Look who stopped by for a visit
June 11, 2009

These aren’t mine, but someone brought them by the office for me to look at so I couldn’t resist putting them in with the rest of my JLU and taking a few shots.

 I can’t WAIT for this set!

 

DOOM! 

As you can see I threw in a Bandai Teen Titans Beast Boy, just for scale.

 

Mento was still carded so he didn’t get to join in the shot.  but I did get to see him and he looks great!  Robotman/Cliff Steel is 75% a new sculpt with new head torso and arms.  Only the legs have been redone.

You’ll be seeing more about these guys on the site soon!

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.

      You’ll never see the Doom Patrol at retail. They’re the last Matty Collector 4-pack this year. Should go on sale around Sept-Nov area.

    That’s just fantastic. Can’t wait to add them to my collection. And you’re right – Robotman looks even bigger there than he did on the ebay pics. Beautiful.

    I only got about 30 of them so far. I didn’t even know there were doom patrol figures. I really like Shiera, but where’s her “Hawkgirl” costume? And This Is The Most Impressive One I’ve Seen On The Sites Yet☺☻♥♠♣♦◘• YOU GO DUDE!!!!!!!!!
