New in the AFi Archives- JLU Warlord, Deimos, Supergirl 3-pack
October 26, 2010

This entry has been live for over a week and I mentioned it on the JLU board over the weekend, but "new" in the AFi archives is your first look at the next wave of JLU 3-packs for 2010.   Earlier in the month we showed you the Manhunter Robot 3-pack and the GL/Despero 3-pack.  Now we have the Warlord/Deimos/Supergirl 3-pack. (and next up the Batman: The Animated Series/Gray Ghost 3-pack).

This is the second use of this Supergirl mold.  The first time we got her was in a JLU 6-pack.   She comes with a stand, but still watch for warped legs because of the packaging.  Several fans have commented that they like the paint job on the face of this one over the original release.

Deimos is a great reuse of the Deadman torso.   There are a finite amount of characters that can use that torso (come on Disco Nightwing!) so it’s great to see Mattel getting their money’s worth on that mold and getting us a great obscure villain in the line. 

Warlord got a new left arm, but it’s got an "at rest"hand an not a gripping hand, so even if Warlord does see release again as a single figure it’s not likely he would be able to hold any sort of sword/accessory.   He looks great and really stands out on the shelf with the other figures… and come on!  Who ever thought we’d see WARLORD in this line?!?!?!?

You can see all of the pictures here in the AFi Archive entry for this 3-pack.




  

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.
