClix: seven HeroClix figures, the 2010 HeroClix Rulebook, a map (The Oan Sciencells) and more – reserve your copy at your local retailer!

DAY 4 SNEAK PEEK:  FEAR (Scarecrow)

SCARECROW

Though his fear toxins gave him the ability to instill fear in nearly everyone, long exposure to the chemicals made the Scarecrow himself unable to feel terror–except when he was pursued by Batman. In the wake of the Dark Knight’s death, the Scarecrow was on the brink of despair–until in the Blackest Night the Scarecrow found a new purpose when he was given a yellow power ring and a place in the Sinestro Corps! The DC HeroClix Blackest Night Starter Game will be in comic and hobby stores on May 12, 2010. The Starter Game includes everything you need to play HeroClix: seven HeroClix figures, the 2010 HeroClix Rulebook, a map (The Oan Sciencells) and more – reserve your copy at your local retailer!

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, 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.
