July 17, 2011

 

Manufacturer: Mattel

Release Date: July 2011

Wave/Assortment: 2011 Comic Con Exclusive (Available later on MattyCollector.com)

Packaging: Boxed as well as in a pulp molded package that resembles Swamp Thing’s face.

Accessories: base/stand.   Two Un-Men (exclusive to Comic Con purchase) a copy of Dr. Alec Holland’s journal.  Package is also a wearable mask.

Collect and Connect: None

Scale: 6"

Sculpted By: The Four Horsemen

Notes:  This fan-demanded character is available for the first time in the DC Universe and is the first ever DC Universe character to feature endoskeletal articulation! Vowing to protect the environment and his swamp home, Swamp Thing comes in a paper pulp mold of a Swamp Thing head that houses Swamp Thing himself! No ordinary packaging can contain Swamp Thing, so he’ll be packed in a shipper box with the Swamp Thing head peering out. He’ll be available at SDCC first, then at MattyCollector.com. Pick him up at SDCC and he’ll arrive with mini-figures of Un-Men Ophidian and Cranius. The version sold at MattyCollector.com will not include the mini-figures.

Daniel Pickett
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.
