Mattel’s DC Signature Collection Elongated Man
March 14, 2013

The March figure in Mattel’s DC Club Infinite Earths Signature Collection is none other than Ralph Digby – The Elongated Man.

It’s no stretch to say that Elongated Man was once a member of the Justice League… before he was a ghost detective, Ralph Dibny went the extra distance to solve mysteries, thanks to the special powers of the gingo fruit elixir! This fully articulated figure arrives in his fan-demanded 1985 uniform with swappable arm and hand. Also includes his trademark magnifying glass for all his snooping needs. Twitchy nose not included!

Elongated Man uses the skinny DCUC buck that we have seen with characters like The Creeper and Deadman.  He has a swappable hand that has a fist or a stretched, elongated right hand mimicking his powers.  He also comes with a magnifying glass that actually works!   Ralph is in his familiar Satellite era red, black and yellow costume.

The Elongated Man will be available to order March 15th, 2013 on MattyCollector.com.

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.
