Mattel’s DC Signature Series – ICE
June 15, 2014

I’m not going to re-hash the heartbreak us fans of Mattel’s 6″ Four Horsemen sculpted DC Comics line are experiencing currently.   The line is winding down with the last few figures, despite the recent announcement of Mattel extending their reign the DC Comics master-toy licensee for another 3-5 years.    This week we see the release of the DC Signature Collection Ice figure.  Ice would have been a huge “missing” in the line if we didn’t get her since we got Fire as part of the subscription last year.

We got hook hand Aquaman last quarter, Ice this quarter and will get Superboy next quarter

Ice comes in the standard box packaging we have seen with the run of the Club Infinite Earths subscription.  The box ships in a white outer mailer box.   I’m a little surprised the DCSC figures didn’t switch over to the brown recycled materials mail boxed that the MOTUC sub shifted to this year.   For copyright purposes she is labeled as “DC Comics Ice.”

 

Tora Olas afsdotter is a princess from the Ice-people of Norway, born with the ability to project ice and snow from her body. As a member of the Global Guardians she meets Fire, and the two become an impressive crime-fighting team and eventually join forces with the Justice League to help stop Doomsday. This long-awaited DC Comics figure arrives with a clear plastic snap-on energy blast and her signature white hair.

ICE’s “ice blast” accessory – Ice comes with one accessory, a clip on “ice blast.”   This translucent piece clips onto the figures of the figure.

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.

    I still don’t see why they don’t keep this line going. Even if it was for convention exclusives. There are so many figures they could still do, some without even any new sculpting.

    Hard to keep a line going as a convention exclusive when you don’t plan on attending the 2nd largest con in the states, NYCC

  • demoncat_4 says:

    other then ices face once again the four horseman nailed one of the dc females as one of the very last of the line.too bad it did not get enough support to continue.at least fans have fire and ice now on their shelves.
