AFi First Look – Mattel’s DCSC, Club Infinite Earths Mirror Master
June 13, 2012

We got a big box of review samples from Mattel this week so get ready for a lot of features on new Mattel stuff, including a lot of the Comic Con exclusives!

First up we have the DC Signature Collection figure for August – Mirror Master!

Ah… it feels good to get another Flash Rogue.  Mirror Master makes his Mattel 6″ debut as part of the DC Signature Collection, Club Infinite Earths line.  When we first saw MM at Toy Fair back in February fans were a bit disappointed that it looked like he would have two guns, two working holsters, but only one open hand that could hold a gun.  The other hand would be a fist.  But, as revealed during out 7th’s Anniversary “Scoop Week” Mattel made the changes in time and not only did Mr. McCulloch get two open hands, but they also surprised us with reconfigurable mirror guns.   You have the option to have them in either open or closed mode.   They fit in the holsters without either attachment.

Mirror Master has the standard DCUC articulation.  He will ship to ‘Club Infinite Earths’ subscribers and be available on in August.

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,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, 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.
