(BALTIMORE, MD) – (September 10, 2014)-MEDICOM Toy Corporation delivers a new take on Christian Bale’s Batman with The Dark Knight Rises Miracle Action Figure (MAFEX) and Batpod.  Both are great additions to any Batman fan’s collection, these one-of-a-kind figures are scheduled to ship exclusively to comic book specialty shops in May 2015.


Based on Bale’s appearance in the third movie of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises Action Figure 2.0 (Item Code: SEP142379, SRP: $49.99, pg 500) comes packed with multiple hands for action poses, multiple faces with different expressions (including a cowl-less version), and the EMP Rifle. Standing 6″ tall, this figure is one of the most detailed Batman figures on the market today!

One of Batman’s memorable vehicles from The Dark Knight Rises is the Batpod (Item Code: SEP142380, SRP: $99.99, pg 500). Recreated by MEDICOM, the two-wheeled vehicle was utilized by Batman and Catwoman in their desperate battle to save Gotham City from Bane. Scaled to match the Batman Miracle Action Figure (MAFEX), the Batpod can be displayed on its own or with the Batman figure riding it.
Pre-ordering these figures from comic book shops is strongly encouraged to ensure fans get them when released. Find a comic shop at www.comicshoplocator.com to pre-order today.

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, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.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.
