The Bat

 

We are beyond excited for the upcoming Batman: The Dark Knight Rises movie, (set for release on July 20th).  In fact, we’re already standing on-line to get tix. That’s the kind of excitement we’re talking about here. And because we can’t wait for the movie, we’re releasing the Batman™ (The Dark Knight Rises Edition) X MIMOBOT®, featuring a brand-new a design inspired by the Christopher Nolan-helmed trilogy of movies. Dark, powerful, and blurring the line between hero and villain, is it the fear Batman inspires in the hearts of innocents and criminals alike that keeps your data safe, or is it the goodness that we know is at the core of the caped crusader? Get yours now!

 

The Bane

 

The League of Shadows has many assassins, many shades that flicker in the night.  In the turmoil and doubt that has bred in Gotham’s alleys following Harvey Dent’s fall, the city is again full of dark places, but no figure casts longer shadows than Bane X MIMOBOT.
An acolyte of Batman Begins’ villain and League of Shadows leader, Ras al Ghul, Bane is a revolutionary, an assassin, and is now one of the all-time most bad-ass villainous MIMOBOT flash drives ever released! Want to get your hands on your very own Bane x MIMOBOT? Come see us at San Diego Comi-con!

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.
