Mattel’s DC Signature Collection – Elasti-Girl
October 12, 2012

This figure is currently on display at the Mattel booth in NYCC2012 but thanks to Mattel we are able to bring you this closer look:

Hollywood is used to starlets shrinking down a few dress sizes, but actress Rita Farr has a much bigger issue. As Elasti-Girl she can grow to towering heights or shrink to microscopic size… not a good look for the red carpet but very handy as a core member of the Doom Patrol. This over-sized figure also arrives with a mini Elasti-Girl figure!

On sale this month on is the 2nd quarterly over-sized figure in the 2012 DC Club Infinite Earths subscription, DC Signature Collection – Elasti-Girl.  Elasti-Girl aka Rita Farr is a highly anticipated, much requested figure that adds another teammate to our Doom Patrol.  This is exactly the kind of figure that many fans want in the subscription,  Elasti-Girl is built on the same over-sized female buck as the Collect-and -Connect Giganta figure.   It looks like the leg pegs might be glued in on the sample I received, but you can pop her arms off still.

The Mini-figure version she comes with is the smallest mini-figure we have gotten in the line to date.

As you can see from the box art whoever painted this one is a huge fan of Babylon 5 as Rita bears a striking resemblance to actress Claudia Christian.

That IS a custom figure of the Niles “Chief” Caulder in the images below.

Elasti-Girl will be available for sale October 15th on

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,,, 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.
