Mattel’s DCSC Larfleeze
April 15, 2013

This guardian of greed won’t lend you a hand… in fact, he’ll take yours right off if you have something he wants! (Orange you glad you’re not his enemy?) Larfleeze calls on an army of construct allies to defeat anyone honing in on what’s his. Although this fully articulated figure arrives with his power battery with handle, there’s no need for one because he grips it tightly in his greedy little hands!

The April DC subscription figures brings up the leader… and primary member of the Orange Lantern Corps – Larfleeze.   Previously we only had the orange lantern corps version of Lex Luthor.

There has been some speculation among collectors that Larfleeze was actually a figure planned for one of retail waves of DCUC, and once that line left retail he was re-purposed for the sub.  At one point he was scheduled to be in the “DC All Stars” retail line, before it was also cancelled.

Larfleeze comes with his orange lantern battery, which, unlike the orange Luthor battery, has a handle on it.

Larfleeze uses the newer lanky buck body with a new head, shoulders, fore arms and hands.  He has the double elbow articulation, but not the double knees.   He is however, missing the bicep swivel, most likely because of the sculpt of the new shoulders.

Larfleeze is the April Club Infinite Earths DC Signature Collection figure.  He will be available for sale on MattyCollector.com on April 15th, 2013.

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.
