A fierce martial artist who uses an ultrasonic “Canary Cry” in her battle against evil, Dinah Laurel Lance has served alongside the Justice League, Birds of Prey, and many other famous heroes including her longtime romantic partner Green Arrow.

Dinah Lance stands triumphant on the field of battle, reaching for the stars while rocking her classic costume. The Justice Leaguer is posed leaning slightly on one leg, her body angled with both hands up and her right arm held straight into the air. Black Canary’s sexy costume consists of a sleek bodysuit, high heeled boots, leather jacket, and gloves, all in shiny black. Of course she also wears her iconic fishnet stockings and bright blonde wig! Dinah is intricately detailed in both sculpt and paint application with clothing elements, hair movement, and a beautiful bishoujo-styled face.

Sculpted by M.I.C., Black Canary stands 9 ½ inches tall (1/7 scale) on her specially designed display base. Display her alone or alongside other DC character Bishoujo statues from Kotobukiya like Batgirl, the Huntress, or Poison Ivy!

Available November 2015

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.
