It’s wabbit season!

For more than 75 years he has been the world’s most famous wisecracking rabbit. With his own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, it’s easy to see why Bugs Bunny was named the #1 greatest cartoon character of all time by TV Guide.

Now Mezco presents a super-sized action figure to match Bugs’ super-sized stardom. From the tip of his ears to the bottom of his lucky rabbit’s feet, he measures an astounding 24 inches tall.

Based on his classic appearance during the years of 1942-1946, the Oscar-winning rabbit features 9 points of articulation. Bugs Bunny comes with his ever-present carrot ready to take a bite and ask “What’s up, Doc?”.

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.

    I can see this being purchased only by the occasional wealthy die hard looney tunes fans or perhaps store owners for display purposes. Otherwise, the common action figure collector will pass on Bugs because he is over-sized and expensive. Perhaps Mezco will eventually make him small (around 4″ Scale), affordable and accompanied by other characters to be the first company to finally make a definitive line of Looney Tunes action figures. Bugs needs his buddies, like Daffy, Porky, Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote, Sylvester, Tweety, Foghorn Leghorn, Pepe LePew, Speedy Gonzalez, Marvin Martian, Gossamer, etc…. all animation icons.
